    Thebe is a far more interesting moon anyway.
  2. Coincidently I just received your postcard for The Farrier today. While I'm here, I figured I'd share an oldie of mine: LASER: Little Arcade System Emulator Releases. It's an emulator for Midway's 8080 games. It started off as a Space invaders emulator called Sinvader, created by Mike Green. I got permission to expand it to learn programming, and ended up supporting many other games using the Midway 8080 chipset. LASER was first released in 2000 for DOS, but a coder named Steven Harris updated it to run on SDL instead of Allegro, and development shifted to Windows. I updated it in 2013 to support newer computers and to update the game detection to use the current MAME rom sets. The source code is released under the GNU Public Licence Version 2.
  3. Triple D'oh! I meant to post in this thread when @Cheeseness nudged me towards it back in March, but I became sidetracked. I meant to release Doug's Moai Adventure under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license back when I started implementing it in Amnesia Adventure. But, again I got sidetracked. As I mentioned above, Doug, Merlin, and Marvin were already released under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license. However, the Doug's Moai Adventure game was not. That's all fixed now, as I updated the license info for Doug's Moai Adventure. So now, it's licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution license. So that should make it play nice with Amnesia Adventure, and anything else anyone wants to use it in.
  4. Awesome, @Kewl Lemon! Thanks for contributing. It's hard to read the text though, any chance you can post what the panels say? Edit: I googled the scenes in question and I was able to determine what the text says. I edited the strip to make it easier to read. Oh, and don't worry about the legalese. I got permission to use the Costume Quest characters for this strip and just wanted to make it clear that they are exempt from the share-alike license used in this comic.
  5. I'm glad about that. It's really the perfect Superman theme, with it's booming, in your face melody, which fits Superman. Just as Elfman's own theme for Batman is perfect for that character as it's dark and foreboding, and gradually gets more intense, like Batman himself. Hopefully the film takes a cue from the Christopher Reeves films too, and give more of a classic Superman, that would better fit this theme music. Honestly, the DC movie Universe could really stand to have a hero like that, with a Superman who's not afraid to be a symbol for good.
  6. Sorry. My post was quite vague as to who bought TMNT. I meant that the price Saban paid for Power Rangers was believed to be about the price Viacom (the parent of Nickelodeon) paid for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I don't think a Kickstarter would be something that Disney would be interested in, either. Plus, since Sony was said to have sought the rights to all of the LucasArts adventures, I really doubt Sony would be too thrilled to dip back into those waters again after the Shenmue III backlash. Honestly, I think Double Fine might theoretically tackle a Monkey Island game if Sony did the grunt work dealing with Disney and they partially funded the game as well. I really can't see Terrible Toybox going that route though. Ron doesn't seem like he's too thrilled with the prospect of publishers these days. If there ever was a hypethetical Double Fine Monkey Island though, I'd imagine Tim would try to get Ron on board, at least with the initial story and design - as Ron did with Telltale for Tales of Monkey Island (and, since we're going full out hypothetical here, Dave Grossman could be a possibility too, even though he's now at Earplay, judging from the fact that he was the co-designer of Duke Grabowski).
  7. Disney won't just give away the rights, and Ron Gilbert won't be able to purchase the Monkey Island IP for a price that Disney would accept. When Disney sold Power Rangers back to Saban, it was believed to be at around the price paid for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - $60 million. And that was only sold because "it didn't fit with the Disney brand". Considering Monkey Island is influenced by Pirates of the Caribbean, that sentiment wouldn't be true for that IP. Plus, the Monkey Island special editions are in the top 10 of the Disney published games in digital sales. So, Disney isn't just sitting on the IP like it was with Power Rangers. So, $60 million would probably be the low end figure - it's likely they'd want to sell it for even more than that. The most we could hope for is that Sony works out a deal with Disney for Terrible Toybox, Double Fine, or another company to make a new Monkey Island game, since the rights to the franchise are likely to stay with Disney.
  8. Board games!

    I enjoy gin rummy, but I've never played 13 cards rummy. I do like trying out variations on games, so I'll give that one a try. On the subject of card games, I've recently been playing Microsoft Solitaire Collection, which has five variations of Solitaire: Klondike, Freecell, Spider, Pyramid, and Tripeaks. I also recently picked up Back to the Future: The Card Game, which is a cross between a card game and a board game. You are given a character card, which all contain a descendent of a character from the films. The object of the game is to flip Linchpins along the timeline to change the past or the future. Linchpins also flip ripplepoints farther down the timeline. After a player has changed history to match the history needed on their character card, in order to preserve their existence, they must prevent the flux capacitor from being invented by Emmett Brown. At that point they are declared the winner of the game. I'm a huge Back to the Future nerd, so I also picked up the Back to the Future board game that Smiths Crisps gave out in the UK in 1985.
  9. I like to keep my songs under 5 minutes in my playlist. I've actually edited songs to trim them down - such as classical songs and Jimi Hendrix.
  10. I do this sometimes. I have a sketch book that I usually use just to make random drawings in, but sometimes I visualize various stories I have written, even in my comic stories - as they are usually just the characters talking. I've since used two of these drawings in a comic. I drew the generational ship from Fluidity In Space, the unfinished story that I posted here earlier. I actually have two concepts - one is a scientifically accurate solar ship inspired by a NASA mockup, and the other is a ship that's more like a ship with sails. The first is the one I picture in my head for the story, but the second one is neat too.
  11. Would anyone mind if I pulled out the Firewatch/Pewdiepie/Steam bombing from here and the Telltale thread and merged it into a new thread? It's super confusing as it is, since the same discussion is happening in both threads.
  12. Grim Fandango wall mural - Now at poster size!

    Adventure-Treff still hosts Laserschwert's posters, but they changed the link. It's here now: http://www.adventure-treff.de/Features/14067-hochaufloesende-adventure-poster I also updated the first post in this thread with working links.
  13. Futurama!

    D'oh. I forgot to link the episode when it aired. That was a pretty fun episode. I hope they do more podcast episodes in the future.
  14. Draw Your Own Creepy Treats!

    With apologies to @Spaff, I had to draw this when it popped into my head.
