  1. I don't want to sound like a cold-hearted jerk, or just a blind fan boy who thinks Tim can do no wrong, but his words weren't personal (not even the "jerk" one -- although I can appreciate that must have stung for you) because simply: He doesn't know you. He was just upset by something that was triggering for him. It seems he felt like you were saying he didn't deserve to have his name with the title... Which undoubtedly reminded him of the executives he fought back in the day -- ones who probably literally told him he didn't deserve it. And being able to take creative ownership of his work obviously means a huge deal to him as he risked everything he had to set up his own company to do just that. Plus it's easy to think of people like Tim having thicker skin than the rest of us. He's got all the power, right? Hundreds of thousands of fans, etc. Famous. Successful. Celebrity friends. Interviewed all the time. But you tend to find that these people are just as insecure and touchy as the rest of us -- if not more so. For example, you often hear comedians, even from the hugely successful ones, talk about how one audience member can upset them. They'll have thousands of people laughing... and they will laser in on the one person who isn't. In their heads they'll be wondering, "What's wrong with that guy??" It seems it's human nature to let that one voice upset us, even when everyone else is saying we're great. So yes, technically, he called you a jerk. However: 1. You're not a jerk. And 2. Tim was just being insecure and touchy... like all humans can be. I'd try not to take his reaction personally and try to cut him a little slack: From his point of view, you were a person trying to take his achievements away from him.

  2. I guess you're absolutely right. Obviously I was just as touchy back then, or it wouldn't have bothered me that much. But yeah, that's literally in the past, and I guess it just came back up, once I saw my posters used in the Double Fine book (which is a pet peeve of mine, as you probably know by now).

  3. Yesterday I posted this: We'll see if he reacts to that.

  4. Well, I suppose those would be the ones Tim cares about!

  5. That post comes across as a joke to me. He’s both pointing out the beautiful versions with names removed while also humorously lamenting that they had to convince people to put their names on there. There might be more to it beyond that post I’m unaware of, but if that’s all we’re talking about I really wouldn’t take it seriously.

  6. Two bits of news: firstly, the Tim/Manny fan art that I posted up there was included in the Double Fine 20 Years book, which I was very happy about! Secondly, this is only tenuously Mojo-adjacent, but I do think it's something Mojo Forum readers will be interested in: Lair Of The Clockwork God is getting a Limited Run physical release for Switch and PS4! LOTCG is a game I co-designed, an adventure-platformer and the third game in the Dan & Ben adventure game series. The games regularly pay homage (or steal from) the old Lucasarts adventures, and the Collector's Edition reflects that: A grail-diary-style journal full of lore and jokes and lovely art; posters, postcards and a pin with a bunch of exclusive art; physical copy of the amazing soundtrack; physical edition of the game in a trendy modern (reversible) cover and with a stupidly overwritten manual; all bundled up in a nice retro Big Box! We put a ridiculous amount of work into this, I'm really hoping it does well. Check it out here (and please share)! https://limitedrungames.com/collections/lair-of-the-clockwork-god

  7. I guess I was bit a slow. Literally every single thing is sold out.
