Double Fine’s Amnesia Fortnight Games Chosen
Last week, we told you about Double Fine’s fourth annual Amnesia Fortnight game jam, specifically that the developer was letting fans vote on which titles pitched during it would be turned into playable prototypes. Well, the Humble Bundle-backed voting has wrapped up and the winners have been chosen. They are:
Hack n’ Slash, a Zelda-like game where you can hack the code to win:
Spacebase DF-9, a space station sim:
The White Birch, an “ambient platformer” in the vein of ICO:
Autonomous, a sandbox-style construction game featuring player-built robots:
Dark Lake, an adventure game set in a fairytale forest:
Now that the winners have been chosen, the company is dividing into five teams in order to create playable prototypes of each. These teams will spend two weeks on their development, after which the demos will be posted for those who contributed to Humble Bundle to download.
During the coming development, 2 Player Productions — the documentary crew that’s chronicling the Double Fine Adventure project — will be livestreaming from the Double Fine offices, providing a wrap-up video at the end of each day. Anyone can watch the stream, but the daily videos are only for paid viewers who’ll be sent a special URL via email.
Which one(s) are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments!
