Microsoft adapts its game Psychonauts 2 to the Mac

It’s rare enough to be noticed: Microsoft-owned studio Double Fine has released the macOS and Linux version of Psychonauts 2! The title, released last summer on Xbox, PS4 and PC, is an excellent platform/action game full of funny inventions. It can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for €59.99. Those who already have a Steam key will be able to grab the Mac (or Linux) version for free.

To enjoy it, you will need a machine running macOS 10.14 and a little space on the hard drive, the game indeed weighs a little over 32 GB. This is good news for players on our platform, who could already play to Psychonauts 2 through Game Pass Ultimate. It is not common for Microsoft to adapt its “first party” games on macOS1 so let’s not spoil our pleasure!
