Today in Non-News: Psychonauts 2


?Markus Persson, creator of Minecraft, is a fan of Tim Schafer’s Psychonauts game, like a lot of people. Unlike a lot of people, Markus Persson has a shit-ton of money. So when Persson tweeted two messages to Schafer…

? “Let’s make Psychonauts 2 happen.”
? “I’m serious.”

…it seemed worth mentioning. Like yesterday, this is simply people talking about doing cool things in anticipation of hopefully doing them, but I know enough folks who have told me how unbelievably brilliant Psychonauts is that even the mere possibility of a Psychonauts 2 should send them in paroxysms of joy. Besides, I would very much like to see a trend of rich people funding sequels to awesome games that didn’t sell very well (*cough* Shenmue III *cough*). Thanks to SlyDante for the tip. (Via GameSpot)
