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.

Unfortunately because of this, I am now forced to buy Minecraft, just to show Markus Persson how awesome his offer is...

I know that Notch does such things because he loves games, but it would also seem that he knows how to do great PR better than anyone who does it "professional".

Him and Valve should open a PR school.

I don't think he's the anti-christ... but he has is moments.

As for this offer... that's cool I guess... but I wonder how Tim is taking it.
