Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, the virtual reality puzzle game from Double Fine Productions, will be released Feb. 21 exclusively on PlayStation VR, the studio announced today.

Rhombus of Ruin is a stand-alone game that bridges the gap between the original Psychonauts, which was released in 2005, and the upcoming Psychonauts 2.

The puzzle game stars Razputin “Raz” Aquato, the protagonist of the first game, and players will solve puzzles with his psychic powers from a first-person perspective. Abilities include clairvoyance, telekinesis and pyrokinesis. Rhombus of Ruin’s story continues from where that of Psychonauts left off. In case you were wondering, the title of the game refers to a region of the ocean that’s “as deadly as two Bermuda Triangles back to back,” according to Double Fine.

Psychonauts 2 is set for release in 2018; Double Fine raised money to develop the sequel on the crowdfunding platform Fig, pulling in $3.83 million a year ago.
