Double Fine Mis-Adventure: The 3 Million Dollar Indie Game

B-Mask and Kenny Farino debate whether Double Fine haven’t bitten more than they can chew with Broken Age.

In order to increase the amount of content being released, we have decided to launch a spin-off series called CCS Podcast VERSUS (now re-branded”After Hours”). Each episode we’ll be pairing up two Cheshire Cat Studios heads to discuss a trendy bit of news from the entertainment world that has caught either their interest or ire.

This episode: With alarming news that Double Fine’s much-anticipated point-and-click adventure game Broken Age, made popular by their last year’s successful Kickstarter campaign, has run out of funds once more, B-Mask and Kenny Farino debate whether Double Fine haven’t bitten more than they can chew and try to rationalize if the game can still be considered ‘indie’ with that much money behind it.

B-mask

B-Mask was not always a purveyor of animation. Having credentials ranging from frog slinger to hash seller, he has experienced life to its fullest extreme from under his tiny rock. He hosts the series known as Beyond Pictures which aims to look beneath the surface of works- understandably difficult in this day and age.

Kenny

Born in the stomach of a whale in a small fishing town in Antarctica, Kenny knew that his life mission would be to end world hunger, save Tibet, and finally learn how to dougie. Instead, he ended up studying law and writing the "Food For Thought" article series for CheshireCatStudios.com. One day, he hopes to become President of Brazil and blow up the moon.
