      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.

    Raised in Elizabeth, New Jersey, moved to Philadelphia to attend Grad School, fell in love, stayed in Philly, got engaged. If I wasn't librarian-ing I'd probably be writing film criticism or trying to write a comic, but I'm not all that great at any of those.
  1. GROUND MOUTH

    I couldn't find him during the day but after potatoes it's kind of obvious where he is.
  2. Mnemonic Feedback

    You guys all nailed the combination of adventure game mechanics but with the dream like logic and making memory connections instead of just "put this item here." I actually felt like I was moving through someone's subconscious. The lighting was amazing in particular. I'd love to see a longer story done in this way with more puzzles to play around in (I actually thought Brad's jokey idea of a clock on a wall that you put your arm next to which turns it into a watch was super cool). I'm a sucker for that dreamy ambiance.
  3. Suggestion and Feedback Thread

    Off to a really great start. The amount of detail and fullness/replayability to the game after 2 weeks is mind boggling. The art is perfect and I absolutely LOVE the writing and mechanics. I love the idea of getting to really dive into more options and events, spending more time in each era. Great job to the whole team, was so much fun to watch this develop.
  4. Steed Official Feedback Thread

    Gorgeous. Very fun to brawl and I think you got the mechanics of "you are the Horse" down perfect. A lot of fun to just explore the world and find easter eggs. I like the idea of having some open world aspects to a full version of this game. Just being a horse, running around, helping other heroes on their quests, before diving back into the main arc. Similar to how I played Elder Scrolls IV.
  5. LPBB Feedback

    Well I finished it and love it! It is totally bonkers and unique. It's buggy at times sure but the idea of something like this but longer and with a full story like this for every buddy is...well I would freak out. This was a great year for AF. Literally every game is one I hope gets full developed. I laughed for about 10 minutes straight at the final moments.
  6. GROUND MOUTH

    Oh god why did I look at this right before bed lol.
  7. LPBB Feedback

    Trying to not reveal spoilers and not get spoiled on anything. I get into the house, Big Leg and I chat, then stuff starts happening. I don't know what to do at this point! I just get stabbed each time. I've tried a bunch of stuff but it goes *SPOILERS* they are yelling, Big Leg tells met to leave, I can't do anything, house explodes, stabbed. Is this the end? It's hilarious if so but I thought there was a bit more from hearing the Double Finers play it.
  8. Black Screen Issue

    Got it! Just used the verify Game Cache feature within Steam, apparently some aspects weren't valid (despite deleting and reinstalling it a few times) and now it runs like a charm! Thanks for your help!
  9. The Dreaded Black Screen

    Ah! Fixed it. Deleting and reinstalling didn't work but "Verifying the local game cache" under properties did discover some missing files that Steam then redownloaded! Now it works great.
  10. Black Screen Issue

    Update: Just went through the long process of updating the video drivers, didn't help.
  11. The Dreaded Black Screen

    Yeah I'm debating just getting it from Xbox but I'm gonna try a few more things before buying it twice haha. Then again I'd just be supporting Double Fine so I don't mind that.
  12. Black Screen Issue

    Running Windows 8 (unfortunately), the video card is an Nvidia Geforce 635M. I am pretty sure I have up to date video drivers but I will double check right now.
  13. Black Screen Issue

    Hello All, Earlier today I purchased Stacking on Steam. I came across the issue where it opens up to a black screen. No cursor, no sound, no nothing. I let it sit for quite awhile to see if it would eventually start it up but it became very clear that it would not. I did everything I could think of (ran the installs of the programs that steam installs manually, made sure it was opening with my Nvida card and not "integrated intel graphics") but am stumped. I'm not super techy so some of the other solutions I have seen were not things I knew how to implement. If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it. This is the first time with this year old or so computer that I've had an issue with a game. They've all run smooth, which has made me really happy because I almost always had some sort of problem going on with all my games. I posted basically the same post over at the Iron Brigade forums because I am having the same problem with both games.
  14. The Dreaded Black Screen

    Hello All, Earlier today I decided to finally buy Iron Brigade and give it a shot. I was pretty excited to start it up. I came across the issue where it opens up to a black screen. No cursor, no sound, no nothing. I let it sit for quite awhile to see if it would eventually start it up but it became very clear that it would not. I did everything I could think of (ran the installs of the programs that steam installs manually, made sure it was opening with my Nvida card and not "integrated intel graphics") but am stumped.

    That is the greatest high five ever! I'm actually a big fan of Kanye myself, I don't know about voice of our generation (a term I've always found silly) but I do think he's brilliant.
