Mark Hamer’s Snapshots single-panel comics are now available in book form, as incredibly attractive softcover and hardcover editions which we are selling on our very own store!
Now listen up: We’ve got five hardcover copies of this sweet, sweet compilation to give away to the authors of the best captions of five tragically captionless Snapshots. Heck, if you win one, we’ll even get Mark to sign your copy!
Just send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, December 4, 2013 at 11:59pm Pacific time. Just send your text and indicate which Snapshot it’s for—you don’t need to add the text to the image itself. Our panel of esteemed judges (mainly, you know, Mark) will pick the best caption for each Snapshot.
You can send in captions for any number of the Snapshots, but you can only win once. You may also only submit one caption for each Snapshot. If you submit more than one caption for a single image, we’ll just pick one to be judged at random!
At the top of this post you can see the five blank Snapshots (refer to them as Snapshot 1, Snapshot 2, etc. in your email), as well as a shot of the book itself, and some captioned Snapshots. For more examples of Mark’s caption-writing style, check out the comics on the official site—or put your own twist on it!

The official MASSIVE CHALICE beer is ready! Andy brewed a super dark beer based off of a Scottish “Wee Heavy.” We present to you: MASSIVE WEE! :D!
I’m pretty sure this is the first Double Fine game to have its own official beer! This should probably be one of the responsibilities of every project’s art director.
This badical, mohawk-sporting, lightning-adorned automaton is brand new to the just-released Leap Motion version of Autonomous!
Remember Autonomous? It was one of the prototypes from Amnesia Fortnight 2012—and it has returned, better than before. Lee Petty and his Autonomous team have been adding in support for the uber-futuristic Leap Motion Controller. Now you can assemble your automatons and shoot electricity from your own hand!
And in the process, the team couldn’t stop themselves from tossing in some new content as well. In addition to this stylin’ dude, Autonomous Leap includes:
- Multiple levels! After you’ve met the energy goal for the level, you’ll battle your way to a transmission center and can be teleported to new levels with their own distinct look and drops.
- The Sky Map, a holographic map of the level projected into the sky.
- Hunter-Killstars, ruthless automatons that are periodically transmitted into the world to hunt you down and destroy you.
Bets of all, if you have a Leap Motion Controller for Windows, it’s free! Find out more and download it!
It’s concept art day! Sorry I’ve been slacking, guys, but I hope that this dream team from Psychonauts will make up for that. Look at Mr. Pokeylope; isn’t he adorable? Best friends!

Spacebase DF-9 Alpha 2: “Taste Oddity”, has been released! See the patch notes for a detailed list of changes.
This is our first major monthly update. It adds some significant new features to the game, and also fixes and improves many smaller things. The video above features Chris and me playing through the new build with commentary.
We hope you enjoy this update, and we think it gives an idea of how the game will improve in future alpha updates.
We’ve not yet finalized what Alpha 3 will entail, but you can expect it sometime next month and until then we’ll keep you posted on our progress towards it. Thanks for playing!
It’s the first big post-launch update for Spacebase DF-9! We’re planning on releasing a major update every month, which smaller updates in between.
Tim gave a GDC Next presentation on Broken Age with Lee Petty, Oliver Franzke, and Greg Rice! It’s called “Rethinking a Classic Genre for the Modern Era,” and it’s about rethinking a classic genre for the modern era. Enjoy!
