During a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) Tim Shafer was answering questions and was asked about the story of the full funded Psychonauts 2. Shafer wasn’t shy and didn’t mind letting the audience who helped fund his game a little insight into what they would be playing when the game comes out.
In Psychonauts 2, Raz will finally get to go to Psychonauts headquarters–his lifelong dream. There he can see Sasha and Milla in their natural environment–international espionage. But he finds several things strange about the organization. While Truman Zanotto was missing, several changes to the direction of the organization were made by his second in command. Funding was cut from traditional psychic research and peacekeeping, and redirected to unorthodox, fringe endeavors, including the discredited practice of necromancy. Raz soon uncovers sinister things at work in the shadows of Psychonauts headquarters, including double agents and evils of the past. Raz’s own family history plays a pivotal part in the story, and Raz must confront the roots of the curse placed on his family once and for all. And also deal with this whole “girlfriend” term and what it really means. 🙂
I guess it’s time for me to go back and finally play the Psychonauts so I can be ready for this game. When released Psychonauts 2 will be available on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Microsoft Windows, Linux and Mac OS.
