Studio Double Fine published a festive diary of developers Psychonauts 2, in which you can see the new gameplay of the game. The authors note that the development of basic content is almost complete, so this month will be the last time you can add something new to the game. At the same time, Psychonauts 2 can already be passed from start to finish, although some cutscenes, main menu and final credits are not yet ready.
Tim Shafer notes that in the sequel, unlike the original, it will be possible continue the game after the conclusion of the story campaign, but this part has not yet been written. Next year, the team will focus on polishing the project.
In addition, the head of the studio said that the developers cut out some of the content because they were not sure how to implement certain elements. The authors could postpone the release again, but decided not to, as fans and the publisher represented by Microsoft waited long.
Also in Double Fine consciously decided not to arrange the period reworks to make time for the release. According to Shafer, during the development of the first part, the team experienced one of the worst periods of cranches, which became the last.
The release of Psychonauts 2 will take place in 2021. More on CCeit Producer Bloodborne and Demon‘s Souls remake leaves SIE Japan Studio Speedrunners already breaking records for Cyberpunk 2077 Super Meat Boy Forever’s “sex passage” came out on Nintendo Switch and PC.
