Double Fine integrates crowd funding into Amnesia Fortnight 2012

Each year Double Fine Productions drops everything they're working on and allows any willing employee to pitch an idea for a new game - this is dubbed Amnesia Fortnight. This year the company has opened up the process to the public, and allowing people to contribute funds in order to vote for their favourite game ideas. Hosted on Humble Bundle, the contribution each person makes can be divided up based on personal preference between Double Fine, the charity Child's Play and the hosting. Contributors also receive prototypes from the two previous years: Happy Song (the prototype for Once Upon A Monster) and Costume Quest as well as the top four prototypes based on this year's voting. Contributors who pay more than the average amount also receive the prototype Brazen, a four-player action co-operative game led by Brad Muir. The fortnight will be live-streamed and documented by 2-Player Productions.

You can view the pitches and contribute here: http://www.humblebundle.com/double-fine

It's not going to be an adventure game that apologises for being an adventure game. It's not going to be trying to be something else and have a bunch of action elements or something like that. But it's not a museum piece or just a nostalgia piece. It's going to be fresh and feel modern and feel like what the next game would have been if I'd made one straight after Grim Fandango.

Double Fine Kickstarter For New Adventure Title Achieves Goal in Just Over Eight Hours

Double Fine have created a Kickstarter for a new adventure game. The project promises to create a point and click adventure over a 6-8 month period under supervision of Tim Schafer (who previously worked on The Secret of Monkey Island and Grim Fandango) with funding from the public rather than relying on a publishing company for financial support. The project's goal was to hit $400,000, which it hit in a little over eight hours. As of the time of writing this article the current amount pledged is $1,516,389 with 31 days to go for further donations. Read on
