Amnesia Fortnight 2012 is back on sale in the coolest possible way!


Ever since the Humble Amnesia Fortnight Bundle ended, we’ve wanted to make the whole thing available for purchase again, but we wanted to wait until we had the perfect way to do it. And we finally figured it out: It’s a two-disc Special Edition Box Set containing all five AF2012 prototypes, the whole 2 Player Productions documentary on Blu-ray, the AF2012 original soundtrack, and three bonus prototypes from past Amnesia Fortnights.

We even pestered an artist from each of the five teams to make a custom Collector’s Edition slipcase, which will be signed by the appropriate team lead. They did a bang up job, even under duress! (They’ll probably be fine.)

Does this sound good to you? Obviously yes, it does. So go check it out!

Note that we are currently only taking pre-orders on the boxed edition. However, you’ll get a download code immediately, so you don’t have to wait to start playing! And watching! And listening! Then, soon enough, you’ll receive a ridiculously attractive box in the mail and won’t that be swell?

The Double Fine Action Microblog exists

Have you been following the Double Fine Action Microblog? Perhaps you should! Wait, that was wrong. Definitely you should. Mandatorily you should, in fact. That seems like it might not be a sentence.



It’s a Tumblr, so you can follow it using that if you’re all up in the hippest echelons of the web. But there’s also a regular RSS feed for boring old lame-os like the rest of us.

We’ve got all kinds of fun stuff up on there: Concept art, cool stuff created by fans, and embarrassing overheard Double Fine employee conversations! All that and more! Check it out!

The Cave is coming! The Cave is coming!

Welcome… to The Cave.

...is what you’ll be hearing in mere days, when our newest game The Cave appears on pretty much every gaming platform known to man. Yes, this game is coming January 22 to PlayStation 3 and Wii U, and January 23 to Steam (for PC, Mac, AND Linux!) and Xbox 360! It’s outrageous, really. (If someone tries to tell you there are other gaming platforms than those, they’re probably lying.)

In fact, you can preorder The Cave on Steam right now! Your steam copy will work on PC, Mac, or Linux. So get on it! It also comes with a nifty exclusive Team Fortress 2 hat which, based on the TF2 community’s hat obsession, probably has a dollar value that exceeds the entire budget of The Cave’s development. There’s also a beard and a teddy bear. So don’t miss out.

Still not convinced? I think you’ll be whistling a different tune once you see this irresistible character trailer…

STILL not convinced? Then please, just buy it for our sake. This is Ron Gilbert’s game, and if it sells millions of copies he’s promised to finally stop telling us all what to do.

Middle Manager of Justice Available Now for Free!

They said we couldn’t keep giving games away for free, but what do they know? NOTHING, it turns out.

Yes, Middle Manager of Justice is now available on the iOS App Store, and you can download it for free! (Don’t worry, we released it on purpose this time.)

Middle Manager of Justice is a superhero-themed time management game: Run a busy crime-fighting corporation, hire and train your heroes, and fight to keep scum off the streets. And do it on your iPhone or iPad!

To celebrate, artist Mark Hamer created this MMOJ comic—the first of several! (It’s also free.)

Kinect Party coming FREE on December 18!

image

We hope you’ve been paying attention to Kinect Party, the sequel to Double Fine Happy Action Theater, because it is on the verge of being in your home. It comes out for free on December 18, and it’ll stay free for the rest of the year. So don’t miss it! Tell your friends! After all, you’ll need people to dubstep with.

I know, I know. “Free!?” you’re asking. “That’s can’t be true, not when Kinect Party includes 36 amazing reality-altering activities.” But it’s definitely true, because it was officially reported by Major Nelson. You really have to know your stuff to reach Major in the Microsoft Accurate Information Corps, so you know it’s legit.

So download Kinect Party on Xbox Live Arcade starting December 18. After all, you can’t put a price on family-friendly holiday fun. And even if you could, this is free. What could be better?

I'll still go ahead with my original plan and bring over DFHAT on a USB stick this weekend. Any specifics on how this will work? Will it be for Gold subscribers only? Will it go through that Kinect Central (is that what it's called?) app?"

Amnesia Fortnight is in full swing!

With Amnesia Fortnight voting complete, and the top five ideas chosen, yesterday the whole company divvied up into teams and started making our prototypes!

The winning ideas were these:
Brandon Dillon’s Hack ‘n’ Slash
JP LeBreton’s Spacebase DF-9
Andy Wood’s The White Birch
Lee Petty’s Autonomous
Levi Ryken’s Black Lake

(Originally we were only going to make four, but it turns out we had the staff for an extra team!)

Every day, we’re live streaming team meetings and updates. Keep up with them at the Humble Bundle site, our Twitch.tv channel, or at the top of this post. 2 Player Productions will also be releasing daily highlight videos showing standout moments from the teams each day. The first of those should be out soon! If you’re an Amnesia Fortnight Bundle owner, you’ll be able to find them in your Humble Bundle account page.

Don’t forget—the bundle is still on sale even if you missed voting. It includes two past AF prototypes (Costume Quest and Happy Song), and the new prototypes when they’re complete. Plus, if you beat the average you also get a never-before-seen BRAZEN prototype, led by Brad Muir in a past Amnesia Fortnight! And three extra Brazen download keys so you can play co-op with your friends!

And if you want to dig into art updates and interact with the teams and your fellow video game connoisseurs,  follow our Tumblr and browse the Amnesia Fortnight forums. There’s a forum for each game!

Phew, that’s a lot of updating! We hope you’re excited about AF as we are!

Podcast: 2 Player Productions talks Double Fine Adventure

The three guys behind 2 Player Productions toil ceaselessly as they create Double Fine Adventure!, the documentary telling the story of our upcoming crowdfunded adventure game. But what are they REALLY up to? In the new Double Fine Action Cast, I turn the microphone around to expose the unsavory motives and sinister machinations of this trio of scoundrels. (Actually they’re pretty nice guys.)

If you’re curious what all this DFA stuff is about, this page will help: http://www.doublefine.com/dfa

Be part of the first-ever public Amnesia Fortnight!

Double Fine Productions is proud and not freaked out at all to announce that this year the Amnesia Fortnight Project, its annual prototyping process, will be open to the public, and that there’s no reason to be absolutely, unbearably afraid of this.

This normally-secretive process is named “Amnesia” because the entire team at Double Fine forgets what they’re working on, and “Fortnight” because it lasts for two weeks. During this time the company is divided into smaller teams, and each team must make a game in those two weeks. This has been a very successful formula in the past, so changing it only makes sense. 

For the first three Amnesia Fortnight Projects, the leaders of each team were hand-selected by Double Fine President and CEO, Tim Schafer. This year, the hopeful Project Leaders will be pitching their ideas directly to the public, who will then be able to vote for which games are selected for the prototype phase. Replacing Tim’s judgement and restraint with that of the internet is totally fine and really the same thing after all when you think about it!

After the winning projects are selected there will be two weeks of development. 2 Player Productions will be filming each team just as they have been with the acclaimed Double Fine Adventure documentary. This does not terrify anybody at Double Fine.

“It’s like walking through your high school naked,” said Double Fine’s Director of Product Development Isa Stamos, “It’s mostly just embarrassing the first time. And also, it’s the stuff of dreams!”

When the two weeks are up, the prototypes will be available for download from the Humble Bundle website. These unfinished, rough sketches of games will be handed over to the internet to be thoughtfully judged and respectfully seen in the appropriate context. HA HA HA! That’s my happy laugh and not manic!

When you purchase the bundle you will immediately receive two historical prototypes from past AF projects. Thanks to the generous cooperation of our partners at Autodesk, Firelight, Valve, and RAD Tools. From AF #2, the two week prototype of Costume Quest, and from AF #1, Happy Song—an early prototype that was inspiration for Once Upon a Monster.These are very simple, unfinished mockups of the award-winning games they would someday become, and people’s judgement of them will surely be informed by that…oh god where is my paper bag for breathing?

No matter what happens, it’s okay, because you can chose what you pay, and how much goes to charity.

Everyone from Double Fine was invited to pitch a game. Twenty three of our bravest souls came forward, and you can see all of their pitches and vote for your favorites here: www.humblebundle.com/double-fine

Oh god, it’s starting.
