Go psycho/nuts for the first Psychonauts 2 trailer

Psychonauts 2 just got its first trailer, courtesy of the Game Awards. It's lookin' pretty good. The stylish art design makes for a pleasing combination with the shiny new graphics engine.


Psychonauts 2 is scheduled for 2019 and will come to PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux.

The game's Fig campaign is still open, if you want to pitch in.

I'd forgotten how funny the Ford Cruller reveal was in the original, including that dumb joke about bacon. Also, I'd somehow never noticed that his appearance seems to be based on Kurt Vonnegut. Is that just me? Things to muse on as you take the opportunity to revisit Peter McConnell's beautiful Psychonauts soundtrack. I've never been out in a cabin without having "Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp" in my head.

Alternatively, revisit the work of Scott C., who was largely responsible for the look of the original game. His art's harder to emulate than it looks, I've come to learn.

What does everyone else think about this?

    I don't know if it's just you, but other than the mustache, I'm not seeing it. I mean, both Kurt's thick coiffure and look of general displeasure are clearly missing.

    Cannot wait to play a new video game for the first time in 55 years when this comes out.
