You must watch Double Fantastic Journey – Ole Begemann


I do know I’m nearly a decade late to this occasion, however I’m in all probability not the one one, so right here goes.

Double Fantastic Journey was a wildly profitable 2012 Kickstarter mission to crowdfund the event of a point-and-click journey recreation and, crucially, to doc its growth on video. The ensuing recreation Damaged Age was finally launched in two components in 2014 and 2015. Damaged Age is an exquisite recreation and I like to recommend you attempt it. It’s accessible for plenty of platforms and is fairly low cost (10–15 euros/{dollars} or much less). I performed it on the Nintendo Swap, which labored very properly.

However the true gem to me was watching the 12.5-hour documentary on YouTube. A video manufacturing crew adopted the whole three-year growth course of from begin to end. It gives a refreshingly candid and clear perception into “how the sausage is made”, together with delicate subjects equivalent to monetary issues, layoffs, and lengthy work hours. All through all of the ups and downs there’s a beautiful sense of enjoyable and camaraderie among the many crew at Double Fantastic, which made watching the documentary much more pleasing to me than enjoying Damaged Age. You possibly can inform these individuals love working with one another. I extremely advocate looking when you discover this mildly fascinating.

The primary main recreation spoilers don’t come till episode 15, so you possibly can safely watch many of the documentary earlier than enjoying the sport (and that is how the unique Kickstarter backers skilled it). Nonetheless, I feel it’s much more fascinating to play the sport first, or to expertise each side-by-side. My suggestion: watch two or three episodes of the documentary. In case you prefer it, begin enjoying Damaged Age alongside it.
