It's been a long wait for Psychonauts 2. The original Psychonauts was released in the waaaay way back of 2005, and fans have been eagerly waiting another installment ever since. And if you're one of those fans, hopefully a new video from developer Double Fine will provide some much-needed relief.
As game director Tim Schafer says in this behind-the-scenes peek, everything you see here is a prototype. It's been built as an exercise for the team so they can nail the fundamentals like walking, jumping, combat, and art direction before moving on to actually building the proper game. Still, it's a good look at what Raz can (or rather, will be able to) do in Psychonauts 2. Let's check out his moves:
There is of course the standard double-jump...
And the ball roll makes a return...
Idle animations are a good way to show personality
Tim is unimpressed with the glide animation
Raz can give Nathan Drake a run for his money
Sonic the Hedgehog would be proud
Yes, our dear Raz is quite the acrobat
Of course, having psychic abilities helps
And psy-knives make for a cool weapon
What's better than Raz? Five Raz. Raz-ma-tazz.
