Tim Schafer Confirms Plans For iOS Version Of Double Fine Adventure

By , on February 16, 2012

Tim Schafer, the man behind classic point-and-click adventures such as Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango, took to crowdfunding website Kickstarter last week in a bid to raise $400,000 to make a brand-new adventure game.

Schafer explained that publishers were unlikely to ever back such a project, and so asked fans to fund its development instead.

At the time of writing, fans have pledged more than $1,850,000 on the project's Kickstarter page.

The game's budget has increased quite suddenly, then, and Schafer's team at independent studio Double Fine have been looking at how best to use all that extra cash.

In a video emailed to the project's backers (posted below), Schafer confirmed plans to bring Double Fine Adventure to iOS devices.

The project is still in the funding stage, so details of the game itself are sparse, with nary a screenshot in sight.

However, since the game's design and production is being filmed by a documentary team from 2 Player Productions, backers of the project will soon know more via monthly video updates.
