    The Smell of Cinnamon Rolls
  1. Got an ETA? Can you make sure it has detailed sales stats & a post-mortem from Justin?
  2. I guess it was obvious to me but may not be for everyone, but It's basically a hint that you've reached as far as you can with Vella at this point, and you need to now move Shay along.
  3. Also, when can I order a Hexipal plushie?! Does it come pre-wired to dance?
  4. I finished this morning - what an incredible game! Everything about Act II has improved the game dramatically! - the puzzles were a lot more detailed, required me to pull out a notepad (yay!) and were FUN to solve! I didn't get stupidly stuck at any point (the team clearly avoided the temptation of introducing any of those "use a monkey as a wrench" type puzzles to choke on, as Oliver put it) and the game sensibly hinted and pushed me along the entire time. And ofcourse, the story and writing are terrific! The documentary and now the finished product have been absolutely incredible. I was one of those complaining about the length and difficulty of Act I's puzzles, but with Act II this has now been delivered in spades. I also didn't experience any bugs or glitches (played on both Windows and Linux no less), so great job to the DFA team on making it through that final crunch without leaving any (noticeable) residue! Thank you Tim, Greg, Justin, Lee, Oliver, Anna, Ray, Bagel, Camden, Peter and the rest of the incredible team! What a great ride!
  5. Go to your Broken Age humblebundle page to get a link with a VHX code that will create you an account on https://www.vhx.tv/. It is a video distribution platform.
  6. Thank you kindly. (( I've enjoyed being a part of this community here. DF will need to announce/kickstart another similar game to keep their fans engaged.
  7. Kinda related, but does anyone remember when we should be seeing the next documentary ep? Will it be with the launch or a while after the launch or right before the launch or ...
  8. Your English is perfect and I'm in total agreement - I couldn't resist watching this video either and I too am super hyped for Act II !
  9. This thread has gotten pretty derailed but I agree with KestrelPi's comments, and I suspect so do the majority of backers who've been watching the documentary and generally been keeping track of things. As to answer 2PP's question: I wonder if it's possible to capture a separate video discussion with Justin on his perspective on how the game overall has performed financially, what they might do different in the future, comparing it to working with publishers, etc. - something that other games aiming for crowd-funding may be able to learn from. I know this was touched upon about Act 1 in one of the documentary episodes, but an overall wrap-up with hard numbers would certainly be interesting. When DFA launched it was an almost unprecedented new form of building a game and hearing from the 'business guy' on whether it's actually worth taking this approach would be cool. And for those of you complaining about YouTube comments, try installing the http://alientube.co/ extension plugin - will give you reddit comments instead of youtube comments for videos.
  10. Could just be that they're stalking you KestrelPi.
  11. The real issue for them, and why this time around they won't do an embargo/early release, as Justin pointed out, was that they wanted the public to have the option to buy and play the game as soon as they saw reviews, as not being able to do so potentially hurt sales.
