Against his father's wishes, a young psychic prodigy named Razputin ("Raz" for short) leaves his life in the circus and sneaks into Whispering Rock, a summer camp where young psychics like him can learn to use their powers, and maybe someday become "Psychonauts", psychic secret agents who battle the forces of evil. Raz manages to impress the camp's head counselor, Morceau Oleander, as well as visiting Psychonauts Sasha Nein and Milla Vodello, who agree to let him stay... but only until his father comes to pick him up. But something's amiss at Whispering Rock: a sinister force is stealing the brains from Raz's fellow campers, leaving them mindless, TV-obsessed zombies. Raz decides to put his growing arsenal of psychic powers to good use and investigate the strange goings-on. Along the way, he'll journey into the minds of those around him, and face perils ranging from mad scientists to giant monsters to the psychotic mental constructs lurking within the deranged minds of insane asylum ... Written by Andrew P.

Did You Know?


Originally Psychonauts was going to be published by Microsoft, and was set to be an Xbox exclusive. Development though got caught between the transition of the original Xbox and the Xbox 360. Microsoft wanted an Xbox 360 port, but was not willing to give the additional funding to do so. Microsoft subsequently pulled out of publishing since they didn't want to soley release the game for the original Xbox, and funding for an Xbox 360 port couldn't be established. Eventually Majesco picked up publishing for the game, and Psychonauts then became a multiplatform title for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox as well as the PC. See more »


Ford Cruller: Aw, poor little thing.
Raz: That poor little thing just tried to kill me about eight different ways!
Ford Cruller: Well that's not it's fault. This was once just a normal sized lungfish, minding it's own business in a mucus lined air bubble beneath a semi dry lake bed. But judging by the work done on it I suspect Maury has mutated it, accelerated it's growth, and has placed an implant in it's brain to make it do his evil bidding.
Raz: Aw, poor little thing.

You'd Be Crazy To Miss It
11 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Why hasn't everyone played this game yet? It's original, funny, intelligent and a total blast to play. The story of Raz, a pre-adolescent psychic training to become a mental warrior at a deranged summer camp, is brilliantly conceived by madman Tim Shaffer, voiced by top-quality actors and written with a biting wit. The worlds you visit are the minds of insane people, and pack enough innovation in each one to easily carry ten games. From the Stratego-esquire levels of a man who thinks he's Napolean to the trippy, black-lit velvet villa of an artist with rage issues to the paranoid, topsy-turvey suburban neighborhood populated by double-agents, you'll find your greatest challenge in the game will be choosing which part you like the best. So people, please, track this down!
