Double Fine's Amnesia Fortnight 2017 Jams On Over at Humble Bundle

Folks can head over to Humble Bundle to vote on the latest small project from the minds at Double Fine.

Double Fine's Amnesia Fortnight is back again this year! If you haven't heard of the event before, every year the folks at Double Fine break away from what they're doing, come up with a bunch of small game ideas, have fans vote on the best one, and then they go to work making them into playable prototypes! Previous Amnesia Fortnight's have resulted in Costume Quest, Stacking, and Hack n' Slash.

This year, the event is being handled by Humble Bundle. Folks can pick up the Amnesia Fortnight 2017 Humble Bundle before this Friday, which will allow them to vote on which games will comprise this year's winners. There are 25 proposed projects for 2017, all of which you can find in this YouTube playlist.

Here's a few of my preferred concepts from the list of trailers.

The Gods Must Be Hungry - This treads a lot of the same ground as the upcoming Battle Chef Brigade, but a cooking game with shades of Attack on Titan? I have to give that a thumbs-up.

Kiln - A team-based brawler where players have to craft their fighters on the fly via a pottery wheel. I dig it and it sounds like it could be fun in concept.

Liz Miserable - A musical adventure game! This one is amibitious, because making great songs is hard and making great songs that can be changed on the fly is harder. Set crafted in real life and music from Austin Wintory? I'm down. That said, this feels like one of the titles that Double Fine will pick on its own.

Fresh - Hip-hop dancing game! Instant win.

Voting will end on April 7 at 10am PST, with Double Fine moving forward on the two projects with the highest vote count and two other projects picked by Double Fine boss Tim Schafer and the studio as a whole. All four projects will be developed into prototypes over the course of two weeks from April 12 - April 25.

2 Player Productions will be filming a daily video documentary of the entire process, just like they have for previous Amnesia Fortnights.
