      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.

It's pretty amazing what you can put together in 1 day if you have the right tools. And a bunch of really talented people.

End of Day 2 11/29:

New stuff - moving projected tree shadows, ambient vfx, npc crows, mouse support with in-world cursor and camera movement, clue system setup (that second pizza box man is a clue stand-in with a scent trail coming off him)

That looks mega cool, Levi. Were you at the office? If so, be honest, how many other people were there working? If my job were making crazy sick computer games, I'd be there on weekends too!

Attn. Tim Schaefer: The shortlist for December's Employee of the Month is now available. ...are the 2 Player guys eligible?

I'm really excited now to tune in tomorrow. I'm sure a bunch of progress has been made over the weekend. By viewers too, actually, now that we don't have a livestream distracting us all day.

Part of me thinks of the stress of working too many weekends, but the thrill of coming into a quiet office knowing that there will be no meetings or other non-nose-to-the-grindstone tasks is worth it.

Definitely looking forward to the progress updates during tomorrow's videos/meetings.

Day 4! Monday 12/2

Girl is in! Not textured though. You can also see some new lighting and test vfx. On other fronts, you can play accordion sounds now, the world is coming along nicely, and we have some really cool dynamic bramble tech cooking.

It's really impressive on how much these screen shots are progressing everyday. If the team is able to keep this up for another week and a half I can't imagine what the prototype will look like. I'm looking forward to busting out my accordion in the forest.

Oh maaaan. I am so pumped to track down dream animals and animal dreams and avoid scary creatures in the awesomest woods. Black Lake's bringin' the A game. If I were another AF prototype, I'd wanna hang out with Black Lake.
