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."
