The unexpected happened at The Game Awards again, as Tim Schafer’s iconic Psychonauts got, against all odds, a sequel announcement… yep, that’s right, Psychonauts 2 was announced tonight at The Game Awards. You can check it out for yourself below.
In a trend that is becoming disturbingly common, the game itself has not yet entered development, but is currently up for backing on a crowdfunding platform. However, in this case, the crowdfunding platform will lead to backers essentially becoming investors, which means if you put your money down for this game, you get paid on its sales. It’s an interesting concept, and one that takes the crowdfunding concept to the new level. And given that Schafer and Double Fine were the first to put a game on Kickstarter anyway, it’s interesting to see them continue to evolve and grow the concept.
