Updated Psychonauts on Steam

Did everyone already see this? There's been a major update to Psychonauts on Steam. According to the Double Fine forums, there's now:

- Steam Achievements
- Steam Cloud saves
- XBox 360 Controller Support
- The Meat Circus has been made more "fair"

Some are claiming the graphics have been improved, too.

Anyone picked it up, yet? It's a great time to be a fan of these games -- what with the MI:SE coming along recently, and the new Ben There, Dan That SE, too!

Nice. The meat circus was a bit insane and I think it did need tweaking.

Where does it say anything about graphic improvements?

Quite a nice surprise. I remember they added large resolution widescreen support in the old patches but the cutscenes ended up being all stretched sideways — anyone know if that's been fixed?

It's also now SteamPlay, so the Mac version is available as well at no extra cost if you own the game.

If anyone re-bought it recently from GOG.com (like me) then there's an unofficial patch here to update it in line with the steam version.

That thread also mentions forthcoming user patches for fmv widescreen fix, so its worth keeping an eye on.

That's pretty nifty. I hope DF keep up with their Steam version.

Double Fine also just unleashed an app on the iOS app store that contains all the memory vaults from the game, plus brand new commentaries on each vault all free!

I didn't even realise Psychonauts had just been released for the Mac, but I'm guessing that's where this sudden flurry of stuff has come from. A most pleasant surprise.
