Kickstarting Double Fine Adventure: The Final Countdown

Company: Double Fine Studios
Product: Double Fine Adventure

For anyone who doesn't know, Tim Schafer and his company, Double Fine decided to answer the repeated requests to create another great point-and-click adventure, like the great ones of old, such as Day of the Tentacle and Full Throttle, which Schafer created back when he worked for Lucas Arts.

To fund this project, referred to simply as Double Fine Adventure, they decided to put it up on Kickstarter, a donation-based project funding website. Their initial goal was to raise $400,000 to eke out the game. They met this goal in a mere 8 hours... but it didn't stop there. As of this writing, the Double Fine Adventure has received pledges upwards of 2.8 million dollars. And, there's just under 24 hours remaining to help back the project; the Kickstarter project closes at 5:00 PM PST on March 13th.

The game is being made for PC, Mac, Linux and certain iOS and Android devices, and for a mere $15 pledge, you get the game, plus exclusive access to the Beta on Steam and other goodies. And the rewards go up from there. There are a variety of awards still available, including Lunch with Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert, a tour of the Double Fine offices and more. If you're a fan of Tim Schafer and you didn't know about this, what rock have you been living under?! If you meant to get onboard, but just haven't gotten around to it, the clock is ticking.
