Double Fine Productions is an American video game developer founded in July 2000 by Tim Schafer after his departure from LucasArts. After several months of working on the demo for what would become Psychonauts, a mixture of personnel from the Grim Fandango development team and other new employees were slowly added to begin production. They are perhaps most well known for the development of Psychonauts and Brütal Legend. Tim Schafer hired Ron Gilbert, who is currently developing The Cave. The company is based in San Francisco.
