  1. Don't worry about it. I've backed the campaign, so if a Linux demo is announced in an update, I'll check it out as soon as I can.
  2. I started in a new job on Tuesday. Feels a bit weird going straight from a job where I constantly had too much to do to a new one where I haven't really done anything yet, but get paid more. I didn't switch jobs for the money though, but because I needed a change of environment and because there's been so much outsourcing in IT here the past few years that I felt I needed it to stay competitive. The job market has also been pretty tough in general because there's fewer jobs in offshore now, which has lead to ripple effects through both high and lower education professions. I've seen lots of very talented people struggle to find jobs, so just being good isn't good enough. It takes a good chunk of luck too. And I feel lucky to have gotten this opportunity, even though it's probably not my dream job. I'm surrounded by lots of talented people though, and I'm hopefully in a place to get more interesting job opportunities now. One good thing in particular happened in my old job though. The company I worked for was bought by a person who shares my passions for FOSS (free and open-source software) and GNU/Linux. Unfortunately it happened after I'd already had more than enough of the job and management there, and several of the people I need a break from still work there. He has told me that he understands that leaving was the right thing for me to do now though, and that he hopes that he can convince me to come work for him again in the future. So I hope that's something that will sort itself out in maybe a few years. I've also gotten to know several of the people who work for him, and they're very skillful people who I know I'd enjoy working with. For the time being though, I'm happy to be where I am, and I'm hopeful that I'll get some interesting challenges to tackle in the near future.
  3. Are you thinking of this? It starts out with discussion abuot Grim Fandango and then continues with Broken Age after that tweet. EDIT: You're right, KestrelPi storified some of that: https://storify.com/KestrelPi/tim-schafer-responds
  4. I've finally gotten around to playing Stephen's Sausage Roll, and I'm loving it. It's sort of a sokoban, where instead of pushing crates around you roll sausages onto grills, but you have to make sure you only grill each square once, or you have to rewind or restart. It sounds simple but it gets very difficult fast, and you discover new gameplay mechanics for every world, such as moving sausage stacks, hooking+unhooking sausages with your fork, walk-rolling sausages, turning sausages on your head, unhooking your fork, etc. Initially each level is completely separate and navigated between on an overworld where you solve each puzzle in the order you choose, and once you're done, you unlock a sausage which can be pushed in place to open up the path to the next world. When you get closer to the end of the game though, there's puzzling to be done in the overworld too, and the game gets very tricky, so it's a true delight for fans of difficult puzzlers like Snakebird and DROD.
  5. Have you checked out Rakuen? It's made by Laura Shigihara, who is probably most known for contributing to the score of To The Moon, and it's somewhat similar, but quite a bit longer and it has several puzzles. It's unfortunately only available on Steam though.
  6. That looks very interesting, WavingPeople, and I'm glad to see a Linux version is planned.
  7. Linux release?

    Thanks so much for the Linux version, Cheeseness and Double Fine! Those testers seem like nice (and probably handsome) people too.
  8. my Day of the Tentacle fanart

    Yeah, they look amazing. I would have taken them for photos of real figurines. Thanks for sharing.
  9. Comprehensive List of Licensed Merchandise

    I've never heard of it before, but I found an image of it on Pinterest of all places:
  10. I'm waiting for it to drop below €0,8
  11. A Good Snowman Is Hard to Build is a lovely game. I already have way too many games, like everyone else on Steam, but I'll probably end up buying some games I've been on the fence about... And then not play them anyway, as usual.
  12. Comprehensive List of Licensed Merchandise

    You should be able to edit your own posts, I think. Is there not an "Edit" link at the bottom of your post?
  13. Manny's Office

    Since juyi hasn't visited the forums in well over a year and only ever made that one post, I've taken the liberty of updating their post to include the image, which luckily had been saved by Wayback Machine.
  14. Comprehensive List of Licensed Merchandise

    I'm not aware of anything like that, other than the merchandise available from the Action Shop on this site. If you know of other licenced merchandise, I'd love to see a list of that.
