Minecraft’s Notch Wants to Help Tim Schafer Fund “Psychonauts 2″
UPDATE: Dracogen CEO Steven Dengler, who previously funded a PC version of Costume Quest and a Mac version of Psychonauts, took to Twitter today to express interest in funding a hypothetical Psychonauts 2 project.
Sometimes, the speed of the internet is pretty dizzying. On Friday, February 3rd, Digital Spy published an interview with Psychonauts creator and Double Fine head honcho Tim Schafer, who revealed that Psychonauts 2 had been pitched “several times,” but that no publisher was interested.
Only four days later, Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson hopped on Twitter with a proposal that sent fans of both cult franchises into spasms of joy. “Let’s make Psychonauts 2 happen,” the genial Swede tweeted to Schafer.
It’s a testament to the power of social media that this situation could even arise. Now we’ll have to wait and see if anything comes of Notch’s exciting offer.
