Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of digital entertainment products, and Valve announce Psychonauts is now available on Steam, the leading online platform for PC games, for $19.99.
Psychonauts is Double Fine Productions' critically acclaimed, mind-bending comedic action / adventure about a young circus performer's desperate quest to save a summer camp for psychics from a mysterious, brain-stealing lunatic. Created by industry veteran Tim Schafer, designer of classic games such as Full Throttle and Grim Fandango, Psychonauts has received numerous awards, including game of the year from Eurogamer and, last week, the prestigious BAFTA.
"So for the press release. uh. man, it's tough because every single 'steam' related play on words has already been done," said Schafer. "Double Fine and Valve: With a love this hot, you know there's gotta be STEAM! How about that?"
Not content to simply craft a stunning play on words about Valve's full-featured broadband platform for the delivery and management of games, Schafer ordered award-winning cartoonist and Psychonauts art director Scott Campbell to create a special comic commemorating the warm digital relationship between Double Fine and Valve.
