Why Doublefine is the greatest game company ever

As many of you may know Doublefine is a videogame company who’s work includes Psychonauts and Brutal Legend. They are critically acclaimed and more importantly totally badass.

When I was in high school Psychonauts had just been released and my friend Conley and I were big fans. We wrote them a letter praising their awesomeness and asking if we could visit their San Fransisco studio. It may have helped that with the letter we included a batch of homemade cookies, but they said yes.

The visit was amazing and they even bought us a pair tickets to a guided tour of Alcatraz.

 Several years pass without further contact. But then I got really sick. I was eventually diagnosed with Hydrocephalus, a brain disease (IHC had an article on it last year). I underwent two brain surgeries in about 5 months that were all around  unsuccessful. As I prepared to go in for my 3rd I got a mysterious package.

In it was pile of Doublefine swag and a hand drawn card by Scott C. that was signed by the entire Doublefine staff. I hadn’t spoken with these guys in years yet they found out what was going on and went out of their way to brighten my day.

So yeah, buy their games.

    Pssshhhhhhh… Yeah, they’re nice, but they’re also a monarchy ruled by King Schafer, and they don’t have a spotless track...
