Brutal Legend was a big dissapointment.  Hopefully this will make up for it! 
 
And YES Psychonauts 2

I am really digging the artstyle, this will most likely be a day one buy.

Brutal Legend was a good game, it would have been better if they actually sold it as an RTS, WHICH IT IS!

Cool stuff, I think Double Fine will do much better with stuff like this through the online distribution network and a lower more attractive price!

Looks cute, ill keep my eyes on it.

Looks interesting. I have faith in Double Fine.

Seriously, I will never doubt Double-Fine. Even Brutal Legend was a pretty good console RTS.

I'm glad that Double Fine is doing more games now. I thought they were pretty much dead after Psychonauts. Seems like they're picking up steam now.

Sweet. Though I'd feel this kind of game would fit better with a MOTHER-style narrative. I don't see Double Fine going that route.

Yup, exactly. They've fucked up by not releasing an MP demo, maybe that would steady a fanbase. I hope someone rips off the concept from them, seeing that was the first take on a TPP RTS since Sacrifice. Yes, that was 10 years - I can't even stress that enough.

People like you are exactly the reason why Bobby Kotick gets away with fucking as all in the ass.

Well maybe if Brutal Legend didn't suck, it would have sold...

Going for the real kids since the kids of old are not backing the company anymore.

This game looks ridiculously good to me, can't wait to see more.

I guess I'm a little disappointed that it's not Psychonauts 2, but I'll let that go for a moment because this looks pretty sweet.

#67 Posted by the_mystical_ninja (12 posts) -

Sounds awesome. a 20 hour quest would be fantastic :D

#68 Posted by Hostile (148 posts) -

It already looks better than Brutal Legend.

Anybody getting Mr. Ben from this ( British people anyway)

This is really the smartest direction Double Fine/Tim Schafer can take.  In the past, his games have been applauded for their scripts and unique setting, but criticized for game play.  By making their games smaller and cheaper like this, I believe people will be more willing to forgive any short comings they experience.  I can't wait to see the other three projects they have in the works.

I would love this idea even more if it went all South Park "good times with weapons" and have crazy violence with kids. Would be hilarious.

#73 Posted by s3phiroth2006 (1 posts) -

Let see what happens, the last game wasn't good. IMHO

I think it's almost expected that downloadable games are a little bit more limited in terms of gameplay. But not in a bad way. Schafers style could fit really well with those type of games. I hope he does well.

This looks freakin awesome!

"That Anime episode of South Park: The Game"
 
not that that's a bad thing. That was an awesome episode of south park.

#80 Posted by logson (521 posts) -

I'm glad to see Double Fine go downloadable, though it's unfortunate that they're moving to that front out of necessity. 
I was first hoping for something a little more Castle Crashers-y, but this seems alright too.

This better not turn out to be an urban planning simulator midway through the game. 
 
Fool me once...

I hope this works out well for Double Fine. I don't think they can stay afloat with just the goodwill of a small group of gamers.

I like the way the neighborhood part looks more than the imagination part. 

#84 Posted by Psykhophear (939 posts) -
Brutal Legend would've sold a lot better if it was ported to the PC as well. I still don't understand why Tim Schafer, one of the grand daddies of PC games, didn't make a PC version. I didn't buy the console versions thinking that Double Fine would port it to the PC months later as a Special Edition or something but nope, it didn't happen. Sad.

Double Fine games = imagination running wild. This seems to fit their M.O. nicely. Day One!

#86 Posted by Bloodgraiv3 (2712 posts) -

Anything by Double Fine for me is Day 1.
