Psychonauts 2 updates and release date
On 19 April 2005, Psychonauts released, and it won a die-hard fan base immediately. Psychonaut's ability to infiltrate the brains of gamers was also incredible. It grew continually over the years, increasing its success, instead of dying like other games. It became a title that defined the genre that millions of players worldwide carefully considered. Inspiring so many also gave rise to a lot of Xbox one s skin and Xbox one sticker featuring psychonauts you can grab.
The successor to 2005's massive hit by Double Fine Productions is now expected by the 2020 year. In an update posted to the crowdfunding platform on Wednesday, studio boss Tim Schafer told donors. Psychonauts 2 was initially announced in 2018 and expected to release this year, afterward. It is the 2nd pushback and 3rd game launch window.
The original game starts with the story of a young psychic named Razputin, who wants to be part of an elite group of psychological agents, the Psychonauts. He runs away from a circus and enters the Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp, the secret training facility of the psychics. As he continues his training by developing his mental knowledge, he goes into the minds of his tutors and others around him. He discovers that everything doesn't seem to be as it should seem, and he quickly embarks on a series of psychic adventure in the minds of monsters and madmen. However, the narrative of Psychonauts is just the beginning of the exploits of Razputin. The game ends with a finale promising more, Psychonauts 2!
Psychonauts 2 is more the same as the original artistic style. It maintains the aesthetic of the show but with upgraded graphics to unleash them on new-gen platforms. The cartoony graphics are still there; they will be slightly smoother with better texture quality and higher resolution.
Lots have changed over the last year, though, with both the title and Double Fine. For beginners, Microsoft purchased the studio. The publishing rights of Psychonauts 2, were also acquired from the initial publisher Starbreeze, which is under bankruptcy reorganization. Initially promised platforms Psychonauts 2 is due to Double Fine: PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. There are tons of Xbox one s skin, and Xbox one sticker specifically made for Psychonauts fans, which you should check out!
In 2015 The Game Awards 2015, Psychonauts 2 was revealed and crowdfunded with donations which completed in January 2016 with $3,829,024 from 24,109 backers. The Double Fine did something very different rather than the usual process like crowdfunding the game through Kickstarter. The studio had decided to build its crowdfunding platform called Fig, which allows a fan to invest and get exclusive benefits and even shares from the game's sales.
Crowdfunding was a huge success, but the game actually got stuck in a loop with release dates being pushed back. Initially, around July and September 2018, Psychonauts 2 was supposed to be launched. But in late 2017, Double Fine told donors that developers needed more time to finish the game after finishing constructing their first playable build. And as of June 2020, there is still no news of an exact release date, which has got both fans and investors displeased. However, a lot of fan art inspired Xbox one s skin, and Xbox one sticker for die-hard Psychonauts fans are available. Be sure to grab yours to show your love for the game.
