  1. So I'm inside the ship, have talked to Marek, and have grown my head 2 sizes to fool Mom. However, I can't figure out what the name of Shay's favorite stuffed animal is. I've clicked on and made notes of everything clickable in the little museum: Snake stuffed animal, shoe size 7 Sad sack Shay age 8: fireman drawing, hosing down building full of ghosts Second place shoe tying contest First place hugging marathon Safety award, footwear category Shoe fairy red striped cool, green with skulls. Wants red with skulls Best actor: purple boots the musical Medibot exam report. Healthy development. Growth spurt at 6: 3 shoe sizes, 2 inches. Splarg therapy is working Safety award, aquatics category Painting of what looks like a red boot Shays first space boots, age 5 And I believe it has something to do with the snake stuffed animal, but none of these report any clues, and I kept being kicked back here. Its driving me crazy! Any help?
  2. On one hand, it feels like losing a part of the cool kids club. On the other hand, it's been publicly available for money for a while now. Go ahead, release it. It's a damn good look into game development
  3. I'm not smart enough to think of an animation question that is good that hasn't been asked already, so I'll resort to my back up question for stuff like this: If you could be any kind of tree, what tree would you be and why?
  4. So I know all the AF games are PC only, but I have them on my Steam account. On the Mac (and Linux) versions of Steam, games that work on Mac have their own drop down tab under Library (like All Games, Downloaded Games, etc). Recently, Hack 'n' Slash has showed up there. This happens for quite a few PC games, and then goes away after a while, but sometimes it signals that a Mac version is uploaded to Steam in some form, whether it be a Beta or a developer goofing around with multiple system builds. So, why is there a Mac version showing up?
  5. Made a quick 1 minute video. Nothing special, but I would do anything to support this project.
  6. Always looking forward to the IGF awards every year, because its a great show, and great games get their due, yet I never really stay after for the GDC Awards. I decided earlier that this is changing this year, and now I know that Broken Age will debut then so I'm more excited than before! Loving the name, and all this news, and excited to see more!
  7. As quite a lot of us know by know, "Broken Age" is the official title for Reds, announced during the DFA PAX East Panel, and now a website (http://www.brokenagegame.com/) is up, offering limited story info (less than what we know), and providing a cleaner way to pre-order. There are two tiers here: Pre-order and Beta Access for $15 and Pre-Order, Beta Access, and Backer Access (Slacker Backer Package) for $30. Considering we are already calling it a "Pre-order" at this stage, how close is the team to completion? The updates and videos make it seem like only one section of the game is very near content/code/art complete, while the others (especially the boy's story) are very WIP. Also, if we are offering beta pre-orders, how soon will we be able to try out the beta? I for one would really like to try out the Hour of Fun build, if that is at all possible.
  8. I voted for Small Offerings, but it was a hard choice. Though, I think it would be fun if it was just called "Reds"
  9. So an update for Psychonauts for Mac was pushed today on the Humble Bundle pages. There is no patch list, and as far as I know, its not available on Steam (yet). Do we have any official word on what it fixed?
  10. Has anyone tried running any of the prototypes in WINE yet? Or are they still too new?
  11. From a cuber (who has some of the stuff on Tims desk, but not all), the curved white plastic 3x3x3 is from V-Cube http://www.v-cubes.com/index.php
  12. Great update, as usual. Really cool to hear the themes of the characters, while not final. The Cloud area really reminds me of the Village area in Botanicula, and the way you get there is really similar. That crazy Botanicula feel, plus the Bagel art which kinda reminds me of Coraline (for whatever reason) gives me this amazing dream like feel already, even though its nowhere done. Really glad to see that while the art may have hitches, the puzzles and story, and such are really coming together. Marius I think was a great choice, even for a brief period. I first heard of him from his Monkey Island parody, and then he did more parodies for the TellTale entry to that series. For him to work on his favorite series, and his personal heroes is really sweet. Also: I saw a "cloud saves" post-it on the tech wall. This makes me really happy. I'm playing through Deponia right now, and lack of cloud-saves for a game that has 10 puzzles at once in one act is pretty crazy.
