[Update]: Six years after its big reveal, Psychonauts 2 has now finally been unleashed onto PC and consoles!

After raising an absolutely ridiculous $3.8 million through their Fig crowdfunding campaign Double Fine started the long and arduous process of bringing the much-anticipated Psychonauts 2 to life. While we're still nowhere near the final release date, you might be glad to hear that Double Fine has now successfully managed to create a playable build of the game! Its obviously unfinished and unpolished, but its still a massive achievement as a lot of the gameplay elements are now actually functional.

So if you're interested in some very early pre-alpha 'gameplay' you'll find the recently posted developer diary right below. I would highly recommend you give it a look, if only for the ability to peer behind the curtains of game development in order to see what exactly goes into the creation of a single game. Anyway, here's the video:

I would love to offer you more, but since Psychonauts 2 is still so early in development there really isn't much else to share. If you would like to follow its development moving forward, however, you should head over to the official website. There's not much there just yet, but I'm sure it'll fill out as we inch closer towards release. And speaking of release dates, Psychonauts 2 is expected to arrive in the summer of 2018, though don't be surprised if you hear its being delayed since this is only a rough estimate.
