  1. 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. Just wanted to share an awesome Steed painting Lee did the other day!
  3. I second this idea because... Scuba lunch breaks!
  4. 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. Tie Fighter. . . . . . . . . Just Kidding! Dark Forces. Well the prompt was "Which LucasArts game" ;P I'd love to do Full Throttle!

    Awesome ink! How long did that take? I love how colorful it is!
  7. 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!
  8. These are great! Love your style!
  9. Awesome! I forgot he had a bandoleer - he'd be a great replacement for the heavy in TF2 - kick ass job!
  10. Awesome! I love the LeChuck and Lucasarts logo ones. We should include some DF-related symbols to help a two headed baby out!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
