Hideo Kojima Cliffy B And Tim Schafer Embark On An Epic Quest In Dawn of the Devs

Ron Gilbert (who basically can be quoted as the inventor of the graphic adventure game genre, writer of SCUMM, a cornerstone of LucasArts games) and Tim Schafer (Grim Fandango, Full Throttle) talking about adventure games. I am so thrilled that I could back them up at Kickstarter for their Double Fine Adventure Game. I wanted to pin this here, because I just saw the first snippet of their documentary on an exclusive Vimeo-channel and it is awesome, just like these guys.


Double Fine crowdfunds the development of its new adventure game. (btw: On the picture you can see Tim Schafer negotiating with publishers.)


Watch this video — clever script, tight editing, honest approach — and you'll know why Double Fine's Kickstarter goal of $400,000 was topped by almost $3 million.

Day of the Tentacle, also known as Maniac Mansion II: Day of the Tentacle, is a 1993 graphic adventure game developed and published by LucasArts. It is the sequel to the 1987 game Maniac Mansion. The game's plot follows Bernard Bernoulli and his friends Hoagie and Laverne as they attempt to stop the evil Purple Tentacle—a sentient, disembodied tentacle—from taking over the world.
