Double Fine are keen to acquire the distribution rights to some of the titles that Nordic Games recently picked up from the fallen THQ.
Namely, the games they developed: Costume Quest and Stacking. In an interview with Game Informer, CEO of the studio Tim Schafer said they are currently looking into getting these two properties back home:
“We’re still trying to get the rights to Costume Quest and Stacking. We can still make more of those games. We still have the IP, but we’d love to have all of the IP and distribution rights in house.”
Schafer also confirmed that the developer is eager to get Brütal Legend and Iron Brigade from Microsoft. In the cut-throat environment, having full rights to your properties has never seemed so evident as it does now. Personally speaking, Brütal Legend isn’t a title I’d be excited to see again, but Costume Quest and particularly Stacking were very interesting ideas and ones I’d love to see revisited by Double Fine.
