Double Fine “probably would do a sequel”, has ideas

Tuesday, 17th September 2013 02:55 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Tim Schafer has said he has ideas for sequels for all of Double Fine’s games, and would probably make one if it had a game as successful as triple-A franchises.

Kotaku asked Schafer about Bethesda’s recent decision to turn Dishonored into a franchise, and if he were tempted to do the same with any of his properties.

“When we have a game that’s as successful as Dishonored, and makes that much money, we probably would do a sequel,” he said.

“Honestly, currently the only reason we haven’t done a sequel is we always have some other idea that we want to do. They wanted me to do a sequel for Full Throttle at [Lucasarts] but I had the idea for Grim [Fandango], and if I’d made the sequel for Full Throttle I wouldn’t have made Grim, and so on and so on.”

Schafer said he’d like the chance to do a sequel one day, because he has ideas for all Double Fine’s games.

“Every one of our games is like, ‘Oh, now I see how to make that game correctly. Oh, I have a lot of ideas of how to make those mechanics better,’ or whatever. So I’d love to get that chance to do that,” he said.

“And there’s certain games that keep popping up, like Costume Quest. There’s an automatic reminder about Costume Quest every year called Halloween, which makes me think about making a sequel to that game every year.”

The new structure of Double Fine, with multiple teams, makes it more likely that a sequel might happen as one team could always be working on new ideas, something Double Fine is committed to.

    Grim Fandango blew me the fuck away. I don’t think I’ve ever been so caught up in a videogame story at any point since.

    @1 Still one of the best written games ever. The ending was a bit shite, mind. Only really fault I could ever give the game.

    If they could get the rights to Day of the Tentacle, I’d love to see a sequel!

    sorry to say it Tim Schafer, but you dont have it in you anymore. you live in your past and your best games have been made a decade ago. its time to retire and let it go before you ruin your legacy.

    I’d like a Psychonauts sequel. I’d like it very much, yes.

    @2 Really? The action part, or the happy ending?

    @5 This.

    Psychonauts is probably the best game that nobody has ever played.
