Double Fine at PAX 2015

PAX Prime is upon us! We’ll be there in our usual spot, and we’re very much looking forward to seeing you all once again! As usual, we have lots of fun things for Double Fans to get involved with….

Yoo-hoo, Mr Tentacle guy…

Collect both of these special edition Day of the Tentacle posters, and get them signed by Tim!

Green Tentacle will be available at the PlayStation booth Friday 2pm and Sunday 2pm
Purple Tentacle will be available from our booth Saturday 2pm and Sunday 11:30am.

Double Fine Shop

Along with our official Pinny Arcade pins (see the news story before this one) we’ll be bringing a whole host of merchandise to the show with us - art books, vinyls, figurines, shirts etc. We’ll have quite a few new items this year, including some new Two Headed Baby shirts, and shirts from our new unannounced game, exciting!


Double Fine Presents

Come by the booth to play two of our Double Fine Presents games, and chat to their creators.
Stare into the many monster faces of Gnog, and enter into a Gang Beasts Tournament, with some new never-seen-before content.

A Most Excellent Fan Meetup!

Sunday night is party night, and you’re all invited!
We’ll be showing off our new game there live, plus our Double Fine presents games will be playable on the big screen - Get cerebral with colourful, monster puzzler Gnog and join an 8 player free-for-all Gang Beasts showdown, whilst one of the game’s composers, Doseone, plays some live music!

Check out the flier below, join the Facebook event page, and see you there!

"Love those tentacle posters! There's no way I can get to PAX but I hope it goes well for you all! Anyway, good news about more stuff coming into the shop soon, I'll keep an eye out for DOTT stuff, any whatever this new game may be. Looking forward to finding out more about that!"

"I'm freaking out. I need a green tentacle poster signed by Tim Schafer so bad. I have no idea what to do except to sell my macbook for a ticket to PAX. Can I please give you any amount of money for this poster. Which is preferably an amount less than my macbook cost."

PAX Prime: Pinny Arcade!

Who’s coming to PAX Prime this year? We’re just under two weeks away from the show, which means we’re in full organisational mode, which mainly involves panicking about things we might have forgotten to do.

As always we’ll have a booth at the show, and will have games to play, be hosting poster singings, some great new merch, and a fan meet on the Sunday night. We’ll update with more info on all of that stuff soon, for now though we wanted to show you these!

For the dual anniversaries of Psychonauts and Doublefine this year, we’ve made these official Pinny Arcade pins, which will be available exclusively at our booth!

We’ll announce and detail all of the things we’re up to over the course of this and next week, so stay tuned folks.

Double Fine Adventure Episode 20 “We did our job!”

The final episode of the Double Fine Adventure documentary is here. Episode 20 “We did our job!” is a tear-jerking emotional ride, the end of a crazy three year journey featuring the launch of Broken Age, some deep reflections, and the arrival of a pretty darn attractive community manager.

The entire DFA documentary is now available for free on youtube, coming in at a mighty 12 hours. Don’t let that beefy length (oo-err) put you off watching though, we think it’s worth your time, and if you don’t believe us maybe you’ll believe one of these fine games industry dignitaries

“3 years & 20 episodes later, @2PProductions’s documentary on the making of BROKEN AGE is the most in-depth & honest look at making a game”.
- Josh Scherr, Naughty Dog

“The documentary for Double Fine Adventure is the best record of game dev ever put on screen”.
- George Broussard, Duke Nukem 3D

“All games are terrible until about 5 minutes before they’re finished and working on them is scary, grueling, frustrating and then scary again. And heartbreaking. This is the only account of making a game that actually captures that experience”.
- Erik Wolpaw, Portal

Check out the full documentary, over on our youtube channel!

"I'm sad because I was hoping that somehow it would go on forever. But deadlines must be met, games must be shipped, and eventually we wrap up our projects to move on. I really hope to see more documentaries by Double Fine and 2 Player Productions in the future. Fantastic work."

Broken Age is now available with Russian Subtitles

A while ago we announced that we were working on a Russian translation of Broken Age for the Windows, OSX and Linux versions of the game.

We’re happy to tell you that those translations, both the subtitles and in-game textures, are live right now on Steam and the update will filter through to the other stores over the next few days.

Спасибо, и наслаждайтесь игрой!

"This is good news for people in Russia as they are having games in their own language now. Playing games become easy and enjoyable if you understand it completely and all the instructions in your own language will make it easy for you. Being student of graduation in Russia I am looking for someone to write essay for me in Russian language so that I could complete my educational tasks and submit them to my institute."

We’ve regained the rights to Iron Brigade, and fixed Steam matchmaking

San Francisco - May 26, 2015 - Double Fine Productions, developer and publisher of the successfully-crowdfunded games Broken Age and Massive Chalice, is adding another game to its list of self-published titles. Iron Brigade on PC will now be published under the Double Fine label. The developer has also regained ownership of the intellectual property.

Double Fine is releasing an update to the Steam version of the game. In addition to bug fixes and improvements, the original matchmaking system has been removed and replaced with matchmaking via Steam.

“The great thing about this change is that now there are no obstacles to us creating the best possible experience for players,” said the game’s creator, Brad Muir. “We have fixed all known issues as well as provided a great matchmaking experience for multiplayer. Vlad and his Monovision Menace are on the move again! In the best possible way!”

Originally released in 2011, Iron Brigade was popular among players for its unique combination of tower defense and mech shooter gameplay. IGN called Iron Brigade, “the best downloadable game [they’ve] played all year.” Going on to say “Its skillful blend of witty writing, fun shooting, and tactical tower defense makes for hours of replayable gameplay.”

The update was released today for PC via Steam. To celebrate, the game is currently available for 80% off.

There are currently no plans to rename the game, “Trenched.”

Since its founding in 2000, it has produced the award-winning titles Psychonauts, Brütal Legend, Costume Quest, Stacking, Iron Brigade, Once Upon a Monster, Kinect Party, Middle Manager of Justice,  The Cave, Broken Age, and Massive Chalice..

"Thanks for sharing! Stacking is one of my all-time favorite games, and reading this design document really gave me a fresh appreciation for what a great game it is. Wish you guys could develop that "Knight at the Museum" DLC... controlling a T-Rex doll sounds so cool."

We’re making a Costume Quest Cartoon with Frederator!
