      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. PhD student seeking to talk to you!

    Thanks again everyone for your support @Smiles: Great! I'm still trying to talk to as many people as I can until the end of the month (more or less), so that'll definitely help with a final push! @nmalinoski: Sure! A lot of people asked to see what I am working on, so I though I would simply share it over here. But don't hold your breath, as I have got many months of work ahead of me. I think I can realistically aim for a presentable draft by the end of the year, or early next year.

  10. PhD student seeking to talk to you!

    Hi, sorry for taking so long to respond. Are you still looking for people to interview? If so, as someone who just finished his PhD myself, I'd of course be happy if I can help you out with yours! I'm located in Germany so time zones could be easier but I think it's still manageable. Just let me know if you're still interested and I can send you my Skype user name or whatever way of communication you prefer. Good luck with your PhD either way, Christian Hi, Yes, I would be happy to talk to you! I'll send you a PM so we can coordinate. And congratulations on completing your own PhD Best, JF
  11. Hello fellow backers! I am a PhD student in Strategic Management and Organization at the University of Alberta, and I am currently conducting research on crowdfunding. I was hoping some of you would be willing to talk to me? More specifically, I hope to better understand the dynamics between creators (e.g. Double Fine) and their communities (e.g. you guys). What happened here over the last three is certainly one of the most interesting cases of crowdfunding to study. There has been a great deal of variation in terms of how people have responded to Broken Age over time, and I would like to capture that as much as possible. I sincerely hope you will accept to be part of this research. If you do, please let me know here in this thread, or PM me, and we'll figure out a way to get in touch (phone, skype, google hangout, etc.). Thanks a lot!
  12. Go for it! Everyone deserves to know how the sausages are made!
  13. Honestly, if there is a difference, it's most probably because of how the screenshots were stored (e.g. artefacts from jpeg compression).
  14. A backer beta was feasible before Act 1 was released to the broader public. However, now, everyone has access to the game. There is no way on Steam, for instance, to distinguish between backers and broader customers. I don't think it would be fair to expect beta access. On the upside, reaching beta means that the game is almost ready to be released, so we shouldn't have to wait for too long.
