    Mother died today. Or maybe it was yesterday, I don't know.
  1. Interesting! I hadn't even considered someone fleshing out his abandoned ideas - while a valid point, I don't think it is something that would prevent me from entertaining/enlightening interested fans (then again, I haven't had 1/8th the success Tim has). Also, I think only people like Schafer (and the kick ass team he has established at Double Fine) can truly execute a Tim Schafer game. Even if another game company got a hold of his journal, they might be able to make a game but it would lack the quirkiness and idiosyncrasies of Tim's games. Like your favorite band has its own unique sound or a great chef has his own unique flavor palette so do great game makers have their own distinct game ambiance/atmosphere.
  2. I tried to PM this to el Presidente but had no luck, so, hopefully someone (maybe the man, the myth himself) will see this and respond/have an answer. -------------------------------------- Original Message: Hello, Mr. Schafer. I hope this email finds you having a wonderful day. I'd first just like to say that your work is incredible and has been a huge influence on me as a person and amateur writer. I'm sure you hear this a million times a day, but, in all sincerity, thank you for what you've created and given to the gaming community. Now, I'm very curious about your journals from previous projects. I'm sure there is personal stuff in there, and heck, I doubt I'd be able to make sense of half the gibberish on those pages - but I'd pay a pretty penny to see the creative process of one of the most creative/stimulating writers of this generation. Are there any plans to publish said journals (maybe with CIA-like redactions of stuff you deem too personal?)? Perhaps some day down the road? Of course, I can assure you, I'm not the only one who'd be interested in paying for this fascinating behind the scenes doodad. Please do let me know what you think. If you don't mind I'd like to copy/paste this and your answer to the forum in case anyone else has been thinking about contacting you. Thanks! Talk soon,
