The Double Fine Kickstarter Gets One Final Update

"This, at long last, is the FINAL UPDATE for this thing we have called the Double Fine Adventure," designer Tim Schafer wrote yesterday. It marks the end of one hell of a journey for the Kickstarter, which broke crowdfunding records and raised over $US3.3 million ($4.5 million) when it launched in early 2012. Four and a half years later, it's over.

Anyone who backed the Kickstarter will finally get their physical rewards, including a Blu-ray version of the Double Fine documentary, which took a while, but is required watching for anyone who cares about video games.

Seriously, if you haven't watched this documentary already, there's really no excuse. It's an incredibly revealing peek at what it's like to make video games. It's both heartbreaking and hilarious, striking the perfect balance between the cold realities of game development and the warm charm of Schafer and his gang of misfits.

Non-backers can buy the Blu-ray or digital remastered version (complete with unblurred spoilers and bonus footage), OR watch it all for free on YouTube right here. Totally free! No excuse!


    I'm an original backer, and can't wait to get my bluray copy of the doco. Started watching it way back, but decided to stop about 5 or 6 episodes in, just to wait to see it in all its bluray glory. Don't spoil the ending for me, guys.

    Have to say, the bluray packaging and menus are extremely well done, from what I've seen of them. Kudos to 2PP for such an excellent job on putting it together.

      You're in for a treat. Even if BA had never been finished, the documentary itself was well worth the money.
