There is some good news for those that have been waiting for a sequel to Psychonauts, personally one of my all time favourite games.
Double Fine Productions have announced that Psychonauts 2 is currently planned for a 2018 release and is seeking $3,3 million in crowdfunding help on Fig, although they will be putting a “big chunk of money” into the project. It was also announced that the game would make use of the Unreal Engine 4, which would help them focus more on the game than the tech.
Tim Shafer the Creative Director at Double Fine Productions also revealed that the game is in the early pre-production stage and that Portal writer Erik Wolpaw (who wrote on the original Psychonauts) would also contribute to Psychonauts 2. Double Fine is also planning to bring back the original voice actors.
This is an announcement that I have been looking forward too for years.
Below is the crowdfunding teaser:
