Double Fine Campaign Update

The Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter Page has an update on the startlingly immediate success of this effort at crowdsourcing the funding for Double Fine's next adventure game, which may or may not be Psychonauts 2. The project has now raise over triple its $400K goal, and here's word:

UPDATE: We did it! 100% funded in just over eight hours. You people are amazing! But it's not over yet. The number keeps going up and now the question is just how much news do we want to make with this? We're getting a lot of attention already and it seems like this little project could have an impact beyond itself.

All money raised will go to make the game and documentary better. Additional money means it can appear on more platforms, be translated into more languages, have more music and voice, and an original soundtrack for the documentary, and more!

Your backing and comments have been truly inspiring to me and the team, so on behalf of Double Fine and 2 Player Productions I want to say THANK YOU!!!

I can't wait to see where this thing can go!

The description says "brand new" adventure game. I think they wanted to document the process of making the game from start to finish better than any game has been documented before. I do NOT think its psychonauts 2.

If it was P2, then there'd be NO REASON at all for them to avoid saying so. They'd get tons more money and press if they did. They got the psychonauts IP back and own it now (which is why they've started updating it again after all these years), so they aren't beholden to anyone telling them to keep it quiet. The very first monthly video documentary they are going to send out after kickstarter is over about them making the game would reveal its psychonauts 2 if it was the case. So there's no chance at all they'd keep it secret for more than a month or two beyond today. They aren't making the backers sign an NDA, so they are free to tell about the process.

IMHO there's ZERO chance its psychonauts 2.

I'll throw $15 at it since its a chance to see a game developed from scratch, and I trust the psychonaut devs not to put out a crappy game. The documentary should be the best ever of a game development process, with its monthly updates released as the game is in progress of being made. All other documentaries I've seen are at released at the end of the process and have a lot of the in between steps removed.
