So I’m playing Pinesquest and I have already completed the main game. I know how to use the Bracelet as well.

Now, I definitely noticed Mermando. He wasn’t hard to miss.

But Dipper #4?

I watched the animation again, this time from the front, and sure enough.

Pretty sure that isn’t the Dipper with the number four on his hat though, if you catch my drift.

Have some Reverse Pines doodleness. The right is my Reverse Dreamscapers episode thing (Nightmarechasers) 

The left is me making a bunch of headcannons to throw at the Reverse Falls tag (whatever its called.) 

And everyone go play PinesQuest if you like Zelda. Holy nostalgiaisms. 

I didn’t hide any Bills this time. Next time for sure.  

I never felt so empty and depressed in a long time. frick

Note to self: nEVER EAt sweets as your main breakfast. It will destroy you. Don’t fkking touch me aghhg

also Gravity Falls is ending how about that (I’m not actually sad about that. I mean, it wasn’t really a secret that it’s supposed to have 2 seasons??) Anyway I’m glad GF is ending when the creator wants it to end. Sad that it’s ending but happy that GF happened. But hey just because the series has ended that doesn’t mean the fandom has as well. 

Anyway, I don’t feel like eating lunch because Idunno my whole appetite is destroyed now. haha 

life goes on

Okay, can we talk for a second about the Gravity Falls games? In particular Rumble’s Revenge and Pinesquest as they were at least in part written by the same folks what write the show. Which is great. If my computer wasn’t so laggy I’d probably play them more.

Also after the first boss of Rumble’s Revenge the twins compliment each other (depending on who you’re playing) and it is the cutest thing. Especially Dipper’s line I flippin’ love Dipper’s line.

The Bill Cipher Wheel

I know this isn’t a Shipping Corner post, but I’d like to talk about the Bill Cipher Wheel.

So far, we know these:

Pine Tree: Dipper Pines

Shooting Star: Mabel Pines

Question Mark: Soos Ramirez

Claw: Stanley Pines

Star With Eye: Gideon Gleeful

Stitched Heart: Robbie Valentino


The rest is a bit confusing, but here’s what I think:

6-Fingered Hand: Stanford Pines

Ice Bag: Wendy? (She’s important and all that character development can’t go to waste) or maybe Blendin? (We saw him escape while the entire time force was destroyed)

Glasses: Old Man McGucket? (This could also be Stanford Pines, but the 6-Fingered Hand can only mean the author, so probably not)


Llama: Pacifica Northwest (In the background of a portrait, we saw a llama. And if you think about it, doesn’t Pacifica look like a llama? (I never noticed it until I really looked XD)


The Glasses don’t make sense so far, but I really hope Pacifica is apart of this wheel. If they waste such good character development, I’ll be peeved. 

And what does the wheel mean anyway? They represent the people needed to ultimately defeat Bill Cipher? That’ll be really fricking cool when it happens.

-_- Thanks for the long wait, Alex Hirsh! 

November 23 = Weirdmageddon Part 2


Update: Maybe the glasses actually do represent Stanford Pines, and the 6-Fingered Hand represents a journal? We know that the journals were destroyed by Bill, but maybe one will make a reappearance? If you remember, Stan photocopied the 3rd Journal before he gave it back to Dipper.

PQ2D Update #9: Clever Title About Custom User Interfaces

Hot Belgian waffles! PQ2D now has its own unique UI! Along with…

  • An opening cutscene!
  • A battle tutorial where you fight some gnomes and recruit Mabel to your party!
  • 4 working maps!
  • Music and sound effects for both the overworld and battles!

This makes the first dungeon about 1/3rd complete (6 more maps and a boss fight are needed to finish it), meaning the demo is currently about 11% complete. Thanks to obtaining the raw assets from the original PinesQuest, things are going a lot faster than I originally anticipated! At this rate the demo may even be ready before summer, but I don’t want to count my pterodactyls before they hatch. Fingers crossed though!

Also beginning possibly as soon as next week, we will be starting live PQ2D development streams on Twitch.tv! In case you’re wondering “What’s a development stream?”, it’s a live stream where you actually get to watch us work on the game! The exact time and schedule for these streams are still up in the air, but expect them to be decided and announced very soon!

Stay weird, Fallers!
