Video Scoop: Tim Schafer and Cookie Monster Collaborate

Gentle reader, prepare to be delighted.

Below, you will find a new video from the WB Games YouTube channel, showing the genesis of Double Fine’s Sesame Street:¬†Once Upon a Monster. Without spoiling anything, this video shows how great of a match Tim Schafer is with the Sesame Street crew.

I know that this barely qualifies as news, but it’s worth pointing out when a game company gets its messaging right. Double Fine is going after the small “gamer dads who have fond memories of Sesame Street” demographic, and they nail it. I don’t have kids, but I’m contemplating adopting a few so I can play this game without ending up on a government list.

Once Upon a Monster releases October 11, and it’s exclusive to the Xbox 360 (and the Kinect).
