Double Fine promotes Escape Goat 2 in amusing new trailer

Double Fine has released a hilarious new trailer for Escape Goat 2. The game was developed by MagicalTimeBean in one of Double Fine's spare offices. The rest of the tale is best summed up by the trailer itself:

The puzzle platformer is a sequel to 2011's Escape Goat.

MagicalTimeBean's Ian Stocker had this to say: "When I first started this project, it was really just an experiment to see how Escape Goat would look with high res art. I never imagined it would come this far, launching along with a nod of approval and publishing support from Double Fine."

A blogpost on Double Fine's web page went on to explain:

The game’s final weeks of development were completed at the Double Fine Productions offices in San Francisco as part of the Indie Omega Jam.

“Wait, what has been going on?” questioned Double Fine Founder and CEO Tim Schafer in the midst of a Broken Age Act 2 writing stupor. “Does this have something to do with the people that broke into the office and stole a bunch of our computers a while back?”

“Actually I told Ian they could use our now totally secure spare office space while we weren’t using it.” said an amiable Justin Bailey, COO of Double Fine. “And security cameras have since confirmed that the MagicalTimeBean developers were just enjoying the many fine amenities and services that Double Fine has to offer and had nothing to do with the recent thefts at Double Fine Headquarters.”

“This has been totally awesome!” remarked an overly excited Greg Rice, Double Fine’s Senior Publishing Manager. “It’s super rad to be surrounded by other independent developers who are making cool stuff and are passionate about what they are doing. I’m really glad we could help them out and hope we can do this with more developers in the future!”

“I guess that IS pretty cool.” said a suddenly agreeable Tim Schafer. “I get to take credit for everything though, right?”

Escape Goat 2 is currently available on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux. The game is normally $9.99, but is 10% off for the rest of the week, bringing the price down to $8.99.

Gaming sure does love goats these days.
