Amazing Double Fine Extravaganza teases “multiple” reveals this week

By Brenna Hillier, Sunday, 9 October 2011 22:50 GMT

Invitations sent to games media suggest Stacking, Iron Brigade and Brütal Legend developer Double Fine has a number of new reveals to make this week.

GameInformer scored an invite to an event on October 14, which promises six “incredible products to behold” as well as “multiple exciting announcements”.

Tim Schafer’s independent studio has been quiet since the release of Trenched, which was recently renamed as Iron Brigade. Its last few games, including Stacking and Costume Quest, have been small, creative projects – an approach we may see the team take again, given the number of reveals expected.

Although the studio has not ruled out a return to core triple A development, Double Fine’s difficulties with Brütal Legend – which switched publisher from Activision to EA at a late stage – Schafer’s comments since have suggested he is wary of it.

Double Fine is currently working on Once Upon a Monster, a Sesame Street-licensed, Kinect-powered family game.
