It's nearly time for another truly wild adventure as Double Fine has confirmed an August 25 launch for Psychonauts 2.
This was announced during the Xbox E3 showcase, since Double Fine are now part of Xbox Game Studios. The good news, is that Linux support is still confirmed and they mentioned this multiple times with no indication of any delays.
"Razputin “Raz” Aquato, trained acrobat and powerful young psychic, has realized his lifelong dream of joining the international psychic espionage organization known as the Psychonauts! But these psychic super spies are in trouble. Their leader hasn't been the same since he was rescued from a kidnapping, and what's worse, there's a mole hiding in headquarters."
While Double Fine are sticking to their original promise of Linux support from the original crowdfunding campaign, we do fully expect any of their future titles to skip over Linux support since it's not likely Microsoft / Xbox will want their next games to be supported on Linux.
- Experience an imaginative, cinematic story that mixes humor and intrigue, brought to you by legendary game designer Tim Schafer (Grim Fandango, Brütal Legend, Broken Age).
- Explore unique environments using Raz’s ability to dive into people’s brains to battle their inner demons, unlock hidden memories, and resolve their emotional baggage.
- Leap acrobatically through the air, traversing tightropes and trapezes in a varied, challenging, and joyful platforming experience.
- Wield a powerful array of psychic powers to blast, burn and levitate things, or even slow down time itself to solve environmental puzzles and battle strange enemies.
