What, you expected a new Psychonauts game? Pffft. That game sold, what, four copies? So what if it was really, really good. That story we (and everyone else on the planet) ran earlier about a mysterious Psychonauts "Coming Soon!" teaser images was just that -- a tease.
Double Fine's Tim Schafer tells 1UP it was all a big misunderstanding:
"It's crazy, isn't it? We just put that in there as a placeholder for the Psychonauts page we're eventually going to have. But we made it dark and people freaked out," he told us. "While I'm sorry people got their hopes up, I'm happy that people got excited about it. Who knows? Maybe some clever publisher will see how much excitement that dark little banner generated, and send us a few million dollars to make a new Psychonauts game! :)"
Well what did you expect, posting a teaser image with the original Psychonauts logo on your Web site? Oh yeah! A page about Psychonauts! What were we thinking, all hopeful for a sequel to a great game? Silly us.
Looks like we just have the brutality of Brutal Legend to look forward to, and with all of that blood and metal, that's good enough for us. For now.
