Double Fine acquire distribution rights to Costume Quest and Stacking following “top-secret midnight raid on the Nordic Games headquarters”

The gaming press are rarely interested in the boardroom chat of big publishers. The talk is dry, involves big numbers, and the chance of a good biscuit is practically nil. However, that often means we miss out on the talk of daring midnight-raids involving gyrocopters flying low over the Wien river.

Notch won’t be funding Psychonauts 2

Notch won’t be funding Psychonauts 2Sometimes, Twitter is the electric blue conduit that joins the dots between human beings and makes things happen - campaigns, revolutions and running jokes. But on other occasions, it’s a hub of hubbub, misinformation and exciting propositions that end in disappointment.

See, when Notch told Double Fine’s Tim Schafer via Twitter that the pair should “make Psychonauts 2 happen", he really meant it. But that was before he’d seen the price tag.
