The Day of the Devs lounge is coming. This event, an incarnation of the Day of the Devs event that is held jointly by Double Fine and iam8bit, is being held this year at the Game Developer's Conference.

There will be a Day of the Devs lounge that, according to the GDC event schedule, will be held every day of the convention (from Monday March 14 to Friday March 18) from 10AM to 5PM PST.

There will be 12 games shown off at this year's Day of the Devs: So, if you're heading to the GDC, make sure to stop by the Day of the Devs lounge to play Day of the Tentacle Remastered and Headlander for yourself, and give the other games a try while you're at it.

Psychonauts 2 gets Lead Designer

24 Feb, 2016, 22:28 | Posted by: Jason | Comments: 1

And it is Zak McClendon*, former Design Director at 2K Marin and Harmonix who's probably best known for his work on BioShock 2.

Will he successfully design a more challenging level than the Meat Circus, or will he utterly fail at his duties? Oh, let's not stress him out just yet. He deserves to enjoy the moment.

*Unfunny Zak McKracken pun removed at the discretion of the Mojo Quality Assessment Bureau.

Telltale Is Making Monthly Releases Again

11 Feb, 2016, 16:08 | Posted by: Jennifer | Be the first to comment!
It turns out that the quick release schedule of Minecraft: Story Mode isn't a fluke after all. Their three episode Walking Dead: Michonne miniseries will be released on a monthly schedule.

The first episode is coming out for computer platforms (no Linux yet though, but hopefully their Linux testing period yields results soon) and consoles (except for Wii U) on the 23rd of February, and the iOS and Android versions will be following, two days later, on the 25th.

Beyond that, they've already announced the release months for episodes two and three. Episode two will be releasing in March, followed by episode three in April. Hopefully this is a sign that their future releases, from Batman and beyond, will be released on a similar schedule.

Tim goes Beyond Good & Evil

10 Feb, 2016, 11:55 | Posted by: Jason | Be the first to comment!

If you're a smart little catfish you've probably been watching Double Fine's "Devs Play" on Youtube for some time now. While terrific, the series is not usually germane enough for us to highlight here on the incredibly crowded front page, but I really must acknowledge the latest episode, in which Tim asks Michel Ancel questions about Beyond Good & Evil while Double Fine producer Greg Rice plays said seminal masterpiece:

Tim Schafer as good at teasing out some great anecdotes from Ancel including that the famously polite Miyamoto was kind of a dick in his assessment of the game at E3, and how one of the game's hovercraft was modeled after the limo in Full Throttle. There's also a good story about a naked Italian man. Better than mine, anyhow.

For his part, Schafer draws a spiritual connection between the game and the Psychonauts franchise. And fails to coax out a release date for Beyond Good & Evil 2.
