Grim and Broken Age Switched; Poker Night 2 gone the way of Kevin Bruner; Tim on video 14 Sep, 2018 / 5 comments

First, Grim Fandango and Broken Age are out on the Switch, so go grab them if you can’t get enough Tim and/or beauty in your life. The latter (and I assume the former) is available for $14.99.

Poker Night 2, meanwhile, is not available anymore. In an unusually un-cheerful message, Telltale states: "Poker Night 2 has been withdrawn from sale on digital platforms due to the expiration of our digital distribution agreement. We currently do not have any plans to renew this agreement." You can still download the game if you already own it.

(I have no clue which license expired, but I like to pretend it’s Sam & Max.)

Finally, for more Tim, check out (in the sage words of AlfredJ, our exclusive source) "this Reddit biography video thing." I haven’t watched it, but apparently there is a shot of Curse of Monkey Island forty-four seconds in, so consider that official word of Double Fine’s next re-master. Watch.

Update! OK, so Grim isn't technically out yet, but it will be. Someday.

    I wouldn't be surprised if DF helped themselves to a few assets they weren't technically supposed to have when they went to the storage facility for DOTT/Grim/Throttle...



    For preservation, of course

    Aw man, I was so excited about Grim Fandango when I first saw this post...

    That clip of Curse is weird. It's a camera shot of a screen rather than a game capture so it definitely looks like it's in the Double Fine offices. It also plays when Tim talks about how "we make games". It's definitely the original though and not changed in any way. Who knows, but isn't it going to be a lot harder to sell now that the original is on GOG?


    I really don't think they'll be doing a remaster. One man can dream, of course.
