Tim Schafer’s Double Fine productions has joined with Nordic Games to re-release 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).
Double Fine is going back to Kickstarter with Massive Chalice, a turn-based strategy game similar to XCOM and Final Fantasy Tactics.
The idea that there are gamers out there who have yet to play the 2005 masterpiece Psychonauts utterly baffles me. When I think or talk about how a game can be done right, Psychonauts always comes to mind. I’ve played, replayed, watched other people play, and had dreams about this game. It won awards, and plenty of people know what it is, but for some reason it seems as though the number of people who have actually PLAYED the game is painfully low.
