    If you've been watching Unprofessional Fridays, you know Giant Bomb's love for Gang Beasts, the hilariously weird local multiplayer brawler. Even better? Double Fine is making it part of its "Double Fine Presents" lineup.

    With Double Fine Presents, the studio takes smaller games--Mountain, Escape Goat 2--under its wing, and provides various resources to ensure the games make it to the finish line and people are paying attention to them.

    Besides showing up at PAX Prime next week, Gang Beasts will launch on Early Accesson August 29.

    @szlifier: Thanks a ton, duder!

    Also, how does this affect people who already downloaded the game? Am I going to need to get it through early access in order to get more updates or should I be good to go with the .exe I already have?

    Oh man.

    I've played some GB (that's Gang Beats not Giant Bomb btw) and yeah, a sprinkling of Double Fine pixie dust could go a real long way!

    Does anyone know if resources includes artistic or brainstorming services or is it mainly cash and marketing?

    Why shouldn't he? All of the links to the videos still go to Giantbomb.com... you still gotta have a premium account to watch that stuff, that site just makes it easier to find what you're looking for.

    All the pieces are falling into place for my multiplayer get together. This and Lethal League are both out next week (in a fashion), Mount Your Friends is sure to be a hit and both Crawl and SpeedRunners look super fun.

    I thought this game had actual multi-player. The phrase "local-multiplayer" just killed all the interest I had in this title. This is a shitty trend in gaming, recently. At least, indie games. I'm sorry, but as a grown ass man, I just don't know enough people who play games and who would all get together, come over to my house at the same time for a play-date, and sit around on a couch like children playing a video game. It's hard enough to even think of getting several grown men in different places on the planet to all play the same game on the same gaming platform at the same time on the same day for internet-based co-op/multi-player.

    These games need a new word to define them. Perhaps "dorm-play", because short of being a child or living in a dorm, I don't really see how any meaningful number of people will ever buy and play these games.

    Also, are we all really just going to ignore the fact that there is a mountain simulator mobile game?!
