Tim Schafer Pitches Storybook Game With Zombies

on July 12, 2011 3:00 PM

One aspect of video games that people don’t often get to see is the initial pitch from which we get the games we all know and love. It’s fun to imagine what the pitch might have entailed. “Russian stacking dolls, murder and intrigue” or “Monday Night Combat + Tower Defense + Chromehounds” come to mind as two possibilities. Well wonder no more, as Tim Schafer has released a video entailing the pitch of the latest Double Fine game; Once Upon a Monster. The video is pretty entertaining, and actually gives a little insight as to what we’ll be doing in the game (besides hanging out with Elmo, which should be enough damn it!), check it out after the break.
