PAX West 2017

Come on down to Seattle this weekend and join us at PAX West for another weekend of games and pretty much nothing else!

This year is all about Double Fine Presents, so you’ll be able to play Knights and Bikes, Ooblets, and GNOG on ios. We’ll also be hosting a Gang Beasts tournament, so show up Friday or Saturday morning to earn a place in the semi finals, and a chance to compete for the championship on Sunday! 

Our shop will be extra large this year to accommodate all the goodies we have, including a host of vinyl records, some new shirts (new whispering rock colors!) and of course our two new official PAX Pinnys.
We’re in our usual spot on the 4th floor expo, next to playstation, booth #106

On sunday evening we’ll be hosting a fan meet in the usual spot - Hard Rock Seattle on Pike. It’s free admission, and no PAX pass is required, which means you have no excuse not to come! You can RSVP now on Facebook if you like. Hope to see you in Seattle this weekend folks!

Some of our games will no longer work on the new version of iOS

As is pretty much always the case, a new version of iOS for iphones and ipads will arrive soon. But this update comes with a frustrating slice of modernization: Once installed, iOS 11 will no longer allow you to launch 32-bit apps.

Lots of our games and apps are still 32-bit, and so we face the dilemma of either updating them to be compatible with the new 64-bit iOS (which is more complicated than it sounds) or we lose them forever.

We’re going to do our best to support our games and sail with them into this bright new 64-bit future, but unfortunately there’s not enough room on the lifeboat for everyone, and some of our apps are destined to sink into the briny depths of oblivion.

Safely in the lifeboat:
These guys will be updated to work on iOS 11 and beyond.

  • Full throttle Remastered
  • Grim Fandango Remastered
  • Day of the Tentacle Remastered
  • Broken Age

Left marooned somewhere:
These guys will be stranded briefly on limbo island whilst we figure out how best to save them.

  • Middle Manager of Justice

Lost to the depths:
Sadly these apps will not be updated for the new iOS. 

  • Costume Quest
  • Dropchord
  • Psychonauts Vault Viewer
  • The Cave

The Psychonauts Vault Viewer lives on in video form thanks to 2 Player Productions, see below!

Alas, poor Costume Quest for iOS and Dropchord and The Cave will be no more.

It’s worth noting that if you never upgrade to the new iOS then these three apps will go on working for that device, and should still appear on the app store for you too. The Vault Viewer is already free, but we will soon make Dropchord and Costume Quest games free too for anyone who chooses to remain in the past, and for everyone to be able to enjoy them in these final moments. The Cave’s future is uncertain, and is in SEGA’s hands, but it will not be updated.

Here is the Psychonauts Vault Viewer Archive Edition, which features some exclusive Psychonauts commentary from Tim and Scott C.

Welcome to Amnesia Fortnight 2017!

For the uninitiated, Amnesia Fortnight is an internal game jam in which the Double Fine development teams drop what they’re doing and work on prototypes for new games. It was originally designed as a break away from traditionally long development cycles to make something different for a while, but in later years provided prototypes for games such as Costume Quest, Hack n’ Slash and Stacking.

Everyone at Double Fine has the opportunity to pitch a game, and via a Humble Bundle that gives access to older prototypes, YOU can vote on the ones you want to see us make!  (You have until April 7th to vote!)
Two projects will be chosen by you, one by the folks here at Double Fine, and one by Tim.

The actual games making begins on April 12th, and the entire thing will be captured by the 2 Player Productions team who will upload a documentary episode every day so you can watch along at home, and get a glimpse into the process of making games

The video above gives you a quick glance at all the potential projects, but to see them all you’ll need to head on over to Humble and check them all out! To vote you’ll need to spend at least $1, but sending more unlocks extra bonus content. This year we will also be supporting Special Effect, a UK based charity that helps people with disabilities to enjoy video games.

Community Project!

This year the Double Fine Action Forums community will be jamming alongside us, and we’ll be mentoring them along the way. They’ve put together their own pitch videos, and you can vote for their project on our forums, where you will also be able to sign up and join in the fun yourself. Join us and make some games!

Amnesia Fortnight is an internal studio game jam in which everyone here pitches a game, and then you get to vote which ones we’ll spend the next two weeks making. The entire thing will be once more documented by 2 Player Productions so you can follow along at home.

The fun begins on 4/4, look out for more info then!
