Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

New DoubleFine Game is AWESOME

    Is it weird I replayed it with all characters?


    Is it even weirder that the reason I did it was to see if the dude at the end actually ended up naked?



    The answer is yes.

    There are a few niggling balance issues to settle, but nothing that really cheapens the experience or detracts from the difficulty. The kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick combo is perhaps too powerful considering its range advantage over the weaker punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch.

    Complete the game six times to unlock a hidden fighter, for a total of seven playable characters. It's a shame that yet another Double Fine game is destined to commercial failure, because after Marvel vs. Capcom fighting games aren't worth paying money for unless they have a roster three-dozen strong.

    No it really isnt.

    First, he would have to work for double fine.

    then it would be sitewhoring.

    next, the game in question would actually require some explanation. it doesnt.

    The prize is amazing, just as it was in La Mualana.

    Being the gnome king and jump kicking over and over is the best way to do things. The gnome was kind of hard, though.

    DOUBLE FINE’S NEW GAME NO LONGER A MYSTERY


    SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.—September 6, 2007—Double Fine Productions, Inc., today announced its heavily-anticipated second game, the first to come from the studio since their critically-acclaimed 2005 release, “Psychonauts.” In this all new, action based IP, you play the part of a barbaric hero in an epic fantasy world, fighting his way from Rock and Roll Hell to Rock and Roll Heaven.

    “We’ve been dying to talk about this game for so long,” says Double Fine President and CEO, Tim Schafer, “It feels great to finally be able to share it with the world. The team has put so much hard work into this title, and I think the wait was worth it. We’ve been able to put an extra layer of polish on the game, which is really important considering it has innovative features that are relatively new territory for us: A deep combat system, selectable characters, and dynamic dialog matrix that is completely different every time you play the game.”

    In a surprise move, the developer is distributing its game entirely by digital download, from its own, highly popular website. And in an even more surprising move, they are distributing the new title for free. To play the game, eager fans need only to follow this link.

    I dunno, I punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-punch-ed the shit out of everyone, unless they were smaller, which meant I had to rethink my strategy.

    Later found out that kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-kick-ing worked very handy for them.

    I didn't find the game itself funny, but I adore this thread. The first kick-kick-kick then punch-punch-punch post was made like 82 minutes ago and I'm still laughing about it.
