Psychonauts Sequel Pitch Gets No Takers, So Notch Steps Up On Twitter

You all remember the time that Tim Schafer mentioned in an interview that he'd pitched and been turned down by publishers for a sequel to Psychonauts, right? And how Markus "Notch" Persson, Minecraft creator and Mojang big boss, read that and then offered on Twitter to make the sequel a reality? You should, because all of this happened last week. Another thing happened last week as well: DICE. Schafer was there. And Kotaku chatted with him.

The short version is: Schafer and Persson and currently discussing the possibility of a Psychonauts sequel in private. Schafer says that in his first conversation about the sequel, he told Notch that the first game cost $13 million and the sequel would have to match it. "As soon as I mentioned the amount of money, [Notch] said, 'Yeah, I can do that,'" Schafer revealed. 

He wouldn't say much about the sequel beyond the fact that he's always had a bigger arc planned for the first game's characters, and that the next adventure would have "a more international setting." Let's maintain some perspective here though: PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT PSYCHONAUTS 2!!!
