PlayStation Access chat to Tim about Broken Age

Tim, Greg and Ray are over in Denmark at the moment, giving talks at the Animation Workshop, and getting haircuts in weird retro game themed hairdressers.

Before that they were in the UK though, where our friends at Media Molecule very generously let us use their studio, and its fancy pink couches, to meet some members of the European press. In the video below, Tim speaks with Hollie from PlayStation Access to chat about Broken Age making its debut on the PlayStation platforms, and about a weird tattoo we kinda wish was actually going to happen.

Costume Quest 2: EU release date, Sackboy costumes for one and all!

Whoops! In their efforts to save the future from Dr Orel White and his plan to outlaw Halloween, it seems that Wren and Reynold have taken a wrong turn and ended up in the wrong season… Lock up your leftover Easter Eggs folks, it’s surprise Halloween!

Our spooky, time-traversing RPG Costume Quest 2 is finally getting released in Europe on PS4 TOMORROW, and with it comes a free sack-cellent costume add-on, which is available for PlayStation fans around the world…

There he is, my old pal Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet, the little chap with a million costumes of his own, now available as a costume for Trick or Treaters everywhere!
To unlock Sackboy players must seek out four hidden costume pieces before they can don their burlap creation, and unleash his ‘LittleBigBeatdown’ on any unfortunate Grubbins who try to stand in his way.

Sackboy will be on the worldwide PlayStation stores this week as a free add-on for PS3 and PS4, and Costume Quest 2 for PS4 will be available in Europe when the stores update, starting with tomorrow in the UK.

Double Fine Adventure: Episodes 14 & 15

Oh my word what have we here, two episodes of the Double Fine Adventure! These things are coming out on such a speedy schedule that I totally failed to share one of them with you in a timely manner, for which you have my apologies.

Without any further delay, please allow me to present Episode 14 “I think this is a winner” in which Tim reads through the mock review feedback from Broken Age and digs out the old marketing research for the “unoriginal, childish, and overly complex” Psychonauts.

Also Episode 15 “Evergreen Games”  in which Act 1 is launched, embargoes are broken, the team worry about sales figures, and the art jamming for Act 2 begins!

Interview with Nick and Max Folkman, writers for MASSIVE CHALICE

Ignite Gaming (the self proclaimed greatest gaming blog of Chicago) has posted an interview with our friends Nick and Max, two fine fellows we hired to work on the story for MASSIVE CHALICE.

Here they are, look how fine they are. And Two of them? Double Fine.

What was your favorite part of the process? What was the most difficult?
Nick: The world building. It’s stressful because barely anything has been set in stone and there’s a deadline constantly over you, but it’s so much fun when you’re just bouncing ideas back and forth about stuff: like what the ending can be, how to tie in the themes, why is that Chalice so ridiculously huge, and so on. The most difficult thing… Names. Oh my god there were so many meetings about the names for the enemies, regions, and classes that we’d even bring in the whole team at some points so we could all brainstorm at the same time.

Read more of their wise words over here.

Double Fine Adventure: Episode 12 “A whole different game experience”

We’re airing new episodes of the Double Fine Adventure! every day beginning with a “T” leading up to launch, and since today is Thursday, a new episode has made itself cosy in our youtube playlist.

This episode originally aired for DFA backers at the tail end of 2013, as the script for Act 1 was in good enough shape to start putting together a vocal cast and recording some dialogue, and the team prepared for PAX Prime. Watch in wonder as the characters come to life through the stellar work of the casting director and her all star vocal cast, and witness Jack Black punching Tim right in the mouth, kapow!

You’ve been Spaffed!

Dear beloved community!

We have great news! And the name of the news is James “Spaff” Spafford. Please join me in welcoming him to Double Fine as our new Community Manager!

That’s right, he is our gift to you, and we will now throw him into the lions pit of your affections! Please treat him well. Give him your hugs and fond salutations. Or else he might ban you.

Ha ha, of course he won’t do that*. He is your friend! He knows what it’s like to be a member of the Double Fine community, because he was one of the Double Fine community’s first members!

Long before Double Fine Productions became the powerful, multinational media conglomerate it is today, we were just another a new, unproven developer. We hadn’t produced a single game yet. We were working in an unheated warehouse crawling with rats and occasionally overflowing with backed up sewage.** We were filthy and unlovable. But Spaff came to visit us (along with some hairy kid we assume was his butler) and he brought me a jar of Marmite. I had nothing to offer him in return, so I had no choice, but to offer him a job. We set his start date 14 years in the future, to make sure that I had time to figure out the paperwork, and so he could complete his journey into manhood.***

It’s all documented here, in this amazing snapshot of a simpler time—a time of soul patches and eyebrow piercings, when people didn’t know the word “selfie.” 

We haven’t had a community manager in a while and I know that some members of our community have gone feral or started barbaric clans to rule the wastelands of our forums. But that time is over. Spaff is diving right in there, pulling weeds, scaring away dust mites, driving a semi truck loaded with guzzoline right through your roadblocks, and into your hearts.

You have been warned: A very friendly Englishman has been unleashed upon you! Say hi to him here or on Twitter @thespaff!

Welcome, Spaff!

-Tim

* He might do that.
** Not a joke.
*** This part is less true than the other parts.

The Double Fine Adventure Documentary Goes Public!

The collaboration between 2 Player Productions and Double Fine Productions that launched a historic Kickstarter campaign is nearing its conclusion! In anticipation of the release of Act 2 of Broken Age, episodes of The Double Fine Adventure! will be released to Youtube every Tuesday and Thursday starting today - March 3rd.

A three-year journey spanning eighteen (and counting!) episodes, The Double Fine Adventure! chronicles the creation of Broken Age from a germ of an idea in Tim Schafer’s notebook, to a finished game and beyond.  Along the way, the team confronts production delays, internal strife, and outside controversy in what is the most honest, in-depth look at video game development ever created. Previously exclusive to Double Fine’s Kickstarter backers, everyone can now share in the passion, humor, and heartbreak of this landmark documentary series… for free!

The documentary is also fully viewable via online distribution platform VHX.com. It is currently available at an Early Bird price which gives viewers immediate access to the whole series in 1080p, plus a host of bonus features which will become available once the series is complete. Features coming at completion of the series include closed captions, removal of spoiler blurs, deleted scenes, commentary tracks, and bonus videos. The Double Fine Adventure! is available for purchase here! Early Bird pricing will end on the day Act 2 of Broken Age is released. After that, the price of the documentary will increase to $15 for the basic series and $20 for the series and bonus features.

The first three episodes of the documentary are up to watch on YouTube today. After that, new episodes will be air every Tuesday and Thursday in 720p. Major Broken Age story points are blurred or obscured to allow for spoiler-free viewing!
