As you may have heard, Psychonauts 2
is in development after a successful crowdfunding campaign
. As the Fig campaign was closing, Tim Schafer - mastermind behind the original Psychonauts
- and Double Fine showed some art ideas for the game, as well as discussing story ideas.
First we have the "Art Jam" featurette that shows some possible ideas that Double Fine warns may or may not make it to the final game, so don't get too attached to any of the ideas. If you don't want to be spoiled by anything at all, you might not want to watch this either.
In another video, Schafer talks about the basic story idea for Psychonauts 2
. This includes spoilers for the original, so if you haven't played the original yet and don't want to be spoiled, avoid this one.
In an answer on an AMA (Ask Me Anything for those that don't know) that you can read in full here
, Schafer says similar things about the story. Again, those that do not want to be spoiled should avoid, but he also mentions that he has more ideas for brains and mechanics.Psychonauts 2
is currently scheduled to release on Xbox One in 2018.
