Hey guys, just wanted to share something kind of heart warming. The last episode of the broken age developement documentary ("double fine adventure") is up, and although i can't talk about it without talking about the other 14 episodes i caught this:

right over Tim's forearm, General Taswell himself, i didnt expect it, and it inmediately made me grin.

on a side note, the game is beautifull, and i have enjoyed it inmensly even if it is a tad too easy.

Also, the documentary alone is worth my backer money, so I'm super pleased with the way things have worked out.

cheers!

That is so fantastic I really like Tim such a genuine person, I wish him and his company all the best they deserve better success from their products, even when they aren't perfect there is so much originality and heart.

I think that was in another episode as well (at least someone has brought that same thing up before, except awhile ago). I think its just something that Tim has on his desk. Still really cool though! Anyone know if they plan on making the Doc available to non backers at some point?

That looks like the pin Giant Bomb gave out to people who went to their PAX Prime panel last year. Whether he got it there or somewhere else, it's really awesome to see it in such a prominent place on his desk.

Yeah, that is awesome. I want to say that someone else actually made a topic about this same thing awhile ago.

That's pretty awesome. Ryan may be gone, but he's far from forgotten.

I think this was posted when the backers got the video, or something like that. Still, it's great to show for the people who haven't heard.

Neat. Time to go watch.

Ok, that section with the marketing research, where they say to take out all the stuff in Psychonauts that makes it unique... Can you imagine where we'd be without focus testing?

I totally missed that. Guess that's what I get for watching without watching (trying to beat XIII-2 in time!).

Man, I would pay to be able to read that document. What a crazy crazy thing!

Double Fine and Giant Bomb have always seem pretty tight, it's a wonderful little thing though.

Pretty sure it has been there for a while, I remember seeing it in a screencap of a previous episode of the documentary. Still, it's nice that Tim Schafer is keeping it on his desk.

@eladren: Nice catch! Is this documentary include the footage shown at PAX East or is it new?
