Double Fine acquires rights to Costume Quest and Stacking IPs

Costume Quest and Stacking are once again the property of creators Double Fine.

The studio has signed an agreement with Nordic Games, which acquired the distribution rights to the pair from THQ earlier this year, that will see both games – along with fellow Double Fine property Psychonauts – released physically on PC and Mac in the first half of 2014.

"We can’t wait to partner with Double Fine for this upcoming retail launch of three of its most excellent games," Nordic Games owner and CEO Lars Wingefors stated.

"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."

Double Fine business development VP Justin Bailey added: "Double Fine is dedicated to controlling its own IP, and we will continue working to bring all associated rights back in-house whenever possible, no matter how many split-second security system hacks or painstaking tunnelling operations we have to execute."
