I don't know what I'm more excited by, a new classic Ron Gilbert game, or a fresh new post from the legend Ray Jones!

I hadn't heard of this either, but I haven't read Rons page for a while, life and kids just get the better of me from time to time.

Looks great. Now Rons back to writing classic adventures, I'm hoping that somehow this is the beginning of light at the end of the tunnel for his version of Monkey Island 3. If he used kick starter to fund buying the rights from Lucas/Disney, I'd chip in with a cheeky 50 quid.

Forget it. Disney loves monkeys, and will never give up the rights.

Monkey Islands got to be a fairly tired franchise as far as they're concerned, it's probably not worth that much to them, I don't think it's completely out of the question (admitedly unlikely).

He could just do something loosely similar with Brygush Weepthud and Piratey Ghost Chuckley however.

For the record, I'm now mega mega excited by Thimbleweed Park, it's looking like it's gonna be a goodun (apart from the huge library bit which looks a bit wanky lol).

Just need Rays thoughts now.

He's like Betelguise, just say his name 3 times.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

git: 'grumpy' is not a git command. See 'git --help'.




if(!strcmp(nick, "DrMcCoy") && !strcmp(avatar, "Spock")) return E_INSANE;

Sorry my mistake, I didn't do it in computer speak:-

10 print "grumpygit", 20 goto 10
10 print "grumpygit", 20 goto 10
10 print "grumpygit", 20 goto 10

Roy, that's crazy talk in computer speak. It's:

10 print "grumpygit"
20 goto 10

Or, perhaps you meant:

10 print "grumpygit"
20 print "grumpygit"
30 print "grumpygit"

Honestly. When the old codgers forget Basic...

No man, the chant has to be three identical lines repeated. The code being functional is irrelevant and purely to satisfy the gods of geekiness.

Ha, would that not just summon some laundry?

I really am super excited about Thimbleweed, I see they have MI1 artist Mark Ferrari working on the graphics.
