Aye. Alas, selling interviews with CJ and AC is harder than selling interviews with Tim Schaefer, or even Al Lowe. They're going to have to work hard to turn heads on this one. The pitch video was a...

Man, the average pledge on Day 1 was like $120. It wasn't the DRM backlash, it was just that Tex's fanbase is small but very passionate, and they gave immediately and generously. That momentum was...

Schafer is also a media darling with access to virtually unlimited free advertising. That's a big part of what allowed it to get as far as it did.
I split my pledge between both. If SpaceVenture...

This is simply not true. Regardless of ideal intent, DRM is not expected to PREVENT piracy, but rather to delay it. Most people buy games in the first couple months they're out. If you can come up...

I'd call it an action adventure since it's not really "pure", but it's definitely more adventure game than not.

Not so fast. I think this might actually be a straight up game announcement of a new Tex game they've been working on without any kickstarting required. If you look at the new GamesTM it says Fedora...

Not as a "story consultant" anyway. And she would have more pull if she hadn't just done an adventure game (particularly one that seems to have gotten a pretty tepid reaction).

Where did he say that? I've been following his twitter closely and saw no such promise.

I don't think you're appreciating the difference between trained 2D animators and people that know how to make 2D art. It's about efficiency and speed, not ability.

My main concern here is that they're going 2D, but they don't really have a staff of 2D animators, and it just might not be an efficient way to go. When LucasArts went to high end 2D with CoMI, they...

Now you might be understanding why they have a documentary as well. In the pitch video they definitely say "If this goes badly, at least it's all caught on camera."

If it was at a time of year when I had money, $100, no problem. UAKM and PD are probably my favorite adventure games.

I'm not sure this is the case. In fact, I wouldn't be shocked if the plan for the game arose out of interest in doing a film. They'd need a project that can be filmed in 6 months or so, not the usual...
