Well, you never know, it might just happen.

Emphasis on might.

I'm not discounting it as a possibility. But there's a world of difference between possibility and production.

I for one hope he can get enough 'wheels' going to make this, remember the last game wasn't exactly a commercial success.

Just who owns the rights to Psychonauts anyways?

That's why I was curious - did Double Fine keep that IP or did Microsoft or Majesco hang onto them? It gets very tricky if the latter is true.

This is, of course, why there's no Grim Fandango sequels on the horizon. Telltalle took years to get Lucas Arts to give them the rights to a Monkey Island series - and now Lucas Arts is clamping down on rights again. So Tim Schafer is SOL on anything he made with Lucas Arts.

Still, there's no reason not to have a little hopeful speculation.

Grim Fandango came out when I was finishing up my college days, I saw it at the store(wished I bought it though!). I ended up not playing it till around the time adventure games were somewhat coming back(before telltale brought back the point and click genre). I was dissapointed by the ending though, the title of Fandango made me think of future titles. All do respect, film noirish style like this hasnt been executed right as good as this. So perhaps a prequel root for the fandango?

Now that I think of it...Wasnt Tim considering doing a Brutal legend sequel?

Not just considering - it was already in production until EA cancelled it out of the blue. Hence why Double Fine suddenly switched to doing a series of downloadable titles, the first of which is Costume Quest.

Sad, but true.

As Rebochan said, I wouldn't hold my breath.

But it would certainly be a wonderful thing if true.

Once again - I want this to happen, but this isn't even close to an announcement. The game isn't in production, so it's nothing more than a glimmer in Tim Schafer's eye.

I'll do the happy dance when it's actually being made.

Tim Schafer's reaction (for the moment): "Hm. This is interesting."

And the guy who funded Costume Quest and Psychonauts for PC and Mac respectively chimes in:

@notch @timoflegend Let's move this discussion offline...

If this ends up boiling down to nothing, it would qualify as the most evil fan-tease ever.

I'm not going to do the happy dance YET. But I am going to prep an MP 3 of "Celebration" and take dance lessons. Just in case they're needed.

Ah, so Notch did one of things I dream of doing if I would ever win in lottery.

Yes, if I would win in lottery, I would donate money for free to get sequels to games I like/people like a lot tongue I think money corrupts so it would be good to get rid of it...

Notch's tweets on the subject are very promising. Though he's also saying not to expect anything yet, as it's all still very vague.

Going through his twitter, I'm also seeing some other interesting things. Like links to games I didn't know existed, or a reminder that he has a 1-of-a-kind hat in Team Fortress 2.

I have a message from another time...

I'll probably have to buy a copy of Minecraft and give my soul to it for 6 months if Notch actually pulls through. Bummer, outside smells nice.
