Surely one of the most unique and creative games ever?

It's crazy. I almost can't believe it exists. Am i dreaming, guys?

Did 100% the game today. I love the humor, and all the cool ways to solve the puzzles. I actually love almost everything about this game. If it wasn't for the occasionally bad framerate, i would consider it flawless.

I thought the framerate was intentional, to make it look like stop motion.

@ryanwho:
During cutscenes, yes. But especially in the later levels, it becomes an obvious performance issue.

Yes, and maybe the best game of 2011. We'll see how Uncharted or The Last Guardian turns out.

That may be my most anticipated game of the year.

Simply amazing. I can't wait to get home and play some more. Simply beautiful!

Tim Schafer really knows how to make completely different out-there games, concept-wise. When those concepts align with fun gameplay, it is remarkable.

I have yet to find a good Let's Play of it (I don't like playing games on my crap laptop, even if they're old)

Ooh that's this year? Things just keep getting better and better! 
 
I really need to play this game though, it looks great, and the gameplay seems really fun. I love games that offer multiple solutions to problems. 
 
About how many levels are there, and generally how many puzzles per level?

You're right, I shouldn't give Schafer sole credit. That's pretty stupid of me. Everyone at Double Fine is damn talented.

I had so much fun playing this, didn't really want it to end.  
 
Some of the puzzles were a little bit easy though as a lot of the characters you need would be just randomly standing really close to the puzzle when earlier they were far away.  
 
Double Fine should stick to these smaller games it suits them a lot better.

publisher doesn't want to pony up the money for a PC version, so probably not

I don't believe that at all. They said that about Brutal Legend and then EA put Deathspank 1 & 2 and Shank on Steam. THQ also put Darksiders on Steam which isn't guaranteed sales given the genre. Sounds like Double Fine is just looking for an excuse

I'm vaguely interested in what you think the real reason is, then.

No clue. Maybe Double Fine doesn't think it's worth the effort? I can think of VERY few games THQ doesn't put a pc port out for at one point or another.

I'm a couple hours in so far and while it's not their best-written game (that honor still goes to Psychonauts), it's their best venture in gameplay. I love the "explore all of your options" element of the objectives. And it's probably the most original concept of the year unless someone makes a dating simulator about silverware or something.

I just finished it and loved everything about it. It could have been a little longer though, but other than that it was perfect.

I love this game, really hope that more content is added.

Got 100% (ingame) a few days ago and I think I have only ever done that for one other game.

The final boss battle is nothing short of brilliance. 
And the cutscene preluding to it is amazing.
 
Only thing ticking me off is that my achievement bugged so I have to do the game all over to get all of those hi-jinks in the airship again.
List says 10/10 but it's saying 9/10 in the summary.
