The Game Awards had one major surprise in store on Thursday night: Psychonauts 2. It’s (sort of) real. It’s (maybe) happening. It’s (kind of) all up to you now.
After years of fans asking for a sequel to the cult classic, Double Fine’s officially launched a crowdfunding campaign through Obsidian/Double Fine/InXile-backed funding platform Fig. A quick and dirty description, torn from the Fig page:
“In Psychonauts 2, Raz realizes his dream and visits Psychonauts Headquarters. However, when he gets there, he finds it’s not the perfect place he expected and quickly realizes that the Psychonauts need him more than he needs them.
Psychonauts 2 will feature a new hub world inside Psychonauts HQ. You’ll access new mental worlds as Raz peeks inside the minds of a host of new characters who need his help to combat their inner demons and unravel their deep-seated emotional issues. Raz will hone his secret agent PSI-abilities-and learn new ones too-using them to solve mysteries and uncover evil plots.”
