http://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/6407/#When:02:03:50Z<p>Hey guys, just wanted to clear up any confusion in case there are backers in here that don’t have access to the backer forums and just aren’t aware. The backer forums are actually just above this one on the main forum page. Perhaps you are a backer and don’t see them? If that’s the case, it’s mostly likely because your DF forum email does not match your Kickstarter email. That’s how we search our database grant access to backers. If this is the case, just go to your control panel and click email settings to change your email account to your Kickstarter email. If you already have done that and still have issues, just shoot us a message on Kickstarter and I’ll get you taken care of.</p>
<p>EDIT: Please note that it takes several hours for our system to authenticate you. Please wait a day before contacting us. Thanks!

<p>2012 has been a big first year for Game Club. We’ve made the transition to a community run event, and we managed to squeeze in 14 games, and 5 dev chats.</p>
<p>To get a better understanding for how people have enjoyed Game Club, and to get some thoughts about how we might approach 2013, we’ve put together this <a href="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dDQyU3c0NGkxN1N4YXJoQzRhQWtraVE6MQ">18 question survey</a>. All responses are anonymous, and results will be posted here at the end of the month.</p>
<p>A big thanks to everybody who joined us last year, and thanks especially to Greg, Syd, Fireflower, Mimness, lietu, jfrisby, Arthur and everybody else who has helped organise and run Game Club <img class="smiley" src="http://www.doublefine.com/images/smileys/smile.gif" alt="smile" style="border:0;" /> </p>

http://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/7363/#When:01:13:26Z<p>I just wanted to know what other people are backing on Kickstarter?</p>
<p>I am backing two cross platform adventure games:<br />

http://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/9014/#When:15:42:56Z<p>Here is what it says on <a href="http://www.brokenagegame.com">http://www.brokenagegame.com</a> :<br />
“Backer access includes: private backer-only discussion forums, all past and ongoing episodes of 2 Player Productions’ documentary series following the development of the game, a wealth of development materials from the Double Fine team, beta access when available, and of course the DRM-free game download for PC, Mac, & Linux.”</p>
<p>I would like to preorder 15$ version… do I get Steam version too?
</p>2013-03-29T15:42:56-08:00How to back the project if you don’t have a credit card
http://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/5981/#When:15:27:22Z<p>Hello, people who want to back our Adventure but don’t have a credit card!</p>
<p>Kickstarter uses Amazon Payments, and they require a credit card—they can’t work with Paypal or anything else besides a credit card.</p>
<p>BUT you can use a <b>pre-paid</b> credit card and that will work great.</p>
<p>The thing is, I don’t know much about pre-paid credit cards. Like, where do you get them? Shady back alleys? And what about other countries? I need info so I’m asking you guys to share your experiences here to help out those credit-card-less people who want to get involved but can’t. </p>
<p>One backer from the Netherlands (Hi Norbert!) shared his method with us via email. Here are the steps he gave:
1. Bought a Ukash voucher.<br />
2. Converted it to a Ukash NEO prepaid MasterCard.<br />
3. Used that prepaid (debit) card to back the project<br />
Such a card is a (temporary/virtual) prepaid MasterCard. It works just<br />
fine with Amazon Payments.</p>
<p>The Ukash NEO prepaid MasterCard I used was completely virtual: all I had to do is go out and buy a Ukash voucher; all other steps I could perform from behind my computer.
<p>First comment: What the heck is Ukash?</p>
<p>Anyway, he also said that if you buy a pre-paid credit card in a store you have to fill out a bunch of personal information about yourself, but if you go the virtual route as he describes it’s much faster and less of a hassle.</p>
<p>I feel a little weird sharing this information without first-hand knowledge, but I can’t think of an easy way to test it out. If anybody else wants to verify, or share their own methods here, I’d really appreciate it!</p>
<p>Have you backed the DFA without a regular credit card? Tell us how!

http://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/10027/#When:10:39:15Z<p>For those who don’t know, sourcefed is a youtube news channel that was created by Philip Defranco. They have a weekly video called table talk where they discuss a bunch of random stuff. This time they chose to focus on video games, and the results are pretty interesting. They do swear though, so for those who are squeamish you are warned.</p>
<p>Starting around 19:10, Trisha explains why she didn’t expect to love the P&C adventure game Myst. The result of this is worth seeing by anyone who wants a good laugh. I’m sure most of us fans of P&C adventure games have had something very similar to this happen before when we try to explain why we love P&C adventure games. What I was wanting to know is what do you guys do when you meet a person who really doesn’t like P&C adventure games?
http://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/9316/#When:21:22:00Z<p>Hey, I’m super late to the party and just started watching the documentary. In episode 2 there was discussion about the puzzles interrupting the game “flow.” That couldn’t be further from the truth! Well thought out puzzles that are genuinely challenging were some of my favorite aspects of old adventure games. </p>
<p>In addition, there was a magic moment whenever I solved a puzzle where my logic seemed like it was strange and couldn’t possibly be right or shared by the game designers. An example of this would be shooting the banjo in Curse of Monkey Island (or was it escape?). I couldn’t beat the pirate with the banjo or the gun, so I’ll just shoot his banjo, the bastard. Surprise, surprise, it worked!
</p>2013-05-31T21:22:00-08:00What are the best Point and Click adventures of the last 10 years?
http://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/5977/#When:23:06:39Z<p>Rules: <br />
Must be point-and-click. Sorry, STACKING!<br />
Must have shipped in 2002 or later.<br />
You can list as many as you want.<br />
After we get a list, I’m going to turn it into a poll to find the top five!<br />
<p>I’ll start: Mechanarium. There’s one.
