The Game Awards 2015: ‘Psychonauts 2’ Announcement Trailer
  |  @   |  

Fans of Double Fine Productions’ Psychonauts have been waiting for a sequel for a long time now, and during The Game Awards 2015 an announcement trailer for the game was shared.

But there’s a bit of a catch. Double Fine has looked to (and found much success with) crowdfunding to make their games, and they are doing the same for Psychonauts 2. But this is a different kind of crowdfunding. Instead of going with the usual Kickstarter or Indiegogo, they’re going with a company called fig. This allows you not only to back the game for rewards, but if you want, you can actually INVEST in the game and make some money back depending on how well it does when released.

You can find out more and watch the announcement trailer below.

Comic Review: Psychonauts #1

Psychonauts #1
A Trip through the Multiverse
Created by Plaid Klaus
Mind Comics
Release Date: June 1, 2012
Cover Price: $1.99

Psychonauts like the many stoner comedies before it, is a comic deeply rooted in drug culture. Now, while that may seem impenetrable to those among us who don’t walk on the psychedelic wild side, creator Plaid Klaus tries his damnedest to make this comic as accessible as possible. And for the most part Klaus succeeds with a beautiful blend of mind-bending, witty writing and polished classic cartoon-style art.

What sets Psychonauts apart from your run-of-the-mill stoner story is simply Klaus’ ability to embrace the weirdest and most disorienting moments of a drug trip. Someone in the distance is telling us they can’t feel anything, then like a flash of lightning, we are talking with an all-seeing alien god. The alien god is talking about robots, or something; it doesn’t really matter because its over in a split second and we’re waking up in a field. What the hell just happened?
