VIDEO Tim Schafer talks Psychonauts VR game

Who ever thought that the rather spiffy 2006 platformer PSychonauts would get this much love.

Not only is the game getting a full on sequel set for release in 2018 and just for extra kicks it's getting a VR tie in title as well. Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin is intended to bridge the gap between the first and second games and also show off some tasty tech.

Exactly what the game is has been a bit of a mystery up to now, so we're happy to see the legendary Tim Schafer showing off a bit of a level in this video from IGN.

It's a very creative take on translating the world of Psychonauts to VR, where it might not quite work to have so much action taking place. VR is still in its infancy and it's going to be awhile before platformers work with these kinds of systems.

Here's a video without commentary that let's you see the opening few minutes of the game.

As Tim of Legend says, we're hoping to see this game before the end of 2016.
