Have plenty of free time? Check out the new Double Fine documentary

By - | Views: 19,317

Have a lot of time free and love Double Fine games, especially Psychonauts 2? Good news, there's a multi-hour documentary now available.

Coming from 2 Players Productions, it encompasses six years and thousands of hours of footage cut down into an interesting little mini-series documentary about game development. Certainly worth a watch to get a bit more of the info behind the scenes. As described: "2 Player Productions and Double Fine Productions present Double Fine PsychOdyssey, an unprecedented documentary experience seven years in the making.

Ten years after the release of their flagship video game Psychonauts, Double Fine Productions returns to its most celebrated franchise with Psychonauts 2. Now facing the pressure to produce a worthy sequel, the studio must confront overly ambitious designs, poor morale, technical challenges and financial woes, all during a turbulent span of time for the world.

Double Fine PsychOdyssey is the direct continuation of the acclaimed series Double Fine Adventure, and offers even deeper insight into the passion, humor, and heartbreak of video game development."

I should probably get around to playing Psychonauts.

I'm looking forward to watching this docuseries. I've seen some behind-the-scenes videos that are so distilled and compressed that it barely shared anything at all, but this looks like it will be a much more intimate look at the people behind the game.

This looks interesting. I watch a few hours of Netflix each evening and a couple movies on Saturdays, it should be simple to add this to the lineup. Not enough time? Pish posh. Watch what I can when I can until I'm done and like that. :)

Not sure how well the gameplay holds up after all these years, for me nostalgia probably makes up for a lot of shortcomings, but the humor and charm is top-notch if you like that style!

Didn't Schafer and team also release a Grim Fandango book about its design and dev process back in the day? It seems they like giving this kind of insight to their games :)

Edit: Not quite the same, it was a puzzle document concept art: https://www.grimfandango.net/downloads/puzzle-document
