Psychonauts 2: Tim Schafer is 'ready to do it'

Double Fine founder is ready to return to the fan favourite

Tim Schafer, founder of Double Fine and creator of Monkey Island, Full Throttle and Brutal Legend, has said he's "ready" to do a sequel to Psychonauts.

In an interview in the latest issue of PSM3, Schafer was asked about the possibility of a sequel to Psychonauts for PSN.


He replied by saying he was ready and willing, but that it was a question of finding a publisher that was interested.

"I'm ready to do it. I'd love to do it. It's really a question of getting a publisher who's interested in doing it."

Although the game had a passionate cult following around its release, the popularity of Psychonauts rose recently thanks to word of mouth, Steam sales and even piracy.

"Over the years it's gotten into the hands of a lot of people, through being two dollars on Steam for a while, and being pirated.

"So it's gotten out there. So if all these people were going to buy the sequel it would be a big hit," added Schafer.

Fellow Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert joined Schafer's studio last month, and revealed they are working on a brand new project.
