So with the help of Humble Bundle and the documentary folks at 2-Player Productions, Double Fine is letting the public in on Amnesia Fortnight, their annual two week game jam where they drop whatever current project they're doing to brainstorm and prototype new game ideas. Past Amnesia Fortnight projects have gone on to become Costume Quest, Stacking and Once Upon A Monster.

Currently, voting is open on 23 different pitches to narrow them down to the top four, which will go on to be the projects worked on over the next two weeks. You can buy in, Humble Bundle style, to get the 4 "finished" prototypes plus the prototype versions of Costume Quest and Happy Song (later Once Upon A Monster).

My favourites are Black Lake (which is sadly 6th) and Spacebase(which luckily is 1th).

Also, its amusing to recognize people(like Greg and Red robot guy) from DBA document videos and production updates tongue

I kinda like The Flock. Could be because I really like flying or because I like animals but moving south and witnessing joy and tragedy on the way there seems like fun.

Yeah, those were my other favourites, pretty much.
That space station game seem pretty interesting allow me to quote the primary draw

Me Too I thought it would be a something like a more serious psychonauts and I thought Hack and slash sounded novel enough. Zelda + Gamehacking and Cheating

AND THE Voting Has Ended.

Hack and Slash, Space Base DF-9, The White Birch, And Autonomous will be the ideas that will be prototyped.

They will be live streaming the process Starting at 2pm PST here.

Also 2 player Productions ( the people behind the Double Fine Adventure Documentary) Will be posting a video each day so you can see these ideas come together.

While i am sad that Black lake and Bragging and fighting didn't get in I have high hopes for these prototypes.

Yay.

I didn't vote on the initial pitch round; I couldn't commit to picking anything just based on the quick pitches. Very interested in watching them develop though.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
