Double Fine has revealed that Psychonauts 2 will feature an invincible switch as they believe that “all people should be able to enjoy games.”
Double Fine shared this news on Twitter in response to Xbox’s Twitter, saying that “hitting the game on the lowest difficulty still beats the game.”
“If you beat Psychonauts 2 with invincibility, you still beat P2.” Double Fine wrote. “All people should be able to enjoy games. All ages, all possible needs. It is a continuous and important process for our industry and a challenge we must meet. [sic]. The end of the day? We want you to have fun, laugh, to experience a story that affects you. On whatever terms you want. “
The studio also shared a satirical quote that throws fun at those online who try to track games and say that not everyone should play a game.
In response to the fake quote, and to emphasize the point, Double Fine added: “cool bud. You’re sooo cool!”
This debate about gambling problems has been going on for many years now, but the truth of the matter is that difficulties are relative to individual players in so many ways. By adding an invincible switch to Psychonauts 2, this in no way affects the player who wants to play on the most difficult difficulty. It only allows more players to enjoy a game that can only become their next favorite of all time.
Psychonauts 2 and its invincibility will be replaced on August 25, 2021 on Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, PS4 and PS5 via backward compatibility. Oh, and it will be available on Xbox Game Pass on day 1.
