You can vote on Double Fine's Amnesia Fortnight 2014 games

Double Fine Productions is opening up its annual internal two-week game jam, Amnesia Fortnight, to the public again this year through the Humble Bundle website, the studio announced today.

Amnesia Fortnight, which Double Fine started doing in 2007, is a period during which everyone at the studio stops what they're doing and breaks off into small teams to develop games in two weeks. A number of Double Fine's recent games, including Costume Quest, Stacking and Spacebase DF-9, originated as Amnesia Fortnight prototypes.

Double Fine began asking fans to vote on Amnesia Fortnight projects in 2012: People can spend a minimum of $1 to vote on the ideas that get prototyped, and watch them being developed in documentary videos made by 2 Player Productions. Donors can split their contributions between Double Fine, Child's Play and the Humble Bundle organization.

This year, Amnesia Fortnight has a special guest project leader: Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward, who did voice-over work for Broken Age. Contributors who pay more than the average will be able to vote on four prototypes that will be overseen by Ward himself. There are 29 standard prototypes from Double Fine developers. Those who contribute to Amnesia Fortnight will receive all the 2012 prototypes and the 2014 prototypes, which will be available on Windows PC. Amnesia Fortnight ends at 3 p.m. ET on Feb. 13.

The Humble Weekly Sale also features Double Fine this week. People can name their price for Psychonauts, Costume Quest and Stacking. If they pay at least $6, they'll also receive Brutal Legend, and if they pay at least $16.74, they'll get a copy of Spacebase DF-9, which is currently available as a Steam Early Access title. The sale ends at 2 p.m. ET on Feb. 13.
