Double Fine is without a doubt one of the most creative studios in the business. For 20 years, Tim Schafer’s teams have enjoyed offering us unique experiences and creating universes of rare abundance. Beyond their colorful and whimsical appearance, Double Fine games are primarily narrative jewels with precise and often funny spelling. And with Psychonauts 2 about to be released, we wanted to dive deep into the bowels of this studio. Where did that easily recognizable paw come from? How Double Fine survived two reported bankruptcies and a lawsuit against Activision? We are pleased to present you our first documentary: Double Fine, the deviants who wanted to be free.
Double Fine: Deviants who wanted to be free
Tim Schafer is an iconic figure in video games. With him begins the story of Double Fine and continues today as Xbox Game Studios. But studio life was not a long, calm flow, on the contrary.
Behind Raz, Eddie Riggs and the other characters from Double Fine is more than just a story of funny worlds. The teams’ DNA is in each of the studio’s games. In every story told there are beliefs, ideologies, and a true identity that cannot be found anywhere else.
These themes, this fight between David and Goliath, the passionate against the businessman, we find in the games of the studio. But we find them even more in the history of Double Fine. Sit back and discover the true identity of Double Fine.
