Help fund Double Fine's new game!

Here's an interesting way to show a developer you share their vision. Fund the cost of their game's production!

Double Fine (developers of Psychonauts, Brutal Legend, Stacking, Costume quest) and front man Tim Schafer (The Secret of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango) want to throw back to the time when adventure games ruled the PC and craft another gem for the fans.

While there are talks of Notch and Schafer in talks of crafting a Psychonauts 2, funded entirely by Notch (the man behind MineCraft), this is something different altogether.

The team needs $400,000 by the 13th of March to make a go of it and as of writing, they are at $249,000 (up from $241,000 when I decided to write this blog post).

Best of all? Donate $15 or more and you already have yourself a copy of the game when it comes out on steam (once it's finished) and a spot in the beta before that day.

I'm about to do so, what about you? Donate for a good cause?
