They're bloody everywhere now
In case you hadn't already picked up Psychonauts when it was available on the Xbox 360, the PS3, or Steam, you'll be pleased to hear it's soon to make its way to the PS4. Or maybe not, I don't know. If you haven't bought it y...

Spyro, Crash, Tearaway, and more

Earlier this year, Double Fine released a remastered version of Grim Fandango and the studio has a similarly spit-shined rendition of Day of the Tentacle ready for release in early 2016.

No more digging through your garage
We've known for some time that LucasArts' much-loved Day of the Tentacle is getting a remaster via Double Fine, but now we have a release window. In March 2016, you won't have to dig through your garage past all the old Playboy magazines to find your old LucasArts discs like I do.
I just realized I haven't played this game in literally twenty years. I'll have to fix that.
In the Rhombus of Ruin
Today at the PlayStation Experience in San Francisco, Double Fine announced Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, a virtual reality experience made exclusively for the PlayStation VR platform.

He's also performing some research

'Meat Boy and meet boy' -Steven Hansen
I'm torn on Super Meat Boy at this point in my life. On the one hand, it probably controls better with a PlayStation 4 d-pad than it ever did on the Xbox 360. On the other hand, I already went all the way through it when I wa...

Great fighter with a glass jaw
Double Fine's less scrutinized Kickstarter success, Massive Chalice, has been formally released half a year since entering Early Access. Along with Invisible, Inc., it formed a one-two punch of time-eating, XCOM-tinged turn-b...
I'm talking to you, Gold subscriber
Yeah, this is a public service announcement, because I am a public servant and it's my duty to inform you, the public. This isn't important on the scale of "We're going to war with Mongolia" or "Kylie Jenner's shorts are so s...
