UPDATE: Tim Schafer has released a short video where he sit in front of the talks about Psychonauts 2’s story. He says pretty much the same things he wrote during the Reddit AMA, but now you can listen to him and not have have to read!


Psychonauts 2 is a story of psychic espionage, necromancy and love. Not necessarily in that order.

Double Fine’s boss and Psychonauts creator Tim Schafer has gone onto Reddit to conduct his own Reddit AMA. Amid the onslaught of questions, Schafer revealed a few new details about the game’s plot.

“In Psychonauts 2, Raz will finally get to go to Psychonauts headquarters – his lifelong dream,” Schafer writes. “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.”

There you go. Pyschonauts 2 will continue the story of the original Psychonauts, and will feature plenty of new mysteries from our young psychic agent.

The game was recently funded through Fig successfully, if you like what you read, you can rest assured it will see the light of day eventually.
