If we have not made it clear before then we would like to state this fact again, Tim Schafer is a MAD GENIUS.
If you are up for scintillating stories, especially if you have to see through it on your own, then very few are there that really give you super Goosebumps to your whole body like that itching sensation from hugging that weird aunt of yours.
Raz leaves the circus where his family has been working since forever, and goes into this famous camp for the psychically gifted people where they are honed into spies for the government, the truth is of course known by none, because that is why it is fronted as a camp.
But the people behind this mystery know about that old psitanium, a meteor accident long ago that gave bears the ability of telekinesis and cougars the ability of pyrotechnics in the vicinity.
The whole town was affected and some of them became mentally (or psychically) gifted, and now the government is after them but Raz has started to feel something even fishier about the mysterious happenings around the camp and odd behaviors of his teachers.
Teleport into everyone’s mind, see their weird and mad worlds, find what aches them, fight their compulsions and dig even deeper and make them free to make the right decisions.
Inception got nothing on Psychonauts by any shot.
The game is presented in third person view, it is a platform game that includes many different elements to make a huge basket of engagingly awesome fun shorts.
But the technical details do not matter here, if you want to know how awesome playing this thing is then let us wrap this around your delicate minds like this…
You are a child of prodigy in excellence of psychic abilities (magic), you go into a camp where there are other psychic ability users (students) and the teachers are all weird and later turn out to be fatal threats to the children with their fully mastered psychic abilities.
That is Harry Potter right there but with loads of wacky mad powers and stupendously weird missions.
It’s like the food for the mad within us.
Use powers like telekinetic, pyrotechnics, levitation, invisibility and many others to do all sorts of crazy adventure, where “crazy” is unable to define the experience completely.
Created and directed by Tim Schafer, developed by Double Fine Productions and published by Majesco Entertainment (till 2010), and Double Fine Productions (from 2011) for the PC, Xbox, PS2, OS X, Linux and PS4.
If you always felt the need of a plot so mad it fascinates you into being one, a gameplay mechanics so unstably creative and entertainingly fun that it consumes you and a world so out of here that it makes you have a deep sigh, then Psychonauts is for you!
Play it and recommend it to as many as you can in the name of gaming.
Save thy soul and theirs as well!
