Double Fine Reacquires Rights To Costume Quest And Stacking


Nordic Games has handed the rights for Costume Quest and Stacking back to Double Fine. The indie dev has released the hit game Psychonauts, and they plan to release retail versions of all three (Costume Quest, Stacking, and Psychonauts) on PC and Mac in North America and Europe in the first half of 2014.

Nordic Games handed the rights back to Double Fine with no issues, and  Klemens Kreuzer, Managing Director at Nordic Games, stated that they “support the right of independent developers to control their own distribution, and…were pleased to have the opportunity to work with Double Fine.”

Tim Schafer, President and CEO of Double Fine, being his typical silly self stated the following, “I am pleased that we have regained full control over Costume Quest and Stacking, following a daring and top-secret midnight raid on the Nordic Games headquarters in Vienna.”
