Psychonauts 2 – A Notch in shining armour

Let me start by saying this: Tim Schafer is a legend and if you don’t know who he is, get your ass onto the internet and JFGI! This man is responsible for legendary titles such as Monkey Island, Grim Fandango and the cult hit Psychonauts.

If anyone has not had the pleasure of taking the kooky quest into the inhuman psyche that is Psychonauts, I thoroughly recommend that you give it whirl. It’s only $9.99 on Steam. Value for money? I think so! But I need to pull myself away from the awesome that is Tim Schafer and grab onto the awesome that is Notch. As most people with half an eye open in this industry would know, Notch is the man who brought the world Minecraft. As Minecraft is a huge success and brought the man a hearty income, Notch seems to have plenty of cash to fling around.

In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Tim Schafer said “ I’ve actually pitched that to publishers several times and no-one has taken the bait so far. I’d love to do that game, but I’d have to convince someone to just give me a few million dollars, that’s all.”ay from the awesome that is Tim Schafer and grab onto the awesome that is Notch. As most people with half an eye open in this industry would know, Notch is the man who brought the world Minecraft. As Minecraft is a huge success and brought the man a hearty income, Notch seems to have plenty of cash to fling around.

Well someone took notice, and in a surprise twist in the twitterverse, Notch responded to Tim’s plea.

“How many millions exactly?”

Followed by: “Let’s make Psychonauts 2 happen.”

@TimOfLegend is yet to respond on twitter, but word on the eStreet is that the two giants of gaming are in talks – according to reps at Double Fine Studios (Schafer’s illustrious gaming house)

How exciting!? It’s amazing what millions of monies can do for your dreams. I, personally, can’t wait for the Psychonauts sequel.
