23. Re: Notch Offers to Fund Psychonauts 2 Feb 7, 2012, 17:33 Beamer

So, no one really liked the game-play of Psychonauts or Brutal Legend. But those of us who played them anyway have fond memories of the art direction and storyline. Maybe Tim Schafer should just become a film director.

I disliked the art direction of Psychonauts. I found most of the characters brutally ugly in an unappealing way. A distracting way.

I also hate 3D platforming.

Tried starting the game twice, and while I dug the concept and plot I found myself thinking about other things I needed to get done while walking around and trying to find a way to collect crap. I'm sure that, had I played longer, I would have gotten the hang of the controls, but I never felt in control of my jumping/swinging and found running around in the world uncompelling (I'm making up words!)

I wanted to love it but couldn't. I'll probably give it another shot sometime.
