The lights are on
Double Fine has announced that its two-week break from core projects, affectionately known as “Amnesia Fortnight,” is in full swing. The studio is live-streaming the development of four different small games.

This year’s Amnesia Fortnight is being documented by 2 Player Productions, with the pilot episode available here. If you’d like to tune in and watch the development, you can do so on the Double Fine Twitch channel.
