Psychonauts 2 was announced at The Game Awards today, albeit in a roundabout way. It’s not officially guaranteed to happen yet, with a $3,300,000 crowdfunding campaign underway on Fig. But Fig will only provide one portion of the development funds. Double Fine will be providing a big portion of the funds themselves and an unnamed outside partner will be providing the remainder.
The campaign page is live now, and is ticking up at a pretty quick rate. Rewards are doled out in tiers, similar to Kickstarter, and you can pick up the game, once/if it’s completed, for $33 bucks. Donate enough to be an official investor, and you can pick up a piece of the profits.
Be sure to watch The PC Gamer Show next Tuesday, as we’ll be talking to Tim Schafer himself. Join us as we try to take a peek into the industry veteran’s mind about Double Fine’s surprising endeavor.
