      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. Creature Reference Thread

    Níðhöggr (Malice Striker): a dragon from Norse mythology that gnaws at the root of the Yggdrasill (The World Tree, the giant tree that supports the heavens, and connects the world, the heavens, and the underworld through its roots).
  2. Black Lake: Voting Discussion Thread

    I love the art in this game, and the game mechanics seem intriguing (especially the "dream cleaning" part). I really hope this is one of the pitches chosen to become a prototype.
  3. I pledged at the $100 level and received the poster and pin, but not the t-shirt. I e-mailed Fun Gamer and they sent me out the T-shirt pretty promptly. I'm very happy. The poster looks great on my wall, by the way.
  4. I loved Double Fine Happy Action theater, and I've been looking forward to Kinect Party since before it even had a title. But now, I want this game even more. I love in-jokes like this.
  5. Wow. I've played through the game too many times to count, and I never knew you could do that either. I always kept going back to the time toilets like you did. Knowing this will definitely make my playthrough this weekend less tedious.
  6. The Tex Murphy games are FMV too (although since the kickstarter for the new Tex Murphy game isn't up yet, no one knows what the style of the new game will be). I can understand why you dislike FMV games if the only ones you played were on the Sega CD, since the system is notoriously famous for it's bad FMV games. There are actually some really good FMV adventure games out there. Besides the Tex Murphy series, Gabriel Knight 2 was a FMV game, and it was a worthy addition to the series.
  7. I'm definitely in on this too. The fun thing about this is that it comes with Maniac Mansion (playable on Ed's computer [but you have to select it from ScummVM's menu if you want to play it through that]), so any particular playthrough can really be two games in one.
  8. this baby needs way more attention! I love Sherlock Holmes. Thanks for posting about the project. I backed it (I'm really debating about whether to back a higher pledge to be able to write an article for the in-game newspaper. That sounds like it could be fun!)
  9. Why Are You A Backer?

    I originally was interested in the game (I can't pass up a new adventure by Tim Schafer with input by Ron Gilbert!) and the documentary. I upped my pledge because of the old school big box and the digital art book.
  10. Wow. It's really hard to pick just one. But I guess I'd have to say Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures. They nailed the look and feel of the characters, as well as the music and sound. Plus, which is really important for adventure games, the puzzles were really fun too. The final puzzles in each of the four games that made up the whole season were especially memorable. They felt like proper Wallace & Gromit finales and they were fun adventure game "boss fights" to boot.
