March 20, 2012

This chat is incomplete. It doesn’t include the very beginning, or the very ending. Hopefully someone will post the entire chat transcript. Then I will delete this one.

*** Ardo [3fe07c29@63.224.124.41] has joined #texmurphy

<f2bnp> this is getting kinda ridiculous...

<jen_tm> hey ardo

<jen_tm> keep the faith

<Ardo> Hey, what's going on here?

<InspBurns> Hi Ardo I've come to check your fine hotel for fire safety

<Baugh88> Anyone else looking forward to the new Ridley Scott movie?

<Ardo> :-)

*** Anne-Lise [54d7304a@cm-84.215.48.74.getinternet.no] has quit [Quit: http://chat.efnet.org  (Ping timeout)]

<jen_tm> we were just talking about the BAK

<Ardo> This is Aaron, by the way. I have no idea when Chris is going to make the announcement, but I do know that this is going to happen (meaning the new game).

<youhaveaf> eapoe, bad connection here

*** Ian07323 [5b552f5c@91.85.47.92] has joined #texmurphy

<Hammerhea> Greetings, Aaron!  Glad you could make it!

<InspBurns> hey Aaron

<eapoe> hi aaron <waves>

<Ardo> I'm doing this from work (don't tell anyone).

<youhaveaf> eapoe, bad connection here

<jen_tm> secret's safe here

<Adele_Ant> Hey, Aaron and yep, secret's safe! :)

<middaydar> Hi there Aaron :)

<Ardo> I've got a few minutes between meetings. If anyone has questions, I'll pass along what I know...

<Baugh88> Thanks for the info Aaron, not a soul will hear from me.

*** RyanP [aefdb128@40.sub-174-253-177.myvzw.com] has joined #texmurphy

<Hammerhea> Is there anything you can share about the novel or gamewhile you're here?  Some of us have been waiting for hours already.  I think some have even made a day of it.

<jen_tm> since 5:30 am

<youhaveaf> slow:(

<FredB> I'm poking in from time to time too :)

<eapoe> so there will be a new tex murphy game? is kickstarter involved?

<Ardo> I can tell you that I'm continuing to work on the novel and I'm really excited about the story. Can't tell you when it will be finished, but it will be as soon as possible.

<youhaveaf> hey aaron^^

<InspBurns> How has 2012 been treating you?

<Ardo> 2012 has been very busy, but good.

<john_> Hey Aaron, any idea where and when the announcement will be made?  We've been waiting with bated breath :)

<Ardo> Not that most of you care, but I just released my first game for EA: Sims 3 Showtime.

<Ardo> I really don't know when Chris will be making the announcement. Just sometime today.

<jen_tm> plum and me want to you put Tex in the new expansion

<Ardo> LOL

<Adele_Ant> You made Sims 3 Showtime?!?! I have that-it's awesome! Thank you!!!!! *shakes hand*

<jen_tm> hide him in the general population

<InspBurns> as an easter egg

<eapoe> grats :>

<Ardo> Thanks, Adele. So glad you like it!

<Ardo> Not much like the Tex games, but I do enjoy working on the Sims.

<jim123> looking into it now!

<john_> Any chance if you could tell us if Kickstarter will be involved with the announcement? ;)

<Ardo> I don't want to jump the gun, but...yup.

<eapoe> yeeeeeeha

<facls> Is the new game going to be FMV?

<FredB> How do you like working for EA then? :)

<john_> I am BEYOND elated!!!!

*** plumgas [79dabee3@CPE-121-218-190-227.lnse4.cht.bigpond.net.au] has joined #texmurphy

<Ardo> I love working for EA.

<plumgas> aaron

<Ardo> Tex games without FMV? Ridiculous!

<marinedal> Chris is going to make his announcement and we'll be all "Yeah dude, Aaron just told us all that." ;)

<facls> Good to know! :)

<Ardo> lol

<JerryDan-> w00t!

<Baugh88> Joy!

<middaydar> woo hoo!!!

<jim123> I like EA, good spread, the iPad ports always look good too

<jen_tm> come on he can all act surpised lol

<eapoe> lol we have to look err surprised

<jen_tm> *we

<FredB> I've been working as a game designer for some months now, I can understand how you love the job :)

<plumgas> we want a tex sim

<Adele_Ant> Someone suggested putting Tex in The Sims....that has given me an idea. I'm pretty good at making Sims. LOL.

<john_> Tex Murphy on the iPad…. one can only dream :)

<JerryDan-> What's with Showtime?

<f2bnp> Aaron is just trolling us :P

<Ardo> LOL!

<InspBurns> Can you tell us what percentage of the game has already been worked on? End of the year seems kind of rushed.

*** youhaveaf [5438d0f0@dslb-084-056-208-240.pools.arcor-ip.net] has quit [Quit: http://chat.efnet.org  (Ping timeout)]

<Ian07323> Should say hi - 'hi' - Ian from UK - a lurker and occasional poster on the message board for what feels lke 30 years.  Pretty excited right now. :-)

<plumgas> damm in the shower I missed out on something

<JerryDan-> I mean, is it a theater sim or what?

<Ardo> The game will be released when it's ready and a lot of that depends on how much money Chris has to work with...

<Ardo> We just chatted about that last week...

<plumgas> is it kickstarter

<middaydar> How much money will I have to donate to get a fedora?  lol

<john_> The sooner you can get it on Kickstarter, the sooner I can funnel my paycheck into the project :0

*** jen_tm is now known as jen_away

<Adele_Ant> I'm poor and can't afford much, but I hope every little helps! ^_^

*** youhaveaf [5438d0f0@dslb-084-056-208-240.pools.arcor-ip.net] has joined #texmurphy

<Ardo> If he has plenty of money, it will go into making a bigger, better game, which would take longer to produce.

<plumgas> maybe a dvd that works....lol

<Hammerhea> What is your minimum estimated goal?

<Ian07323> lol @plumgas!

<Ardo> Hey Fred - congrats on the game design gig. It beats digging ditches.

<john_> What are the platforms you're currently aiming for?

<Frogacuda> Wait, something happned?

<JerryDan-> Let's save some for CJ!

<JerryDan-> :-)

<Frogacuda> What'd I miss?

<FredB> Thanks. And I've dug a ditch before, haha! You ain't kidding! :)

<litz> don't give john_ MAC OS hehe

<Ardo> I can't really give any details. This is Chris's operation. I just wanted to let you know I'm excited and hoping you guys don't have to wait too much longer!

*** Baugh88 left #texmurphy []

*** Baugh88 [4028d259@64.40.210.89] has joined #texmurphy

<Adele_Ant> Aw thank you, Aaron! :) It's so kind of you to come on and talk to us and keep our spirits up. :)

<facls> Well Aaron, here's a fan from Brazil. I'll definitely back this project, played Pandora a lot back in the day.

<john_> WOO HOO!!!!

<facls> well, gotta go... great news!

<middaydar> @plumgas: if I'm not mistaken, he confirmed it's a kickstarter project

<Frogacuda> I bet Chris is waiting for the Kickstarter to go live, then. That makes sense

*** Hammerhea left #texmurphy []

*** facls left #texmurphy []

<middaydar> and @frogacuda: Aaron scoffed at Tex without FMV :)

*** Baugh88 [4028d259@64.40.210.89] has quit [Client Quit]

<middaydar> so that's exciting!

<InspBurns> :)

<plumgas> I was thinking maybe he is having problems setting it up which then convinced me jen was right

*** Baugh88 [4028d259@64.40.210.89] has joined #texmurphy

<Baugh88> I have a happy helmet on at the moment.

<marinedal> That sounds so wrong... :P

<john_> We know Kickstarter is involved.  That's about it.

<Frogacuda> Really, when you add it all up we kind of know everything.

<FredB> Except the details ;)

<john_> Frogacuda: Untrue.  We still don't know where/when we can start funneling money into this :)

<Frogacuda> New Tex game, developed by Big Finish, coming out in 2012, or maybe later if there's a lot of money involved, and at least partially funded by a kickstarter. Also darker/grittier...

*** tidalwave [tidalwave@170-201.82-139.bia.tkbb.net.pl] has joined #texmurphy

<middaydar> darker/grittier?

<Frogacuda> That's what he said in GamesTM, yeah

<john_> URL?

<Anne-Lise> Is it possible to get a transcript from what Aaron posted for those of us careless enough not to be logged in at that exact moment?

<Frogacuda> It's a print magazine, no url

<middaydar> I have the whole chat; I haven't logged off in hours

<JerryDan> :(

<NetRoam> so - now I'm on via mIRC so hopefully the connection will be more stable :)

<Anne-Lise> It's been a long day waiting for the news

<BringTexB> Anyone know if the Tex games were extra popular in Scandinavia?

<NetRoam> indeed it has - and it seems I haven't missed out on much while I was away at a hockey game, huh?

<BringTexB> Hockey in Denmark!?! lol

<NetRoam> well - we're still in the A-league although we will never be anywhere close to winning the world championships though

<NetRoam> hey Jen :)

<Baugh88> He's the whole reason I will play adventure games instead of sticking to just strategy and fps.

<BringTexB> Sorry, NetRoam, I just don't think about hockey when I hear "Denmark"

<marinedal> Sure Jen

<BringTexB> When I hear "Denmark" I think Lego. And Copenhagen. And Carlsberg.

<jen_tm> here's ,my last piece before it vanished...... Has someone saved the intervention on the chat, to post in on the forum? <dkbtf> it* <john_> Hmmm…. ChrisMars has awoken, but we have yet to hear anything :)

<NetRoam> and you're from Sweden, right?

<BringTexB> Indeed I am.

*** youhaveaf [5438d0f0@dslb-084-056-208-240.pools.arcor-ip.net] has quit [Client Quit]

<NetRoam> right yeah - you're way better at hockey than we are :)

<BringTexB> You think Volvo. And Stockholm... lol

*** mop [6de81a5d@109.232.26.93] has joined #texmurphy

<NetRoam> Saab too - hehe

<FredB> If we can get someone from Finland and Iceland in here, we'll have the entire North represented :)

<BringTexB> Yes, that would be nice.

<middaydar> @jen - I have it, but the consensus is to wait until after Chris makes his announcement

<NetRoam> funny though that we Danes often think of Swedes as drunken Swedes coming to Denmark to buy beer with more percentage in them :-)

<john_> jen_tm: You didn't miss anything after that.

<jen_tm> oh ok cool beans

<BringTexB> yes, NetRoam... you get one or two of those crazy Swedes... Not me though. I'm not one of them.

<JerryDan> The Faroes?

<JerryDan> ;)

<Anne-Lise> And Norwegians going anywhere to get cheaper beer

<FredB> Pfff... beer

*** jen_tm is now known as jen_afk

<NetRoam> BringTexB: I'm not one of those Danes who think like that. I happen to like Sweden and has been there a lot

<BringTexB> Yes, Anne-Lise, everything is very expensive in Norway, right`?

*** RyanP [4386633d@67-134-99-61.dia.static.qwest.net] has joined #texmurphy

<Anne-Lise> Beer is :-)

<RyanP> Just got home from work. I miss anything?

<NetRoam> ah yeah - Norway - the place where everything is expensive (so I've heard) ... I heard a simple Margarita pizza costs 150 NOK - is that right?

<NetRoam> whoa

<BringTexB> ok, plum, work... or "work"?

<plumgas> bit pissed off when I woke & no tex

<freepizza> You should demand an apology from Chris

<freepizza> And a credit in the game

<freepizza> For your sacrifice

<InspBurns> No Kickstarter discounts

<plumgas> drove to my office now I can keep an eye out

<NetRoam> oh hell yeah - we should all get credit in the game for waiting this long :)

<freepizza> UTM Credit

<plumgas> jen still here

<freepizza> "For the fans that just wouldn't let it die"

<NetRoam> if they for whatever reason start collecting names of people "waiting in line" - be sure to drop mine to them too, okay? :-)

<NetRoam> gone silent again?

<Frogacuda> any news yet?

<InspBurns> next one who speaks gets eliminated

<NetRoam> that'll be me then - I'm off ... take care everybody and thanks for the chat :-)
