Double Fine embarks on new publishing venture

12:00 PM on 07.24.2014 // Brittany Vincent

Sounds (double) fine to me

Double Fine Productions has decided to point its talents in the direction of helping indie game studios with publishing and marketing. In an interview with Tim Schafer, it was revealed that although Double Fine won't be a publisher per se, it will be helping a select group of indie developers with whatever key problems arise.

Schafer explained that while it would not be lending its support to games that aren't its usual fare, such as military FPSs or sim racers, it will be proud to support indie devs that bring something creative and distinct to the table. Schafer pointed to MagicalTimeBean's Escape Goat 2 and Sam Farmer's Last Life as examples.

Although Shafer was reluctant to discuss the aspect of what monetary compensation Double Fine would receive from these indie developers in exchange for their services, he did state that if the game was funded via Kickstarter that Double Fine would not be taking a chunk of the funding intended or the game. He pointed to their policy being more of a royalty system, by stating that if a game is a huge hit that Double Fine would want to share in the profits, but nothing concrete has been decided yet.

This is a PSA: Never trust anyone who doesn't wet their toothpaste before brushing their teeth! Those people are clearly evil and their waifus are probably shit too!

Going back to Gravity Rush, I think I forgot how much I love it. The visuals, the interesting designs, the dreamy music, likable characters, and of course, just floating all over the place like it's no big thing. It blends together so well.

Gotta go with Vaporeon as it is absolutely adorable and makes for a great Water-Type. I'd upload a photo, but my internet is being screwy.

Hell yes. Nekro just pulled this from a Pokemon card booster pack. Don't judge me, I find the game to be fun, even if my deck is terrible.
