The Original Psychonauts was a brilliant game that is regarded as one of the best 3D platformers of all time. The game’s voice acting and story were ahead of it’s time, and even the graphics, though not as gorgeous as most of the stuff that comes out these days still looks great even today. It is for these reasons why many fans of the original game have been wanting a sequel of this 2005 gem. As of today there is no squeal for the game, YET, but developer; Double Fine Productions have started a crowd funding campaign to fund a sequel, which as of this article is already more than half funded with 37 days to go. That alone is a good indication to us that this game is getting made, and we can’t wait to experience all it has to offer.
Double fine are planning to make Psychonauts 2 a multi-platform title for Windows, Mac, PS4, Xbox, and Linux. The game is also set to have English voice acting, and multiple languages for the interface and subtitles (French, Spanish, Italian, and German). Psychonaits 2 has an estimated release date for the game is Fall 2018, and will be a platformer similar to the original.
