Psychonauts 2: Behind the Brains

Psychonauts 2 is finally upon us after a 16 year wait. We've played it, we like it and we've written the book on it.

Informed by our two years of working with Double Fine to create 20 Double Fine Years, we dedicate this episode of Gaming: The Podcast to Psychonauts 2 and how it embraces the creativity of its developers to provide us something wonderfully unique, insightful and rewarding.

If you would like to learn more about the making of Psychonauts 2, its creators, its art and the guiding principles behind it, then make sure to check out 20 Double Fine Years - our all-encompassing book of everything Double Fine, from Psychonauts 1 and 2 to Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle Remastered and Brutal Legend to Broken Age. Everything is underpinned by complete and exclusive access to Double Fine's art archives and by 10s of hours of original interviews with Tim Schafer, Peter Chan, Scott Campbell and many more.
