Videogamer.com recently had a chance to sit down with Tim Schafer
and ask him about Brutal Legend. When asked about what the team was doing, he said:
Well, some of them are relaxing. Some of them are working on... secret stuff. Secret stuff. I'm not there right now. A lot of them are playing the game, you know? We're doing some tests in multiplayer, you know, testing and thinking about ideas for a new game.
There are three interesting things here: 1. Tim Schafer has mentioned, in the past, that Double Fine might end-up being a two-project company, which I can not prove because Google is being an ass; 2. Knowing Microsoft, this is probably DLC - or, knowing gamers, new stuff for multiplayer; and 3. You can totally switch some letters around in that quote and end up spelling "Kroms is awesome," with extra letters for extra praise. Well, that or the word "ostrich", but I'm not sure if many others think of ostriches as wish-fullfilment, Schafes. Can I call you Schafes now? Buddy?
