Psychonauts and Blinx Sweep Originality Categ

Microsoft Game Studios is pleased to announce that "Psychonauts" was named "Best Original Game" of E3 2002 in this year’s Game Critics Awards. The runner-up in the same category went to another new star in the Microsoft line-up: "Blinx: The Time Sweeper." “Everyone at Double Fine is incredibly excited about winning this award, first because it’s a great honor, and secondly, it means that the Game Critics have finally forgiven us for that time we broke into their clubhouse and stole their mascot goat,” said Tim Schafer, game designer and CEO of Double Fine Productions. "We’re very proud of the richly imaginative world that Tim Schafer and Double Fine Productions have created in Psychonauts," said Ed Fries, vice president of Xbox game content at Microsoft. "Creating games like this keeps these guys off the streets." “Psychonauts” is a wildly surreal action-adventure game in which players use paranormal powers to plunge into the minds of bizarre characters. Players journey deep into crazy worlds of infinite possibility to thwart the secret plan of an evil madman and realize the ultimate dream of joining an elite force of psychic superheroes, the Psychonauts. "Blinx: The Time Sweeper" is the world’s first "4-D" platformer, where players control the flow of time in more than 35 fantastically twisted worlds - just like using a VCR remote on the real world. Using the hard drive to digitally record players’ every move, gameplay can be paused, slowed, rewound, recorded and played back, providing a totally new gaming experience only possible on Xbox. The Game Critics Awards: Best of E3 2002 (http://www.e3awards.com) is an independent committee comprising the judges from leading print and online publications, as well as mainstream media. It is in no way associated with the IDSA or E3 Expo management.
