A Psychic Odyssey Through the Minds of Misfits, Monsters, and Madmen

This classic action/adventure platformer from acclaimed developers Double Fine Productions follows the story of a young psychic named Raz. 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. But this is no average psychic summer camp! A mysterious villain has kidnapped Raz’s fellow campers and stolen their brains. Now he must use his psychic powers of Telekinesis, Levitation, and most of all his ability to project himself into the minds of others--to find the loose noodles and keep them from falling into the wrong hands. Fight mental demons! Uncover hidden memories! Sort emotional baggage! Explore the fantastic realm of the inner mind! Join the Psychonauts!

Customer Reviews

Most frustrating game ever on pc!

This is THE WORST game I've ever played on a pc. It goes from boring, idiotic arrowhead quests to impossible and near impossible puzzles/battles. It's as if the makers of this game absolutely hate their gaming customers! The puzzles, quest items, etc. are often so badly designed/placed that you're required to attempt dozens of times before you succeed — do they think stupid and frustrating repetition is fun? It felt like the game was set up to make you keep failing, because the way the camera moves at the last second or some object is in the way so you can't see your destination or whatever,. but when you land after missing there is an arrowhead for you to get. This must mean they knew you'd land there! Truly, it feels like a sadist's game.

There is no way to succeed in one battle with a giant where the actions required can't be done — WASD + space bar + shift key + right-click all while running around on the outside of a cube and trying to find and destroy a machine that will kill the giant! I'd need four hands and three pairs of eyes and I'd still fail because the giant only needs two steps to MY 200 steps to overcome me and stomp me!

Love Love Love

If you like classic Ps2 games like spyro, sly cooper, jak and daxter, youll love this game!
Its full of lots of colorful, gorgous worlds and adventures and each level is a puzzle that makes you think. This game really has something for everyone.
I did encounter a few bugs here and there, but nothing that effected my gameplay much.
I would say definitley the best game ive bought on iTunes. The Cave would be my second favorite, which is also by the same makers. I'm very strongly considering buying the third game this maker has available on iTunes.


In the new update, i lost all my saves, even one that i was saving for a long time for meat circus when i was ready to do it. Im really sad, but its fine going throught the game again. the shadows now look really white for me, and in the middle of talking it cuts off, so i have to use subtitles. Overall this is a great game, Its design and plot is really creepy, just my style! Even with bugs, this game is one of the best games ive ever played.
