Watch Tim Schafer talking about Psychonauts, Kickstarter and eating clowns

Double Fine founder Tim Schafer sat down with Polygon this week to discuss the company's history of experimental financing, their good fortune with Amnesia Fortnight projects and lots and lots of other things.

Among the topics of the free-ranging, more than 30 minute conversation were Double Fine's future, what Schafer would want to do with a future Psychonauts project and why exclusive Kickstarter backer updates don't always make sense for a game publisher.
