I'm going to blame it all on Steve for not telling me they were broken until the day you posted this. Took me 20 mins to fix. It's because Godaddy changed some legacy settings around without saying anything and it broke it all. I had to reconfigure a few bits and we were back.

Few things still buggered like the Like system, will get to that. But hey we can post again!

IQ Chat / New Website & Forum

Hey guys, long time since I've posted.

So I stumbled across the old website, thought it looked outdated so I've now rebuilt it. It's cleaner, sharper and responsive.

Also made the forums responsive too and got rid of that broken Tapatalk bollocks.

I know nobody really uses forums anymore, but figured I'd put a little message. Probably still some broken bits here and there so will get to it.

It's because she wants to eat something and Finn isn't intent on being her dinner! Read up more about the Raptor's diet at the library and try and find a way to provide the raptor some food.

Is it there now?


I'm really disappointed we didn't write this as Finn's response to the troll.

This is what children's TV should be. I think. Probably not actually.

I believe we were going to fix a few of these inconsistencies in the cancelled Gold Edition because as Steve said this was our first foray into game development and ultimately we just wanted to prove that we could release a game. Looking back at it there are of course a lot of things we'd like to change but with no plans to go back to it we just have to accept it for what it is, a labour of love from a bunch of fans.

It's decent enough so far. It reminds me of Psychonauts in terms of gameplay and Psychonauts in one of the best games ever. It's got its adventure-y elements but there's plenty of QTE sequences too. I'm questioning a few design decisions here and there but so far it's been a nice experience and I can deal with some of the quirky humour.

What I don't like is the 'zaniness' of Graham. You could look at something and act like a kid with ADHD dizzy on lemonade. I don't mind the silliness of other stuff and the guards have made me laugh out loud a few times but it's just too over the top at times. I'd much prefer Graham to just be confused and inquisitive about the world around him rather than bouncing up and down like a lunatic. People have been comparing him to Guybrush Threepwood but I disagree because he only really acts goofy in Escape from Monkey Island and Tales. He acts more like Spongebob Squarepants than anyone else I can think of which is not how I ever imagined to describe Graham.

I really like the art and environments though. The music is also very nice and ambient with familiar melodies playing throughout.

Wallace Shawn and Christopher Lloyd are awesome. Perfect casting.

Yeah they're very good, I quite like the idea of him being the stand-in narrator. And the guards are very funny too and well cast. As I said Graham is annoying but nowhere near as annoying as Gwendolyn. I feel like I'm getting an audio commentary from Hannah Montana. Just shut up and let Christopher Lloyd tell the damn story.

Overall, I'm still playing it and it may sound like my opinion is a bit mixed so far but I'm sure I'll warm to it. I just wasn't prepared for how goofy it was going to be. It could end up being a good thing.

I liked Rynn. His accent was weird though.
