Psychonauts 1 to hit 4

This spring for the PS4, even! Will it be based on the oft decried PS2 or the celebrated every-other-version? Who knows! But it is coming either way. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Like the Basic Braining punching mini-game, the Psychonauts 2 Crowdfunding goal of 3.3 million dollars has been well hit. There's still 4 days left in the campaign, so there's still time to back if you haven't yet had the chance, or if you've been waiting it to hit the goal before pledging.

Okay, so you hardly needed Mojo do learn this bit of bad news, now a week old, but we should acknowledge the passing of heavy metal icon "Lemmy" Kilmister.

Other sites have done better than we ever could at attempting to put Lemmy's larger metal career in perspective, but we'll always remember him for his performance as the bass-playing Kill Master from Double Fine's Brütal Legend.

I mean, all of you -- all three of you -- had expected this: the Mojo Psychonauts 2 Pledge Goals!

As usual, we are pimping out Jason, and this time he graciously agreed to perform Coach's intro speech in Psychonauts in French! OK, he didn't agree to this, and I only assume he knows French because he's in Louisiana, but either way… Thanks Jason! All we ask, is that you make this a $3.5 million pledge, and Jason will do his thing, as he always does.

For now, we have galleries and videos from the original game for you to enjoy, many which you probably haven't watched before. More importantly, though, support Jason in his quest to get this done!

The Psychonauts 2 Fig Crowd Funding Campaign has just crossed the three million dollar mark. There's only $300,000 left to go until it reaches it's target.

If you've missed it, Double Fine has been releasing some cool stuff during this campaign. Earlier, they released an awesome two part retrospective on Psychonauts called The Color of the Sky in Your World, as well as previously unseen concept art from the original Psychonauts.

They've also been releasing season two of their Devs Play series, where developers play classic video games, usually with guests that helped create them. This season, since they've been produced to help promote the Psychonauts 2 campaign, they've been focusing on the games that influenced Psychonauts, and those that will influence the sequel.

You can go straight to the Devs Play Season Two playlist here, or view this season's episodes individually: Spiro the Dragon with Ted Price, Ratchet and Clank with Ted Price, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time with Patrice Désilets and Assassin's Creed II with Patrice Désilets.

If you missed season one, be sure to check it out as well. The first season plays around with the format more than the second, with episodes some episodes focused on speed running and emulation, but even those are worth watching. There's some really interesting tidbits in each of these episodes.

That's about what I was able to extract from this VRFocus article. As you may have already forgotten due to the avalanche of great news that's been going down the last few weeks, we're in fact looking at two upcoming Psychonauts games, and one of them will be out next year as an exclusive for the PlayStation VR, whatever that is.

The main nugget of info here is that the game will be first person, which will, and I quote, "bring unique twists to several powers, including using the character’s clairvoyance to see through the eyes of other people as well as also utilising telekinesis to move objects and pyrokinesis to burn them." Sounds like good clean fun for those of you who will be buying this PS4 accessory!

Most of you are enjoying the latest resurgence of the LucasArts adventures, courtesy of Double Fine. However, for those of you who are interested in their biggest competitor during their adventure heyday, Sierra has been having a bit of a resurgence of its own.

Today, it finally continues with the release of the second chapter of The Odd Gentlemen's King's Quest, Rubble Without A Cause. The first chapter was inspired by the original King's Quest. This chapter is said to be inspired by King's Quest III.

Although, the gameplay in King's Quest itself is heavily inspired by Telltale Games. However, it bests their current games as it manages to blend choices and consequences together with traditional inventory based puzzles in a way that we all wish Telltale would manage.

A Block and a Hard Place, the fourth and penultimate episode of Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode, will arrive on all platforms on December 22nd.

The episode will be see the end of the story of the Wither Storm, which is the season wide monster that was unleashed back in episode one. Because of this, Telltale is referring to the episode as the "Wither Storm Finale". When the fifth episode is released, things will be much different for the members of Jesse's crew, and Telltale is remaining mum on what those changes will be. The finale of Minecraft: Story Mode will be released in 2016.

2 Player Productions has created an excellent retrospective on Psychonauts titled The Color of Your World. This 50 minute retrospective has been posted in three parts on YouTube. You can view the first part embedded below, or directly here, and the other other parts can be selected from the annotations at the end of the video. Or, alternatively you can, you can view part two directly here, and part three directly here.

The Psychonauts Fig campaign is doing well so far. It's currently nearly 75% funded with 31 days left to go. So, there's plenty of time to back it if you haven't. If you feel like playing a social media game, Double Fine has set one up for the campaign, which is a neat new twist on their social media campaign from the original Psychonauts which used Friendster and Myspace (remember those relics of the internet from 10 years ago?), this time using modern social media like Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, Vine, and YouTube and combining them with achievements.

Although, unlike usual video game achievements, you actually get tangible rewards for playing this game. Once enough people hit a goal, everyone who follows the campaign will get fun stuff like this retrospective, which was the first goal hit. The next goal is previously unseen concept art from the original Psychonauts. The social media game is a completely optional part of the campaign, but if you want to join in on the fun, join the PSI Cadets.

The Psychonauts 2 Crowdfunding campaign on Fig is going quite well, as it is now over 50% of the way to it's 3.3 million dollar goal in just a few days.

You probably have already backed it, but if you have been putting off choosing a pledge tier because you didn't want to back through the Fig website, you're in luck.

At the Psychonauts website, the option is available to back the game through Paypal instead of through Fig.

However, if you want to invest (they accept both accredited investors and unaccredited investors with at least a $500 investment), then you'll have to go through the Fig website.

The PlayStation Experience had a lot of good things from Double Fine this year. On top of the new game announcements of Full Throttle Remastered and Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, the official trailer for next year's Day of the Tentacle Remastered has made it's official debut. It also has received a release window, March 2016.

You can view it embedded below, or directly here.

Want more Double Fine News? Your heart can't take it? Too bad, as there was one more game revealed at the PlayStation Experience.

If you wondered what happened after the end of Psychonauts, you'll now get your answer in the form of Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, the PlayStation VR game, coming to PlayStation 4 next year.

You'll finally be able to take part in the rescue mission mentioned at the end of the first game, bridging the story gap between the original Psychonauts and the forthcoming sequel, which you can still back over at Fig, if you haven't already.

You can view the trailer embedded below, or directly here.

Full Throttle Remastered Is Coming

05 Dec, 2015, 19:26 | Posted by: Jennifer | Comments: 8
Image Is Psychonauts 2 not enough Double Fine news for you? You want more? Mojo has you covered.

Hot on the heels of this year's excellent Grim Fandango Remastered, and next year's fantastic looking Day of the Tentacle Remastered, Tim Schafer took the stage at the PlayStation Experience to announce that Full Throttle is also getting the remastered treatment.

It will feature updated graphics and sound, director's commentary, and new control options that will make the game more accessible to today's gaming audiences.

Full Throttle Remastered will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in 2017 (and presumably Windows, Mac, and Linux as well, since both previous Double Fine remasters were announced as PlayStation console exclusives and were also revealed to be coming to computer systems as well).
