The Game Awards 2018 featured many new game and DLC announcements, but one that has turned a significant amount of heads is Double Fine Productions’ Psychonauts 2, which also got its first official trailer.
Psychonauts 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to 2005’s original Psychonauts, a platforming game in which the main character explores various landscapes of people’s minds to help them overcome personal problems.
An overview of the game’s story by Double Fine Productions:
Psychonauts 2 tells the story of Razputin Aquato, a gifted acrobat with psychic powers, as he fulfills his life-long goal of becoming an international psychic super-spy. In other words, a Psychonaut. Raz joins the Psychonauts at a dangerous time: a mole has infiltrated the organization and is planning to resurrect history’s most cruelly powerful psychic villains. Not knowing who to trust, Raz must dive into the history of the Psychonauts, and that of his own family, to fight the demons of their shared past.
The very cartoony trailer:
The game’s crowdfunding campaign is currently in a “slacker backer” period that allows those interested to pre-order the game ahead of time.
Psychonauts 2 is due out on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2019.
