So it looks like Psychonauts 2 for #Linux, Mac and Windows PC will be a successful. Not that we had any doubts, but that $3.3M crowdfunding goal is a sizable investment. The campaign on Fig, for the #highlyanticipated and long-awaited #sequel has now amassed $2,329,316 with 14,487 backers. That is rather impressive seeing crowdfunding laucnhed six days ago.
Psychonauts is obviously a well established brand name with a loyal fanbase. And being that Double Fine are indie developers, they are not scared to charge more for the base pledge. Kickstarter was typically $15-$20 for the full game at launch, a fine discounted incentive.
Larger games are now asking for a lot more, such as Indivisible asking for $30. Psychonauts 2 hitting a level up from there, asking for $39 to plege the basic game.
