Psychonauts 2 is the impossible sequel that we often forget exists. But exist it does, as this ‘First Playable’ milestone that Double Fine has revealed evidences. Now, let’s be clear: the game is still some way away and this is all very much work in progress, but essentially the studio’s managed to collate enough content to cobble together an entire level – albeit an incomplete one.
The clip showcases a multitude of mechanics, such as a platforming and climbing – but it’s all still pretty rough. The task for the studio now is to polish everything up, and then repeat that process over the course of a full game. There’s still tons for the studio to do, then – but it’s making tangible progress, and that’s the most important part.
