Entrepreneur, music lover, player of video games, and futurist.
Tim Shafer is one of the many old school game developer gods. 10 years ago his company Double Fine Productions created Psychonauts, a fantastic platformer with great characters, comedy and visuals. Psychonauts in my opinion, was one of the few last great platformers to be created, and I am pleased to say that they have decided to make a sequel. As Tim explains in the video below, the original game did not do so well when it first released, but when it was re-released on Steam 10ish years later they made a ton of cash.
Psychonauts 2 is being funded by Double Fine itself, investors, and crowd sourcing via fig.co. To date they have released a whopping 1,8 million bucks, but still need to raise a total of 3.3 million. Help them reach their goal at https://www.fig.co/campaigns/psychonauts-2.
