You remember Psychonauts? That overlooked gem that was out in the PS2 era? Well, it seems that a revisit to that series may just be on the cards.
This rather interesting news comes to us from a recent interview that he did with Destructoid did with him after the BAFTA Game Awards, in which he was asked which of his many series’ meant the most to him, and which he would most like to revist. His response was simply, thus….
“That’s a tough question because of course every game is important at the time. There’s things people don’t expect when they ask me this like Kinect Party — did you ever play Kinect Party? It was our lowest-selling game of all time. It’s a Kinect game where little kids play with their grandparents together and it was really rewarding to see families playing that, it was just so rewarding, you know?
The world of Psychonauts is so interesting because you can just keep creating more brains every time you meet somebody and wonder what the world inside their brain looks like. It also feels like the kind of unfinished story of Eddie Briggs (Brutal Legend) would be a great excuse to work with Jack Black again.
It’s hard because of how Grim ended. It was a really rich and full world but I feel like that character had such a complete progression that I feel like he’s done with. I don’t know if I want to go back down that road with someone who isn’t Manny.
All the other ones, a lot of them at least like Psychonauts you can just imagine. For Brutal Legend it’s kind of already designed because we had to throw away half that game to get it done two years late. It’s a lot easier to imagine going forward with that or Psychonauts.”
So…. it seems like both Brutal Legend and Psychonauts would be something he would revisit, which kind of ties into some comments he’s made before…
