Psychonauts, Double Fine’s first and possibly even finest game, will finally be making its way to the PlayStation Network next week as a PS2 Classic.
It may not have been a commercial success back in 2005, but this platformer has gathered quite an impressive following over the years due to its fantastic writing and unique sense of style. The concept of a young psychic bringing down a conspiracy by entering the minds of dangerous men may not seem like something a whole bunch of people would get behind, but developer Tim Schafer just has a knack for creative memorable and fun games. If you’ve enjoyed Double Fine’s recent work, such as Iron Brigade or Costume Quest, that really won’t mean a thing since this is nothing like either of those titles. But, you’ll still love Psychonauts, because it’s just a damn fine game.
Any plans on picking this game up next week when it lands on the Network? Did you get a chance to play it on the PS2? Express yourself down in the comments, or be an even cooler person and talk up the forums.
