Default Psychonauts 2

Well, Tim Schafer has been saying for a long time now that he'd want to do Psychonauts 2, but there have always been funding problems. However, now Markus "Notch" Persson, who became a millionaire through Minecraft, said that he wants to fund the game (and is serious about it).

Here's an article about it:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...-psychonauts-2

So, perhaps it is possible? Psychonauts definitely deserves a sequel, and has recently been getting some new publicity (for example with new releases on PC etc.), so this boosts the chances too.

I'm pretty psyched up about this!

Enjoyed the game but never finished it because one level was simply too hard for me. Can't remember where I got stuck but I do remember having fun playing it.

Cool to see Psychonauts 2 might happen. Not cool to see the Douchebag Notch stick his dick into everything.

I will literally freak out if this happens. Psychonauts is one of my favorite games of all time.

He may not be Uwe Boll, but I hate his loud mouth disgraceful ranting on other games that don't make sense. Sort of like a Hipster Douchebag.

The impression I get is he'd just be helping get the game funded. This is pretty damn promising news. I'm trying hard not to get carried away yet. Here's hoping all goes to plan and we get an awesome sequel.

Who in the right mind believes that people that fund a project don't have a say in it?

I totally wouldn't read too much into a tweet, and I honestly wouldn't have expected it to blow up in gaming media like this (notch neither, probably). It's twitter.

That's true, man. Though for something as obscure as Psychonauts makes me think he might just be a fan who happens to be in a position where he can do something about getting a sequel. (The dream of Gabriel Knight fanboys everywhere... ) All just speculation, but I'm hoping for the best...

Maybe if it was Activision or especially EA funding them... but I'm sure Notch will just be like "Ok Tim here's your money. Do your thing." And maybe "you better not make it suck."

Notch, the egomaniac would act like that?

Exactly, so why all this fuss? And leave the fatso be, man. Badmouth him when he deserves it, not when he is interested in helping Double Fine.

I do remember: Meat Circus. Steep ramp in difficulty. I loved the game nevertheless.

What's with all the hate for notch? Honest question, I have no idea what the guy did (or said) besides making that blocky crafty java thing.

^ Yeah, please educate us on this alleged dickishness since you're at it.

You know what I meant, smart ass. You know, love and hate are only one step away; you even quoted Mono.
