Double Fine Adventure Being Made by Fan Backing

Double Fine Adventure Game Kickstarter page has been started for a point and click adventure game by a small Double Fine team led by Tim Schafer over a course of 6 to 8 months.

The official line is that the project will only be produced if $400,000USD in pledges is reached by March 13, 2011. But, forget that, since the project has only been up for a few hours and it's over $300,000USD already. It WILL be made.

So, go to the Double Fine Adventure Game Kickstarter page, pledge $15USD or more, and get yourself access to the game when it's finished on Steam, as well as access to the PC beta on Steam before the game's released. A documentary is also being made which will follow the team around step by step as they design the game. Pledges of $15 or more get access to the documentary too, as well as access to a private forum where they can discuss the game and offer advice to the team as it's being made.

Pledges of more than $15USD get more goodies. Check out the Double Fine Adventure Game Kickstarter page to see the list of pledge tiers and their rewards.

So far, the game is only planned to be released on PC via Steam, but when the pledge value goes over $400,000 the extra money will be put back in the game and documentary. This extra money could go towards more professional voice overs, or money to release the game on additional platforms.
