'Psychonauts 2' (ALL) Announced, Launches Crowd Funding Campaign - Trailer

In Psychonauts 2, Raz will realize his dreams and visit the Psychonauts Headquarters as a fully established agent. But when he gets there he finds it's not the perfect place he expected, and he quickly realizes that the Psychonauts need him, more than he needs them...

Psychonauts was released in 2005 to much critical acclaim, and has since become a cult classic, with a huge fan base around the world.

The original game follows the story of a young psychic named Razputin in his quest to join an elite group of international psychic secret agents, the Psychonauts. He runs away from the circus and breaks into their secret training facility, Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp. As he begins his training by psychically delving inside the consciousnesses of his tutors and those around him, he realizes all is not as it seems, and soon embarks upon a psychic odyssey through a variety of levels set inside the minds of misfits, monsters, and madmen.

But the story of Psychonauts is only the start of Razputin’s adventures. The game ends on a cliffhanger with the promise of more to come… Now it’s time to tell that story.

“Our fans constantly ask us to make Psychonauts 2, and often we’ve talked about doing it” said Schafer “The problem is that through traditional means we’ve never been able to raise a budget high enough to do it justice. When we crowdfunded Broken Age in 2012 and broke all the records with the amount we raised, it really showed me the power of our community, and it made me think… maybe we can do this, maybe we could make Psychonauts 2 this way!” 

Double Fine will be putting up a significant portion of the development funds ourselves, and getting another piece of the budget from an external partner. This Fig campaign, looking for $3.3 million, will make up the third piece of the budget.

“None of these three parts on their own is enough” continued Schafer, “but together they add up to a sequel worthy of Psychonauts!”

In addition to offering traditional crowdfunding reward tiers, the Psychonauts 2 campaign will be the first in history to also offer investment opportunities for both accredited and unaccredited investors.

The sequel will be developed in house by the award winning team at Double Fine Productions, with Tim Schafer as project lead, alongside original collaborators including co-writer Erik Wolpaw, artists Peter Chan, Scott Campbell, and Nathan Stapley, composer Peter McConnell, voice actors Richard Horvitz and Nicki Rapp, and voice director Khris Brown.
