Sad Space Party: Spacebase DF-9 Leaves Early Access

A game's launch is usually such a happy affair, all streamers and balloons and fruit punch and jelly and ice cream and cartwheeling clowns, but it's a little bittersweet for Spacebase DF-9. It's not the game Double Fine wanted it to be, nor the game advertised to Early Access purchasers. DF scaled plans down last month as announced they couldn't afford to keep making the…

Tim Schafer On The End Of Spacebase DF-9’s Development

Last week Double Fine announced that Spacebase DF-9 development was coming to an end. The issue was that hundreds of features that had previously been listed as "maybe possibly" coming to the game were no longer to going to be delivered, replaced instead with the release of the game's LUA codebase so the community could add content themselves. People are understandably peeved. Tim Schafer has…

Stardystopia: Thoughts On Doublefine’s Spacebase DF-9

In Spacebase, no-one can hear you scream 'but it's only an alpha.' Spacebase is pre-beta. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly pre-beta it is. Spacebase: the unfinal build. My god, it's full of missing features. They should've sent a QA guy. So alpha. So alpha... I had no idea. I've been playing Doublefine's new strategy-management game Spacebase DF-9, which launched on Steam's…

Reveal: Double Fine’s Sci-Fi Dwarf Fortress, Spacebase DF-9

Double Fine does not, cannot, will not stop. Not for me, not for you, not for Death (which is why we'll probably never see another Grim Fandango). Recently, we've seen the international house of chuckles both branch out from and return to its roots in Massive Chalice and Broken Age, respectively, but let's not forget about Amnesia Fortnight. Last year, Tim Schafer and co teamed…
