Psychonauts Retrospective Video Runs Through The Game's Inception

by Kyle Hilliard on Dec 08, 2015 at 03:18 PM

As part of Psychonauts 2's funding efforts, the first of a series of video's about the game's production has been unlocked.

The video includes impressive gems for Psychonauts fans, like Schafer's very first sketch of the summer camp, which you can see below. It has interviews with the original team, and has lots of footage showing Double Fine literally coming together during its first days.

This is the first part of a planned series to look back at the development of the original Psychonauts as Double Fine gears up to craft the sequel.

Our Talk
We recently did a top 10 list of the best video game documentaries in the magazine, and we awarded the Double Fine Adventure documentary, which covered the development of Broken Age, the number one slot. This series is by the same group (2 Player Productions) about the same group (Double Fine). For that reason, I am very excited to see more about the creation of Psychonauts, a game I love dearly.
