Re: On puzzles, adventure, and how the genre could evolve...

And so I'm thinking, adventure games of the future should strive to create a flexible environment where creative solutions, sometimes not even thought of by the devs, could actually work out. The problem with that is creating multiple solutions and routes requires development time and money on thin...

On puzzles, adventure, and how the genre could evolve...

Welllllll, it's been a long time since I have made a pretentious post about how to save the gaming world! A discussion with peers about the nature of interaction and active narrative in shooters and RPG got me to think about adventure and puzzle games in general. And I really don't know why I've nev...

Re: Grim Fandango will be remastered....


This is our cue!

The Manny signal in the sky I've been waiting for.

Let's write the Grim Fandango Musical!

Re: Some sort of a review (because I can!)

There was no centralized game design person for this project. Aaron wrote the story but was, as far as I know, not really all that involved in the game design. Instead, the job floated out and landed on several people. I'm not disrespecting the efforts of anyone (nor am I attempting to kiss any ass...

Some sort of a review (because I can!)

Late to the party, but I've stayed as far away as I could from this international interweb hostel until I'd experience every possible bits of the game. I've also since read a ton of reviews and nearly all of your posts, so I may skip the obvious now and then! Bear in mind, please, that whatever may ...

Re: Who are you, Tex? (Spoiler: ALL games)

Excuse the slight bump, but this discussion is EXTREMELY reminiscent of UBIK, the other Phil K Dick masterpiece (and I'd say, superior in every way to his Electric Sheep, known as Blade Runner). It's impossible to summarize UBIK, or how both situations are very akin to one another, but I'm thinking ...

Enjoy it guys!

I'm getting away with an average of 65$ per week, with zero leftovers whatsoever, for five days, on a 3-meal per day average. Saturday and Sunday is "eat whatever $#it you fancy", for sanity's sake! Rarely eat more than breakfast and lunch on those days, though. Alone or as a couple it's s...

Hey mang. Can't fully relate, but I've been a pretty severe case of anxiety, with a modest attention disorder. What counsel I have to share mainly concerns the anxiety part, but I'm so blown away by the events of the past month I feel it could surely help people out there, including you, if ever so ...

Re: Tex Murphy Returns!... To RetroNick Radio

I don't know how, to be honest. There is no English equivalent of the sound. Norwegian is weird that way, I guess. Bjorn knows what I'm talking about, though. Maybe he knows a way? Well? Do ya, punk? -Fred It's be easier to teach a donkey to do backflips than to teach an american how to pronounce y...

Re: Jim the old guy still here?

I heard Jim actually gets younger every year.

But other conflicting reports suggest he might actually be going through cycles, from young to old to young, and back again.

Re: New Doctor Who

The interesting thing about the Doctors is the contrast between each of them. Going from Smith, which I liked, to Capaldi, which I'm already sold on, makes it all that much better. Keeps things fresh. Say what you will about Smith, but after Tennant, who was terrific but seemed overall tired and emo...

Re: Is It Soup Yet?

As Matthew said, time is hardly an issue with Tex. This is one other area where it pays off to have a slower-paced game, with a non-traditional hero. Chris could be 70 and still do a boss job as a credible detective. Sonny would have made a great PI to play. And for what it's worth, Ford was still e...
