Double Fine Partners with Nordic Games To Release Retail Titles

Tim Schafer’s Double Fine productions has joined with Nordic Games to re-release a few retail versions of their titles.

The three games we’ll see in North American and European store shelves during the first half of next year will be Costume Quest (2010), Stacking (2011) and Psychonauts (2005).

Founder of Double Fine productions Tim Schafer is happy with the decision and jokes about the re-acquirement of their titles.

“I am pleased that we have regained full control over Costume Quest and Stacking, following a daring and top-secret midnight raid on the Nordic Games headquarters in Vienna,” Mr Schafer said.


Raz from Psychonauts can’t contain his excitement.

Owner and CEO of Nordic Games Lars Wingefors anticipates their new partnership.

“We can’t wait to partner with Double Fine for this upcoming retail launch of three of its most excellent games,” Mr Wingefors said.

“However, I feel compelled to point out that we were happy to transfer distribution rights for Costume Quest and Stacking back to Double Fine in an entirely non-secretive and heist-free manner.”

Nordic Games picked up the rights to Stacking and Costume Quest when THQ filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and liquidated their assets earlier this year.

Psychonauts was originally released at retail in 2005 on Xbox and PS2 but for years has only been accessible through digital downloads.
