Possible Psychonauts Sequel "Could Happen" with Funding from Notch

PsychonautsWhen it was released on the original Xbox, Psychonauts took the gaming industry by storm. Fun, engaging characters came together in a fun and interesting game that was solid all-around and insanely fun to play. But that was the original Xbox, and that was a long, long time ago. Since then, people have been clamoring for a sequel and, sadly, all hopes of that sequel had seemed squashed, until now. In a recent statement from the original game's creator, a sequel to Psychonauts funded by Notch, the creator of Minecraft, could very well happen.

Tim Schafer, head of Double Fine studios, related to Kotaku that a sequel to the highly popular Xbox game, which focused on a group of students with telekinetic powers, could be put into production with funding for the game coming from Markus "Notch" Persson, creator of the incredibly popular (for some stupid reason) game Minecraft. Schafer responded in an email to Kotaku saying that the game "Could happen!". Schafer also added, "I have found funding on Twitter before!"

That last statement more than likely references CEO of Dracogen Steven Dengler, who provided funds for versions of Costume Quest of the PC and Psychonauts for the Mac after a conversation between himself and Double Fine on Twitter. In addition to that, Dengler expressed a lot of interest in funding the entirely hypothetical sequel to Psychonauts and publicly spoke with both Persson and Schafer today.

Should this deal actually happen, there will be a lot of fanboys out there wetting their pants with excitement. Psychonauts was one of the most popular games on the original Xbox and, I'm sure, still has a following large enough to warrant a sequel. Considering that I missed out on the original game but heard so much about it, I am excited for a possible sequel, if only for the fact that I will be able to experience what all the commotion is about.
