Psychonauts 2 Interview

Tim Schafer continues his interview tour by chatting with Kotaku about Double Fine's successful kickstarter campaign and the possibility that Minecraft's Notch would fund Psychonauts 2, something that's apparently resulted in some ongoing negotiations. He says that while the under two million dollars their Kickstarter campaign has raised would not fund a Psychonauts sequel, Notch did not flinch at the amount Tim thinks it would require:

"I was like, 'I don't think you can make [it] for a million dollars.' The original game was, I think, $13 million, I think you have to match the original game."

"As soon as I mentioned the amount of money he said, 'Yeah, I can do that.'"

I do know about Magic, yes. Not going to lie; given how often you've mentioned the saturated card game market, I really thought there was going to be more than one example. This is a reasonable list:

By way of comparison, Tower Defense:

...minus about 3,249 browser-based games, probably the single most saturated browser game genre in existence, unless it's zombies.

For whatever reason, I think you're kind of imbalanced about 1) how many card games there really are on the PC, and 2) how much it probably costs Notch to fund one.

Regarding losing money on Schafer, I was referring more to your suggestion that Notch would be better off putting $13M towards Psychonauts 2 than making his card game and other projects. I love his games, but the historical evidence is not on his side. He's like a one man Looking Glass Studios, unfortunately.
