Gaming public to vote on ideas from Double Fine staff and Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward
Double Fine sent over a press release announcing the launch of Amnesia Fortnight 2014, the latest iteration of its two-week internal game jam, on Humble Bundle. Members of the public can now pay any amount for the chance to vote on dozens of ideas pitched by Double Fine staff members, with the top-ranked choices becoming two-week PC prototypes playable by contributors. Contributors decide the percentage that will go to charity. Buyers who beat the pay-what-you-want average will also get to vote for their favorite idea contributed by Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward, who will be serving as a project lead on site at Double Fine over the course of the two-week jam.
The whole jam will be chronicled in a video documentary created by 2 Player Productions, the team behind the Kickstarter-funded Double Fine Adventure documentary as well as 2012's Amnesia Fortnight documentary.
Amnesia Fortnight has generated many of the studio's game ideas over the past five years, including Spacebase DF-9, Hack 'n' Slash, Costume Quest, Stacking and more.
