  1. He left a while ago, and is now working at Bossa Studios. According to Wikipedia:



    He is currently working on an unannounced cooperative game that is "trying to do something new in the narrative space using [artificial intelligence]"


  2. Agreed, loved the


    Kierkegaard rap musical

    especially. A bit of a coincidence was that I was talking with friends about the trolley problem earlier in the week, and experiments asking what people would do in various permutations of it (I'd just listened to a RadioLab episode about it), and one of my friends suggested that people should be put in a VR simulation of it to see what they would really do.


    Anyway if there is a better moral philosophy-based sitcom around at the moment I would like to hear about it.

    But if you get the wrong end of the stick - and it still works - and works repeatedly - that's the issue here.


    Where you see a bug, I see a feature. It certainly allows - even encourages - you to assume a puzzle-type is obeying a simple rule where a more complex rule is actually the case. Typically you come across a puzzle that contradicts the simple rule, and then you need to construct a rule that satisfies both the new puzzle and the old ones, and experiment. The maze puzzles are one kind of challenge in the game; working out the rules for the mazes is the higher-order challenge, and that for me is what the game is about.

  4. The last few posts seem to be missing what I thought was the whole point of the game. There's not a single instruction in the game, and everything you learn is through induction; part of the puzzle of the game is questioning the assumptions you have made along the way, which I think it does brilliantly. It's a game about inductive reasoning, not the kind of deductive reasoning you would use to fill in a crossword.


  5. I'm really enjoying this, and don't have much else to add except to say that every time Chidi says "What?!" I *will* laugh. I feel the same kind of warmth to the characters as I did in Parks & Rec. I read somewhere that the writers have the first 3 seasons plotted, so I am intrigued to see where they take it.


    re spoilers:


    I think that if you were watching it with no other knowledge than there is a big twist at the end of S1, you would guess what it was within the first episode, so this is one of those cases where even the mention of a "twist" would be a spoiler for some.

    Quick ask: best GoT podcast? Obvs one that doesn't discuss the books ideally.  




    Not sure about the best, but the third best is Boars, Gore, and Swords - two American stand-ups recap each episode. It's more of an entertaining review of each episode rather than the kind of in-depth plot analysis you'd get from Cast of Kings, and obviously funny is in the eye of the beholder, but I really like it.

    Is it very easy to get lost/stuck whilst playing?


    No, it's usually obvious what you do next, due to both how it's all laid out and the camera will occasionally subtly point you in the right direction if there's something important to notice.


    Great game, I'd recommend going in knowing as little as possible about it. For purchasing decisions, know that you'll complete it in about 3 hours, and I don't think they'll be any particular value in replaying it, if that's a factor.

    Any decent VR in sale? (I already have superhot)


    I had a scan through but it all looked a bit meh (I might get job simulator).


    I've bought a couple: Pinball FX2 VR - I'll just say that I'm sure the Mars table is great for people who can cope with spiders constantly in their peripheral vision - and Thumper, a rhythm action game, which is excellent so far and looks really good in VR. (Both seated games, not room-scale)


    Job Simulator is fun for a couple of hours, and a good demo to show new people to get used to the controllers etc. It's my kids' VR game of choice when they get the chance.

    Please show me the ways of Invisible Inc Master Wavey.


    Oh, I enjoyed it - I never said I was any good at it though! It's one of those games I played for a week, enjoyed it a lot - it's super tense for a turn-based game - and then either life or another game intervened and I would now have to relearn it. I keep meaning to go back to it though!

    The Tweetbot, Youtube Capture & PhotoPen apps I use won't be though which is a shame, can't see any of these getting updated.

    Tweetbot 4 seems fine, it's not on my list - are you using an older version?


    Otherwise I have a bunch of kids' apps unsupported, and the only other ones on my phone I'm bothered about are XCOM and Magnetic Billiards (though I suspect there may be more on my ipad, will have to check later).

  12. A bit niche, but if anyone enjoys the kind of mellow comfort hidden object games can provide, here are a few spare keys for some Artifex Mundi games (from this bundle):


    Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink *G9Q6-T40ET-MATDH

    Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride *G35F-E8GGE-WMJ8E

    Grim Legends 2: Song of the Dark Swan *FJ6T-W9QVT-V0C4G

    Mind Snares: Alice's Journey *GQKN-AE7E6-V00ZK


    To confound the bots, I've removed the first characters - add the number two to the start of each of them to get a valid key.

    When does the payment come out? Just before the games release or the day that you sub and subsequently that day each month?


    If you're subscribed, payment is taken a week before the games are unlocked.

    Out of stock now :(


    The 20EUR ones are still in stock - I just bought 3 with the 5% Facebook discount, which currently gives you £50.61 Steam credit for the total cost of £42.72. Slightly less good percentage-wise, but still a decent saving.
