2005’s Psychonauts may not have been a runaway commercial success, but it is regularly cited as one of the greatest examples of creative design in video game history. The game focuses on a camp of students who learn to use their psychic abilities to visit the minds of various people. Those minds are represented by some of the most obscure and creative levels ever designed by the great Tim Schafer.
Fans of Psychonauts have been clamoring for a sequel for years and helped turned Psychonauts 2‘s crowdfunding campaign into one of the most successful endeavors of its kind. The question now is whether or not this sequel can live up to the almost mythological precedent that its predecessor set.
Will this game live up to the hype, or will fans ask for it to be removed from their memories?
Here’s everything we know about Psychonauts 2:
