  1. It's a lovely game. My daughter bugs me every day to play some "boy and the wolf".
  2. How old is your daughter? Mine is four and she's begging me to play "the cartoon with the boy". And my wife loves the gorgeous graphics.
  3. My daughter has a crush on Shay - she's four years old. I have a crush on the game - I'm considerably older.
  4. Thank you Tim for being my adult childhood hero and releasing another adventure game I can enjoy together with my own kids.
  5. Refrain? You don't happen to be Swedish? In English it's called chorus.
  6. Visible graphical glitches in Vella trailer

    Is this really an important "bug"? If that is the case the game will be fantastic.
  7. SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS! :-D Thank you so much for all the hard work.
  8. I'm so excited about the game I don't know what to do with myself anymore! Can't believe it'll be released tomorrow, I'm definitely gonna go all-in and play it until I've finished it completely. Hopefully it's big enough to not be over in a few hours.
  9. Another truly fantastic episode. I'm so excited about that music and the voice acting.
  10. I had to rewatch the episode just to remind myself how close it is until the first episode is released.
  11. Probably because you've been making such a deal out of it for the past few pages. Yes it is, you don't seem to understand the definition of "racist".
  12. Personally I'd prefer if you went back to not saying anything at all. You're the only one raising the music as a concern because it might be "racist". I really can't see that connection at all and why you even had that thought and figured it was appropriate to argue for it is just a mystery to me and probably several other people in this thread.
  13. Not at all. But there's a significant difference between blind cheerfulness and misinformed ranting. God is dead, but that's a subject matter for another day. I didn't mind the puzzles in any of the two Monkey games. In fact, I enjoyed most LucasArts's games and even Sierra. But I do remember getting very stuck at certain puzzles; one of them was the monkey wrench in Monkey 2 and the other was in Fate of Atlantis when you get to the ruins and are supposed to turn statues or whatever it was. The third time I remember being critically stuck was in Police Quest III. Turns out that was a game-breaking bug so I usually don't count that.
  14. Well, you seem to conveniently forget the game grew exponentially from the initial idea and they decided to go with it thus straining the budget. They're not releasing half the initial game but half of the new extended game. They could've just said "screw it, let's cut out everything, make it small as we originally planned and ship it" but that wouldn't be fun for anyone, challenging for them or as interesting to us backers. Your post? I actually read it, compared to what you seem to do.
  15. I was stuck on Monkey 2 for aaaages. The "monkey wrench" puzzle was tricky.
