Discworld TV-movie "HOGFATHER" coming Dec17th

Heads up for all fans
For those that dont know, Sky has made a live action version of
Terry Prachett's "Hogfather".
This is the first live action version of any Discworld noval and looks like it could be quite good.

It will be shown Dec17th on SkyOne. (and no dought will be avaible the next day from the normal sources )






Some clips and "Death interviews" here:

I don't like the voice of Death. Maybe the game was closer to the books.

Hmmmm, After watching the movies I'm getting rather optimistic, and the voice of the DEATH is cool, I don't like Susans hair tough... she looks like Frankensteins bride or sumthin...

Well when reading Deaths voice it does not act like Death... but is Death. Now it's just an act if you know what I mean.

Going to check the serie anyway offcourse.

saw a little bit of the advert on TV. I love Terry Prattchet's books, although I don't really read them, I have quite a few I bought.

Isn't there a DOSBox port for DS?

Apperantly it's even supported by ScummVM's CVS - http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Discworld (or will be in the future)

ScummVM daily snapshot (also http://scummvm.sourceforge.net/downloads.php#SVN) supports additional games, like all of the Sierra quests.

I'm not sure it's compatible with DS though.

If its on ScummVM it will be on the DS one at some point, its part of the main tree and allthough it lags a bit, the guy works very hard at it and its extremely impressive in action.
