I was reluctant, not because I had any doubt in Schafer's ability, but simply because I had never been a platforming fan and something like Psychonauts didn't sit high on my priority list. But I couldn't ignore the amazingly high review scores and the insistent persuasiveness of my friend, so I finally sat down to play it. By the time I had finished, it was one of my favorite games ever; it was ceaselessly entertaining, continuously humorous, always inventive and on top of which, it featured several of the best-designed levels I had ever seen. Milkman Conspiracy, Black Velvetopia and Waterloo were all memorable and stand out in my mind to this day. Therefore, when I heard that Schafer was making a video game based on heavy metal, a genre of music I've been partial to for years, I just knew I'd have to pay close attention."
