Psychonauts 2 May Finally Get Funding... From the Creator of Minecraft

Maximum PC Staff

In videogames, anything can happen. And outside them, well, apparently the same rule applies. It all started when Tim Schafer lamented that he's “actually pitched [Psychonauts 2] to publishers several times and no-one has taken the bait so far." Sounds like the end of the line for the brain-bending, mind-invading cult hit, right? Not if Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson has anything to say about it.

And things to say about it he does... have. Like these ones, for instance:

"Let's make Psychonauts 2 happen,” he tweeted at Schafer . "I'm serious.”

Meanwhile, in a statement to Eurogamer , Double Fine gave its official (and extremely encouraging) response: "Tim and Markus are talking. Who knows what might happen?" So both parties are interested, and talks are under way. We, meanwhile, are prepared to buy every copy of the game ever printed and live in a house made of Psychonauts 2. We feel like that's how Notch -- looking down from atop his block-by-block empire -- would want it.
