  1. Thanks for the great update and the unexpected loads of info! You've made my day Tim!
  2. I'll probably repeat myself somewhere down the post a bit for the sake of two topics on one issue. Reading some of the posts around, I needed to remind myself that we are not here to act like a bunch of executives who have never developed games yet lecture about development and budgets. I can understand getting frustrated due to a missed deadline, but I don't see the point in acting like we are the ones that will have to work rather than wait for a little longer. I mean, sure this is hard for everyone, we are eager to play a great game. But saying `oh, you should have known better` is just being a bit unfair. We shoud know better. We are backing a game project, not a new box of ball point pens. Haven't you seen any other games delayed? Go way over the budget? Even cancelled? And those were mostly the games that were finance by producers with tens of millions of dollars. We are here to show that gamers can back projects, understand the creative process is a bitch and avoid acting like producers. I saw some posts by people from the game industry… I’m also a game designer and someone from the industry should know better than to compare an initial budget with an ongoing one. So this is much much muuuuch better solution than I’ve heard from other developers out there. And I always wish we have the opportunity to develop our games without cutting anything cause the deadline is already dead. This is why I got all excited when I watched the first KS video and said `yes I'll back you till the world freezes and we all go to hell for a nice battle with rocker zombies!` Cause you know what? I prefer waiting for a studio that cares about the games for years if necessary, rather than waiting for big bucky players of the gaming arena who would never ever care for the gamers to write a note that expresses how they are doing. We are witnessing the whole process. So, I just can’t wait to see the game... both acts... Bottom line is… we are here to back DF so that they can develop a game freely… We are not pre-purchasing customers. We are backers. Love you all…
  3. Great episode... Great decision... I am not a fan of adventure games with episodes, but this is certainly different as you already mentioned. This is about making a point & click, Tim Schafer adventure, and playing it! So go for it... This is why we are all here to back you. Reading some of the posts here, I needed to remind myself that we are not here to act like a bunch of executives who have never developed games yet lecture about development and budgets. I always prefer a whole experience when I play a game. But I will always ALWAYS prefer a two-part game if this means Tim will not have to cut anything he doesn't want to. I saw some posts from people in the game industry... I'm also a game designer and someone from the industry should know better than to compare an initial budget with an ongoing one. So this is much much muuuuch better solution than I've heard from other developers out there. And I always wish we have the opportunity to develop our games without cutting anything cause the deadline is already dead. So, I just can't wait to see Act I and I'll be waiting for the rest gladly. Bottom line is... we are here to back you to develop a game freely... We are not pre-purchasing customers. We are backers. Love you all...
  4. Thank you Permafry_42! Looking forward to it!
  5. I totally agree with the different perspective note. Yet, I would rather wait until I hear an update, and avoid pressuring them. (Why irritate them just because I didn't hear an update. I don't think I would feel better in any way while I'm already struggling with a deadline.) I'm just one of the sunshines I guess. (Not supporting a game project due to this? I'm not sure if clouds are the only things that appear to you. ) Take your time and just drop a note whenever it's possible...
  6. Yay! Can I get an invite too? STEAM_0:1:23642852
  7. Esc during gameplay: Menu Esc during cutsceens: Skip One key to rule them all!
  8. Cannot feel any of the choices either... Agree with "Divide" instead of "The" I dont think I would like to see a point and click from you that starts with Broken. Sorry but I feel like if you use Broken Something it must be so perfect that you cannot say oh but there was is a major adventure game series with Broken something. How about: Divided Twain Twain Divided Double Divide Dual Divide Tale-o-Double Best of luck with the naaaame!
