Notch no longer willing to fund Psychonauts 2

At almost a year since we found out he was willing to fund it

Perhaps in some distant future when Iím no longer trying to make games, I could get into angel investing. Iíve made one private investment into a game so far, at $100K, and itís frankly a lot more work than I thought.Ē

Well, darn.


I'm done putting links in my signature because every time I do it just links to some old crap I've long since stopped updating.

Someone start a Kickstarter because seriously I would donate the **** out of that. Like, big time I don't even need any perks can I just have psychonauts 2 in some form? Novel, comic series, webcomic. I don't care just tell me what happens, Schafer.


"A few times in my life I've had moments of absolute clarity. When for a few brief seconds, the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I've lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be."

Saddening news, indeed.

But in my opinion, at least this means they want to do Psychonauts 2 properly, if/when they're going to do it. I wouldn't want some cheap, cop-out version of it. Psychonauts in some form, as DathAve mentioned, would be nice but a second game is still what I really want.
