The next Humble Bundle gets amnesia courtesy of Double Fine

Double Fine is embracing its role as social video-gaming champion, and giving the public the chance to vote on what games it makes next.

Craig was sucked into the endless vortex of tech at an early age, only to be spat back out babbling things like "phase-locked-loop crystal oscillators!". Mostly this receives a pat on the head from the listener, followed closely by a question about what laptop they should buy.

After its amazingly successful Kickstarter that, well, kickstarted the Kickstarter craze, Double Fine is experimenting once more.

This time, it's Humble Bundle that will get the attention, as Double Fine pitches 23 games at the public as part of its "Amnesia Fortnight", with four to ultimately win and be made.

Amnesia Fortnight has previously been an internal activity, in which Double Fine employees got two weeks to forget what they were doing to work on brand new game concepts — and it has given birth to most of the company's recent games.

There are more details, but the thing is, we can never match the inimitable Tim Schafer's own sublime delivery:

Contributors will be able to watch the development process as it happens, and, as with all Humble Bundles, it's a pay-what-you-want affair, with the contributor able to split the funds between Double Fine, Child's Play and Humble Inc.
