We all know that Psychonauts 2 is on it’s way, but beyond the barest details of the plot, we didn’t know much.
Tim Schafer took to Reddit for an AMA in order to rectify this, and shared some interesting details regarding the story of this long awaited sequel.
Apparently, the story of the game will resume mere hours after the events of the original. We already knew that the game would once again feature Raz, finally making his way to Psychonauts Headquarters.
But Schafer dished up some details on what he will encounter there.
“But he finds several things strange about the organisation. While Truman Zanotto was missing, several changes to the direction of the organization were made by his second in command.”
“Funding was cut from traditional psychic research and peacekeeping, and redirected to unorthodox, fringe endeavors, including the discredited practice of necromancy.”
Naturally, things escalate from there, with Schafer promising “double agents and evils of the past.”
As mentioned at the start, we had known some basic elements of the story, but this is the first time anyone at Double Fine has gone into detail.
It sounds promising, but as much as I adore the original, I can’t let myself get excited for this one. I have to keep reminding myself: Massive Chalice. Broken Age. Spacebase DF-9.
