Double Fine PsychOdyssey – YouTube

Wait, shit, speaking about Tim Schafer, I just realised that I never linked to Double Fine’s PsychOdyssey when it was released earlier this year! It’s an epic warts-and-all, 6 year long behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of Psychonauts 2. The BTS stuff we usually get is part of the promotion of the game, they’d never allow anything bad to be shown. PsychOdyssey shows a company at its best and at its worst and it’s absolutely insane to me that a company would allow itself to be so candid. By the end, I was sobbing. Sobbing.

Honestly, even if you’re not into gamedev, this is worth your time, just because I don’t think we’ll ever see anything like it again.


Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge—The Commentary Tracks

Ron Gilbert, Dave Grossman and Tim Schafer recorded a commentary for the special edition of Monkey Island 2 and now you can listen without having to play through the game. A great rambling conversation with three old friends about the process of making a classic game.
