"Double Fine has a really bad release history"

You must be on some good ****, because that statement is insane.

aerozol @ SOPA and PIPA - our internet freedom

An issue is that the claims against MegaUpload are not very good from a legal standpoint.
If MegaUpload is sentenced for things like "not having a search bar", it's setting a dangerous precedent in the courts, which is just as damaging as a bill like SOPA.

We'll see, but honestly, most of the charge that I've read is based on made-up figures and weird comments on what they spent their money on. Will be a case to watch.

aerozol @ Aubrey's Art Asset Overview #23 and #24

Obligatory stealth section?
Please please consider how much that usually sucks in almost all games, no matter how appropriate it might seem right now. The choice for stealth is always good, but it should always be a choice, unless the rest of the game constantly involves stealth as well.
Not saying you guys were going to do that or anything, but I had warning bells go off, and wanted to share (;

Edit: Mute characters are fine, but then they probably will need some extra effort on characterization, eg facial animation/ recognizably different personalities/ facial features + modelling.

aerozol @ Adventures, Overworlds and the "Full version"

Holy ****. The overworld would take this to another level.
The visuals so far are really nice, so if you maintain that style (more or less), I doubt you'll get any complaints.

Bricks + chains: just get rid of them. imo.
Give the maps the screen space they deserve.

aerozol @ New Overgrowth a152 video devlog

Cooool.
Like ponpat said, it's a little bit worrying when you spend a week on fun details, that perhaps aren't part of the core game. But I think as long as you guys implement it in clever ways, you'll be adding enough value to make it more than worth it.
This stealth choke and body dragging is interesting on its own, but I would really really like to see what happens when you put it into enemy AI, and perhaps allow pulling around of not only bodies, but other elements. Would really explode the opportunities for this.

Oh wow, it included those too? (I bought it as a gift code, 'cause i already have that stuff) That's awesome.
FS soundtrack and _ensnare_ are great albums!

Haha, more work on blood effects. You crowd pleasers you (;
The stealth/sound system sounds like it's going to be awesome- I really look forward to seeing the 'background sound makes you harder to hear' feature implemented. Makes me excited about ambient sound effects for a change!
A small negative though, now that I've noticed how the rabbits ears move, it really bothers me. They seem a bit... soggy.

aerozol @ Selling mods

More of a mod that's evolved into its own game?
I wouldn't recommend many other mods try that though, because it's a risk... G'sM did well.

Looks like the community is pretty interested in this bag. Maybe a sub-plot starring only the bag would be cool? Jokes, looks good (;

aerozol @ Art Asset Overview #19 (HD Video)

You guys are really creative with a lot of your game mechanics, so I'm a bit disappointing to see a basic 'level select' map.
I think an open world (doesn't have to be seamless), with quick-travel options (the map looks nice, use it for that!!), is so much more appealing. I think it's still possible to have very clear progression and objectives, without cutting everything into 'levels'.

UI-wise I always really enjoy 'integrated' UI, eg Dead Space. That 'tech' UI doesn't really work for overgrowth, but health can easily be shown by animation/ character speed/ blood textures etc, and you could have the characters look at a map themselves/ check a pouch for items. The tricky way to do it for sure, but I like immersive UI.

aerozol @ Why do you pirate games?

"giving themselves a nice 87 percent discount"
No, because it's PAY WHAT YOU WANT. How much it costs elsewhere, is irrelevant. And people complaining about other people paying little amounts for the humble indie bundle are pathetic. They ignore that it is the thousands of these so-called 'SAD' people put together that earns the bundle nearly a mil pretty much every time they do something.

If you don't want people to pay what they want, don't set that as the price- and proceed not to make as much money as the humble bundles. Trust me.

It's pay what you want. Paying 50c is better for them than not getting it.
Just do what you can afford/feel like, and don't worry about what others are doing.

Really nice art, but I do feel the colour palette is a bit strong. The one in the header looks promising though.

aerozol @ New Overgrowth Art Asset Video (including a bonus timelapse)

Arena is coming together!
But you have to be careful not to spend to much time on very area specific assets, because having detailed areas amongst non-detailed expanse is going to start looking a bit fragmented, imo. Stalls will have parts that will be useful in adding life to most town areas though.
Rabbit food... They eat brambles, that would be cool (:

Nice concept art, and nice simple GDD.
You haven't really shown any other graphics that really set the theme or style for this though, or any mind-blowingly new concepts/ game mechanics, so not much more to say or be interested in at this point.
Criticism: Don't use font sizes over 12pt (;

If you were criticizing the game model, you should have mentioned it in your post. Without that information, it's open to interpretation.

aerozol @ Yokai tutorial gameplay

I'm not really interested in just playing a tutorial. If it's a very small download, perhaps, but you really need to release something 'fun' to play, otherwise you're going to get a mediocre response.

aerozol @ Minecraft's Plan for mods and api

Yes, except that with this agreement the modders can't 'disagree'.
If they could, any ******* who's quickly made a mod of something could effectively stop all updates in Minecraft involving even the idea or concept of what they've done. Once development of Minecraft stops, then that wont be necessary anymore, but it hasn't even been officially 'released' as a 1.0 yet.
You don't have to go to law school to realise that this would probably mean the end of Minecraft production (Unless Sweden has 'special' laws, but I don't think so).
