      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. A Steed painting by Lee!

    Yup, this was just for fun and I thought I'd share it with you all since it's cool. No other news to report!
  2. A Steed painting by Lee!

    Just wanted to share an awesome Steed painting Lee did the other day!
  3. The future of Fine

    I second this idea because... Scuba lunch breaks!
  4. Is it still in development?

    Hey - heck yeah Spacebase is still in development! I'm not on the team, but JP and co are working hard on the next update and I think you'll hear more about it soon.
  5. Post/Celebrate Your Bloodline Acceptances Here!

    I think it's sweet!
  6. Tie Fighter. . . . . . . . . Just Kidding! Dark Forces. Well the prompt was "Which LucasArts game" ;P I'd love to do Full Throttle!
  7. Tattoo Art

    Awesome ink! How long did that take? I love how colorful it is!
  8. SONY Platforms

    Yup - what KestrelPi said In an ideal world, every title would be on every platform, but no port is free, and every title has it's own special journey!
  9. Grim Fandango Fanart + others

    These are great! Love your style!
  10. Wait, is that a nod to another game?
  11. Coach Oleander Model

    Awesome! I forgot he had a bandoleer - he'd be a great replacement for the heavy in TF2 - kick ass job!
  12. Awesome! I love the LeChuck and Lucasarts logo ones. We should include some DF-related symbols to help a two headed baby out!
  13. Question And Possible Request

    I don't know the origin story of Pizza Box Guy, but it's a fully rigged 3d model that is set up as the default character when we start a new branch of our Buddha engine, which we call a "seed". If you look at the first days of the 3d Amnesia Fortnight games (Black Lake, White Birch, Autonomous, and Steed), you'll probably see PBG running around on day one or filling in for an enemy at the beginning of the project. The cool thing about PBG is that we've done a bunch of placeholder animations for him - so he can walk, run, jump, attack, die, climb, etc, etc, and is a useful tool for prototyping. I don't think we actually brought him fully rigged and animated into any of the unity prototypes - I remember we did load him up in Maya and squash and stretched some of his pizza boxes to play with different character proportions. Ah - here it is! Geoff used PBG to test proportions and early attack animations for Massive Chalice, before he was even in the game. So, Pizza Box Guy has proved useful for a bunch of things! The method for creating a temp character like this is similar to that of any other character, you just don't need well-defined geometry and an advanced rig that has things like facial muscles. Maybe one of our character artists can hop on here and give more details.
  14. HELP!! Haven't received my backer gifts

    You should email support@doublefine.com and provide the e-mail address you've signed up to the forum with along with your Kickstarter e-mail address. If those email addresses are the same, you should get the forum badge automatically, but if they are different, a little wizardry may be involved. Also - there are no backer-exclusive forums for MASSIVE CHALICE, so you aren't missing access there.
