Two New DoubleFine games announced.

#1 Posted by TurboMan (7503 posts) -

At today's Horizon Conference (new Indy thing during E3), Fez II was announced.

There was also Greg from Double Fine there talking about Broken Age and Massive Challace, but also announced that Indie Fund (People who brought out Antichamber, Monaco, Dear Esther, The Swapper, etc.) is funding two new games from Double Fine. I'm guessing that at least one of those games came from the prototypes made last year, but I'm super happy that one of my favorite developers is making a lot of games.

I'm crossing my fingers that Amnesia Fortnight prototype Black Lake might be turned into a full game. What they were able to pull off with that game visually and conceptually in such a short time span was amazing.

Too bad Brazen is dead in the water.

I WANT BRAZEN DAMMIT.

Yeah, Brazen would have been nice. But let's just be happy that Brad gets to do Massive Chalice and that DoubleFine gets to make games. My guess would be if the next games they make without a publisher are a success that we might still have a chance to see Brazen maybe funded by another kickstarter or they self-fund it.

Double Fine doesn't seem like the sort of company that ever throws anything away. There's always a possibility that Brazen could resurface in some form at a later date.

They should try and release some games before they announce any. Just saying. And no, The Cave don't count to me.

@klei: I get the feeling that nothing is going to become of today's news for quite a while. This feels a lot like Indie Fund just staking their claim and putting ink on paper. Development on the two games involved in this deal probably won't begin for some time.

If it was me funding it I'd have gone for Kaiju Piledriver (though we'd need to wait for Brad to finish drinking from the Massive Chalice)... though I'd love to see Black Lake fleshed out too...

The Cave was totally a Double Fine game though....

More Double Fine games can never be a bad thing.

yeah, because double fine has never released a game.

Also why does the cave not count exactly?

i like double fine, at least they experiment and don't sequel their shit to death

Technically correct but misleading title. Announcing two games in development isn't really announcing those games - as in what they might be or a title. Broken Age is almost done and they have three teams - so there will always be three games in dev or pre-production at any one time.

I meant that I want them to start releasing games. You know, that kickstarter project? It's been what, a year? I want to play it. As for The Cave, it was built by Ron Gilbert and a handful of individuals at Double Fine. It wasn't a totally '' Double Fine '' experience. And it shows when you play.
