Psychonauts was inspired by Super Mario 64, says Schafer

"Ed Fries was pushing games as art. But we always imagined, you know, being inspired by Super Mario 64, that Psychonauts would be a console-style game. It always would have been that." - Tim Schafer

You can definitely feel the influence in Psychonauts, specifically in the mechanics. Too bad the title never saw the same success that Mario did.
