Double Fine On Not Producing PC Games

This is baffling. Via VG247, Double Fine say that their publishers do not allow/enable them to produce PC versions of their games: “We have much of the technology in place to produce PC versions of all these games, but there is still some more work required to make them shippable and that costs money. So far, our publishers have not elected to fund that work. Not because they hate PC gamers, but because they don’t see enough financial reward.” I get that this is Schafer basically saying “it’s not my fault”, but it still seems like a peculiar decision. Small budget, download-only games… Nope, such a thing is UNHEARD OF in PC land. It must be impossible to make a profit from them. Doubly peculiar that THQ, a publisher that otherwise brings everything out on PC, should be the one falling down in this regard. I’ve asked THQ for a comment. Basically because Costume Quest and Double Fine’s new game, Stacking, look like perfect PC fodder to me.

Hell, what do I know.
