      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. Linux Support/Port/Export?

    Their latest couple of games (Headlander and RAD) were not released for Linux, and they were acquired by Microsoft in June, so I wouldn't count on it. They're still committed to releasing Psychonauts 2 for Linux though, but apart from that, I don't think we'll see another Linux release from Double Fine.
  2. Can't select/cancel items iOS

    Sorry to hear that you're having issues. Have you tried emailing support@doublefine.com?
  3. For score based games, Spelunky might be a good pick. You can find lists of best runs at https://mossranking.com/. Speed running is also a good way to measure your skills up against other top players in a specific game, and you can find lists with different sort criteria for different platforms at https://www.speedrun.com/games. Beating records for one of the more popular games definitely won't be easy though, and will likely require months of practice.
  4. This might be an ambitious undertaking, but I thought it would be nice to try to collect game deals in a thread like this. I know things like this often show up in egr, but it's easy to miss stuff there. Obviously there's a ton of different sites offering deals all the time, and it's easy to miss a killer deal on a game you're interested in. I'm not sure how to best do this, so I'll probably stumble my way through the first couple of posts until I find my footing. Any feedback would be appreciated. Steam Daily Deal: 80% off Trine 2: Complete Story (Windows/Mac/Linux): 3,39€ / $3.99 IndieGameStand.com: Pay what you want for Snorms (Windows/Mac/Linux/Android), (DRM-free/Desura) -Beat the average: Map pack, Snorms OST Shit, I don't really have time to do this right now, but I'll come back later and tidy things up a bit. There's also the current Humble Bundle and the Archlight Bundle at least. I'm going to try to find a good template for displaying this stuff in a tidy fashion.
  5. Do you think we'll ever get a sequel?

    I also really enjoyed The Cave. I don't think it's very likely that it will get a sequel though, since Ron Gilbert is off doing other things now.
  6. Nice. I backed it on Kickstarter and look forward to playing it.
  7. The game is dead ?

    @Xenogears666 You're welcome to your opinion about the game, but please refrain from slamming the developers who put a lot of hard work into the game by calling them lazy. I'm sure you wouldn't appreciate someone else calling you lazy for doing work that wasn't to their taste or standards, whatever it is you do for a living. Also keep in mind, that game development is an extremely competitive business, and if Double Fine wasn't exceptionally talented at doing what they do, they would have gone out of business long before the almost two decades they've been able to keep doing what they do.
  8. Grim Fandango Collection

    That's a nice collection. I only have a boxed copy of the game that I bought on eBay many years ago. Where did you find the items in your collection?
  9. I remember playing and enjoying the two first games. I hope they make Linux a stretch goal, now that they've reached the base goal.
  10. hey guys post more im bored

    I'm switching jobs again in January. I've enjoyed my current job and the project I've been contracted to work on, but for various reasons, this felt like a good time to seek new challenges.
  11. Maybe they can be convinced to post them on GitLab or something? Seems like an infinitely better home for creative works than Facebook.
  12. Maybe TTG finally realized how much $80 is and decided to un-close the threads, or maybe it happened during the forum software migration.
  13. Hi, that_guy. I vaguely remember your name from when I joined DFAF at the beginning of the DFA Kickstarter (Broken Age). I'm glad you have fond memories of this place, and I don't think you should worry about your past self. Most of us did or said things in our teens that we are not so proud of today. The IRC channel you used to connect to with Mibbit was probably #DFAF at Foonetic.net, which still exists, but is much less active today. Most of the people you mentioned are still active on the previously unofficial, now official, Discord server, which is mentioned in this thread: I hope to see you there as well.
  14. It's the first hit for "site:telltalegames.com 80 how much".
  15. VR

    No, it will be a traditional 3D platformer like the original Psychonauts. I don't think VR support has been confirmed, but even if it will have it, it will be optional.
  16. There probably won't be a forum with threads to necro once Telltale shuts down their servers and/or stops paying for hosting though. That's a little piece of history that will be lost forever.
  17. Even though I didn't care much for their games from BttF onwards, I have fond memories of their earlier games, and it's sad to see them go under, leaving more than 200 people without a job.
  18. Knights and Bikes book!

    Yes, that's a good point, but I think that in this case, that might not be relevant to Double Fine, since they're only the publisher of the game, while the book is Foam Sword's own project.
  19. Knights and Bikes book!

    It was announced in a Kickstarter update: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/foamsword/knights-and-bikes/posts/2151684
  20. Costume Quest - Cartoon

    I think that one year to plan, design and develop a full game alongside Psychonauts 2 probably isn't plenty of time, unless they're already working on it. Some kind of tie-in would be very cool though, even if it was just something small and purely cosmetic.
  21. BL2

    There was never a Kickstarter campaign for Brütal Legend. Double Fine's only crowdfunding campaigns to this date are Double Fine Adventure (Broken Age), Massive Chalice and Psychonauts 2. During a panel discussion at E3 in 2017, however, Tim Schafer said that a sequel will be made when the time is right, when asked about Brütal Legend 2. Maybe that's what you're thinking of?
  22. Costume quest phone update?

    I don't have any inside knowledge, but I think that it's probably not likely to happen so long after the initial release. It would likely be a big effort to adapt to the smaller screens and different input, it would require new rounds of QA and certifications, and there would be less hype, which means it might not be profitable.
  23. You can use this page to get a password recovery link sent to the email you used to register your account: https://forums.doublefine.com/lostpassword/ Note that you will probably need to log in again on devices where you are currently logged in. EDIT: I think I misread your question: Do you mean the main page with the action blog? I don't know if that's possible, actually. It still uses the old content and forum software, as far as I know, and since comments on the blog were disabled due to spam, I think its only functionality would be to like blog posts. The shop is handled through Fangamer, the support uses an email form and the forums are on new and modern software, so I don't know if there's much use in logging in there anymore.
  24. hey guys post more im bored

    Belated happy birthday, Chyron! I hope you had a nice day.
  25. Costume quest phone update?

    I don't think that's available for iOS. Is it?
