Psychonauts 2 Accessibility Features
Fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of Psychonauts 2 and now Double Fine has unveiled some of the accessibility options available on release. On top of fully remappable controls and larger subtitles, Psychonauts 2 will also have a designated Invincibility Mode you can turn on in the options menu. This will turn off most forms of damage to the main character Raz, including enemy damage and environmental hazards. It’s clear disabled gamers were the motivation behind many of these options with stated affirmations from the development team like, “All people should be able to enjoy games. All ages, all possible needs.” Psychonauts 2 is already looking to be even more accessible than its predecessor! Look forward to more accessibility news leading up to release on August 25.
