The Humble Store is giving away another old-time classic as part of its End of Summer Sale (opens in new tab): Psychonauts, the Double Fine adventure-platformer about a kid with a cool hat who goes off to summer camp.
I have mixed feelings about Psychonauts. I loved the writing, the voice acting, and the bizarre, beautiful game world that was filled with things to discover. But the platforming could be repetitive, and often outright infuriating. I never did finish it—I ran out of patience midway through the godawful Meat Circus, and decided I was close enough to the end to call it a day.
I've never gone back, in part because I don't want to spoil the magic of the memories, but "free" is awfully tempting, and according to the Wiki the level has been made considerably easier in the Steam release. Which is what you'll get with this Humble freebie: Go here (opens in new tab), add it to your cart, and after you check out you'll be emailed a Steam code.
Since we're here, a few other Humble Store deals of note:
- Metro Redux bundle (opens in new tab): $7.50
- Darkest Dungeon (opens in new tab): $10
- The Talos Principle (opens in new tab): $10
- Luftrausers (opens in new tab): $2.50
- And one more, let's see... How about Shadow Warrior 2 Deluxe (opens in new tab) for $25 (the regular edition (opens in new tab) is on for $20, but the soundtrack alone is worth the extra fiver)
The Humble Store End of Summer Sale runs until 10 am PT on September 21, while Psychonauts will be free until the same time on September 16.
