Paying $16.74 or more also gets you Spacebase DF-9 (Early Access Game), the sci-fi simulation game based on the Amnesia Fortnight 2012 prototype.
Buyers of this weekly sale can also choose where their money goes: to the developer, Double Fine, and/or to two great causes, Child’s Play Charity and Electronic Frontier Foundation.With your help, we’ve raised more than $30 million for charity!What’s this Amnesia Fortnight hoo-ha everyone’s all talking about?Amnesia Fortnight is an internal game jam started by Double Fine in 2007 as a behind-the-closed-doors-of-the-chocolate-factory kind of a deal, but have now exposed to the public whether they want it or not!
Here’s how it works: Double Fine takes two weeks off from whatever they’re working on, splits the company into small teams and gives each team two weeks to make a game. It’s not easy or fair; but it is exciting. It is done to test out new ideas, and to test out new project leaders who feel ready to have a project of their own. Some of these project leaders will live, and the others, well, they will also live. But they will NEVER BE THE SAME.
