Psychonauts 2 is 66% off on Steam right now alongside other Double Fine discounts

Double Fine Productions is having a massive online sale right now and it’s the perfect time to snag all of the Psychonauts titles on PC at a deep discount. Psychonauts 2 is the crown jewel of the sale, as it’s currently 66% off.

Psychonauts 2 is an inventive platformer that deftly comments on mental health topics through the journey of Raz, a 10-year-old circus performer-turned-psychic who can jump into anyone’s mind. Every enemy in the game is some manifestation of a mental ailment — you get to fight off physical manifestations of issues folks struggle with every day.

The title is only $20.39 on Steam right now, which is 66% off its normal price of $60. You won’t be completely lost if you don’t play the previous games in the series first, but we recommend it. Luckily, the first entry is on sale as well — Psychonauts is only $3 (80% off). Psychonauts In The Rhombus Of Ruin, a virtual reality game, is also on sale but only through the PlayStation Store.

On top of the company’s flagship game being deeply discounted, there are also sales on some of its lesser-known titles like Broken Age, which is hand-animated and features celebrity voice actors Elijah Wood and Jack Black, and Brütal Legend, an action-adventure game that is “set in a universe somewhere between Lord of the Rings and Spinal Tap.”

You can view a full summary of the sale on Double Fine’s website. There isn’t a set date end date for the sale, but we know it’s live right now. Don’t miss out on snagging these games on the cheap.

The best badges in Psychonauts 2
Raz near a brain in Psychonauts 2.

You would be forgiven for forgetting, but Raz is still just a kid who ran away from home to join the Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp in hopes of becoming a true Psychonaut. At the start of Psychonauts 2, Raz has moved on from just being a camper into a full-on Psychonaut ... well, at least as an intern anyway. Still, in the canon of the game, only days have passed since his first adventure wrapped up, and the themes of the original camp are still present.

Raz's psychic powers are represented, just like in the original, as old-school camp merit badges. Many badges from the first game make a return in Psychonauts 2, functioning mostly the same as they did previously, along with several new and exciting powers to play with and upgrade. Psychic abilities have many uses, but not all are created equal. Some may even start out feeling bland but could end up becoming some of the best. Here is everything you need to know about the best badges in Psychonauts 2.

Psychonauts 2: Nuggets of wisdom locations

Psychonauts 2 is one of the few collect-a-thon-style games to come out in recent memory. There are hundreds of figments to pick up, challenge cards, keys, vaults, and tons more to collect across the various mental worlds you dive into. All of them are unique to the world and themes of Psychonauts 2 and fairly clever as well. Along with the Half-A-Minds, which you can pick up to raise Raz's max HP, the Nugget of Wisdom item is another collectible that can give you a permanent boost to your abilities.

Nuggets of Wisdom are basically an instant rank increase. Each one you get will boost you one rank, earning you Intern Credits that you need for upgrading all the psychic powers you will be using throughout the adventure. Ranking up can be time-consuming normally, but there are 29 Nuggets of Wisdom across all the levels in Psychonauts 2 to help give your brain a mental boost. Here's where you can find them all, level by level.
