    Double Fine certainly wasn't the first company to use Kickstarter, but it was the first huge name to recognize its potential as a funding source. Their "Double Fine Adventure Game" Kickstarter was an overnight sensation, and sparked the huge crowd funding craze that's still alive and well.

    Some people have been a little miffed, and justifiably so - we haven't heard much of anything about the project since the Kickstarter ended. The team has been pretty mum, and even released another game in the meantime. Some wondered if we would ever receive another serious update.

    Double Fine, perhaps looking to avoid a trouble fine (my lawyer assures me this is a real thing), has finally broken the silence.

    Broken Age? Don't they mean Dragon Age II? HI-YO!

    Double Fine is a pretty strong developer overall; they have a pretty unique sensibility that makes their games stand out from the crowd. They're games are always, at the very least, interesting. Hopefully that track record is maintained.

    Plus, the plot sounds intriguing enough. I don't know about you, but it's all fine with me. In fact, it's more than just fine... it's fine squared.

    I can't say I've really enjoyed a Double Fine game that much, interesting ideas and concepts but ultimately I got bored with them fast just like The Cave, Brutal Legend & Psychonauts all got old fast for me. I hope for the best for this game seeing it goes back to Shafer's point and click roots.

    $3 million for a fucking point and click game. Are you fucking serious?

    To be fair they only asked for $400,000, a rather small budget for a game.

    I'm not usually a fan of point-and-click games, though I've loved every single Double Fine game so I might just pick this up.

    The updates for backers have been fairly regular, definitely good by kickstarter standards.
    Can't wait to play the game :)

    Compared to upwards of $100 million for a fucking FPS, it doesn't seem like a lot.

    It's what they got, not requested. I think even the base request is crappy though.

    But hey, at least they're being honest about what the money's going for, unlike some other projects.
