Yesterday, Geoff spoke about how no one wanted to make a sequel to that beloved Tim Schafer creation, Psychonauts. It’s a crying shame too, because the game was one of the most original and fun titles to appear on the PS2, and despite it not really raking in any cash, it still managed to become a cult hit over the years.
