Any ideas or speculation? :)

From The Edge interview (http://www.edge-online.co.uk/archives/2005/10/faq_tim_schafer_1.php)

What projects are you working on at the moment?
Secret! New stuff!

From Double fine blog (http://www.doublefine.com/news.htm) :P

Yes, we are working on a new game, duh. Of course! What do you think we're going to be doing? After we read and answer all our fan mail, we still have at least 45 minutes left each day that we have to kill somehow. So we decided to make a game. Can I tell you anything about it? No effing way. It's so secret, it hurts. But it's probably the raddest thing that I have ever seen. Seriously, it's so amazingly awesome that every time I look at it I get a little teary-eyed. I think I'm in love with it. I think I'm going to make out with it. I think I want to kill it a bear. I think I want to carve it's name into my chest with broken glass, I love it so much.

But I can't tell you about that.

PS Congrats Tim on your marriage!!!

"Kill a Bear"... as guessed earlier Tim may be secretly coding his blog... I think it may be a game about hunting. Or being a bear.

Let's think. There was a lot of love and making out and Psychonauts, you could kill bears, and carving is an analogy to carving it into a tree.

PEOPLE WE ARE DEALING WITH VERNON: THE GAME.

You don't understand. This is a conspiracy.

alliespixie
11-19-2005, 11:34 AM
how is it a conspiracy besides the fact if the game does come out we would have to indure boring stories.

KingCheez
11-19-2005, 11:38 AM
It's quite obvious. (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=155641)

Kill a bear? Carve things? Those are all things you do at a camp.

alliespixie
11-19-2005, 11:45 AM
true at a normal camp we're talking abput a psychic camp not just a normal summer camp.

DarthAve

I wonder what it is.....I hope it's somthing worse than Psychonauts, so I don't have to find a new obsession in this new game.

alliespixie
11-19-2005, 07:56 PM
true

DarthAve
11-19-2005, 09:28 PM
I know.

alliespixie

I hope it doesn't take seven years to finish.

DarthAve
11-27-2005, 12:09 AM
Yes, but it still shall be awesome.

alliespixie
11-27-2005, 12:50 AM

DarthAve

I hope this one has knight in it.

i hope they don't ruin sasha

90SK
11-27-2005, 10:07 PM
Kinda hard to ruin him, unless they go all crazy and distort his character. They won't though. Game makers value their creations.

alliespixie
11-27-2005, 10:08 PM
yes

Smon

Unless like... in the game he gets hit with drugs or something.

DarthAve
11-28-2005, 11:06 AM
Now all I can imagine is Tim in a dark corner shootin' up a video game with steroids. It's weird.

alliespixie
11-28-2005, 04:01 PM
nice image darth at least your not thinking about milla and sasha in the 70s when drugs where legal.

DarthAve
11-28-2005, 04:22 PM
Now I can imagine Sasha in a dark corner, shootin up himself with steroids. and Milla in a bathroom, throwing up.

Smon

Hm... maybe they met all American Dad style, a stuffy organized spy gets assigned to a mission with rebel, annd SPLAT. They run over a racoon, Sasha pities it and asks the driver of the river styx to skip a few- OH HE SHOT IT IN THE EYE.

And that's how they met.

DarthAve
11-28-2005, 04:25 PM
Wow, weird. Who wants to discuss cheese? It's so delicious, but not swiss. Swiss is all holey, like someone already started to nibble at it.

alliespixie
11-28-2005, 04:26 PM
you can get swiss without holes

DarthAve
11-28-2005, 04:35 PM

DarthAve
11-28-2005, 04:41 PM
Dang, luckilly, I have her hair, to be cloned.

alliespixie
11-28-2005, 04:44 PM
you were going to clone me,why?

DarthAve
11-28-2005, 04:57 PM
I need a friend to be there for me at the best of times, :songsmile
or the worst times, :barf2:

Someone to give gifts to, :gift:
Or someone to kill, :axe1:

I just need a friend.

alliespixie
11-28-2005, 04:59 PM

DarthAve
11-28-2005, 05:01 PM
Sweetness, you like the smilie thing I added to the speech.

90SK
11-28-2005, 08:06 PM
Aquaman was a good guess.

alliespixie
11-28-2005, 08:07 PM
how would you get aquaman, i thought he was blue

DarthAve
11-28-2005, 08:50 PM
Aquaman is greenish blue duh! I'm thinking of changing to Solara. You'd get a kick out of her.

shinzuku
11-28-2005, 08:59 PM

She said it was Hazmat.

alliespixie

11-29-2005, 02:01 AM

Lemme see: it's gonna be like the Zoo , on acid. But creepy, dark under tones. Like the Hell Zoo, Galactic Zoo in Hell! Bwahahaha. That's totally gonna be it, and if it's not, it should be.

You can get your crazy hippy dream flying - but what happens in Double Fine, stays in Double Fine - unless you have an insider.

Game info will change.

Conspiracy?

It's set in stone.

alliespixie

okay cheez, now you're just plainly odd

sjack
06-11-2006, 04:59 PM
I haven't checked this forum in a while or been keeping up to date on news. Has Double Fine leaked any more hints about what they're working on?

DarthAve
06-12-2006, 12:00 AM
No. Late time I checked, there was another picture of another cute kitten.


Maybe this new game has somthing to do with kittens, and these kittens are secretly leaked hints....

Yes... Wonderful theory.

I thought I would bump this back up.
I was just at the Double Fine web site and saw they were looking for quite a number of new employees. One could deduce that either there were mass layoffs and now they need to fill the positions or...
I'm an optimist (or at least I hope I am) and wonder if this means they're in production on The Next Big Tim Schafer Game and need more personnel.
In the description for the Game Tester they mention it'd be for about 5 months or longer. Could this mean a new game in the Autumn of '08?

I'm working on a fan site for it to go up at http://www.brutallegend.net/.

I just saw that in the News section on his site.

I'm okay now. Really I am.
