Psst. Tim's Game Revealed, etc. 21 May, 2002, 17:52 / 1 comment

I'm a day or three late reporting on this, but at least now I have enough spare time to make this a decent update, so here goes...

Double Fine Productions, Tim Schafer's game company, has updated their site with "information" about their top-secret title, as well as up-to-date "news" about the goings-on in the company. Have a listen:
I'm actually writing this news update on Saturday and pretending it's Friday. The problem is, I can't remember anything that happened yesterday. I don't think anything did. Oh, wait! There was a big fire in the next alley over. Lots of smoke and firetrucks and-- wait, no, that was Thursday. Yesterday I don't think I did much. Possibly, I overslept.
In addition to these latest developments, Team X-Box has revealed the title of Double Fine's new slam-bang title: Psychonauts. Here's the description pulled from their site:
?Psychonauts? (Microsoft Game Studios). ?Psychonauts? is a wildly surreal action adventure game from Double Fine Productions developer Tim Schafer. It?s a game in which characters? personal paranormal powers are unlocked to plunge players into the minds of bizarre characters. Gamers journey deep into crazy worlds of infinite possibility to thwart the secret plan of an evil madman and realize the ultimate dream of joining an elite force of psychic superheroes, the Psychonauts. The game will be available spring 2003.
Sounds very promising.

    Somewhere on the TeamXBox forums is a post with 6 or so screenshots. Looks platformer-like.
