This week offered a mix of good and bad news for iOS gaming. On the one hand, former iOS powerhouse Ngmoco announced layoffs, but we got some awesome news to offset that. It looks like old school adventure game superstars Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert could be making a new iOS adventure game funded entirely by Kickstarter users.
First released in 2005 for consoles and PC, Psychonauts charmed the pants off of many gamers with its eccentric brand of humor and fantastical settings—but its impact was barely felt at retail, and the lack of sales success likely killed the chances of a quick Mac port. Luckily, the action platformer became a cult favorite, and with the publishing rights back in the hands of creator Double Fine, it’s finally time for Mac gamers to experience this one-of-a-kind adventure via the Mac App Store or Steam.
