Double Fine head Tim Schafer has spoke in the past that he would love to make a Psychonauts 2, and its just that the studio didn’t have the money. So Markus Persson, the creator of Minecraft, logged onto his twitter under the name “Notch” and posted to Schafer “Lets make Psychonauts 2 happen.” He then followed with a later tweet indicating he was serious about this.
Schafer responded saying that this could be a possibility noting he had found funding on twitter before. Steven Dengler later suggested he would help fund a Psychonauts 2, and the trio have since moved their discussions offline.
Psychonauts, whilst not a dominant release, became a cult game, earning the favor of critics and gamers alike; one notable fan is Ben “Yahtzee” Crowshaw, who created Zero Punctuation for the Escapist and is synonymous with hating most games. Would you like to see a Psychonauts 2? Feel free to discuss below.
