Tim Schafer Doesn't Want You To Worry About Sales

If there's one thing Brütal Legend and Psychonauts creator Tim Schafer doesn't want you spending valuable brain cycles on, it's the sales figures for video games—especially his own.

The Double Fine Productions founder tells MTV Multiplayer that even though sales of last-gen effort Psychonauts didn't quite line up with its critical reception, things are cool. And that's important.

"Fans worry too much about sales, to tell you the truth," Schafer tells MTV. "As long as you make a cool game, publishers want to talk to you." The cool as a cucumber creator behind beloved fare like Grim Fandango and Full Throttle also seems unconcerned about Brütal Legend's chances at retail.

Schafer says Double Fine's upcoming open-world action game has the benefit being simply more "commercial," stuffing Hollywood talent, foxy chicks, and molten guitar licks into a tasty package. So don't fret, don't fuss, dear gamer. Just buy Brütal Legend when you get the chance.

Tim Schafer: Gamers Worry Too Much About Sales [MTV Multiplayer]


    I have never played a Tim Schafer game and I really regret it.
    Brutal Legend is definitely a day one purchase for me.
    I know you can get Psychonauts on XBox Live, but does anyone know where you can download
    Grim Fandango and all the old SCUMM games.

      Sadly you can only buy second hand copies off amazon, which is a shame because Grim Fandango has possibly the finest story telling of any game, ever.
