Last Life is the next game to be “published” by Double Fine

Did you know Double Fine is now in the publishing game, sort of? The indie has elected to incubate other teams, assist them with promotion and distribution, and advise on development, apparently in order to help keep indies from “becoming the new casual”.

The first game it threw its support behind was Escape Goat 2, which is available now (and here’s a very funny launch trailer explaining Double Fine’s involvement). The second is Last Life, a three-part episodic noir adventure set on Mars.

Currently seeking $75,000 on Kickstarter, Last Life stars a detective brought back to life to solve his own murder (something of a recurring theme, all of a sudden).

“It’s an adventure game with a great look, an intriguing story and a crazy style. As soon as we saw it we loved it and we knew we wanted to get involved in any way that we could,” Tim Schafer said.

Tee-hee.
I like Tim Schafer’s dumb little videos.

 

I played the Escape Goat demo where it used JSIL, a .Net to Javascript compiler. It’s quite an addictive game. Came with an editor too.

 

Don’t they still have kickstarter games they should be working on?
