More Thoughts From Me #279: Return of the Psychonauts

Psychonauts 2 is coming out this month. Let me repeat that in all caps: PSYCHONAUTS 2 IS COMING OUT THIS MONTH. Yes that was necessary. The Psychonauts are coming back and you should be excited. Let’s talk about Psychonauts 2.


I never thought there would be a Psychonauts 2.

I remember playing Psychonauts on the orignal Xbox and loving it. It was a super fun and really weird platformer. It was like Tim Burton decided to make a video game.

Time went on and people didn’t talk about Psychonauts much. It didn’t seem likely there would be a sequel. So when a sequel was announced, my mind was blown. Raz in a new adventure! Wow.

The question though…could it live up to the orignal?

I haven’t played Psychonauts 2 yet, so I can’t tell you for sure, however from the stuff I’ve seen so far…
Psychonauts 2 looks awesome!


The look and feel of the game is very true to the first Psychonauts. The gameplay looks pretty similar. The scope of the game looks a lot bigger though. Its a pretty amazing looking game!

If you haven’t played the first Psychonauts, you can find the game for download on the Playstation Store and I’m sure on Xbox and other places like PC. Its still a fun game. You should check it out before playing the new one, especially if you are unfamiliar with Psychonauts. The new game looks to follow up on Psychonauts wacky and wonderful story.

I’m so excited for Psychonauts 2. I hope I get to play it soon.

Psychonauts 2 is coming out on August 25th, 2021 for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and X, and PC.

What do you think of Psychonauts?? Are you looking forward to the sequel?
