Out of Nowhere, Psychonauts Gets an Update, Achievements, Ported to Mac, and an iOS App
Around six years after the release of the stellar, stellar Psychonauts, which also means six years after the amazing title bombed to bits on the sales charts because back in 2005, gamers apparently didn’t like playing one of the best video games ever made, Double Fine’s masterpiece is getting a little more attention. Along with the somewhat maligned (due to its difficulty) Meat Circus level being “slightly” modified, the PC version of the game will be getting Steam Play cloud saves, ported to OS X via Steam, and 35 Steam achievements. Along with these updates, Double Fine also released a Psychonauts iOS app, dubbed the Psychonauts Vault Viewer!, to commemorate the Mac release of Psychonauts. The app allows users to browse through the character’s memory vaults, which display funny, charming, and sad stories that shaped the personalities of some of the game’s characters. The app will cost you a cool nothing, in that it is free.
Of course, Tim Schafer couldn’t have commented on the update without being hilarious, saying Double Fine are really excited “to finally be answering fans’ requests for a more difficult Meat Circus.” The game is available for $9.99, and instead of Geekosystem’s usual end of the day video, we’re going to leave you with a few pictures of Boyd after the break. If you’ve never seen a milkman ascend within a column of milk bottles, or have never stared into the cold, dark eyes of milksanity, now’s your chance.
