Double Fines Next Game is Sesame Street for Kinect

Since the decision came from a publisher to not proceed with a sequel to Brutal Legend, Double Fine has been focusing on smaller projects like Costume Quest and Stacking. Its next game is much different than either of those two; rather than come up with another new IP, Double Fine is teaming up with Warner Bros to produce a new Sesame Street game titled Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster for Kinect.
"It’s great to be working with Warner Bros., especially on a game like Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster, which brings together so many things we all care about," said Double Fine CEO Tim Schafer. "Sesame Street had a profound effect on me, and many members of the Double Fine team, when we were children. So did video games. Now many of us are parents and we want to share with our kids the great experiences we had, but also the completely new ones made possible by cutting-edge technology like Kinect for Xbox 360. So it’s a labor of love on many levels."

The game is described as a "truly original interactive experience" that tells the story of players joining classic Sesame Street characters to explore the titular storybook Once Upon a Monster. Players will interact with the game through activities like dancing, jumping, and flying. Warner Bros. announced last month that it would be producing a Sesame Street game that would use motion controls.

A licensed game like this is a first for Double Fine, a company that’s probably best known for Psychonauts. The game will also be aimed at a much different demographic than previous titles, so it should be interesting to see how it turns out. It was not specified if this would be a retail or downloadable title. When announcing that it had four titles in the works last July, Schafer stated that some would be downloadable and others would be retail -- this could very well end up falling in the latter category when it’s released this fall.
