Every year, the developers at Double Fine have a little shindig that goes by the name of Amnesia Fortnight where they have two weeks to prototype their dream game. But this year Double Fine is letting the public decide what games get prototyped. Double Fine has teamed up with Humble Bundle to launch a website devoted to this year’s Amnesia Fortnight. On the site, gamers can vote on which of the 23 ideas they find most interesting and also donate money to the project. This bundle operates just like every other Humble Bundle where some of the money goes to the Humble Bundle, the developer, and to charity and the customer gets to choose how much goes where. The four ideas that get the most votes will be prototyped by Double Fine, which will then live stream the four teams during their two-week development phases. And to sweeten the deal those that donate at least a dollar will receive access to all four completed prototypes, along with two prototypes from previous years: Happy Song and Costume Quest. Happy Song eventually became Once Upon a Monster. Unfortunately the prototypes are only available for PC gamers so Linux and Mac gamers beware. That being said I’m extremely excited to see what games are chosen and what they eventually become.
