They grind the wheat to make flour and I’m sure some boiling gets done at some point in proceedings, even if just to make their tea :-)
Others who toil? Hmm maybe the front of shop staff who sell the bread.
They work in the early hours of the morning.

Stu, I was wondering, what keeps someone from voting with some old barely used user name from this forum?
Maybe I'm one of those people that come out of the woodwork every now & then? Surely it's not a problem to vote as long as you've played the games which I've mostly done - I don't think getting through 11 & a bit out of 12 is bad! :)
Don't worry, Ciara. Brane was refering to the fact that someone could use a name on the voting form of a user who is not active in the forum, in order to give themselves extra votes. I could easily check this by asking people to confirm their choices by PM.

So far I see no sign of shenanigans, although a quirky voting pattern has emerged which I can't really talk about yet without giving something away. Maybe I'll mention it in the post-MAGGIES analysis.

Probably decided to redo it in Unity.(roll)


For what? I beat The Chrysalis in short time without hints. A so short game don't need a video-walkthrough.

Negative. Jupiter Hadley (for example) makes a point of playing pretty much everything she can get her hands on and plays a lot of jam games (which are always going to be short). She doesn’t get nearly as many views at she deserves but 5000 subscribers isn’t to be sniffed at.

My only gripe was the overacting of the guy who played Chucky.
Well colour me gripeless, because it just came to my attention that not only is ‘the guy who played Chucky’ not a guy, but is in fact the same actress who played his sister Judy (who is also known among fans for playing the mother in the amazing episode ‘Home’).

I won’t retract my ‘overacting’ comment but knowing she played both parts does change it a bit. And clearly she played a dude well enough to fool me so I’m impressed.

Was the victim’s body in the sunlight?
Was the victim sunburnt?

I think maybe it was a hot sunny day so you’d expect someone who’s been in the sun for ten hours to be heavily burnt [although maybe sunburn work differently for dead people]. However our victim had no burns (or less than expected burns), thus proving that his body had been placed there some time after death.

These look great. They don’t work on mobile but I’m looking forward to having a gander when I get to a computer :-)

Despite being on the floor, was the sunflower in the daylight when the detective saw it?

I only got around to seeing “This” yesterday and just watched “Plus One” 5 minutes ago. Both pretty solid episodes, reminiscent of old X-Files and without the cheesy time stamp references to smartphones and Google that plagued season 10. Plus One is especially old-school. My only gripe was the overacting of the guy who played Chucky. I know was supposed to be mentally ill but it was quite OTT.

I’m no big shipper but I’m glad Chris Carter is addressing the relationship, if only for the fact that he has finally shut the psycho fanfic shippers up for a while.

Never heard of or seen this but it sounds fun.
When I was a kid I used to love The Miraculous Mellops. Weird stuff. I believe that was Aussie.

I think there’s a relationship between the sunflower and the fact that the windows are curtainless.

Was the sunflower open?
Was the sunflower closed?
We’re there any sunflower seeds in the crime scene?
Was the plant pot upended with the soil only just spilling out onto the floor (suggesting it was placed there gently rather than knocked over in a struggle)?
Are ‘we’ actually a detective?

Are there any footprints in the soil?
Is there a clock in the room?
Is there a safe in the wall where the painting fell from?

Did you ever get hold of them, Radiant?

Had there been an earthquake 10 hours prior?
Was the man known to the detective?
Were the curtains anywhere to be seen?
Was he the only victim in the property?
Was he clothed?

Sweet. This game’s going to be epic.

Nice one dude. Does this mean you have to work on sundaes?

Stranger Things: The College Years

Why shouldn't an action game fit into the theme? I can think of a few...

Just have the princess tell the hero at the end "Thanks but no thanks." and that she had actually eloped with the villian, not been kidnapped.
You’ve just made me rethink the whole of Mario Odyssey!

Hi SilverSpook, I love your podcasts very much, just wanted to ask if its possible to upload also just the audiofile somewhere else than on youtube next time you release an episode. (Just in case its not any trouble, if it is please ignore me.)
Same. I almost exclusively listen to podcasts when I’m walking about or traveling to work, and YouTube on iPhone is a terrible combination for that. I’d be listening religiously if the audio was on iTunes or Spotify, but currently I’m behind by almost s many episodes as there have been recorded :-)

There’s an interesting quirk I’ve noticed on the “games you have and haven’t rated” page.

If you go to that page but aren’t logged in, a bunch of games come up as “games you have rated”

Here is the list in question (in case it helps work out the cause):

Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy!
King's Quest II+ VGA
A Tale of Two Kingdoms
Chance Of The Dead
The Perfidious Petrol Station
Pester Quest
Starship Quasar
