A Cult Favorite
Psychonauts is a third-person adventure platformer game by Double Fine Productions released in 2005 for Windows, Xbox, and PlayStation 2.
The game follows the adventures of young psychic named Raz who has always wanted to be a Psychonaut, an elite group of psychic secret agents. He escapes his life in the circus and breaks into the Psychonauts' secret training facility. A string of events ensues and it is up to Raz to save the day. He has in his arsenal an array of psychic powers such as levitation, telekinesis, and mind projection.
Pyschonauts was helmed by Tim Chafer, who is best known for his previous critically acclaimed works Grim Fandango, The Secret of Monkey Island, Broken Age, and Full Throttle when he was still with LucasArts. He left and founded Double Fine Productions.
The game earned critical acclaim for its gameplay, story, game design, and art direction. However, it tanked commercially. But what it lost in the market it gained back in terms of fans, earning a solid cult following.
A sequel, Psychonauts 2, is confirmed to be in the works.
