      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. Oliver jokes about royalties... does DF pay leads or teammembers royalties on games? I'm super curious how that works, in broad strokes. Sorry if that's too personal a question.
  2. Great idea. I've enjoyed watching the documentary unfold - it became something really special. It's worth sharing as widely as possible.
  3. DUDE: Your tone makes you a candidate for the 'dramatic Youtube comment readings' genre. Maybe no one else was interested in the expensive process of remastering a game that was only a middling success when it came out. Maybe without this deal we would have nothing, but with this deal we'll eventually have a cross-platform version of Grim Fandango without the stupid tank controls. From where I stand this is a major win for one of my favorite games (and it's so cool that Doublefine is involved, since I assume the IP is all Disney/Lucasarts and they could remaster it without DF or Tim's involvement at all).
  4. Thanks for the link! I was looking for this.
  5. Patanoir

    I really liked PataNoir - kudos!
  6. HERE IS PROGRESS THREAD

    That post was great! Thank you for taking the time.
  7. I had almost an identical crash: during the fight I shot three tentacles, and then when I shot the fourth one it crashed. I loaded the game again, and it immediately crashed again. But then I was able to load it and it worked fine. This is all post-patch, but my save file was started before the crash.
  8. [Suggestion] Pendleton Ward Puzzle

    Oh weird, I did miss Gus entirely on my first playthrough as well. I didn't recognize his voice, so I didn't even think there was missed interaction there.
  9. Hack 'n' Slash is announced!

    I'm not sure if Hack 'n' Slash will teach you to be a better programmer, but you should try Code Combat: http://codecombat.com/ Also, I love the art style of Hack 'n' Slash - really great.
  10. Fun stuff, thanks for showing us this.
  11. I love the stuff from the mechanic - great metaphor. Anyone who's done a major creative project can relate to these moments. My wife and I started a secondhand clothing store, and in a fit of enthusiasm before opening we knocked out the entire entrance of our building to replace it with barnwood beams and old windows. Of course this led to weeks of sleepless nights as we struggled to meet self-imposed deadlines while spending money instead of making money. It all worked out in the end, but it's hard not to remember that feeling.
  12. Such a great idea - I'm down for it.
  13. That is some quality Doublefine history in there
  14. Second Play Through Tip

    I'm going to do that - not because of replay value, but because I'm getting sentimentally attached to the knight and hillbilly. Not the twins, though... they're creepy.
  15. A Time Warp Back To Maniac Mansion.

    What type of controller are you using?
