Psychonauts 2 Development Detailed in New Documentary Series

Developer Double Fine has teamed up with 2 Player Productions to release PsychOdyssey—a lengthy 34-episode series documentary on the making of 2021’s Psychonauts 2.

The entire series was released simultaneously today, and goes quite in-depth into the story of the development of Psychonauts 2, including the pressure faced by the developers to create a sequel for a cult-classic action platformer.

Topics tackled in the documentary series include developers having to deal with poor morale, overly-ambitious designs, technical challenges, and financial troubles.

The documentary acts as a follow-up to the Double Fine Adventure series, which gave us an unprecedented look at the development of one of Kickstarter’s earlier success stories, Broken Age.

Originally launched digitally, Psychonauts 2 got a physical release in October on consoles. The game is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

Runts This will go over good with the little kid gamers lol

Really? I imagine it'd interest adults far more, even if the game itself is designed for children.


this will be very interesting to watch

I'm all in :D


That sounds pretty interesting. A fly on the wall development documentary on a modern day game studio. That's the first I've heard of its kind..
