Best of What's Next 2009: Tim Schafer (Double Fine) [Game Developer]

Hometown: San Francisco

The dementedly brilliant Tim Schafer is one of the few designers working in the games industry today who possesses a masterful grasp of technology, gameplay and writing—a trifecta clearly evident in the hilarious dialogue and bizarrely comedic environs of his game Psychonauts. Double Fine Productions—the studio he founded in July 2000, after leaving LucasArts—has demonstrated a penchant for risk, developing truly original titles steeped in Schafer’s blend of tongue-in-cheek humor, character-driven storytelling and innovative gameplay.
