Double Fine Productions has regained control of the Costume Quest and Stacking franchises. In their announcement, Double Fine will retain control of the game licenses while Nordic Games will be the retail release partner for both of the games as well as Psychonauts through the first half of 2014. Nordic Games’ CEO, Lars Wingefors, said they are happy with the agreement.
“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.”
Nordic Games had acquired the rights to Costume Quest and Stacking through the THQ bankruptcy auction in April.
