  1. No, he left before the layoffs. Awww... Where'd he go?
  2. I'm so sorry to hear about the layoffs... Thoughts and prayers to all of you. Is Brandon still at DF?

  4. This is the best news all year for video games. Gotta love Sony and Disney for making this happen. Tim - any ownership at all over the IP going forward?
  5. There's a GOLD MINE of ideas here. Hands down, my favorite is First Person Bus Ride!!! HAHAHA! GOOOOO CQ2!
  6. I've been watching the AF episodes and I've heard/seen a couple dozen references to bananas, often followed by laughter. Can you fill us in on the joke, or is it too esoteric to understand?
  7. Guys - I've gotta say.... this is AMAZING!!! You all are doing great work here!
  8. Guys - I've gotta say.... this is AMAZING!!! You all are doing great work here!
  9. Hey folks - I was watching the Day 4 episode and I had an idea about putting the focus on the horse when a rider is present. The idea is simple... when the horse begins to run, the rider hangs onto its neck for dear life while his legs kick behind in the air. Essentially, the rider becomes a human cape for the horse. This way, the horse's head is still in view and the visual cues are showing you who is in control. I know this is screaming "scope creep" but I thought I'd throw it out there!
  10. This just looks SICK! I love the stylized look! That's pretty damn good for one day, guys... Keep up the good work
  11. Awesome news!!!! Thanks guys!
  12. I saw a comment from JP here that said he's trying to get the next alpha build out before then. I don't know if that would be 3c or 4, but hopefully it will be stable enough for us before AF starts!
  13. The topic says it all... it'd be nice to have a non-keyboard way to flip objects.
  14. The entire company will be on hiatus from their current projects during amnesia fortnight..,
  15. Hey guys - just wondering when the hiatus actually takes place for spacebace development???
  16. New to the game, guys - how do you claim? I keep seeing that word a lot... Anything to do with those red flags? Edit: Disregard... I'm an idiot I clicked the flags and then claimed them...
  17. Awesome episode folks! Question: will you guys be sharing sales figures? I'm dying to know if you guys are going to be financially secure going forward...
  18. For what it's worth, go to giant bomb.com and check out the hour long interview they do with Tim. During the interview he specifically states that he's tweaking Act II to be much harder due to feedback from the backers.
  19. My friend, this is an argument in semantics... the definition of pledge is a promise to donate money. I don't hate you. I am merely trying to get you to take a step back and look at how you are approaching the situation, that's all.
  20. Let's be honest with ourselves here... a troll is someone who posts something like this for the purpose of eliciting an emotional response from others. Now, the OP may have posted under the guise of an "honest question", but in what reality does donating money to someone and then demanding it back amount to any form of reasonableness? And again, I don't accept the premise that you were promised something and then given something else. Apparently, some folks have different expectations from the rest of us, because this blew my expectations out of the water - and that's where the respect part comes in. Yes, we were told we'd get a game that was a point and click adventure game in the same as the classics, but we were also told they would iterate on it a bit to modernize it. What do you think the first videos between Ron and Tim were all about? They spent the entire time discussing what worked and what didn't work about the old adventure games... what to bring into the present and what to leave behind. All I'm saying is that you're writing off an amazing work of art because it's not what you were expecting. And it's an egregious offense to demand a donated refund for something you supported of your own volition for the same reason. The thing is, the OP has reached his objective - congratulations: people are pissed at you. Can you not consider our position, though, and at least rethink your tact?
  21. Ok, let's say for the sake of argument that you are being completely reasonable here. How did they not deliver on what was promised? If you watch the pitch video, Tim says (and I quote) "Either the game will be great, or it will be a spectacular failure caught on camera for everyone to see." That was the promise and nothing else. They never said this would be a wonderful game (though I think it is) and no one made you spend your hard-earned money, you elected to do that based on who knows what. At the end of the day, we got a gorgeous game that's fun and - what's more - it's only halfway done! What were you expecting?
  22. I have a thread about this, but I believe the game is actually better because we have to wait for Act II. I won't go into it, but Act I does a fantastic job of building the story to a fantastic ending that won't have as much bite if you wait for the second Act. My $0.02 Play now!!!
