Cutesy Halloween adventure Costume Quest 2 is free on Epic

Spook-o-ween is almost upon us, dear readers. And while there's not a single fun-sized Snickers in sight, trotting up to old Mr Epic Games Store's front door this week has treated to two new freebies - Double Fine's charming Costume Quest 2 and the decisively less whimsical Layers Of Fear 2. Same as before, they're yours to keep until this time next week, when they'll…

Double Fine’s 20th Anniversary Humble Bundle is a right steal

It's just getting silly now, isn't it? Not content with giving us the best of Paradox and an indie pick 'n' mix courtesy of Raw Fury, those bundle fiends at Humble have arguably come up with one of their best bundles yet in the form of their new Double Fine 20th Anniversary celebration. For just £7 / $9, you can get 23 games from the…

Psychonauts 2 features the dulcet tones of Jack Black

I had looked away from the Xbox Games Showcase for a mere couple of minutes when the new Psychonauts 2 trailer dropped, so you may understand my surprise when I started hearing Jack Black's voice blaring through my headphones. That's right, Double Fine's sequel to the bizarre brain-exploring platformer will feature songs performed by the School Of Rock teacher himself. Here's that trailer with the,…

Gang Beasts is going it alone and self-publishing future updates

Silly wobble person fighting game Gang Beasts is going it alone, planning to self-publish future updates. Last year, Boneloaf's former publisher Double Fine Presents was bought up by Microsoft, eventually saying that continuing to be a publisher after being bought by a bigger publisher "doesn't make sense," and calling the new structure a "complicated issue." Looks like Gang Beasts will come out of the equation…

Have You Played… Gang Beasts?

A lot of my friends from school have done things like have children or move to other countries now, but in the wilderness years of 2010-2016 we still all returned to our home town every Christmas, primarily to see our families, but also, secondarily, to get absolutely destroyed on Christmas eve.A tertiary reason was that my friend Tim, who has now both had a child…

The Epic Games Store has a little Halloween treat for you, with both dress 'em up RPG Costume Quest and grim depths survival game Soma free for the next week. If you're going to grab a freebie for your kiddy-winks, I urge you to be very careful with your clicks or prepare for some long nights ahead. Epic also just announced a few new additions…

Knights And Bikes review

You can't sprint in Knights And Bikes without making a noise. Demelza and Nessa, the two player characters in Foam Sword's optionally co-operative adventure, insist on it. Demelza goes all in with dopplering 'vrmmmms' and 'nyeeoows', while Nessa, older but no less playful, exaggerates the swoosh of the wind. The kids swoop about Demelza's island home, between caravan parks and scrapyards and the struggles of…

Feature: Everything including the kitchen sink

Have You Played… Everything?

In Everything you play as everything. A fleet of flying sofas, a tiny ant, a string of DNA floating on the wind. You can play as giant trees, erupting forth from the ground as you sprout and slither your way across the land, or perhaps you'd prefer to lead an entire orchestra's worth of musical instruments through the purple, unending void inside an alien spacecraft.…

Double Fine Presents “doesn’t make sense” anymore, says Tim Schafer

Indies, eh? They're not just developers these days. Since 2014, Double Fine have published a wildly diverse range of indies under the Double Fine Presents label. Their latest, charming Cornish adventure Knights And Bikes definitely has that recognisably Double Fine quirkiness, but they've also pushed some properly weird little curiosities like Kids and Mountain.But Double Fine are with the big dogs now. The next thing…

RAD review

Wot do I think? I think the return of words like "rad", "tubular", and "bodacious" are less welcome echoes of the 1980s than the returning threat of nuclear Armageddon, for a start. As such, it's with a particularly glowering eye that I turn to RAD, Double Fine's new action game about bashing mutants in the face (or face-like area), whose title is pretty indicative of…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Psychonauts 2 is funny, surreal, and has a lot of teeth in it

If Disney Pixar did a remake of Inception, it would probably look like Psychonauts 2. At least, that’s how I’m going to explain it to those who have not played the original. Yes, I know Psychonauts explored the mind invasion angle years before Leonardo and the girl from The Last Of Us got lost in the brain of a trust fund baby. But that's still…

Feature: A legend remembered

Have You Played… Brütal Legend?

Brütal Legend isn't something I enjoyed much for the game itself. That's largely because I was expecting it to be an action adventure through a metal universe, not a real-time strategy. However, the one thing that I took away from it was the music. I'd always been into rock music and the idea of a metal Double Fine adventure was enticing. So rather than engage in…

Microsoft buy Psychonauts studio Double Fine Productions

Double Fine Productions, the studio behind cheery games including Psychonauts and Brutal Legend, have been bought up by Microsoft. They say they'll continue to make those Double Fine games in that Double Fine way, which I suppose is what everyone says after their business is acquired.

Double Fine announce RAD, a post-apocalyptic hack n’ slasher

Double Fine have just unveiled tongue-in-cheek '80s-themed post-apocalyptic hack n' slasher RAD. Players control a baseball bat-swinging, life-bringing teen as they explore a radioactive wasteland, fighting and looting as they go, action RPG style. Wherever you walk, lush green grass sprouts in your wake, but exposure to the weirdness of the wastes changes you in turn. Players can pick up a bunch of big, weird, visible…

The deals deluge begins, and GOG's winter sale opens with free goodies. Swoop on down to the giveaway page here and you can grab Full Throttle Remastered, Double Fine's polished-up version of the classic short-but-sweet Lucasarts adventure. While John wasn't sold on its new (and optional) art, he still had a lot of lovely things to say about it in his review. It was worth…

Psychonauts 2’s first trailer looks as charmingly twisted as ever

Psychonauts 2 is looking exactly how a Psychonauts 2 should. Double Fine have kept the hype-engine on their Lucasartsian platform adventure sequel gently idling since their crowdfunding drive in 2016. Last night at the game awards they gave it a quick rev. Somehow, this is the first real trailer for the game - familiar, but with some exciting new sights, sounds and people to meet.…

Feature: Ah yes, repressing your feelings

The Joy Of Psychonauts’ most revealing memory vault

Memory is a funny old thing. Our brains are like faulty cameras, letting us unconsciously suppress moments of our lives and swap them out for brighter, more palatable realities. When we’re reminded of these small time capsules, the serene environments we were in and the people we were with, we often feel an endorphin rush and a lurid longing for something that isn’t there anymore.…
