The lights are on
Part of the wildly successful Double Fine Kickstarter is a series of videos from the talented 2 Player Productions documenting the creation of Double Fine's new adventure game. As an early preview of this documentary series, 2 Player posted this video to its YouTube account.
In this great 35-minute video, which was filmed before the Kickstarter launched, Double Fine's Tim Schafer sits down with his one-time mentor and current coworker Ron Gilbert to discuss the state of adventure games. They talk about why they love them, why they haven't made them in so long, and where they could go in the future. There's also a lot of fascinating discussion about what they want to do with this new adventure project.
Enjoy the video below. If it convinces you to give money to Double Fine, you can still contribute to its Kickstarter and earn the chance to watch the rest of 2 Player Production's serialized documentary as they release it.
It's unappreciated. We need moar.
Please be a new Monkey Island game! Hey! I can dream can't I?
Tim Schafer seems like he has more of an expanded awareness on current games and their issues; I'm still excited for these guys to pair up and make an awesome adventure game. Thanks for the video GI.
I never had a PC as a kid and I still see the adventure games that they made and know that they're awesome. Too bad most people don't have the patience to appreciate them.
Can't wait to see what this is all about. I've only played Brutal Legend, but I'd love to see what else Tim has stored up in his head!
Love watching people talk on a controversial subject.
This was incredible to watch. The entire time I was thinking, I hope they mention the games I used to play, I think they were adventure games. And then I find out Ron helped make Freddie Fish, Putt-Putt as well as Spy Fox and Pajama Sam and I couldn't stop smiling. The subsequent mommy joke made it even better because I thought wow I'm a lot older now, it has been that long and that was really funny. Off to go finally donate.
Thanks for the vid, hope it didnt blow too much of your 2 mil lol.
The old Leisure Suit Larry games were great! Even the point and click kids games like Pajama Sam, Putt Putt etc. would be great reference material! One of the best was Kings Quest4 or 5 (whichever one had a minotaur on it) It had great play options and small puzzles, could never get past the gnomes you had to trick with different items...
Tim Schafer reminds me a lot of Zach Galifainakis...
Very biased conversation; much talk of Monkey Island. They ALMOST talked about Spy Fox!!!
Totally looking into this probably going toto pick it up if my computer can run it
Good video, I'll be looking forward to the documentary on the kickstarter game they intend to make
