Stay on topic. This'll be mailed to Tim Schafer. Seriously.

Dear Tim Schafer

Hey, Tim Schizzle, this is one of those dumb fan-mail letters that swarms your inbox and stuff, right? Or are

you just too cool for fanmail and your slavemonkey dawgs burn it before it gets near your internet. Yes.

Burning e-mail. Trust me, I've tried. But besides that, on a different random tangent.

I'm sure you're busy escaping flaming trains, supervising the 2-headed-baby, making people sew, ship and sell

(Hey! Alliteration! My Lit teacher would be crying in joy if I got an F last year.) that 2-headed-baby's evil

clone army, devouring infants, et cetera. But the entire internet, those who have left the Internet, and the

Unternet would probably like a Psychonauts 2. So I'm putting together one of those crappy wishlists 1000

people sign and send to the company, to get a sequel, but have none of their requests fulfilled. That sort of

thing.

So, this'll be basically your first chance to block my E-Mail address. But also I wanna know how to get my

foot in the door as something around creative director or writer. Because I'm definitely in the path of a

radical writer. Seriously. You can check out my Vernon-related junk over at that fanfiction site.

And some random crap, a footer, and a cool signature goes down here. But instead you can have a more fun

one: imagine your own.

But wait, this letter isn't over. Some random crap is that I saw your thing on Icons and stuff (I wanted to know about last years' hot new releases, so I turned on G4) and all my family thinks I'm pretty much your clone. Seriously.

I can do stuff (like sleep, or eat pizza and watch TV 'til 4 AM) for Double Fine too, but I can't legally work there (or here, since there's no way I can get to San Francisco) until I'm old enough to furnish a work permit, next year. Yes, I'm that young.

Anyway, enjoy your last few minutes before 100 other people decide to send you incompleted versions of the wishlists. And if I were you, I'd stay away from public transportation for a while. I'm gonna go, because I was just doing something cool but I just decided I have ADHD. 'kay bye.

So yes. Wishlist goes here.

Bullet form please, no randomness.

-Galochios weaved into storyline.
-More Raz/Lili.
-Vernon.

Heck, even write up little essays on what'd be a good plot line, anything. Seriouslizzle.

(DELETE THIS PART IN LETTER. Can we write more than in bullet form? I so totally am.)

Since I know you're a busy guy and all, eating small children and all that jazz, the chances of a Psychonauts 2 are slim. But not slim in a good way. Slim is good if it's for health, but CHANCES that re slim are bad. But, Psychonauts is all I live for nowadays. If you were to make a God-given sequal, this is what I'd like to be in it:

-The option to sit. There are some places in the game that you just need to sit down and look at. Very pretty stuff. Like unicorns.
-Oleander. WE NEED MORE OF HIM, DAWG. He seemed more of a secondary character, and he had one of the best character plots in the history of coolality.
-If you could build on Milla, I would buy a banner that declared my love for you across my chest all the time.

Since you and the mystical team of working elves can pretty much pull off anything, I'm okay with anything you do. Anything. Because if I had a life, I wouldn't know who you guys were.

-Squid

(Yes. Random junk goes in these here parentheses.)

-Definitely add some cool hidden posing features or something on the PC, along with a way to get rid of the HUD. Sexy screenshot time.

-A larger diversity of "outside world" areas too. I wanna return to the Asylum, sleep there, go back to the Psychonauts HQ, warp to the baby-eat dimension, and chill at camp, then go to a giant factory that's mass-producing Psychic Jammers to reverse a Psychic's power and kill them. You know, cool stuff.

-If a bunch of people say one thing, have them say it badly, too fast, and not in sync. If Raz and Milla go "Oh no, Sasha!" have Milla start saying it first and finish saying it last, while shifting tones in her voice. No wait. Don't do that.

-Swimming. Have Raz learn to swim.

-Mini-games and diverse gameplay. Riding a Psycho-Jet or Buggy, or some mini-games would be rad.

-Meat Circus 2: Electric Boogaloo, featuring no meat, but instead a giant circus OF WATER. No wait. Don't do that either. But seriously, make a circus beginning, not a circus finale. Too predictable in the latter.

-Make it good...please.

Purple Squid

-I, Squid the Mighty Politician, would enjoy some Sasha/Milla interaction. They seriously need to talk more. I realise that you cut a lot of the pimped stuff out due to the Elements raging against you, but still. I love you.

Purple Squid

(pretty much sums everything I was going to say up.)

DarthAve

-MORE G-MEN!!!! Everybody loves the g-men!

-Let Raz be able to change his outfit. He can go from goggle look to Psychonauts suit and maybe wear his Dr. Loboto disguise.

-work in out beloved asylum friends to the story.

Those would be awesome!!

Purple Squid
10-10-2005, 06:30 PM
-I want it to make me cry. Seriously. Psychonauts made me cry, and I want you to do it again.

(ON. TOPIC. Cheez is mailing this list!)

-I want nicely animated minor children. No more cheap one-hand-movements and crazy mouths.

-Also, if you're going to put in new minor characters, try to make them as fantastic as all of these. They're fantastic! Like corn dogs.

Klia
10-10-2005, 07:11 PM
-I would really like it if you could actually burn the people in the camp
-More interaction inbetween the camp counselers. They all seemed to be doing their own things
-Crispin. I know a lot of people are repulsed by him but we need to know if he was eaten alive by Fred or not
-What happened to Loboto? He couldn't have died so quickly
-Remember that Sheegor is teamed up with Sasha.
-I would like to affect the kids paths. Like you could actually help find the bear or join Maloof's mob. They would find the bear or make a mob if you help them. Just for fun, you know
-More Scott C. references. That 2HB figment and Strongman figment rocked. As did the knight in Gloria's world
-Show us what happened to the asylum people.

(the only problem is... the 'bear' was Linda.)

Klia
10-10-2005, 07:14 PM
-And keep on posting pictures of yourself in the game. That was awesome. You know that picture you have on DF.com where you go to "About DF" and there is this huge picture of all of you? Put the guy in the first row, third from the left. Add him in. But totally forget about Tim Schafer, yeah the blue jacket wearing guys cooler.
-On second thought put in the girl with the green shirt. I have that same shirt.

Klia

(I was just using that as an example. A bad example.)

(Revised)

-let us affect the camper's paths so it's different every time.

- fight the Galochios
- Lili will actually notice when Raz looks under her skirt with TK

DarthAve
10-10-2005, 07:55 PM
(this is for Tim Schafer, but not about Psychonauts 2)

-command Scott C. To draw more Psychonauts comics for the home page. I've probably learned "Eating outdoors" by heart and am planning to use it as a monologue.

Klia
10-10-2005, 08:21 PM
-find an actual use for the concept drawing of Oleander's shoes.
-More Bobby. He was an awesome bully.

-On a whole. More moderatly overpriced Psychonauts merchandise. Seriously, I'm sad I cannot stuff my house with more usless crap.

-I third that? They should offer pre packeged Psychonauts costumes so you won't have to spend that much to look like a G-Man!

~Being able to come in contact with other psychonauts
~The ability to go into everyone's mind, even if some are just a few extra models and a sound clip
~More awesome powers, and power combination, like a flaming shield
~LONGER
~Multiplayer and re-play ability
~First person mode
~More Ford, I want to know who caused ford's lost of thought
~Game enhancing extras, like if there was a first person mode, being able to change goggles and have the game tint change
~Read-able psychonauts comics ingame
~A system where using a power more often makes it stronger, and using it when only needed makes it weaker
~More flying like levitation, less like a bounce
~Bigger camp

-Lili's Mind. Though I'm sure it'd be a giant shrine to Raz.
-Have the campers get demented, have to save them, Vernon's mind a gigantic novel.
-Some kind of online download things.
-COSTUME CUSTOMIZABILITY. SERIOUSLY. THAT'S WHAT YOU CAN USE THE ONLINE DOWNLOAD FOR.
-Also, make a map-making wizard kind of thing, so we can download other peoples' brains to our X-Box/Memory Card/PC. And play them.
-Get slapped/psi-slapped if you look up Lili's skirt. Seriously. She goes like, 300 feet up and sticks her bum out at you. It'd just be humorous.
-Interactivity with the campers.
-LONGERRRR

Yeah, cuz Tim. We need ridiculous features. Seriously.

Klia
10-10-2005, 09:37 PM
(Multiplayer was something I missed.)

-co-op?

-Co-op, with like, D'artagnan or Black Velvetopia Raz.

Heck, even 4-way co-op with Lili, Raz, Dart, and BV Raz.

Seriously.

-Driving, but no boring collecting, maybe 1 annoying race.

-Little more difficulty...Meat Circus isn't that hard for a gaming expert.

(I was totally kidding about that last part. With the MC.)

-Co-op sounds cool, have Raz get like, a device called the um... Skitzophrenitron or something, that allows him to split into 4 different people once inside a mind.

Klia
10-11-2005, 07:47 PM
-Possibly have different difficulty levels?

KingCheez

-Cool, ridiculously large overworld.

-Everything that made Jak 3 cool, minus the needless attitude and old people.

10-11-2005, 08:57 PM
-I've decided I don't want a Psychonauts 2.

Zetz Darke
10-11-2005, 09:35 PM
A Psychonauts 2 would be alright as long as it didn't suck. I mean, most movies do...but games don't necessarily have to follow that pattern. I dunno, I guess I'll decide that after KH2 comes out in (Is it February now?) whatever.

If there was one:
-Super crazy new powers to play with.
-A good new villian (Not a crappy sequel villian...but a really good, creative, worthy of Psychonauts villian.)
-More Sasha and Milla. (Not necessarily together...but just in general.)

Purple Squid

(Cheez, I'm not so sure about this list. If all we want Psychonauts 2 to have is 'stuff that made these other games cool', why are we asking THEM to make a new game? I mean, I bought the game because it was different, and because it didn't have what all the other games have. Suggestions for the plot are okay, but I don't know about asking them to put stuff in... Tim's game have always done well in the entertainment section as well as in the surprise section. If you could cut my wishes out, that would be great. I'd just rather Double Fine make a game with their own minds, not the fan's. But the sit option would be way cool.)
