  1. Letterboxd

    I got back into using letterboxd a while ago, and I now review every film I watch. I'm .
  2. Half-Life 3

    Do it!
  3. Fresh Indie Game Compendium Extraordinaire

    @AlexGamechuck this is supposed to be a reference list of released indie games with brief entries. Might be better to move those two posts into their own thread if you want to keep us updated on your (lovely looking) game. Example entry: Lair Of The Clockwork God By: Size Five Games Available: £15.49 on Steam or GOG Synopsis: adventure game/platformer mash-up, written by and starring me and a friend. Comes with a free visual novel prequel.
  4. I gave up on Picard. Very slow, clunky writing, dull story. I got a few minutes into episode 5 when another character pretty much looked into camera and said "this is my backstory and emotional arc", and then I was reminded of the prospect of a 'casino planet' episode and that was it for me. Also, re. this Discovery discussion I gave up on Discovery too, but seems like
  5. LOTCG, Justin McElroy's favourite smaller game of 2020 so far, is now available for Mac and Linux, and on GOG too! (Launch sale 10% off at GOG right now.) Okay, I'll shut up about it again until we get on another store or platform!
  6. Yeah, when we were in the hot-tub we were on a dialogue-writing retreat, a lot of the game was built already. We've been working on this for years!
  7. [Full Release] Farewell, Video Games

    Amazing behind the scenes trivia, thank you!
  8. Thanks! A few more reviews came in: 100% - City AM, 90% - Buried Treasure, 80% - Edge, 80% - Slant, Bestest Bests – RockPaperShotgun And we got to over 100 user reviews, all but one of them positive.
  9. Released! “A brilliant, joyous, clever and generous experience.” 4.5/5 – ThumbSticks “This is a gag delivery device with a seriously good hit rate” 83% – PC Gamer “Great mash-up of indie platforming and classic adventuring.” 8/10 – TheSixthAxis
  10. Announcing another latest Dan And Ben game: Devil's Kiss. It's $2 or bundled FREE with Lair Of The Clockwork God, it's a visual novel prequel about Dan and Ben meeting in high school, and it's great fun. Please feel free to wishlist (wishlisting Lair Of The Clockwork God is more important, but you can do both)!
  11. Lego Movies

    Got round to seeing Part 2. I didn't think much of it until the last section where the metaphors and twists come out in full force and it reveals itself as an anti-MRA, anti-toxic-masculinity, pro-genderqueer movie, and it all works really well. Also, the song over the credits is Beck in a more modern Midnite Vultures mode with The Lonely Island rapping about credits, and it's fantastic.
  12. WIZARD JAM X - Welcome Thread

    Part 2: Nick is planning to do another stream same time next week where he catches up on some unplayed Jam games of the past and revisits old favourites. So, any requests, let him know!
  13. WIZARD JAM X - Welcome Thread

    In case anyone missed it, Nick streamed some of the games last week: He'll be streaming more (perhaps all the rest?) in about 5 hours from now!
  14. [Release] TresPunker

    This looks and sounds great, and it definitely captures the jank of Trespasser! I managed to kill a few dinos and then succumbed to the jank. Is this original VO or did you rip it from the original game?
