Develop 2010: Tim Schafer talks new games, Brutal Legend 2

Double Fine to work on small "indie-style" games for foreseeable future

During a talk at the 2010 Develop Conference in Brighton, England, Double Fine headman and video game developer legend Tim Schafer said his studio now has four projects in development and none of them is Brutal Legend 2.

The cancellation of Brutal Legend 2 came about through the publisher's decision (not Schafer's). Afterward, his team split into four groups each working on "indie-style" games. Later, Double Fine shopped these projects around to publishers and now all four have been signed.

Further details on the four projects are hazy -- as reported by GameSpot, Schafer hinted that we may see some of them this year in disc or downloadable form. He also dropped hints as to the variety in game genres, saying that the indie approach let them play with different demographics which should give them "more chances at having a hit game."

Schafer's video game output has rarely failed to impress critics, but sales have sometimes been lower than expected. Hopefully, a low cost strategy will translate to plenty of profits and more AAA titles in the future.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
