  1. Amazing! I thought I could remember my dreams vividly but that's nuts. I can never remember conversations and things.

    Did satan look like zappa? or did satans dick look like zappa?

    I've also been trying to keep a dream diary recently but find it really hard to write. If i wake up in the middle of the night I find it hard to write properly and not completely wake up and be unable to get back to sleep, or just be able to write intelligibly in that weird only half awake state.

    My favourite recent entry just says:

    ? Ron Howard.

    No idea what that meant. Dreams are the best.

  2. So good!

    Just too many little things that all culminate in just a funny, sweet and beautiful game.

    Some things I loved:

    Borges pseudonyms on the wanted poster

    Eating oranges. I actually had to go and play it again as I didn't notice it the first time.

    Pushing ducks

    Picking up all the weapons and ammo in the hideout

    Baboo horse bag!

    The lorum ipsum in the poster for the band. I forget what band was called but it made me chuckle also.

    I love being thrown in to the museum from the car crash.

    The character introductions. Super stylish!

    The numbers station on the hideout radio. I'd love to know if this is real numbers station audio?

    Also, the music, great job Chris! Will the soundtrack be available at all?

  3. Loved the talk about kids being just poking at games and being enthralled even though they have no idea what the hell may be going on.

    It reminded me of one of my first gaming experiences when I was about 7 or 8, Midwinter on the PC. To this day I have had no idea what that game was about or what you were supposed to actually do. I have just read the wikipedia article and had my mind blown, I'd never have guessed that was what the game was about. I'd like to see a remake as it sounds awesome!


    Also, I can still remember most of the keys from X-Wing + Tie Fighter :|

  4. Very cool, Empika! Did you take inspiration from the official Battle of Endor set?

    Thank. And yes, very much took inspiration from the official set. Could only find a few good pics of it so made most of it up :)

  5. Don't forget the Cuusoo site, tons of amazing stuff on there


    This defender blows my mind! http://lego.cuusoo.c...deas/view/16894 the guy has also done a mini which is incredible too.

    Lego is pretty much the best thing. I spent about 7 hours last weekend designing a case for my newly arrived raspberry pi computer (www.raspberrypi.org) using the lego digital designer, it is my best effort at the endor bunker. ordered all the parts off of lego pick a brick and brick link, just wiating for the pick a brick order to come through now :D pic attached.


  6. I'll be there on my lonesome tomorrow as I think most people I know have saturday tickets.

    Up for meeting a fellow thumb though, should be getting down there for about 1 or 2 ish.

    Also, if you are there on saturday, come and laugh at me trying to make a game-in-an-hour at 4pm on some kind of stage somewhere.

  7. I watched it and enjoyed it. I would dispute that it's a documentary though, rather it's a compilation of interviews. Worth a watch though. Particularly as Jinro is a bad ass!

    indeed, I posted this after only watching 20 mins or so. It is certainly more a profile of each of the players. I have learnt absolutely nothing about the Star Craft scene and what the actual game is or what it takes to be a pro player. Kinda disappointing but interesting nonetheless.

  8. Looks pretty incredible to the mere layman... although that first shot of the demon man still looks plasticy, a carryover from ue3?

    Still, the lighting effects etc are pretty outstanding and I can appreciate the benefit of inline code compilation etc, even I thought the jumping bit was pretty damn neat!

  9. Hallo

    I thought i should post in here as i'm a long time lurker and long term reader of the podcast.

    You may know me from organising the Brighton, UK arm of the whatwouldmolydeux game jam and posting about my game news site (gdne.ws) on the forums before actually posting in this thread or anything else. Hi!

    Alternatively you have never heard of me, in that case, also Hi!
