Bad marketing maybe.

BTW I'm reading this forum because I already bought the game. :D
But since we have a discount now, I took the opportunity and bought it for a friend too, who was also starting to be interested in the game.

Good. You won't be disappointed, although the wonky difficulty curve might throw you off at times (just keep at it, it's how I got through).

Waiting for the game to download, shout-boy :)

(I already have an original copy of the game in my shelf, but I spent the 2€ just for the sake of the comfort having it in my Steam account.)

Eek!

I did my bit and bought the game. Absolutely no idea if it will work on Vista x64, but at 1 it's worth a shot.

The game was overshadowed by multiple highly anticipated releases at the time, IIRC, and that's why it didn't sell well. The publisher picked a bad time to release the game. Sad but true...

Anyway, yeah, if you haven't ever played this game, you need to buy this. There is no excuse not to at $2 for such a great title.

Haha you totally stole my idea, when I saw Psychonauts on sale I immediately went on forums and wanted to start this exact thread :D

I had it on CD (DVD?) back in the day, but that was long time ago. Purchased. They don't make games like this anymore :( (Scrapland, anyone?)

I`m on the forums while the game downloads :p

Win 7 64bit here, if it does not work, then it was only 1 so i am not bothered, i have picked up some cool little titles from these cheapy sales so far (Alpha Prime, Prey) etc etc

Alpha Prime was crap but good :D
Prey was great, but i lost my save file and have never got around to restarting it :mad:

Agreed, I almost bought this game a few times for full price or more (for the xbox version) but I'm glad I waited to see if there was a deal...$2=no excuse to not buy this game!

This was the easiest decision ever right up there with buying TF2 for $2.50; deals like this make me and my wallet very happy.

Can owners of the game please verify that it works on your computer? After the demo not working, I'm hesitant to buy it.

Having the same issue as well, and I'd send a ticket to Steam. Hope they resolve it in time too, so that I could grab another couple of copies for another two friends.

Wonder why I have friends who don't even appreciate Tim Shafer and "the most awesome video game evar". I should have unfriended them in the first place!!

This game was developed by the same team that made Day of The Tentacle.

How much more of a recommendation do you people need?





PS. Gief Day of The Tentacle on Steam plix.

If it doesn't work on x64 7 now, it will later. Especially since Valve is prompt with things. I mean, look at how fast L4D2 came out.

Sramota
01-27-2010, 02:05 AM
Don't care if I can make it work or not,
I can say I own it.
That's worth 2€ by itself.
(Don't even care that apparently some slow uhmerican thinks 2$=2€ in this case.

Same issue here. Mind you like the past four times this month :mad: it wont be resolved in time to get in on the deal.

Why do so many people (like the person I quoted above) think that Valve is in full control of every game on their store including "making it work"? They also proceed to blame Valve for every game that does not. This isn't Valve's game so it's not Valve's responsibility. It already works just fine on Windows Vista and 7 (32 and 64 bit editions) so the operating system is NOT the problem if you can't get it to run. Something else is causing issues.

OH MAH GAWD. STOP READING OR YOU WILL DIE!!!

Some of us are trying to find out important information about the game before committing to a purchase. I already bought my copy, but I did not find out if I can get widescreen resolutions going. Nothing wrong with doing a little homework.

Are you aware how old this game is?

Also, it works for me on xp 32 bit, vista 32 bit and win 7 64 bit, people just are stupid.

StrongMAD

I'm sure people are stupid, DoReMi, but this game crashes like crazy and I've no idea how to fix it. In the 'gloria's theater' level the game slows to a halt (6100+ AMD, 4870 Radeon gfx, 2MB, Win XP).

So far I've tried:
Windowed mode,
Set affinity to 1 processor
Set priority to realtime
Lower dx_level in startup (not even sure this gets passed to the game)
Full update of drivers (audio + video)

And none of these help. Feel free to say something constructive to help those of us with problems.

2MB? That might be your problem right there!

Seriously though, have you tried tinkering with the graphics settings in the game? Maybe there's one feature that doesn't like your card or w/e? Try setting it all to minimum, and if things improve go up from there.

Also it could have issues with your sound card? I know mine gives me trouble in a few games, but its an ancient SB Live. When I have problems in games, turning off Hardware/3D sound in the game or lowering the Sound Hardware Acceleration in Windows usually helps.

I think Psychonauts crashed to desktop maybe 5-6 times on me during my playthrough from start to finish, and had slowdowns in some areas with the game dropping to 30fps when turning around... (C2D E8400, 9600GT 512MB, 3GB RAM, XP Pro 32 bit.)

StrongMAD
04-14-2010, 10:22 AM
Good catch, 2MB ;-) Should be 2GB of course...

I've tried all graphical settings at minimum, all the sound settings (including turning sound all the way off) and nothing seems to work. Weirdly the slow down stops half-way up the ladder to change the 'mood lighting' and the game runs fine, but at the bottom in the theater itself the game slows below 1fps and eventually just hangs.

Hey, screw you! i bought this game twice. Once on the Xbox, and once when it was 2 dollars on steam. I was so excited for this game for months before it was released
