Is it okay for a grown man to get excited over a Sesame Street game? Actually: Don’t care! If you’ve got that much of a problem with me blowing my load over a “kids game,” I’ll get to work on making a kid immediately so I can enjoy the hell out of whatever this concept art takes shape as. LOOKY!
Above: The opposite of Below!
Should you, the staunchly hardcore gamer, be unmoved by the news, then know this: This Kinect title is coming to you from goddamned Double Fine, the imaginative developers who charmed your pants off with Psychonauts, Costume Quest and Brutal Legend. I’ve gone above and beyond the call of duty to impress upon you readers my unbridled love for all things Jim Henson/Muppet, so I hope you’ll believe me when I say that with its pedigree for cartoonish humor and lovable characters, there’s simply no developer working today better suited to bringing these timeless creatures to life.
Says Double Fine President and CEO Tim Schafer:
”Sesame Street had a profound effect on me, and many members of the Double Fine team, when we were children. So did video games.”
Me too! I’ve said this before in a million handwritten letters, but Tim, we should totally hang out sometime. Two awesome dudes, just sitting around talking Muppets and video games… Awesome! Either way, I’m gonna get started on making a child immediately, so I can enjoy this with my offspring by the time Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster hits Kinect in Autumn of 2011. Man, I can’t wait to get home… my girlfriend has no idea what’s coming!
