Double Fine Productions Regains Rights to “Stacking” and “Costume Quest”

Today, Double Fine (along with Nordic Games) announced that they would be releasing retail versions of three popular titles again for PC and Mac: Psychonauts, Costume Quest, and Stacking. These retail versions should be released in the first half of 2014.

Another worthy note is that Double Fine now has full distribution rights to their titles Costume Quest and Stacking, which they lost the rights to after the THQ auction.

“I am pleased that we have regained full control over Costume Quest and Stacking, following a daring and top-secret midnight raid on the Nordic Games headquarters in Vienna,” Double Fine CEO Tim Schafer said in a press release.

Nordic CEO Lars Wingefors cleared the air in the same release: “We can’t wait to partner with Double Fine for this upcoming retail launch of three of its most excellent games. However, I feel compelled to point out that we were happy to transfer distribution rights for Costume Quest and Stacking back to Double Fine in an entirely non-secretive and heist-free manner.”
