Psychonauts 2 Successful Funding Campaign Has Ended [UPDATE]
"I've got my mind on my money, and my money on my mind," - Snoop Dogg, probably talking about Psychonauts?
[UPDATE] The crowdfunding for Psychonauts 2 is now over, after more than a month of campaigning. 24,109 backers gave Double Fine $3,829,024 to make the long-anticipated sequel to Psychonauts. About $1,874,000 of that came from investments, and about $1,954,000 came from people who chose rewards.
Psychonauts 2 was announced at The Game Awards, alongside the campaign that would help crowdfund the game. Since then, more than 20,000 backers have helped raise a total of over $3.8 million.
Double Fine is celebrating the successful end to their campaign on Twitch. The livestream features talk about the history of Psychonauts. Voice actor Richard Horvitz, who is known for his roles in Invader Zim and Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, was on the stream and talked about how he got the gig to voice Psychonauts' main character Raz.
Schafer revealed story details for the Psychonauts sequel in a Reddit AMA. It was also recently announced that the PlayStation 4 would be getting a re-release of the original Psychonauts this spring.
