Not sure if anyone posted about this here already, but a YouTube channel called arhn.eu has uploaded a video taking a look at Dink's history. It's mostly in Polish, but includes English interviews with Seth and Redink. First goes from the history of Seth's games to how he got to making Dink, to D-Mods and finally to "Crazy Old Tim Plays All The D-Mods". Includes some interesting info about the original game, including sketches (some of which I don't think we've seen before) and an old TV clip about Dink that I remember had a longer, full version of it floating around TDN to download at one point, but not sure if anymore. Do we still have any Polish Dinkers around to possibly provide English subtitles for the Polish parts?

On a slightly more off-topic note, when Seth was talking about the making of the graphics for Dink, I never realised how much Justin's contribution to the visual style of Dink has probably helped the game's success and longevity over the years. The look of the game is so different from any other RPG then or since, and definitely one of the things that pulled me (and I'm sure many others) into it. Looking back, so happy Seth managed to find a way to make it work and didn't end up changing the art-style.

Hi, thanks for sharing my little documentary. I wanted to wait with posting it until I get the English version ready.

If you would like to watch the video in a more understandable format, here's the link to the broken English rendition of "Dink Smallwood: Two decades of duck decapitation".

And once more, thanks to Seth and redink1 for making this feature possible!

Nice video, some bits that I got to understand are amusing and also summarizes previous interviews with seth and people from tdn in a graphical way (context of development, seth's experience in the process, the essence and identity of the game, the maintenance of tdn over the years, cotpad)
