Double Fine announcing 'something new' today

Brutal Legend, Psychonauts studio's new project is not a sequel or a port, promises Tim Schafer.

Brutal Legend and Psychonauts studio Double Fine Productions will announce "something new" later today, founder Tim Schafer has said over Twitter last night.

"Excited about announcing something new tomorrow! Not a sequel or a port," Schafer said. Something new. I might even put on new underwear."

Schafer gave no further hints about what this project may be. Double Fine is currently working on multiple unreleased titles, including music-driven game Dropchord and its Kickstarted point-and-click adventure game Broken Age.

Tim,

You have an amazing mind, but I don't think you are listening.  Stacking... good.  Costume Quest... fine.  FOR THE LOVE OF GOD... make Psychonauts 2!!!

I would rather have a sequel like Psychonauts 2 than something new.

Another indie game? Look I like indie games but a studio of their caliber should atleast satisfy my inner metal head needs! Brutal legend 2? Of course not...

What a surprise, another pointless 'article' that tells us absolutely nothing. Why not wait until they have actually made the announcement and then write about that? How is this guy still employed?

I'd need to change my underwear if it was Psychonauts 2.

So why not just write up the actual announcement? And why is it we got more details, as well as a debut trailer, for a new game in a popular franchise a couple days ago, yet there's been nothing posted here about it? That would seem more newsy than an announcement...about an announcement.

I can't wait to see what they announce. :)

I just hope that as a studio they're not biting off more than they can chew.

what is it with these announcements for an announcement these days, is it announce-ception?

just give the news it self, not the news that there will be news.

So not the kickstarter adventure game? Well... cool then. Interested to see what it might be.

Tim is one of the good ones.

I'll be glad to perk my ears up for this one and listen without the cynicism that so many others' words bring.

Have Double Fine ever worked on a sequel? Perhaps that's why I love 'em.

@smoothyplum26 it's great that double fine continues to make new games but I don't think its necessary either, bother extremes can suck

@unreal_master Well they did raise over one million dollars through the Double Fine Bundle. Assuming they got most of that money they should definitely have enough for a couple of games.

@2bitSmOkEy even though they said it wasn't a sequel...you're right though, that would be underwear changing worthy. Loved that game.

@snova9308I can now announce that my reply to this comment will be in the form of a minimalistic, but yet profound statement. The reply will express agreeableness with the initial commenter’s point of view, and provide readers with a clear view of my subjective opinion on this subject.

@DoctorsTardis I was joking that my hope was that double fine would reveal the xbox one, not that they had an xbox one release. My joke wasn't that funny though

@Acardorin @snova9308 Breaking News!  Industry analysts and pundits are speculating about what the agreement between Acardorin and snova9308 could mean for the comments section in general.

Representatives of the two have said "we do not comment on speculation and rumour"

We'll keep you posted as events unfold.

@Acardorin @snova9308 I'd like to announce that my comment will not be a sequel or a port of any of my previous comments. Further announcements regarding what my comment WILL be may yet be forthcoming.

When Gamespot contacted me I was not available for comment.

@snugglebear @punksterdaddy 

lol, I'm not sure you could buy many products with a rubber chicken with a pulley but you're doing well with that much!

Double Fine should make an exception though?

All I have is a broken comb, a bald toothbrush and a used condom (two careful owners).

I've tried Ebay but only one person has bid? That turned out to be my Dad and I know he's broke!

Hey wait.... you wouldn't be inter..... Nah, your broke too. Oh well.

The search continues!

 [Update]

In an unexpected turn, rumours are rife of a possible collaboration with an as-of-yet-unnamed rap artist and motoring customization enthusiast.

Sources close to the parties involved say they are truly excited about the content they are bringing to the comments section, although details of future posts are sketchy.

MTV were not available for comment.

@Renunciation A report has emerged regarding the registration of new domain name myreplytoyourcomment.com. Industry analysts say this strongly suggests that a response to your previous comment is on the cards, although at the time that this comment went to press, I had not been forthcoming with a response to any requests for confirmation.

@JangoF-76  A substantial portion of an internal memo, which hinted at a potential forthcoming reply to your comment, got leaked.  

As a result, expect an announcement that I am currently beginning the process of making a decision about whether or not I should reply at all.
