Double Fine Productions, the studio behind PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 downloadables Costume Quest and Stacking, founded by Tim Schafer of Monkey Island and Psychonauts fame, is developing a Sesame Street game for Xbox 360 Kinect, due between September and November 2011.
"Sesame Street had a profound effect on me, and many members of the Double Fine team, when we were children. So did video games. Now many of us are parents and we want to share with our kids the great experiences we had," said Schafer in a statement to the press.
While Warner Bros. is to publish Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster, another of Double Fine's publishing partners is also preparing a long-established childrens' series for video game release, with a 2011 title based on Voltron expected during a similar release window, and a 2012 title tying in with TV's upcoming Voltron Force.
