This game has taken on legendary, almost mythic proportions…but mostly because we never got a follow-up effort, which is a travesty.
Double Fine's fantastic platformer from last generation, Psychonauts , is one of the most beloved titles in existence. Just ask around. If you missed it, two things- 1. Shame On YOU, and 2. You m ust buy it off the PlayStation Network when it hits the PS2 classics next week.
As announced over at the PlayStation Blog , this gem will go downloadable on Tuesday. The game follows the story of a young psychic cadet who dives into dangerous minds and halts evil conspiracies. Some of the best levels in gaming history exist in this one adventure; Milkman Conspiracy, Black Velvetopia, and Waterloo. It was pretty amazing, and I'm not even a platforming fan.
And hey, if enough people buy it, maybe publishers will be more keen on letting Tim Schafer do a sequel. Remember, it isn't his fault; as he has said many times in the past, he has tried and tried and tried . But it isn't a shooter so you know, no go. …sorry, just a little bitter.
