Psychonauts 2 might be about to happen…

Okay, you’re joining us at a kind of exciting time here. Originally this story was about Double Fine CEO Tim Schafer revealing that he and his team want to make a sequel to their Xbox cult classic, Psychonauts, but they can’t get proper funding from a publisher.

Boo hoo, right? Well maybe not; shortly after the story broke Markus ‘Notch’ Persson of Minecraft fame offered to pony up the cash to develop the game.

In a Twitter post made earlier this morning Notch wrote: “@TimOfLegend Let’s make Psychonauts 2 happen.”

In a following message to Rock, Paper, Shotgun, he noted: “Also, I’m serious.”

It might seem a bit far fetched but consider the phenomenal success of Minecraft that has led to drastic growth at developer Mojang and, well, it’s actually quite feasible.

Alright, so we won’t get over excited just yet (Schafer is yet to reply to Notch’s offer), but if it did happen we’d be very, very happy.
