Recent news:
  • Rescheduled to 2021
  • Mac release still planned
  • New kick-ass trailer - minor spoiler if you want to play this game cold: the trailer shows off a level

I couldn't be more excited for this game.

p.s. I confirmed last night that the original runs great on Crossover for Catalina.

Thanks!

Thanks for posting a fix for Matt's link UmarOMC1, since the original is fixed I will delete your correction and Matt's response. You still got two beans which won't be erased and two thanks which will last forever.

This one took me by surprise.  I'm looking forward to it but it has been so long that I forgot about it!  This was a groundbreaking game and I am going to pick this one up when it goes on sale.  Yes, I am a bargain hunter, like my father before me.

It's looking great, and I'm glad I backed it. DF seemed to have dodged a bullet, though, by being bought by Microsoft. Originally, they had to remove the boss fights. Like Broken Age, the money they asked for was clearly not enough.

True. But they've been dodging bullets from the start. From their blog commemorating 20 years:

[Double Fine's] first project was Psychonauts but the development wasn’t entirely smooth sailing as an initial deal with Microsoft went through and it was only a last-minute publishing deal with Majesco that saved the project and the studio.
Now we've come full circle. Long may their uncanny survival continue..

Psychonauts 2 release date is in two months: Aug 25th, 2021.
Steam's pre-order only shows a Windows version, but Double Fine's new page says:

Quote

As a reminder for platforms that you'll be able to enjoy the game on, here's the list:

-Xbox Series X and S
-Xbox One
-PC (Windows and Linux)
-Mac
-PS4
-PS5 via backwards compatibility
Which is reassuring but I need to see system requirements before I purchase. (Also not clear if Steam will be the only option.)

I'm sure it'll be available on GOG at some point if not on release, like all their games. The latest Fig update says they're still working on the other storefronts. For backers, they specifically mention a DRM-free option, and "Platforms TBC while we work with them - but most likely Steam, Humble, and GOG."

Also, Linux and Mac is coming shortly after launch (TBD) which is why they are absent on the Steam page.

No, I often buy games on Steam. It’s just not my first choice.

It was fine until Catalina (it was 32-bit). But I didn’t have any trouble running the Windows version with Crossover on Catalina.
