    If that's an act DSP is one of the most dedicated performers out there (probably just some Assperger's). Never forget this is the guy who spent 52 minutes stacking things in black mesa before giving up because he couldn't figure out how to crouch jump despite the game and people telling him exactly how to do it.

    PS DSP also spent 5+ minutes running around a 15 sqft room in one of the newer alien games trying to figure out what they meant by get in the turboloader despite the exoskeleton being very obviously lit up in center of the screen.

    Let me just correct you here, the spelling goes P-U-D-G-Y, because you seem to have misspelled it.





    also,
    wow what a terrific audience.

    Most people on Steam don't even play the games they own for more than an hour. It's too bad there are no achievements, otherwise you'd most likely see 10-20% of them have the 'finish X chapter' one.

    I have to say, I succesfully endured though the wire puzzle at the ending, even with that awful timing thingie (FOR GOD'S SAKE, DONT GO DOWN THE LADDER). I suffered though that puzzle where you have to bring the little dude to the locked room, have no idea how I solved it. But man, the puzzle with the snake, piss off. I was stuck half an hour with that thing. At least the game was not so easy compared to the first act.
    Overall it was a fine game, not quite as good as the first one, and to tell you the truth, I felt the ending was quite bad. Not felt a single thing when the credits rolled out. Maybe a little dissapointed, by all the time Double Fine took, and how the final product ended up.
    Wonder how many millions Schafer will need for the sequel.

    Achievements were added partway through the development cycle for part 2 and are there for the whole game.

    Stats will be weird though because if you played part 1 before they happened, you can continue on with part 2 and not have any of them from the first part even though you couldn't be there without getting them. Part of the reason they were recommending starting again (fuck that)

    It's like a live action South Park character. And I'm not talking about the puppet.

    How the fuck did he put so much money into it (enough to get the t-shirt) when his first adventure game was Machinarium?

    Also, I can recommend watching the Frog Fractions, Space Quest and Don't Shit Your Pants LPs on their channel, pretty fun. edit: also, the QWOP LP!

    Yeah, that was weird.:D I know I can't come up with a sensible explanation, it just boggles the mind.:S At least he surprised me by not loving this POS game.

    When they said 'caught up in the hype', he pointed at himself. The hype for the BA Kickstarter was like a feeding frenzy.

    The hype was pretty major - and not just from the point of view of a DF game, or an adventure game, but as a "Hey, we can fund a game we want!" angle. That's a very major component of DF's initial success. Perhaps they have somehow thought it was all due to DF being DF, so anything goes, except it wasn't really that. Just the excitement to be able to fund a game that the gamers would supposedly want.

    To wit, to this day, no Kickstarter game has gotten more backers than Broken Age did, I believe. More money yes, but not more people.

    Yeah. I just wonder if this very thing was a major cause for DF's eventual "downfall" - mis-attributing the attention and the favour with their KS to being caused purely by DF's merits.
