Double Fine is the game developer behind great games like Psychonauts and Stacking. It’s also the brainchild of Tim Schafer, a former LucasArts employee who created Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango, two of the very best games ever made. Now Tim has teamed up with Ron Gilbert, creator of Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island, to create a brand new point-and-click adventure game. They’re doing it small-scale, with a planned Fall 2012 release. I can’t wait.

What’s more, Double Fine has decided to forego seeking a publisher. Publishers are a waste of time, and if Double Fine pitched a point-and-click adventure they’d get sent packing. Adventure games are dead! Tim and his brethren have taken the case to the fans instead. They’re going to fund the entire game development through Kickstarter. Click to read more.
