Thanks to the success of Psychonauts, developers Double Fine, who had trouble finding funds to make the sequel initially, sought help from fans through crowd-funding and raised nearly US$4 million back in 2015.

Identical to the original game and a follow-up, Psychonauts 2 is a third-person platformer that revolves around Raz, a young psychic with powerful abilities and his quest to bring back the dead villain, Maligua, from the first game.

Psychonauts 2 will be available 25 August on PC via Steam, macOS, Linux, PlayStation 4 & 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
