Double Fine has announced that the Fig crowdfunding push for Psychonauts 2 has been successful.

The project has now surpassed its $3.3m goal, with the total currently standing at $3,357,197. Donations have been made by some 20,717 backers.

The campaign still has five days left and will remain live, with studio boss Tim Schafer promising that every donation will help to improve the final product during a video update.

“It means so much, your support and all the love you’ve been sending us,” he said “We’re really excited about making this game and we can’t do it without you.

“Every dollar we make goes into making the game better and giving us more time to polish. We don’t just want to make Psychonauts 2, we want to make an amazing Psychonauts 2.”

Psychonauts 2 is the first campaign on new crowdfunding campaign Fig to allow public investment. Previously the site has only accepted funding from accredited investors, presenting potential supporters with a curated line-up of games campaign.

We interviewed the creators of Fig back in August, asking how the new platform has attracted the attention of Double Fine, Obsidian and inXile, as well as Harmonix and 5th Cell.
