See what Tim Schafer is doing with all your (his) money

Gaming is in its golden age, and big and small players alike are maneuvering like kings and queens in A Game of Thrones. Register now for our GamesBeat 2015 event, Oct. 12-Oct.13, where we'll explore strategies in the new world of gaming.

Remember that time game maker Tim Schafer asked for $400,000 on Kickstarter and the world gave him $2.5 million? You might be wondering what he’s done with said riches, and how he’ll be putting them to good use. Last night Schafer provided the following images as inspiration for Cliff Bleszinksi, who took over hosting duties at this year’s Game Developers Choice Awards.

I’m not a game developer myself (yet), but as you can see, the images are more-or-less in line with the general expectation of how game studios operate.

For a deeper look at how the money will actually be spent, 2player Productions and Double Fine will be providing a documentary series on the making of Double Fine Adventure.
