Clearing out more of the didn’t-get-posted-in-the-GDC-frenzy archives: Double Fine has finally made good for the legions begging ex-LucasArts designer/DF founder Tim Schafer to make a new point-and-click adventure with Host Master & The Conquest of Humor.

In fantastic double-plus-meta fashion, video of the game — which takes place in the minutes leading up to the Game Developer Choice Awards as Schafer scrambles for jokes he hasn’t yet written — was used to lead in the actual Game Developer Choice Awards, as the real life Schafer was backstage basking in the glow of his own green room portrait.
