      These Forums are closing!   10/04/2019

      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

  1. As Spaff recently announced, these forums will soon become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again. Let's share some happy memories of these forums! I have a few that spring to mind: the Broken Age board where we all took part in a historical game industry moment; the DF Game Club, where we all live-chatted in playthrough streams of a bunch of favourite games, often with the creators present (the best ones were of course the two games I worked on!); and the thread that started as a counterpoint to a particularly negative thread, but turned into an interactive text adventure. Thanks to all the DF staff, moderators and community members who made this such a friendly, engaging place to be <3 The Double Fine Discord is now the place to be, and it's getting ever busier, so I hope you all join us there! www.discord.gg/doublefine
  2. Easter egg on iPad?

    There's a video of it happening here: https://www.reddit.com/r/NintendoSwitch/comments/9u1r0j/grim_fandango_petrified_forest_glitch/
  3. RAD

    There's a lot of discussion between new players discovering stuff on the DF Discord!
  4. Loom remastered?!

    Apparently the legal rights are a big mess: https://www.pcinvasion.com/looms-tangled-legal-rights-may-prevent-a-sequel-or-remaster/ Perhaps now Double Fine have Microsoft's backing they could cut through the Gordian knot..? In the meantime, let's dream about what might be, with the help of this interview with Brian Moriarty on how he'd remaster it: https://www.arcadeattack.co.uk/brian-moriarty/
  5. GNOG free on Epic Games Store 8-15 Aug

    It hasn't gone live yet, but should be up soon. (NB - if you would like to have a CIVIL discussion about the Epic Games Store, please start a new thread in the Universe Outside Double Fine board. Any posts related to that in this thread will be deleted.)

  8. Farewell, friends <3

    Good luck with everything Cheese, and thanks for all the amazing work you've done with the community. Hope to see you here and on the Discord every now and again!
  9. Thanks! Well, in that case, allow me to plug some creative work of my own: The latest Dan And Ben game: Lair Of The Clockwork God. Pleeeease wishlist it on Steam if you have a sec, it really helps! Announcement trailer:
  10. Great to see this is still continuing in production from its humble Wizard Jam beginnings!
  11. No fullscreen option for PS4 port?

    Hi Doc, sounds like the game is working as intended and your tv is simply more widescreen than the game. It's not a 3D game so it can't simply change FOV or whatever to fit any screen. I believe DF did try to make sure that nothing important would be missed out if it was cropped for the more widescreen devices, though. Basically, it's like playing a 90s game or a 30s movie on a modern telly - pillarboxing is inevitable. I know this bugs some people but personally I don't see the issue - those black bars are no more distracting than the tv's bevel or the outside world surrounding it. I'd much rather have the full amount of visual information than have it cropped to fit my screen - it's like buying the Mona Lisa then cutting a few inches off the top and bottom because it doesn't fit the frame I bought from B & M.
  12. Comprehensive List of Licensed Merchandise

    Ohhh those are gorgeous. Love the black velvet designs!
  13. PC no sound via HDMI to TV

    Hi CQGamer, have you tried emailing support@doublefine.com?
  14. Ah, great, I look forward to seeing loads more cool stuff, then! Loving Sanic, btw.
  15. What's MM's attitude to sharing Dreams creations at the moment? I thought they were being pretty strict on it at the mo...
  16. We've also been discussing AI up-rezzing here - it would definitely be cool if GF got a good-looking HD background mod from this. Perhaps this combined with new character models could be Grim Fandango Deluxe's new raison d'être, @ThunderPeel..!
  17. I'm not sure I'd agree that it blows all of these remasters out of the water, but it's definitely very impressive and cool that AI can do this stuff.
  18. No cutscenes on Android

    Hi Moonman, have you tried emailing support@doublefine.com?
  19. Psychonauts 2 Kickstarter - figure survey/updates?

    Hi Draymora! As far as I'm aware, no surveys have gone out and no further info is needed from you at this time.
  20. 2PP Video Downloads

    Assuming you're referring to the making-of documentary videos (as opposed to the update videos, which can be seen on the Fig project page or Double Fine's YouTube page), they have not been released yet.
  21. 2PP Video Downloads

    Hi SFB, as far as I'm aware downloadable versions aren't currently available.
  22. Collector's Edition: "Hall of Brains" Names... ?

    Hi @Number 9 - no, they haven't collected names for that yet.
  23. Tim and everyone who has worked on or near Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade: The Action Game, Maniac Mansion, Monkey Island 1 and 2, Day Of The Tentacle, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, Psychonauts, Costume Quest, Stacking, Iron Brigade, Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster, Double Fine Happy Action Theater, Middle Manager of Justice, Kinect Party, The Cave, Dropchord, Spacebase DF-9, Broken Age, Massive Chalice and more: THANK YOU for providing endless hours of entertainment, for shaping my sense of humour and personality, for being upstanding members of the game dev community and pushing it forwards. You have tangibly shaped my life and probably that of millions of others. Thanks to Tim, to the guy who emptied the Lucas bins and co-designed Grim Fandango, and to everyone else, for dumping a massive load of amazing all over my astonished face for the past 30 years. Love, Ben
