Notch Offers to Fund Psychonauts 2

Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson has offered to fund development of Psychonauts 2. In response to an interview on Digital Spy where Double Fine's Tim Schafer explains that though he receives daily requests from gamers for a sequel, such a project has been turned down after repeated pitches for publishers, Notch tweeted a question about funding and followed with: "@TimOfLegend Let's make Psychonauts 2 happen." He also tweets to RPS that he saw this through their tweet, and that he's "serious," though his most recent comment notes this ball is still in Tim's court: "Let's wait for Tim to respond. ;) It's his baby." As of this writing, Minecraft has sold nearly 4.9 million copies, putting Notch in the position to make such an overture. Thanks Morris.

So, no one really liked the game-play of Psychonauts or Brutal Legend. But those of us who played them anyway have fond memories of the art direction and storyline. Maybe Tim Schafer should just become a film director.

I disliked the art direction of Psychonauts. I found most of the characters brutally ugly in an unappealing way. A distracting way.

I also hate 3D platforming.


Tried starting the game twice, and while I dug the concept and plot I found myself thinking about other things I needed to get done while walking around and trying to find a way to collect crap. I'm sure that, had I played longer, I would have gotten the hang of the controls, but I never felt in control of my jumping/swinging and found running around in the world uncompelling (I'm making up words!)

I wanted to love it but couldn't. I'll probably give it another shot sometime.
