Double Fine Productions Abandons Publishers Entirely, Raises One Million Dollars

Posted by | February 10, 2012

The eternally troubled Double Fine Productions, run by maniac creator Tim Schafer, had a problem. Publishers. When you produce strange, quirky games full of personality like Psychonauts and Brutal Legend, it’s hard to make it through the project without the publisher coming around and suggesting the game be remade into something more… mainstream. Because, of course, every game should be Modern Warfare. So Double Fine tried something new, going to the fans. Their goal was to raise $400,000 over a month for a new game. They got $1,000,000 in a day. Digital Trends has the story.

    If crowd-sourcing gets me the missing third act of Brutal Legend, I’m all for it.
