Psychonauts is the only retail videogame I have ever purchased through a digital download and I don’t regret it one bit. The critically acclaimed “mixture of happy and sad that everybody’s life is” didn’t perform very well when it was originally released but has stuck with those of us adventurous enough to give something different a try. The cult following earned by Psychonauts could even lead a sequel being made, if a publisher is found to take up the mind warrior’s cause.
Speaking of the possibility of a Psychonauts 2, Double Fine’s Tim Schafer admits that he is “ready to do it, I’d love to do it,” but it all depends on finding a publisher who is just as interested. He admits that while it has taken some time, the game has “gotten into the hands of a lot of people, through being two dollars on Steam for a while, and being pirated.” This leads to Schafer to believe that the fan base is out there, proving that “if all these people were going to buy the sequel it would be a big hit.”
