Double Fine & Capy Team Up for PAX, Game Bundle, & Other Hijinks

The fine folks at Capy Games are some of our best industry buds. So we decided to team up for PAX East! By our powers combined, we do fun stuff at video game conventions.

Sign up for the DF/Capy/IGN fan meetup if you’ll be in the Boston area during PAX!


San Francisco, CA & Toronto, Ontario—March 14, 2013—Double Fine Productions and Capy Games announced that they will be joining forces to take PAX East 2013 by storm. The two independent video game developers will be sharing a booth for the duration of the expo, which runs from March 22 to 24 in Boston.

The shared booth will be staffed by members of both teams, including Double Fine founder Tim Schafer and Capy co-founders Nathan Vella and Kris Piotrowski. Games from both studios will be playable at demo stations, including Capy’s highly anticipated XBLA platformer Super TIME Force and Double Fine’s recently-announced Leap Motion-compatible game Dropchord.

“We’re really excited to join up with Capy for PAX East,” Schafer commented. “I’ve been learning how to pick locks recently and I think I’ll be able to crack their booth merch cash box. Wait, why are you writing this down?”

“Capy is honored to be sharing a booth with Double Fine,” Nathan and Kris added in perfect unison, weirdly. “We’ll have twice as much booth space as usual, because we’re planning on calling dibs on DF’s half when they go to the bathroom. That’s how it works, right?”

Gamers will also be able to save big on titles from Double Fine and Capy, as a seven-game bundle will be available on Steam from March 21 to March 29. It will contain Double Fine’s Brütal Legend, Psychonauts, Costume Quest, and Stacking, as well as Capy’s Critter Crunch, Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP (which was developed in collaboration with Superbrothers & Jim Guthrie), all for a heavily discounted $34.99 (60% off).



As if that weren’t enough, PAX East attendees will be able to purchase an extremely-limited edition DF/Capy Bundle box, containing a Steam download code for all seven games. The team-up will also be commemorated by a special convention-exclusive shirt emblazoned with a rightous mashup of the two studios’ logos and an art print featuring characters from their games.


Convention attendees and Boston-area fans will also be able to join Double Fine and Capy, as well as staff of major gaming website IGN, for an informal-meetup held during PAX East. The event will be open to the public from 5pm to 8pm on Saturday, March 23 at Lucky’s Lounge, located at 355 Congress St. in Boston.

"Is it possible to get a wallpaper-sized version of the box art and/or the poster? I'm in love with the design of both!"

"Why, is that the Double Fine Adventure leads on the poster? I believe it's them!"

"Grr.. Why did PAX East have to sell out so early?! I want that limited edition DF/Capy box! That's it- I'm going to catapult myself in past the guards. There's nothing in the rules about that."

"Two questions: 1) Will Double Fine have other merch available (Cave Action Figures, other t-shirts) available at PAX? 2) Will the boxed game collection have individual steam codes for each game or one code that unlocks all games? I own almost all of the Double Fine and Capy games in the bundle so it would be great to give away the ones I already own to friends."
