I think it was taken down once or before BFG edition was released.

Let's not forget the numerous game walkthrough websites which have the code written down on it.

I know. Where are we gonna order our Martian Buddy L'il Baklava Ovens now? Haven't you ever just stopped and thought to yourself, "man I could really go for some scrumptious baklava"?

Who's your buddy? MARTIAN BUDDY!

I used to play with two computers, one to play the game and the other with Martian Buddy. Let's make an immerse game then have people go to a website outside of the game.

Yeah it was just a single page with the Martian Buddy logo and the code for the storage lockers.

I'm betting he's still around somewhere :D

http://tfuture.org/media/martianbuddy_thumb.png

From what I see on archive.org, the site was taken down on november 2012.

Yeah, it was pretty stupid esp. at a time when people were unlikely to have an Internet enabled phone or portable device next to them. I never checked the website because fuck alt-tabbing.

I didn't mind it so much, but why didn't they just create a pseudo website for the guis? Just three or four options where one of them is martianbuddy.com. This would send you hunting for computers in the level rather than being pulled out of the experience.

lol - some games it was like Russian resolute, after pressing it and then wanting to go back would the game display the picture or just a blank screen, would the sound jam, would the mouse curser get stuck, would it blue screen the computer or just freeze up....who knew!

It also greatly depended on computer hardware, what one may be able to do may be disastrous for another.

Should always make sure you save before trying such a thing.....thats if you can....Bioshock Infinite!

Sorry going off topic a moment, whats up with the save system on that game! Just got it in Steam Sales and OMG the save system is just terrible, basically it uses check points only and they are very very very far apart! I often play for a quick 20 maybe 30 min session then quit. When I load back up I have lost most of that progress, no quick saves in about 35 to 40 mins a time. I have played hours and hours of this game and getting bored as I have to re-play large parts over and over and actually I'm only 2 hours in.....sorry but I do have a life and don't plan to play for hours at a time......its totally ruined the otherwise pretty decent game so far.

One level I played 3 times getting a little further each time before having to quit. My last save point was just 2 seconds around the corner from when I last quit the last time.....frustrating!

Na, I'm pretty sure its because of console that the save system is messed up in the first place. Its exactly the same on console, don't see how that would make a difference apart from longer loading times, lower resolutions and less sharp textures :(

Anyway....
