Psychonauts 2 recently crossed its crowdfunding goal of $3.3 million. At the time of drafting this post, there are just under 24 hours left in the campaign with the Fig campaign earning over $3.5 million.
We received a gentle nudge that the campaign was entering its final full day by way of email from the Fig PR team. It was that email that suggested that Psychonauts 2 set a crowdfunding record.
Here is exactly how the team put it:
We’re excited to say that Double Fine’s Psychonauts 2 has already broken records and is now the game with the highest funded goal in crowdfunding history.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Psychonauts. That record is a little, well, dubious. It is basically saying it set the highest met goal ever. Not that it made the most money ever, but that it is currently the highest reachable bar.
The most crowdfunded game is Star Citizen with more than $100 million funded and still climbing.
Still, Psychonauts 2 is officially coming. When? Fig says roughly the fall of 2018. Honestly, no one knows.
