      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. Daily Documentary Delays

    My few suggestions for future AFs as a 3 time contributor, and someone who really loves seeing the team's process at work... 1. No one from the video production company on a development team! Happy to see "The Gods Must be Hungry" happen, but can't help thinking how things might have been different had one of your key team members been able to contribute on the video production side. 2. Do more to set expectations. If you guys feel a daily episode is too much to keep the quality level up, then don't do daily episodes! Decide early and communicate early and often, even if it's, "We're going to do dailies, but each one will be out 2-3 days past," or, "We've decided to film the entire two weeks, and we'll turn it into episodes in a way that makes sense based on what we've captured, and it will be released several weeks past the actual AF week." Bottom line for me... I thought we were going to be watching every day, and that didn't happen. I'm not going to contribute next time unless the release plan is clear from the start. 3. Definitely drop the livestream if it gets in the way of the episodes. Totally agree on the series being more important. 4. More on the DoubleFine side and less on the 2PP side...I get the idea of wanting to invite other crews into this cool, creative week...but it makes the whole thing feel more disorganized from the outside. I like it being a "DoubleFine event". If other companies want to do their own Fortnight, more power to 'em and the more the merrier...in their own event. If they do cool and interesting stuff, I think a lot of AF fans would be happy to support them.
  2. Daily Documentary Delays

    Exactly...I don't want to be negative, but this is the least engaged I've felt in all 3 of the AFs because of the production delays. Like Franklyn said, the bundle is for getting the higher quality version after the fact. Those of us who just want to follow along kind of expected to see each video within a day or two at most. We're going into Wednesday, and last Friday isn't even up yet? Just kind of a bummer. Overall I'm still enjoying the process and watching the different projects take shape. *shrug* Just less so.
  3. Daily Documentary Delays

    Ahh apparently I was following the wrong or fake account. Anyhoo...maybe a link off the Double Fine account too?
  4. Daily Documentary Delays

    This. I've followed AF the last two rounds and got acclimated to watching the videos each night, ritualistically. I went looking on Twitter, random forum and Reddit searches, looking for any news I could find wondering what was going on with it being Saturday and no episodes for Thursday or Friday. At the very least I'd put a tweet out on the Double Fine account or something to make it easier to find, even if it's just a link back to this post. Anyhoo...looking forward to seeing more!
  5. AF14 2PP Daily Videos?

    Right on, thanks for the update.
  6. AF14 2PP Daily Videos?

    Yeah I think it was the AF2012 Postmortem video, or something along those lines? I'm hoping they do one for 2014 too. I really miss seeing the AF2014 "show" every night, it was a great way to wind down the day seeing something more creative.
  7. I was checking out my Steam downloads tab and saw a Best Buds download of 240ish MB from around 1:30am. It didn't show the day, so I couldn't tell if it was old or if something new was released?
  8. So I was browsing Reddit...

    Massive potential for a Big Leg and Big Leg Cat crossover!
  9. ..and the first thing I thought of when I saw this? "GAH you little pink bastards!" http://i.imgur.com/14H765U.jpg
  10. The Wicked End

    I've been getting the stabby stabby bits after the fire and haven't been able to do anything else, so I'm just going to screw around with it more later. It's a lot more interesting than I thought it was going to be, and I'd love to the chat system fully worked out. I almost think the whole pointing bit could be simplified down to just being a pink guy selector so that your speech is directed at them. Otherwise it feels a little pointless right now. But the core is there! I want to play more of all four of the games, which is just great.
  11. This method is working fine for me. The launcher not so much, and I think I hit a bug with the key too. I'll give it another run-thru tomorrow. You guys really need to get your hands on that newer Occulus Rift prototype and try it out again.
  12. Yeah having the same issue with LPBB. Humble says I've redeemed my key, but it doesn't show up anywhere - not in the list of all games, and not when searching. Off to check out the others though!
  13. I really, really hope you guys are able to share the initial sales figures with us early next week. It's bugging me for some irrational reason that we don't get to watch a counter of how many copies have sold... We wish you guys loads of success - rest up, and then get to work on Act 2!!! *whipcrack*
  14. It's OK, doccolinni, you gave me a good chuckle. I'm in agreement with the Internet/YouTube celebs thing. Get Felicia Day to play it. Make sure Wheaton is out there spreading the news. Did Elijah tweet about it yet? Ask Dodger if she'd be willing to do a playthru YouTube posting. Do some Facebook, Twitter, Google+ preformatted, easily shared posts. You guys are good at funny. Do some weird, hilarious shit that people will want to share.
