News: He's the head of Double Fine you know.
Vivendi Games and Tim Schafer's Double Fine Production have reached an agreement to publish Double Fine's next game. The game currently has no title, no release date and is being developed for unknown platforms.
Schafer has previously worked on critical favorites like Grim Fandango and Psychonauts. This will be the second game from Double Fine. This new game will be published under Vivendi's Sierra label.
"The Sierra team has been awesome to work with," said Tim Schafer, president and CEO of Double Fine Productions. "Everyone we've met brings experience from a small developer background, so they know where we're coming from and what we have to do to make a great game. Combine a developer-friendly attitude, support for innovation, major-publisher status with a worldwide scope and you have a perfect match for Double Fine."
"Double Fine's track record for producing innovative, original and fun titles is second to none, and we're looking forward to bringing amazing games to market together," said Martin Tremblay, president, Worldwide Studios for Sierra Entertainment. "Tim Schafer and team bring an intense passion to developing games and the Sierra team also infuses great fervor into our own creative processes. Not only does this relationship reiterate Sierra's commitment to work with and support the best talent in the industry, but teaming with Double Fine signals the emphasis we put on producing a cutting edge, high quality product."
