In a YouTube update Double Fine's Tim Schaefer revealed that the company's next point and click adventure title will be available for Mac, Linux, and Windows PCs. The game is described as a "classic point-and-click adventure" and is currently in development as a Kickstarter project, with more details to be released in the coming months.

Over a six-to-eight month period, a small team under Tim Schafer's supervision will develop Double Fine's next game, a classic point-and-click adventure. Where it goes from there will unfold in real time for all the backers to see.

Player Productions will be documenting the creative process and releasing monthly video updates exclusively to the Kickstarter backers. This documentary series will strive to make the viewer as much a part of the process as possible by showing a game grow from start to finish, with all the passion, humor, and heartbreak that happens along the way. Double Fine is committed to total transparency with this project, ensuring it is one of the most honest depictions of game development ever conceived.

There will be a private online community set up for the backers to discuss the project with the devs and submit their thoughts and feelings about the game's content and direction, sometimes even voting on decisions when the dev team can't decide. Backers will also have access to help test the game once a beta is available. Once the game is finished, backers will receive the completed version in the available format of their choice.

For fans of adventure games, this is a chance to prove that there is still a large demand out there for a unique medium that inspired so many of us.

Their Kickstarter did incredibly well, as I'm sure most people have heard. With the buzz of Kickstarter combined with a call to arms for adventure games, they knocked it out of the park.

It does make me chuckle though- I think it wouldn't have done nearly so well if they had simply offered up the game as a preorder. "Preorder this adventure game based on no information whatsoever other than the names of two of the designers."
