Psychonauts Screensaver

Seeing as the official Psychonauts screensaver is so rubbish, I've made one of my own.

Theres 35 images in it and I've used a resampling filter so the images should resize and look fine at any resolution.

Get it here.

Errm.. that's great Mr. Boy, but how about a version for x-desktops?? How about punishing the Trek-Doctor to do it?

Yes, I know, how about banning me..

Uuuhh, did I say good job already? :P

Er..I'm not sure how to respond to that.

Have a random quote instead:

I like the websites screensaver. Its basic but it has that awesome theme song that reminds me of day of the tentacle but with a psychic twist.

I like the song, but I hate screensavers with sound.

Hee, nice screensaver Benzo. The official one is a little repetitive, and seems more like an excuse just to show off some music from the game. Maybe.

And Ray, try posting something constructive for once. It won't kill you, I swear.

Its funny to me to hear how different the Psychonauts theme in that screensaver is from the music in the old 2002 trailer, but it's nice how you can hear many similar themes in both recordings...

Also did anyone else notice that the music in the screensaver is the same song from the current trailer (its the music that people were referring to as "probably placeholder" ... clearly not placeholder! but sounds better to me with the clarinet solo, and being able to hear the whole thing and all the themes it contains)

... also its nice that you can listen to the tune without installing if you wish.

And I thought i said exactly the same, with the difference that simply waiting for the bloody game to come out I didn't care about any Psychonaut-screensavers, so I cutted the rest of the oh-so-constructive part. The other difference is, I said it, not you.

But you are right, as usual, though.

It's pretty good as screensavers go and considering my usualy screensaver is a slideshow of all of my pictures, I think I'll be sticking with yours as it's the same, but with funky music and resized pics. The official one was a bit dissapointing, but then, what can you really expect?

The less effort in the screensaver, the more in the game?

This close to release, I'm guessing they just slapped something together to keep us quiet for a while.

Not that it really matters but my screensaver is nothing like the official one. The official has no images and has sound. Mine has images and no sound.

Great idea, benny. I wonder if this screensaver has easter eggs like your other screensaver had?

Hee I forgot about those, I should have put some in. Perhaps with the super-cookchase midi blaring out at full volume.
