Double Fine Gets Emotional About Game Rights

Licio Lucchesi once told Michael Corleone "It's not personal, it's only business," but there is a personal element to the report on Polygon saying Double Fine wants to acquire back the distribution rights for Costume Quest and Stacking, with studio head Tim Schafer telling them of the developer's "emotional attachment" to the games. The studio owns the IP for each game, so sequel are not a problem, but Nordic Games secured the distribution rights for the originals in the THQ fire sale. "It's not, like, a lot of money; it's mostly for us to just tidy up things," Schafer told Polygon. "And also an emotional attachment more of a mission of Double Fine to own everything that we make. It's, like, this loose end that kind of bothers me that we'd like to tie up."

Best to keep emotion out of business when you can.

If they wanted them, they should have bid more on them lol.
This is only for the console distribution of the current games, so I don't much care.

Also, by publicly saying they are emotionally attached and want the rights, they probably just doubled whatever the selling price would have been.

The auction was bundles of stuff. They would have had to pay for many things they were not interested in just to get their publishing rights back.

That's what the article is about.

"...all this money..."

Might be like $5. They didn't say how much Nordic Games want for publishing rights for those 2 small titles.
