Two new demos for Project: Snowblind and Psychonauts are now available for download at 3D Gamers.

Project: Snowblind, for those who don't know, is a sci-fi FPS that puts you in the shoes of "an elite super-soldier, fighting on the frontlines of a near-future war using unique weapons, abilities and high-tech gadgetry." The PS2 version was pretty good, if a little on the forgiving side.

It was recently released for PC, PS2 and Xbox by Crystal Dynamics, who are also hard at work on Tomb Raider: Legend right now. The demo weighs in at 213MB and features a mission set in an opera house, and you'll find it here.

Next we have Psychonauts, a third-person "psychic odyssey" which features three levels set in the real world and 10 set "inside the worlds of misfits, monsters and madmen." The game is based around the idea that you can enter peoples' minds and raise your ranking by collecting figments of their imagination.

It's coming to us from Double Fine Productions, which was founded in 2000 by Tim Schafer - the former LucasArts man behind Grim Fandango and Full Throttle and other classic point and clickers. The hefty 457MB demo includes the already-seen intro cut-scene as well as a section from early on in the game, where you can explore campgrounds and undergo some basic training. The Psychonauts demo is available here.
