Super Time Force, Critter Crunch and Sword & Sworcery developer Capybara Games has joined forces with Double Fine for a special promotion at PAX East. EDGE reports the two companies will share a booth, and have produced a little OutRun style racer starring characters from both developers’ catalgoues called Capy Fine Racing GP. The game will only be available on 3.5″ floppy discs, inside the Capy Double Fine PAX combo, a boxed release of the Steam bundle. “We only made 200 boxes, and even then some of the floppies might not work, but the people who buy them will be allowed and encouraged to share the game,” Capy co-founder Nathan Vella said. PAX East runs March 22-24 in Boston.

Double Fine has been in regular touch with its Kickstarter backers about progress on its crowd-funded Adventure, but has kept quiet otherwise. That seems about to change, with a new backer update noting that there’s “actually not been much public non-backer information released about the game at all” and that “the first real trailer is in the works now”. Expect to learn a lot more about the game which may have changed the industry forever in the near future. Double Fine Adventure is expected before the end of the year, on Linux, Mac and PC, and will also release on Ouya, well before it heads to other consoles.

Throw your devil horns in the air, kiddos, because Brutal Legend may be heading to Steam if CDR database information is any indication over on The Bronasarium. So, yeah, that’s good news for those who’ve been wanting a PC version. Also noted in the database is something call the Double Fine Bundle 2013 which contains Psychonauts, Costume Quest, Stacking and Brutal Legend. Sounds great to us. Thanks, PCgamesN.
