Tim Schafer wants you to fund Double Fine's new adventure game (Update)
Posted on February 08, 2012 by OG

Time and time again, we have heard how publishers will not put up money for adventure games.  No one knows that better than Tim Schafer of Double Fine Productions, as he was responsible for some of the most memorable adventure games ever, and who hasn’t really been able to make another one lately.  Since a publisher won’t give him the money, he’s asking you, the gamers, to fund a new adventure game.   

On their new Kickstarter page, Double Fine Productions is trying to raise $400,000 to develop a new adventure game and document it.  That’s right, a film crew will be documenting the whole process which will be available for everyone to see.  So what do you get when you help fund the project?   Not only do you have the satisfaction of supporting one of the greatest minds in gaming in a new project, but for $15 or more, you’re essentially paying upfront for a copy of the game on Steam.  The more you pledge, the more freebies you get.  As of the time of this article, they have already raised $134,174 of the $400,000 goal.  Go out and show publishers that you’re willing to pay for games that you want to play, and not what THEY think you want to play.

UPDATE:  In less than 24 hours, Double Fine Production has reached it's coal and then some.  Right now, the current amount raised is $1,198,550, almost three times the original $400,000 goal.  As stated in the page's FAQ, the extra money will go into the game's production.  You can still donate to the game and who knows, maybe we'll get a second game out of this.
