This classic action/adventure platformer from acclaimed developers Double Fine Productions follows the story of a young psychic named Razputin. In his quest to join the Psychonauts--an elite group of international psychic secret agents--he breaks into their secret training facility: Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp.

Fight mental demons! Uncover hidden memories! Sort emotional baggage! Explore the fantastic realm of the inner mind! Join the Psychonauts!
Psychonauts is not a flawless game. The controls are wonky, the difficulty curve is weird, the graphics are passable, and some of the levels are weaker than others. However . . . when I think of my experiences playing the game I have to force myself to think of any negatives, and when I think of my favorite gaming moments ever parts of Psychonauts positively leap to mind. It would be impossible to discuss what makes Psychonauts so wonderful without spoiling some of the magic; when a game as unique and imaginative as this is around all that can be done is to play it and experience it for yourself.
