  1. PhD student seeking to talk to you!

    oh go on then...
  2. Good shout on the Mr Huggy one (though you can just brute force easy enough, that dialogue idea you gave would be better) Not sure about the other two. The dancing pattern is unimportant and the other puzzle is right at the end where I liked the lack of hints. Edit: Also yes. The knot puzzle is really growing on me as a beautiful, well-done puzzle.
  3. Music score, doesn't mean anything?

    Ah, this makes a lot of sense. Thanks guys!

    Been working on this. Just wondering how you knew the hand-swinging pattern for your run? Is it just that you used the same save file of a run where you worked out all the patterns separately?
  5. Had a search but I might have missed any discussion on this. The piece of paper on Alex' wall is has a music score. I've just finished the game and didn't use this score for anything. Why is it there? It's been rendered pretty clearly.
  6. Points for whoever can guess what the top bit was for! (The maths bottom bit is because I was supposed to be working)
  7. [SPOILERS] Vella's hint table for the boot puzzle

    And the teeth!

    I got Act1 done in 14 minutes speedrunning. I reckon Act2 can probably be done in 15-20, potentially making a total run of under 30 minutes possible.
  10. [SPOILERS] Vella's hint table for the boot puzzle

    Oh wow I didn't get to see that. Sat down and logic'd it out so only got asked the question twice. Is 7 an available shoe size to answer with? It might be only the available answers are given, but yeah it does seem unhelpful not to have 7 there
  11. Question to Nathan Stapley

    I would love to see that, but it doesn't seem likely
  12. guys i think i'm going to buy a fedora

    It's not the fedora on your head that counts, but the fedora in your heart
  13. Oddly, the more I think about it, the more they were my least favourite characters in the game. Shay in particular was just worn out and depressed. Vella wanted to overthrow evil, but never seemed massively invested in it. That's kind of... the whole of my impression of those characters, in two lines. I feel I could say more about Car'l than either of the main characters. Weird.
  14. This whole post (#15) is brilliant. I clicked longer because... you know... it's a Double Fine game. I'd like an infinitely long game. I already know I'm going to enjoy it so I'd like that to be the last $100 I ever have to spend to have a satisfying life. Of course practicalities come in and ultimately this is down to DF's budget, but the pacing/narrative point made by KestrelPi is fantastic. Something you enjoy going on a lot longer is not necessarily better. You enjoy it, in part, because it ends. You enjoy a piece of music because every chord ends and gives way to the next. You enjoy a film because every scene, even ones you really like, end so the film can continue. I enjoyed Act 1 because each world was paced well, completed itself, and ended.
