      These Forums are closing!   10/04/2019

      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

  1. I know you guys are aware, but news of platform exclusivity breaks this fan's heart. I invested in an HTC Vive not only because I believed it to be the best VR experience on the market, but because OpenVR and OSVR are open platforms. Clearly this is a financial choice (I kind of wish sometimes that Double Fine was able to operate out of a basement instead of San Francisco and pay their developers peanuts -- no offense), but as someone who is also a Psychonauts fan who won't buy into the PSVR for financial reasons (as well as closed platform reasons), I am very concerned that I will be similarly cut off from the amazing creative output of Double Fine's future titles ultimately due to payments for platform rights. Hopefully Double Fine will somehow find a way to communicate something to assuage the fears of fans like me. Right now it seems like a valid concern.
  2. PS4 exclusive?
