    He will release it, but it will be just another unremarkable stupid kiddie game of his.

    Psychonauts 1 was his last really good game, everything that followed was some uninspired, hyped-up shit.

    this shit has been in development for 2+ years and only have 7 post-campaign updates. smell like another disaster in the making. i would argue it's best spending time actually developing the game instead of making update, but 7 in the span of 2 years and 3 months is unacceptable. most reliable kickstarter projects have updates at least once in 2 months. it should be at least a dozen and honestly we haven't seen anything of the game except for somehow they can make a VR spin off.

    Blah, blah blah. Double Fine can't allow themselves to fail on this, since they have their own money and outside investor money at stake, not just the backer money. Also, they probably learned their lessons about showing and telling everything to the gamers, they just work on the game instead.

    Looks quite nice; there's even a few quality of life improvements stuck in there like the adjusted levitation ball.
    Raz looks quite a bit more flexible and the quarry hub map they shown is huge.
    We'll just have to see if going the huge open world route will be at the detriment of the excellent mind levels.

    Nintendo have set the benchmark again with Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey so any new platformer has to be at least as good as those.
    Surely it can't be as dull and repetitive as Brutal Legend? I don't believe Psychonauts was a fluke!

    As I didn't get burnt by Massive Chalice or Broken Age I'm not really pissed off with Double Fine.
    To be honest other than Psychonauts and the three Lucasarts remasters I don't particularly rate any of their other games.
    Presumably they just fire those out to keep the lights on.

    What that trailer hints at... :D

    I'll be sorely disappointed if this won't be one of the big releases of 2019 2020 2021 whenever.

    Well he tried all kinds of different new games, which you might not like, but looking at all the stuff from this game, it looks perfectly faithful to the original. He won't try to reinvent the wheel with this one.

    Admiral Ford Cruller was one of the greatest Psychonauts of all time, until he literally lost his mind while battling an undisclosed threat. Unable to function as a Psychonaut afterwards due to his fragmented mind, he was placed in charge of the Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp, where he worked as the cook, the groundskeeper, scoutmaster and boatsman, as well as retaining a small fragment of his own personality that helped out Raz on his adventures.

    The trailer hints at the possibility that he was the threat himself.

    There's also the standing question about Milla Vodello's past, which was hinted at in a well-hidden mental vault in the first game.
