I thought I heard my name, but then I realized it was just Gary calling Ron a grump.

Really informative. :-)

Ron, will there be a puzzle in Thimbleweed Park involving snow considering your love for skiing? It would be cool if there was one mysterious location with a totally different climate.

David Fox - Jan 09, 2016 at 12:50
You heard Bunker?? I said Bumper... or was it Grumper? Yeah, Grumper.

Arto - Jan 09, 2016 at 15:44
For some reason I already thought there was a bunker... I mean a grumper.

Ron, would you be so kind to implement the feature requests of David? Gary should help you with the idiosyncrasies of Linux. That could avoid some nasty Easter eggs...

Sorry to steal space, but I don't think it's unrelated: after Ron&Gary, it's time for Don&Gary: the Dragon's Lair movie on Indiegogo is working fine in raising funds for its pitch teaser.

Personally, I've become a fan of Don Bluth and his work. Dragon's Lair had terrible gameplay, but I was completely thrilled by the visual art.

This could be good time to support handmade animation.

Wait wait wait...... there's a hotel?

On a serious note, for the Xbox version, while I'll be sticking with the PC version, please make sure there's an option to invert the y-axis and allow cursor speed sensitivity to be adjustable, it drives me crazy when games don't feature that.

Having Ron talk about revamping Thimbleweed's website, with press info and al, gives me opportunity for a shameless plug:

I'm building momentum for a game-music kickstarter, so dear comment-readers, if you want to make "New Music by Michael Land" happen, register on our prefundia page:

And yes, support Don Bluth's team and the Dragon's Lair fundraise!

This seems a little strange: you're planning a Kickstarter to get the money together to try and convince someone to record an album for you.. I suspect you have it a bit backwards.

Also why do you put a TM symbol after his name on your page.. did he trademark his actual name?

kickstarter - Jan 10, 2016 at 12:56
(Facepalm) 1. Funds to finance the album, please read the background. 2. The TM is an injoke, read it like "the real/actual/original...".  -- Did I read that right: U think it's a great idea. :)

Just a thought,

                            I'm gonna miss these podcasts when the game is done.
it's been amazing to feel so close to the team. i would always wonder what the offices are like with you guys in them working away.
still saving up for the boxset edition.

Second that!
