Psychonauts 2? What a nice Christmas present that would be



5:00 PM on 12.24.2008

We are possibly just falling into a ploy by Double Fine to get some attention, but we figure Double Fine deserves it. A few days ago, the studio launched a Psychonauts themed Web site, The Psychopedia, and today we've spotted a new post that talks about Psychonauts 2.

Of course, there is no Psychonauts 2 ... at least, not officially. After the first game suffered disappointing sales in the face of critical acclaim, it was pretty certain that we'd never see another. In fact, even The Psychopedia calls it "The Unicorn of Gaming." So why is there a page on it, and why is there even a Psychopedia in the first place after all this time? 

Is this all gearing up to the fabled sequel, or is Double Fine simply yanking our chain? At least the developer has an outline of what we could expect in a follow up: "After doing Psychic stuff, he fights things, finds things, goes into things, goes out of things, eats things, drinks things, learns things, knows things, rescues things, and saves things."

The page then laments the inability to be more descriptive. We join it in lamentation, before being arseholes and telling everyone that the page spelled "protagonist" wrong.
