But the dev has still managed to ship the games anyway.
Tim Schafer, founder of Double Fine Productions, said this morning during his Develop keynote that each of the studio's games - Psychonauts and Brutal Legend - have been cancelled, but somehow the games still made it to retail.
"How are we still around?" said Schafer. The answer, according to Tim, is that both titles were quality products.
Schafer also said that many studios never get a second chance.
