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.
