After joking around about the possibility earlier, Double Fine head Tim Schafer has told Kotaku that a Psychonauts sequel funded by Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson might just come to fruition.
“Could happen!” Schafer told me in an e-mail today. “I have found funding on Twitter before!”
This likely refers to Steven Dengler, CEO of Dracogen, who helped fund versions of Costume Quest for PC and Psychonauts for Mac after talking to Double Fine on Twitter. Dengler also expressed interest in helping fund Psychonauts 2, publicly chatting with both Persson and Schafer today.
