Rumor: Tim Schafer's next game revealed?

timschaferLast week, we ran a story that Tim Schafer and Double Fine Productions are working on a new game but have been holding out on the announcement. On fan site The International House of Mojo, they have the word of the new game but have since taken the story down. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the information turns out to be true.

According to the story, the game is called Brutal Legend and will feature actor Jack Black as the main character, a Rock n’ Roll roadie who dies and ends up in Hell. A puzzle/strategy game ensues and looks like the game will feature multiple controllable characters. In addition, heavy metal will be a heavy influence in the game.

Still, the article has been pulled and Schafer said, "The whole thing was a lie. What I’m really working on is Zak McKracken 2 for the PSP." Zak McKracken was a 1988 LucasArts adventure game, but we’ll see because it looks like Schafer’s next game will be announced at the Leipzig Games Convention next week.
