Double Fine Announces New Kickstarter Project to Fund Old School Adventure

Want to help fund the development of a new video game by Tim Schafer? Now’s your chance.

Read on to find out how.


Double Fine Fans have requested many times over the years for Tim Schafer to return to his roots and make an old-school graphic adventure.  This has only become more frequent with the arrival of adventure game legend Ron Gilbert at the Double Fine offices. But finding traditional funding for an old-school adventure game is not the easiest thing to do.  Okay, actually, it’s impossible.

At Double Fine they try to be as creative with their business and funding ideas as they do with their games. So they are happy to announce that they will be using the crowd funding innovators Kickstarter to fund an honest to goodness adventure game.


Double Fine will use Kickstarter to gather funds for the game, offering the project’s Backers rewards in exchange for their contribution. Rewards include advance access to the game, original art from its development, and a bowling night out with the team.

2 Player Productions, creators of the Kickstarter-funded documentary Minecraft: The Story of Mojang, will be filming the team throughout the process. They will create a unique, serialized documentary available only to Backers. The 2 Player crew has been granted full access to the Double Fine studios, and their documentary will provide never-before-seen look at the real game production process at Double Fine.
