    I know many of you remember with hugely fond memories the classic point and click adventure games.
    Remember how awesome it was finally working out that you had to switch the flags in the spitting contest on Monkey Island 2
    Or going back in time in Day of the Tentacle to convince George Washington to cut down a cherry tree to change the future.

    So many brilliant P&C games which sadly have become a thing of the past.

    Double Fine aim to change that and what's more, they plan to film the whole development process.

    If you want to be a part of this you can help fund them from only $15 which guarantees you a finished copy, PC beta and access to the development forums to give your input.

    They were aiming for $400k and have already hit $1.26M so it's going ahead.

    If you want to be part of this potential throwback to some of the finest games I've ever played head over to and pledge.
    There are some sweet bonuses depending on amount you pledge, such as custom art, posters and there was a lunch with the team + more that went for $1k :O

    Well worth a look and a good investment if you like classic adventures.

    Glad they got the money to go through with it. Just hope they have the humour to pull of a decent point and click.

    Too many games these days use toilet humour instead of intelligent humour as its base.

    Don't know if you've played psychonauts or not, but that was funny in a really weird triply sense. Double fine made that.

    Also it's Tim Schafer behind it who actually did Day of the Tentacle, Grim Fandango & Full Throttle. So rest assured he knows his P&C adventure games.

    Quite excited to see this finished (they are aiming for end of this year. (6 months))

    Definitely worth keeping an eye on even if you're not pledging anything.

    Only brought up the comedy part due to a older colleague stumping me at work on a question about British comedy duos.
