Notch buys Double Fine. Shuts down Double Fine.01 Apr, 2012, 10:03 | Posted by: ThunderPeel2001 | Source: News
In a news story that will likely go down in history, gaming entrepreneur Markus "notch" Persson has announced his successful purchase of Double Fine Productions.
Earlier in the year, the independent game developer, known for his successful game "Minecraft", announced tentative plans to help fund a Psychonauts sequel. Since then all has been quiet, overshadowed by Double Fine's successful Kickstarter project.
Today "notch" broke his silence and announced his successful acquisition of Tim Schafer's company, only to immediately shut down the company.
In his statement made to press, Persson said: "I knew they were worth at least $3.3M from the Kickstarter donations, so I made sure I paid less than that. Now I get to keep the difference!"
Double Fine Productions ceased business at 12am PST this morning. Rumours that they'll resume normal operations on Monday 2nd, April, are so far unfounded.
