Will Double Fine do a Psychonauts HD remaster?

6 Dec 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

A Number of New Double Fine Titles Coming to PlayStation 4 in 2016.

Tim Schafer from Double Fine Productions announced two remastered games will be coming to PS4 and PS Vita at the PlayStation Experience 2015 in San Francisco.Earlier this year, Double Fine released a remastered version of Grim Fandango and the studio has a similarly spit-shined rendition of Day of the Tentacle ready for release in early 2016.

With that in mind, during Destructoid’s recent chat with Double Fine chief Tim Schafer regarding Psychonauts 2, we had to ask if the developer has any plans to release a polished version of the original game for modern platforms, so new audiences might have an opportunity to see what all the fuss is about before the hotly-anticipated follow-up launches in 2018. “We talk about this a lot,” Schafer said, before mentioning every remaster has its unique challenges. “They’re all different,” he added, “And Psychonauts would involve a lot of remodeling.” “We’re trying to figure out what we can do,” Schafer told us. “I wouldn’t say we’re never going to do that. If we can figure out a way that we can bring it to a new audience, we would love to have as many people play it as possible.” That said, it sounds like a remaster of that scale is more than Double Fine can commit to at present. The player is taken into a cartoonish world following Bernard Bernoulli, and his friends Hoagie and Laverne, on an adventure to stop the evil Purple Tentacle. Schafer created the games while he was at LucasArts, the now-defunct division of Star Wars creator George Lucas’ Lucasfilm, which is now owned by Disney.
