Double Fine: Psychonauts 2
- Double Fine has had a habit of experimenting in multiple game genres but has made very few successful sequels. Costume Quest 2 was maybe the only one that comes to mind, but they have managed to do it once again with Psychonauts 2.
- Double Fine was also recently acquired by Microsoft, and Psychonauts 2 is the first game they have released under Microsoft. With the success of the launch, it is safe to say Microsoft will be happy with their acquiring the developer studio.
- Psychonauts 2 begins with the immediate events at the end of the first installation, with the lead character Raz starting his first day as an intern at Psychonauts, the international spy agency.
- The dialogues are excellent and are one of the things Double Fine excels at. The game covers a range of themes from sci-fi mystery to high school comedy, romances, and even mental health issues. The different levels of the game feature unique setups, with a lot of o surprises all along with the game.
