      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. +1 for another person that figured it out, granted I've beaten it before and I think I figured it out during that playthrough too (though I don't recall much from that run through). it would be nice for people who are new with dott.
  2. I remember it being quite decent, with some similarities to Sam & Max Hit the Road. I've been doing some reasearch and the game appears to be quite rare indeed, the game seems to have vanished from the internet. I may have a boxed copy of it, I need to look around! I've had a german version of it, but the only way for me to really play it is on one of my old crappy laptops since newer video cards have issues playing the extremely low resolution. even on the crappy laptop, there's some really weird coloring and performance issues. If you ever come across a way to actually play it smoothly, let me know. I tried using a virtual machine but that didn't prove successful (at least for me). A ScummVM engine for the Duckman adventure is being worked on now. It hasn't been added to the main branch though, so it's not playable yet. Hopefully it will be soon. that's incredibly exciting !

  4. awww man, I got super excited too and came here to ask the same haha. the art is from plague soundscapes and they're a very fast pace/aggressive punk/noise band http://criticalmassesmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/plague-soundscapes.jpg - awesome update nonetheless. I've been dying for some new information for the past couple of months. also just got an ipad and rebought the ipad version which is fantastic
  5. Successful or No?

    I thought the game was awesome, but I've been becoming more and more unsatisfied after how long we've been out of the loop regarding part 2. at this point, my hype is starting to dwindle
  6. Have you bought Humble Double Fine Bundle? I didn't. Do I need to in order to play the first half? I bought it on kickstarter at the $100 tier and still haven't gotten an e-mail or pmed a link
  7. same. I'm just out of luck for now I guess
  8. ’The Dream Machine’

    yup! preordered the whole set after playing episode 1. At the time, only episode 1 and 2 were available, but I LOVE claymation and I'm a huge fan of the point and click genre. Unfortunately there haven't been many of these since The Neverhood.
  9. Why Are You A Backer?

    I loved Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert's previous point + click adventures. I also love all of the double fine games that I own. I really wanted to get a physical copy of the game and hold onto it as a collectors item being that I don't own physical copies of day of the tentacle, grim fandango, or full throttle, and I feel like I'm missing out. the phyiscal copy will be somewhat limited, so maybe it will be worth something tho I'm sure I wouldn't wanna part ways with it.
  10. Introduce Yourselves!

    hi all- Steve 23 years old Chicago, IL (USA) I love playing shmups, beat-em-ups, puzzle games, and point + click adventures my favorite adventure game would have to be grim fandango (with full throttle being a close runner up) I'm a benefits administrator/human resource manager
  11. I would also like to see Tim Schafer's take on a futuristic setting, although, I wouldn't mind something in different time periods with different styles - sort of like day of the tentacle.
  12. I agree with post #2. The funding is now over and the project is now moving forward. If they reopen funding for the game, it's essentially a step back from where they are at now. The media has been covering the whole double fine kickstarter process since it basically cut out publishers and proved to be a huge success. Even my local NPR station (Chicago's WBEZ) talked about the doublefine kickstarter. I think it might look bad to the public if double fine were to reopen funding since it's basically saying, we want more funding than the 3.3 million we already collected - even though we said we only needed 400,000 to make the game. People missed out on funding the game, yes...but that doesn't mean that the game won't be available for them to purchase.
