The Humble Double Fine Bundle Celebrates 20 Years of Adventure

By 2 weeks ago

Legendary game development studio Double Fine is commemorating twenty years of operation this year, and it’s giving players the opportunity to get in on the festivities with the Humble Double Fine Bundle. Many of Double Fine’s titles, both internally produced and from its operation as a publisher, can be found in the bundle, leaving plenty for a customer interested in their oeuvre.

As is standard practice for these types of bundles, the Humble Double Fine Bundle operates on a tier system and unlocks offerings based on how much a customer pays. The minimum tier of $1 or more is already tempting enough, seeing as it unlocks a copy of Psychonauts, the classic PS2-era adventure title (Double Fine is currently developing a sequel for PC and next-generation consoles).

The tier also unlocks the 2012, 2014, and 2017 Amnesia Fortnight Series packs. The packs collect prototype games developed during Double Fine’s regular “Amnesia Fortnight” events, two-week game jams where developers blow off steam by trying out new ideas and making small games. Also included is the documentary series Double Fine Adventure!, which follows the story of Broken Age, the crowdfunded adventure game that helped put Double Fine (and game-related crowdfunding) into the spotlight.

The next tier unlocks six more recent Double Fine games, including Broken Age itself, intergenerational tactical strategy title Massive Chalice, the mini-RPG Costume Quest (which also has an animated series on Amazon Prime), the remastered edition of Lucasarts classic Day of the Tentacle, heavy metal fantasy Brutal Legend, and the VR title Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin.

The final tier of the Humble Double Fine Bundle, which unlocks at about $9 USD or higher, offers a large selection of titles not directly developed by Double Fine, but rather published by Double Fine Productions. The selection includes platformers like 140 and Escape Goat 2, shooters like THOTH and Headlander, more contemplative experiences like Mountain, Everything, GNOG, and KIDS, and even more traditional genre fare like Gang Beasts (a physics-based multiplayer wrestling game) and RAD (an isometric roguelike action title). Sealing the deal are the remasters of legendary adventure titles Full Throttle and Grim Fandango.

The Humble Double Fine Bundle will be available until August 12, 2020. Double Fine itself was acquired by Microsoft in 2019.

Maybe one day he'll see enough of a given season to pretend to know what's hot. Until then, it's Star Trek reruns, gacha games, and bylines at Destructoid and GameCritics.
