  1. I dunno who's sadder - him for making it, or me for clicking on it. Scrubbed through it - tug of war on a beach, DP talking bollocks, strange bikini zombies. Not quite sure who his audience is
  2. DD suffers more than most from “oh dear, you’re dead”, so we’re looking at various ways of implementing the “five finger bookmark”. From save points, to the ability to keep all your items and go back to any point you’ve visited in the game, we’re looking for something that’s fair but doesn’t spoil the game. We’re working from the original book, with some minor changes in situations where it says “if you have the shield” etc - the game already knows. There’s also an option to change the battle mechanics slightly, so it’s quicker for impatient customers
  3. Completed filming last weekend, now we’ve got to edit 42 hours of video.... Here’s Ian, Eddie and the crew on set:

    The return of FMV

    I quite liked The Bunker for its story, but there’s not a tremendous amount of interaction. Late Shift is nicely done, the transition between scenes is seamless. I couldn’t get on with Shapeshifting Detective at all. Her Story is next.... And of course there’s always Deathtrap Dungeon coming in October. Setup for filming starts today!

  5. We exhibited (well, plonked a few things on a table) at Fighting Fantasy Fest on Saturday. The response was overwhelming, especially with the kids who were really into playing the demo. Got a pic with the man himself!
  6. Oh! That’d help, wouldn’t it. I’m obviously not meant for a career in marketing. http://BranchingNarrative.com
  7. Thanks! Will keep you posted
  8. I'm finally allowed to talk about this, which is just as well as I was about to burst. Over the last 9 months or so, myself and Matt Spall have been working on an adaptation of Ian Livingstone's Deathtrap Dungeon. It's in the form of a video-based branching narrative game (in other words, Bandersnatch but betterer), with Eddie Marsan as the story teller. We're going to be demonstrating work in progress at this Saturday's Fighting Fantasy Fest, in sunny London. We'll be releasing later this year on PC, Mac, iOS and Android; with PS4, XBone, Switch and whatever else we can get our hands on, early in the new year. We're working with Ian to get the gameplay right, both for hardcore old-timers like ourselves, but also for a new generation of newbies. There's a mailing list signup on the web site if you want to get involved, and we'll be opening up a channel on Steam for feedback too in the coming weeks. Phew!
  9. Only just discovered Stranger Things, so me and Mrs Oaf binged all three series this week, it’s been brill! One thing I didn’t understand though, was
  10. I’m selling my VR kit, if anyone’s interested: Vive: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143328488798 Rift: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143328489916
  11. It is, if you can get past the first episode. I was all set for binning it, but the Mrs insisted we gave episode two a chance. We watched the whole series that night! PS I don’t think I’ve seen so many cigarettes being smoked in a tv show before.

    Doctor Who

    I suppose it’s still called Doctor Who because “Scooby Doo set in present day Sheffield” is a bit of a mouthful.
