Brutal Legend 2 scrapped, Tim Schaffer to work on "indie-style" games for foreseeable future

During a talk at the 2010 Develop Conference in Brighton, England, Double Fine headman and video game developer legend Tim Schafer said his studio now has four projects in development and none of them is Brutal Legend 2.

He admitted the company is working on "indie-style" games, which may be downloadable. Schafer's video game output has rarely failed to impress critics, but sales have sometimes been lower than expected.

Schafer said the "indie approach" will let them play with different demographics which should give them "more chances at having a hit game."

Brutal Legend was a disaster. Even at $5 dollars retail price, no one still wants to pick it up.

rroded3073d ago

mp aint for everyone sure but its there for those who do

The dialogue was great and the story was awesome. The RTS stuff was a little out of place but his orders were hilarious. Jack Black killed it (in a good way).

Brutal Legend was super awesome except for the RTS elements which felt weird.

I have to disagree. I paid $60 for this game when it came out, and i fully loved it.

NonApplicable3073d ago

Heh, it was only scrapped because it sold poorly. It only sold poorly because it didn't have enough of that "Schaffer Magic".

Zydake3073d ago

Aw man I loved that game. One of the greatest games I played.

That's three words. Just sayin'.

Does 2 count as a word? I see it as 2 words and a number really. Just sayin' ;)

Lombax3073d ago

Dude still has a good point.

Just saiyan...

I was shocked that I was able to pick it up new for $15. Made me kinda sad because I'm a huge Tim Schafer fan. Grim Fandango is, in my opinion, the best adventure game ever made.

Haven't played through Brutal Legend yet as I've got a lot on my plate at the moment but I'm very much looking forward to giving this a go.

Lmao which Saiyan are you talking about? Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Broly, Goten, or Trunks...?

Brutal Legend was a great game but it got released with many AAA games comeing out at that time

Mirrors Edge shouldn't have come out during the holidays, they should have saved it for spring. Same goes for Brutal Legend. Maybe then we would be getting some freakin squeals, those morons...
