Psychonauts 2 update (12-2019)?
Long and short is this... Where are our updates on this project?
- The last update on 27 NOV amounted to "Oops, forgot to update... Holiday time, Buy our other games!!"
- The one before that, 4 1/2 months, a "E3 was cool, Please Get 'RAD'" Update
- Before that, 1 1/2 month, A "Joined with Jack Black, Some rewards shipped, Asif Joined, RAD is comming!!" update
You know what is sorely missing from all these updates? ANYTHING ABOUT THE ACTUAL GAME WE PAID FOR!!!!
Don't get me wrong, all these things are interesting..... but I didn't pay for your stories about schmoozing with Jack Black... I paid for Psychonauts 2 and updates thereof... But I and the rest of your backers are getting concerned that the updates are so scarce that it makes the turnout for Johnny Depp's "Lone Ranger" movie look like a box office smash hit...
Furthermore, the lack of communication.. I've asked questions on the site, I've sent e-mails... I have NOT GOT ONE reply...
Now I, as many others have, have spent a lot of money to back this project because we believe in it and your company... but if y'all don't come through soon... you will have a revolt and lawsuits are sure to soon follow!! I am not saying I will be, but you got a lot of peoples hopes up... to use our money to kick it with Jack Black and Asif and Goto E3 to give them the update your backers should have gotten ... HOORAY FOR YOU!!!

I just found out about the Microsoft acquisition... and I too have many concerns. I went back, and I hadn't received an update since November of 2019. Even on Fig.co Its not showing my backer status... so I cant even post or comment on things there. I loved Psychonauts 1, and when I first heard of the campaign in January 2016 I knew I had to get in on this. I'm not even sure i received all of the backer rewards that was promised in the campaign.
I feel the same way. Severe lack of updates for the past year even though the game has been delayed several times now. I thought the Microsoft acquisition would help with this. Well now I'm holding out for the summergames showcase on the 23rd and hope we see something. Tired of the wait.

So believe me when I say, I understand the Pandemic puts a hamper on things... but over 2 months ago, you all put out one update that kindof said that you all were back on the case, but from home. Great.... it has been total radio silence since then. I am not saying you have to give us every detail, but those of us that have backed your project deserve a "Hey we're still here.. and while were here.. here's a small update."
Why? because many of us have put our money into THIS PROJECT since 2015 (I didn't know about it then, but there had to be a lot for you all to continue). Many of us came in along the way once we found out... but we back the project and are left holding a receipt..... with nothing else to show for it for 1,2 or maybe even 5 years... I could see if this was only year one of development... or even maybe year two... but we are WAY beyond that.. we are past year 5 now... and still... only a receipt.
Your fans (including myself) want this project to come out and to succeed... but please DO NOT take us for granted. We supported you because we believe in you... you owe us more than what you've given as far as updates.
