UPDATED 2:40pm -- Well, it looks like we weren't the only ones eager to put the pieces together. Thanks to the eagle eyed folks over at Segabits (via My Nintendo News), we now know who will be publishing whatever this Double Fine game ends up being: none other than Sega. What do you know about that?
Original story follows:
Over the past week, Double Fine’s Ron Gilbert started posting pictures of characters from his upcoming mystery project, and yesterday, the final piece was revealed in the form of a picture of The Knight.
After scrolling through the pictures on Gilbert’s Grumpy Gamer website, we noticed the edges of some of the pictures seemed to match up (which isn’t terribly surprising considering we put together an actual puzzle a few weeks back that was sent to various outlets to tease the game’s upcoming reveal). Sure enough, we were right, as you can see from the above image we pieced together using plutonium-enriched algorithmic cyclotron emitters (aka a standard photo editing program).
We still don’t know anything about the game itself, but hopefully we’ll hear something between now and E3. Gilbert did just tweet: "THURSDAY! THURSDAY! THURSDAY! Sorry, I just like shouting out days of the week for no good reason. No reason at all. Nope. None." Between that and the character reveals, it certainly seems some sort of reveal is incoming.
For now though, enjoy imagining what this kooky collection of characters are doing inside that spooky underground setting. Could this end up being our first glimpse at The Cave, which Double Fine trademarked back in February? Time will tell I guess.
