Re: FRANK

There is a new Jim Woodring documentary that you can watch free:

Re: creepy ads

I'm not familiar with the ad referenced in the original post, but this 1969 International House of Pancakes commercial is kind of odd.

Dreams on PS4

I think Dreams may be the closest thing to ZZT since ZZT. The editor is easy to use and I like the way you can freely incorporate anything that anyone else has made. Also, there's no way to make money from anything and I think that encourages a certain type of creativity. It just left beta a couple ...

Re: FRANK

I read Weathercraft again recently. I think it's my favorite of the four recent books, though I like them all.

Re: Steambot Chronicles

Fortunately, it looks like Disaster Report 4 is going to be released after all. Though there doesn't seem to be any word of an English release so far. That game and Steambot Chronicles 2 were both canceled after the 2011 earthquake/tsunami.

Re: spacechem

I never got around to playing SpaceChem, but I sure liked Opus Magnum. I even got the physical patch in the mail for beating the game while it was in "Early Access."

Re: Regarding Flimsy

I have only talked with Flimsy briefly a couple times, but one exchange we had about a year ago makes a lot more sense after reading that long "explanation" page. I didn't really know what to make of it at the time. (It had nothing to do with suicide.) I hope that he created the archive of his work ...

Re: Could we bring ZZT back?

ZZT Ultra looks very nice. I don't know what it would take to generate more interest in ZZT among people who aren't already nostalgic about it, but I think something like this could inspire me to work on a ZZT game again. It looks like the editor has some good features. One small (?) thing that I th...

Re: Boss Fight Books Kickstarter includes ZZT

I thought I had contributed to the Kickstarter, but I guess I never did. I just finished reading the book, though, and I liked it a lot. I'm glad she was able to interview people such as draco and Alexis Janson (and many others). It would be fun to read the extended interviews as well, if there was ...

Re: Demon's Souls and Dark Souls

There's another one of these games now, and it's good, too. Though maybe not quite as good as the first two. There's also an art book that's too short but fun to look at, and it has a nice interview with the design team in the back. http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m58/plecostomus_2006/ds_dog.jpg

Amiga musician TDK has reworked some of his old songs. I like this one especially:

Re: Ichi the Killer

I haven't seen Ichi the Killer--seems like it would be a little much for me--but I did watch The Happiness of the Katakuris the other night. It was amusing.
