Rejoice, Double Fine’s next project is the long-awaited Psychonauts 2, a sequel to a warmly received 3D platform video game from 2005, announced today at VGA. The new adventures of Razputin, a young adept of parapsychic powers (like mind reading), will take him to Psychonauts Headquarters, where the hero will have a great part to play toward the organization’s welfare. Psychonouts 2 is planned to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but to cool down your enthusiasm, this will not happen until Fall 2018.
The developers already started a crowdfunding campaign on Fig, where they asked fans for 3.3 million dollars. This isn’t the whole amount of money needed for the development, however, but the studio is willing to add to that from their own pockets, and the rest should come from investors. If you want to support the developers and grant yourself a digital copy of Psychonauts 2 (plus the first Psychonauts) on PC (Windows/Linux) or Mac, you should pledge at least $39 (as the 33-dollar tier was limited and is all now gone).
