A New Adventure Game from Tim Schafer?

So it seems that Tim Schafer's Double Fine is considering producing a classic-style point-and-click adventure game.  Because the genre has been commercially dead for a while, they've opted to start by raising pledges of $400,000 via Kickstarter -- and they're up to about $1.6 million already.  Seems a lot of people would love to see something new from one of Lucasarts' adventure game greats, and Double Fine has established its own solid reputation as a purveyor of quirky, funny, and fun-to-play games.  And this new downloadable gaming era makes distribution, duplication, and marketing costs much easier to deal with.  No word yet on what the game will be, but it's looking like this just may happen.

Seems there may be a bit of a point-and-click renaissance in the air.  Woo-hoo!
