Psychonauts 2 Features An Invincibility Toggle For “All Ages, All Possible Needs”

Psychonauts 2 Invincibility

The future of gaming releases has many highly-anticipated titles, but perhaps none have been in the waiting as long as Psychonauts 2. The original Psychonauts was highly praised by critics and audiences, though its fairly minimal financial success kept the game from having a sequel completed until now. While Psychonauts 2 has seen significant delays in its development, its final confirmed release date next month is finally nigh. A topic of interest in gaming in recent years has been accessibility for all gamers, and now, a significant inclusive step has been confirmed with the newly announced Psychonauts 2 invincibility mode.

Developer Double Fine recently confirmed the Psychonauts 2 invincibility mode with a tweet reply from their official Twitter account. The reply was made to a tweet from the official Xbox Twitter account claiming that “Beating the game on the lowest difficulty is still beating the game.” The Double Fine account then used the opportunity to acknowledge that Psychonauts 2 will have an invincibility mode that can simply be toggled on and off at any time.

Double Fine then follows up the tweet with a reply that mocks the hypothetical responses they know they will receive from some gamers claiming that different difficulty modes inhibit their users from experiencing the game as it was meant to be played, and thus not making the player a “true gamer.” They separately also suggest that all gamers should be able to play a game to its completion, regardless of skill, both of the gaming or physical ability variety. This would seem to suggest that their Psychonauts 2 invincibility mode is meant to both allow disabled gamers to fully enjoy the game, while also act as a call to action for the rest of the industry to be as mindfully inclusive. Hopefully, the industry is impacted by this thoughtful addition. That would be a mind manipulation worthy of Raz and his friends.
