DoubleFine has completed its campaign for Psychonauts 2, pulling in the requested $3.3 million with five days to spare. The campaign, which is being done through a more recent website called Fig, was addressed by studio head Tim Schafer in a thank you video featuring his entire staff.
Holy Smokes! We did it you guys! Psychonauts 2 is now fully funded!
We want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making this possible. We’ve wanted to make this game for a long time, and now we finally can! So thank you, thank you, thank you!
So what happens next? Well, we still have 5 days to go, so we’ll be continuing the campaign. Everything we raise will go into making the game better, bigger, and shinier, so let’s keep going!
We’ll have some mission updates soon, plus we want to show off some new add-ons we’ve been working on too, so stay tuned!
He sounds really gracious, but deep down inside, I know Tim Schafer is really doing this.
Five days remain, and all of the money goes into making Psychonauts 2 the absolute best game it can be. I’m just as shocked that this is happening as Psychonauts 2 was always one of those sequels I never thought we would see.
