On February 14, Tim Schaefer, founder of Double Fine Productions
, mentioned via Kotaku
that Markus "Notch" Persson, creator of Minecraft
, offered, over Twitter
, to fund a Psychonauts
sequel. Now, Notch updated his blog
with the following words: "Being a big fan of the first one, and thinking a sequel could probably be profitable, I semi-jokingly tweeted Tim about me funding a sequel."
But even if the budget for developing Psychonauts 2
is three times higher than his initial impression and Double Fine will be very busy for a while with their Kickstarter project (story
), he would still fund the game. "All I know is that IF the numbers work out and IF they still want to do it and IF they don’t decide to self fund a sequel by doing more crowd funding (which is honestly what I would’ve done if I were them), I would be most interested in doing this type of investment."
