Notch, the brilliant mind behind Minecraft, tweeted a while back that he would be interesting in funding Tim Schafer’s Double Fine studio in order to make a sequel to the cult classic Psychonauts . Considering the powerful following that game has, it’s only natural that the Internet exploded shortly thereafter. However, Notch wanted to stop this wildfire of rumors before it got out of hands, and thus provided an explanation on his tumblr.
He basically clarified that he has absolutely no idea whether or not this will actually happen. It’s a scenario filled with “ifs.” “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),” Notch said, “I would be most interested in doing this type of investment.”
So there you have it, Minecraft and Psychonauts fans. Notch is trying, but this does not confirm a Psychonauts sequel or Notch’s involvement in such a project.
