Psychonauts is a wacky new platform game by Majesco games, more specifically Tim Schafer, the guy behind Grim Fandango. It's a psychedelic platform game. The conceit is you go inside people's minds where you navigate all their psychological weirdness. Mostly an excuse for some very wacky level design, as you can see from the screenshots. In the vein of Rayman or Beyond Good and Evil, only trippier.
The reviews are great and the PC demo is definitely worth trying out. Oddly the game is value priced at $30 on PC, but $50 on consoles.
