It’s that time of year once more, where three infamous Es come together to celebrate their unity. The Electronics Entertainment Expo is underway here in Los Angeles, and if you look carefully enough you might just spot a few Double Fine folks talking about video games. Here are all the live stream appearances we have planned, where you’ll be able to learn more about about the various games we are publishing this and next year. All the times are PST!
6pm - Tim & Jack Black - live in conversation at the Coliseum
The latest Psychonauts 2 project update is live! In it we detail moving from pre-production to full production and what exactly that means, plus a deep dive on Raz’s new outfit, which you can see all up-close-and-personal-like below! Head on over to Fig to read more!
For the uninitiated, Amnesia Fortnight is an internal game jam in which the Double Fine development teams drop what they’re doing and work on prototypes for new games. It was originally designed as a break away from traditionally long development cycles to make something different for a while, but in later years provided prototypes for games such as Costume Quest, Hack n’ Slash and Stacking.
Everyone at Double Fine has the opportunity to pitch a game, and via a Humble Bundle that gives access to older prototypes, YOU can vote on the ones you want to see us make! (You have until April 7th to vote!)
Two projects will be chosen by you, one by the folks here at Double Fine, and one by Tim.
The actual games making begins on April 12th, and the entire thing will be captured by the 2 Player Productions team who will upload a documentary episode every day so you can watch along at home, and get a glimpse into the process of making games
The video above gives you a quick glance at all the potential projects, but to see them all you’ll need to head on over to Humble and check them all out! To vote you’ll need to spend at least $1, but sending more unlocks extra bonus content. This year we will also be supporting Special Effect, a UK based charity that helps people with disabilities to enjoy video games.
This year the Double Fine Action Forums community will be jamming alongside us, and we’ll be mentoring them along the way. They’ve put together their own pitch videos, and you can vote for their project on our forums, where you will also be able to sign up and join in the fun yourself. Join us and make some games!
Amnesia Fortnight is an internal studio game jam in which everyone here pitches a game, and then you get to vote which ones we’ll spend the next two weeks making. The entire thing will be once more documented by 2 Player Productions so you can follow along at home.
The fun begins on 4/4, look out for more info then!
