Tim Schafer wants to make games for Nintendo consoles

Nov 28 // Jonathan Holmes

I've always been baffled by the fact that no Tim Schafer games have ever made it to a Nintendo console (that I know of anyway). The man's irreverent sense of humor, general rejection of realistic visuals, and a focus on absurdity have always seemed like a good fit for Nintendo's audience. I was sure that the alleged Brutal Legend Wii port was going to sell at least as well as the 360/PS3 versions. Turns out, Schafer might have been thinking the same thing, though his publishers thought otherwise.

According to Schafer -- "Double Fine would love to make something for Nintendo's fine machine, but it's not up to us. It's the publisher's money, so they get to decide what platform to invest in. In other words, IT'S NOT OUR FAULT! I personally would have loved to make Psychonauts for the Game Cube. (Well, not literally me personally. I would have loved to tell someone else to make it, and I would have loved to watch them do it, and I would have loved yelling, "Faster! Faster!" as they worked.) I really hope we get a chance to make a game for the Wii some day. Why don't you spam your favorite publisher with mail right now and ask them to send us money to make a Wii game?"

Psychonauts and/or Brutal Legend port for the Wii and/or 3DS anyone?
