Tim Schafer’s writing routine

The latest Double Fine Adventure update1 was pretty fantastic, documenting the beginning of the process of creating an adventure game.

Schafer gets up in the morning and freewrites longhand in a spiral lined notebook as a way of getting over the blank page and getting out all the crummy ideas. It’s pretty great seeing all of his old notebooks—if you click the third picture, you can see a list of names Schafer was brainstorming for Grim Fandango.


  1. For Kickstarter backers only, though they have a “slacker backer" option that will let you watch these videos.
