Double Fine has acquired the publishing rights for Psychonauts. That means that all future purchases of Psychonauts via Xbox Live or Steam will now go directly to the studio.

Trenched To Arrive on XBLA June 22

Double Fine’s tower defense game Trenched will arrive on Xbox Live Marketplace on June 15 for 1200MSP. Its a XBLA published title so don’t expect a PSN version to come anytime soon.

The co-op game pits you in a mech against your enemies in a tower-defense setting. The story, in Double Fine fashion, is pretty absurd and focuses around a competition around the manliest man ever who uses his mechanical wits to take on his evil former comrade.

Check out the intro cutscene trailer below. (more…)

Double Fine Working on Sesame Street Kinect Game

by William Saw - on Feb 15th 2011 - No Comments

About as unexpected as you can get, the fine purveyors of interactive entertainment – Double Fine – announced today that they are working on a Sesame Street game exclusively for the Kinect platform. Warner Bros Interactive will publish the studio effort when it releases this fall on Xbox 360.

Players can expect to solve puzzles and use Kinect’s motion controls for actions like jumping and dancing. The Sesame Street Workshop will incorporate the curriculum for the game. When asked why Double Fine wanted to make the game, studio head Tim Schafer responded,

“Sesame Street had a profound effect on me, and many members of the Double Fine team, when we were children.” “So did video games. Now many of us are parents and we want to share with our kids the great experiences we had, but also the completely new ones made possible by cutting-edge technology like Kinect for Xbox 360. So it’s a labor of love on many levels.”
