Double Fine Presents: Last Life second title to benefit from indie's backing
Double Fine has thrown its support behind noir adventure Last Life, the second game to be announced as part of the indie's quasi-publishing scheme.
"Tim Schafer is kindly spreading the word about Last Life. In fact, it's one of the first games that get to proudly wear the Double Fine Presents banner," developer Sam Farmer of Rocket Science wrote on the project's Kickstarter page.
Like Escape Goat 2 before it, Double Fine will be helping promote and distribute Last Life, as well as advising on development.
Currently seeking $75,000 on Kickstarter, Last Life is an episodic noir affair inspired by modern adventures like The Walking Dead and Kentucky Route Zero. If successful, the three-part story will launch on Linux, Mac and PC, chronicling the adventures of a Martian detective who is brought back to life to solve his own murder. Take a look at the pitch video below.
Discussing Double Fine's publishing activities recently, COO Justin Bailey said the company's intend is to augment traditional publishing rather than to replace, and to put an end to the devaluing of indie games.
