samskivert: Psychonauts (3)

16 July 2005

Let it be known that Tim Schafer and his colleagues at Double Fine are funny people. In addition to serving up a veritable banquet of humor, they took excellent advantage of the liberties afforded by making a game about the crazy worlds inside peoples’ heads. This resulted in some very memorable and clever level designs. The platforming itself was pretty good, but didn’t rub me quite as rightly as, say, Sly Cooper, which is a much fairer comparison than pulling out the big yardstick they call Mario. I look forward to more juicy fruit from their creative tree.
