It's Mental Health Awareness month and for us here at Double Fine, this is an essential time to live up the messages in our games and Psychonauts in particular. It is our hope that we crafted a world that is empathetic and caring when it comes to a variety of issues. Of course, even though we had countless discussions and feedback from consultants, it's always good to hear more perspectives.
Enter Dr. Mick! He's a YouTube content creator with a love for great games and, oh yeah, he's a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with a PhD in Human Development. Recently he sat down to play Psychonauts 2 in a Let's Play that the team found entertaining an illuminating. You can see the first part down below.
If you're looking for a chance to relive our latest adventure with extra insights and infectious laughter, this is a fantastic chance. And look, maybe he'll say something like "no one would violate the Hippocratic Oath like that" but that's useful for us to know and education for anyone listening. So wind down tonight with a look at Psychonauts from a more professional viewpoint. it's a mixture of insight and laughs that shouldn't be missed.
