Double Fine’s Amnesia Fortnight game jam returns

Vote, watch, play

So that’s what was inside Tim Schafer’s mystery box: Amnesia Fortnight!

Double Fine’s two-week game jam is back for 2017 with a fresh batch of pitches to hear out and vote on. The winning ideas will move onto the next stage, becoming playable prototypes, and the whole wild process is documented by 2 Player Productions (Double Fine Adventure) for our viewing pleasure.

Voting is handled through Humble Bundle with a $1 bundle purchase, and that’s also where you’ll be able to hear more in-depth game pitches from the hopeful creators. In this year’s Fortnight, there are going to be four winners — two chosen by us, one by Double Fine’s team, and one by Tim Schafer.

At a glance, my favorites are The Gods Must Be Hungry, “a 3D platformer where warrior chefs make giant meals to stop ravenous gods from eating the human race,” and Outside, “a game about kayaking and exploring the great outdoors.” What about you? What’s sounding good here?
