  1. I'm all for releasing it. One of the main things that people seem to miss is that Double Fine didn't pitch Broken Age on kickstarter. They think that DF PROMISED (everything a game dev announced is a super special promise that can't be broken. no wonder more isn't said earlier about games) Broken Age would be done in X amount of time and blah blah blah. They don't realize how this spun up based on the money taken in and that estimates from the original pitch were based around a game that didn't receive 10x the funding goal. They should see this thing from the start.
  2. You may find Hack 'n' Slash interesting then. It doesn't really belong to the 'hack and slash' genre and is much more of a puzzle/programming oriented game. Too bad you're an admin and have to answer diplomatically instead of pointing out that guy with the big brain is incapable of even looking into what sort of game he's talking about or thinks he's outgrown childish things yet refers to things he doesn't like as retarded. Please don't insult people. Keep in mind the forum's Guide to Decency and treat everyone with respect. Thanks.On that note, 'retarded' is a pretty ugly word to be using as an insult in this context in the first place. I don't think louiedog's response to that was out of line. Thanks. I didn't mean to insult the guy, just point out his insulting behavior in looking down on that game and by extension the people who enjoy the genre and in his use of the word as an insult. I'm surprised a moderator got on me for that but didn't seem to have any problem with his use of that word. At least I would hope a moderator would understand why that's a problem.

  4. I think it's interesting that you used Full Throttle as an example. Having just played it for the first time a couple of years ago after growing up with the other LucasArts Adventure games as a younger man I felt that way about it. It's not that I was disappointed, but the game was a shorter and the puzzles were a lot easier than I remembered. Maybe it's you that's different.
  5. Hard in point and click adventure games all too often means hiding an item where it's difficult to find or asking the player to run through every permutation of interactive objects until they stumble on a nonsensical solution. I never liked that aspect and didn't find the difficulty in this game worked against my enjoyment of it at all.
  6. I backed at the $15 tier (never pay more than 20 bucks for a computer game) and my Humble page reflects this. The soundtrack isn't listed on the KS page until the $30 tier. However, my Steam key gave me the soundtrack DLC. Is that supposed to happen?
  7. I opened the Kickstarter page when it was at $0 and immediately backed and neither have I. I think they're still going out.
  8. You can register without any purchase right from the main page. A direct link would be https://www.humblebundle.com/signup , you probably should use the same email as with Double Fine. Placeholder they were talking about is gone now, should be back tomorrow with real link to download DFA. I just reclaimed my page. They must have flushed all of the old ones because my new page has a different Humble key.
  9. If anyone looking for this sort of support has a laptop in addition to the machine hooked up to the TV you could use cursor sharing software like Synergy (http://synergy-foss.org/) or Mouse Without Borders (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35460) to control the game from the couch with the laptop's touchpad.
  10. Amazon has a reward system for their Android Appstore. When you purchase some apps they come with free coins. Coins are an alternative currency for buying apps from their store. The below games all provide 20 coins and, as of this posting, cost nothing. So simply adding 5 of these apps to your account will give you 100 coins, or 460 if you get all of them. Dropchord costs 99. You get the game, Double Fine gets paid, and Amazon's promo gets people in their ecosystem. Everyone wins.

  11. Hopefully Nordic is better to deal with than THQ. Apparently Double Fine never saw a dime from the copies that were given away on PS+. link to pdf Page 3 lays it out, but read on if you're interested in things like the license agreement.
  12. This week of videos and the trailer were really good. They've officially crossed me over from, "these videos are great and there's going to be a fun game at the end," to, "these videos are great and I need this game now and cannot wait any longer."
  13. Tim announced it in this thread days ago. It got buried by continued suggestions. It probably should have received a new thread or at least an update in the first post.
  14. Yep. And if anyone else wants to make that a wallpaper: http://www. brokenagegame.com/images/keyart.jpg A space was added after www. to keep it from embedding.
  15. I think you're in the forum for the wrong Kickstarted adventure game. Al Lowe probably has a website for that somewhere else.
  16. Hmmm. Any chance that could be changed to Separate Ways (Worlds Apart) instead? I can't wait for the beta to start and go on this Journey.
  17. After the trademark issues surrounding Trenched/Iron Brigade I think this one is out just because there's a first person puzzle game (generally lumped together with adventure) that was released late last year titled Kairo. I'd also like to say that "None of the Above" is growing on me for a game about two people unwilling to accept their fate who decide to do something about it.
  18. I'd love a sequel, but not at the expense of the smaller titles that we've been getting fairly regularly for the past few years. I'd rather have 1-2 Double Fine games every year than one game every 3-4 years.
  19. They should be live in about 15 minutes. Don't be surprised if the show is a little late.
  20. There are few things that I like more than when Brad Muir visits Giant Bomb. He's the most enthusiastic man in video games and always brings so much fun energy to what are already great shows put on by the site. Tim will be joining them? There's no way I can miss it tonight.
  21. This is so hard! I'm one of 30,000. How do you make these decisions in a much more definitive manner? Can't you just make 23 games?
  22. Any chance of loot/upgrades? Faster/stronger carts, more powerful clubs, a gopher powerup to sabotage competitors, persistent snazzy attire, etc?
  23. I have not played that Doritos game! I'm off to youtube! ! That Doritos game was surprisingly pretty fun for a free advergame. 200 gs in 15 minutes didn't hurt, but I actually played with my roommate beyond that. Too bad it was delisted, although I hear that it's like a trial in that it doesn't attach to your account, so people who have it can easily share it with friends. Anyway, the real issue is that this game isn't high enough in the rankings. Did you people see the dinosaur hat? What else do you need?
  24. "Inspired by... 'The Conversation'" was enough to make me lean forward in my chair and go "ooooooooooh." This sounds really cool.
