The original protagonist planned out for Psychonauts a doublefine creation! Dart was a cool dude with a lot of character and i really liked his original design, but i haven’t seen a lot of references of him around, so here is a few concept images of him that Ive piled up from the Doublefine tumblr. He also makes a quick appearance in the final cinematic peeking around behind a outhouse (and in a couple of coach oleanders mind notes!)
little interesting things:
When coach oleander tries to probe Raz’s mind in the opening, he says that Raz’s name starts with a “D” referencing Dart.
The reasons for Darts character design change was he was too hard to animate! The designers also didn’t want his long stocking cap to be confused as a ponytail and everyone think he was a girl!
