    You don't even need all your coin. It's a whopping 5 dollars of mirth and joy. Take this into your home and care for it! The rewards shall be great.

    Seriously, it's good.

    Five dollars AND you get their two previous ventures (which are both enjoyable) for free, and if you already have them, you can gift them to other folks, spreading the old school RPG love around.

    First they came for the Muslims, and we said NOT TODAY, MOTHERFUCKER!

    It's so cheap, I gifted three copies to people I barely know. It's cheaper than lunch for most of us. You should give Zeboyd your 5 bucks.

    It's Tuesday for me? But it's a shame that this might go to waste, so I'll just post it anyway for your optional edification/harvest.
    Let legend speak
    Let stepdad share
    Of that one time
    Tube banned a bear

    The moon shone bright
    on dark, corse fur
    As grizzly trolled
    a forum-er

    Claws so sharp
    A menacing stare
    (This isn't working)
    You had to be there

    The crime was henious
    and goosey too
    The beast extolled
    Hitman II

    Such obv. trolling
    by fearsome mammal
    demanded that
    Tube ban it's handle

    Mod sauntered forth
    Ban hammer high
    "Draw a horse!"
    His battle cry

    The ursine froze
    it's mirth fleering
    It knew of horses
    naught but eating

    Quoth the bear
    of an excursion
    Perhaps escape
    lay by deversion

    "Oh father figure
    of Lewie P,
    find a deal
    on Blood Money?

    Tube's smile grew
    The bear's abaited
    The answer came
    "We're not related."

    Infraction dealt
    Forget the zoo
    The bear's in jail

    Do we get to see the winners' fine prose?

    Since you asked - my sweet haiku won one.
    :(, a haiku

    Red pandas are cute
    Their zoo habitat - outside
    But they're nocturnal!

    And then I realized I had money in my Steam wallet for the upcoming sale and felt bad for not supporting the Zeboyd guys. So if you don't have the sawbuck to spare feel free to enter this steamgifts drawing (it should include Breath of Death VII and Cthulhu Saves the World as well).

    Damn, I plan on buying it (on Xbox, steam, and iOS) but wanted to enter. Thought I had more time.

    Do we get to see the winners entries? Love that slash and rainbow are moving up in the world. Gamers for us, by us. Most enjoyable rpg's I've played in years. Id love it if somehow they became a big studio. They get it.

    My haiku about the subject of Zeboyd's last game also won a copy of RSPD3. Now that I'm playing it, though, I might just go ahead and buy a copy for the other two games I haven't played yet.
    Cthulhu, with Lime

    There once was a creature who smote
    The town of Innsmouth with its throat
    It sang with great mirth
    The song that ended the Earth
    But got smashed in the head with a boat

    Just to clarify,
    What you've got there's a limerick.
    Haikus look like this.

    One too many syllables.

    (Alternatively the second line could read "What you've got's a limerick" but I hold to my pronunciation of "limerick" as two syllables.)

    Then you're wrong and smell like poop and I hate you.

    Whoops, you're right, guys. That's a lim-rick I got there. I should have known better, because I am from Nantucket after all.

    Nantucket's where cooljammer's from
    So with limericks he ought not to be dumb.
    But when naming his limerick,
    He went with "haiku." (sic)
    That's no reason at all to be glum.

    So while I was happy to support PA by buying RSPD when it was released, I was kinda expecting it to be released on Mac (via Steamplay) because of Tycho's post here. While I purchased it again from the Mac app store, I am a little less enthused about having to buy two copies so I can play on my gaming PC and my Mac laptop (when traveling). I guess there was a miscommunication between PA and Zeboyd?

    So fuck me, there's a post about it on Zeboyd's website:
    The Mac version of the game is not on Steam yet but we’re working with Valve to get it up ASAP. Not sure if it will come out today (they’re really busy over there at the moment what with all the new games coming out this time of year). I’ll let you know when it goes up.

    I only posted here for the blue dot.

    Man, just got the Android version for my S3, sad to say it's very crashy and slow at this point. Crashy as in answering a phone call, getting a text, or even the standard 30-second-screen-timeout will cause the game to quit. Most droid games would override the timeout thing, but apparently this port still needs work. As for slowness, I'd say it's running at 2/3rds to half speed of the PC version. Bought in faith that some revenue through this channel as well as feedback will prompt a fix...

    I just got this for Xbox a few days ago, and I'm really enjoying it. At least, I am up to one specific point.

    Very, very slight spoilers ahead.

    The game has no problem up to the start of chapter three. I have no problem leaving the museum and the characters have their two instances of dialogue, once after leaving the museum and another just before reaching the house. The crash occurs during the dialogue when I try to enter the house and always happens after the same piece of dialogue.

    The specific piece of Dialogue is the 7th one when trying to enter the house. Where Tycho says "I try not to leverage the more arcane terms of art, but this house is magicked out the wazoo. Wait a second." The game crashes when I press A to go to the next dialogue card.

    The Error message I get is Code 4.

    I have restarted the game and played to that point multiple times. I have deleted and redownloaded the game and update. I've cleared the cache. I have mixed and matched these three in as many variations as possible. Nothing seems to help. The only thing I haven't done is reformat my entire hard drive and start EVERYTHING from scratch, which I somehow doubt would do much good.

    This is the first time I have had this problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't know if this is relevant to the problem but I also noticed that I suddenly have access to the colosseum at the start of chapter three, even though I don't get the animation of the path to it being unlocked like I have for every other location in the game.

    So excited that you guys released this on XBLIG should bring a lot of attention to that section of the XBox world.
