Psychonauts 2 hit crowdfunding goal this week for Linux, Mac and Windows PC


Psychonauts 2 has just met its crowdfunding #campaign goal. The #sequel to the cult #classic raised just over $3.3 million with five days left.

Series creator Tim Schafer launched the project in early December via Fig, a platform that he and fellow developers founded last August. Where backers are offered equity in projects submit money for, as well as rewards similar to Kickstarter campaigns. And for Psychonauts 2, the rewards include soundtracks, digital copies of the first and second games, and more.

Tim Schafer confirmed the game was in the works on-stage at The Game Awards 2015 this year. Psychonauts 2 will launch on Linux, Mac, Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There is currently no release date yet, even though the campaign page lists Fall 2018 as the suggested arrival for the rewards.

The company has already gathered the money needed to fund the game, but Double Fine will continue to take individual investments through Fig until the campaign ends on January 12.
