UPDATE: The official line from Double Fine is short, appropriately mysterious, and will no doubt leave many speculating for months.
"Tim and Markus are talking," said the company to me in a statement just now. "Who knows what might happen?"
“Let's make Psychonauts 2 happen,” he said.
“I’m serious,” he said in a follow-up.
This all happened hours ago, long before Schafer had even woke up in San Francisco. He awoke to texts asking him to check Twitter.
And then came this one:
“Oh wait,” he said. “Hm. This is interesting.”
This wouldn’t be the first time Double Fine Productions has accepted money from a Twitter backer, with Costume Quest for the PC and Psychonauts for the Mac having been funded by fan and XE.com founder Steven Dengler.
Dengler actually chimed in today, too.
“Let's move this discussion offline,” said Dengler.
So far, Double Fine has not issued an official response, but all eyes will remain on Twitter.
