It was a close call, but Double Fine Productions has successfully funded Psychonauts 2 through fig.

The $3,300,000 target was reached with only 5 days remaining, and has already amounted nearly $40,000 extra at the time of writing. It’s not yet known whether any additional ‘stretch goals’ will be introduced in order to implement new features, but the extra cash will more than likely help ensure a more polished product.

The studio provided an update to celebrate the campaign’s success to fund one of their most sought after sequels.

“Holy Smokes! We did it you guys! Psychonauts 2 is now fully funded!

We want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making this possible. We’ve wanted to make this game for a long time, and now we finally can! So thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Still want to show your support? Not to worry, if you head to fig before January 12th you can pledge as little as $10 to get your name in the Psychonaut 2 credits. I did.
