Double Fine boss Tim Schafer and Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson have entered into discussions about the possibility of working on a Psychonauts sequel.

Following an offer made on Twitter by Persson to help fund the game, it appears the two parties have now entered into some kind of discussion.

"Tim and Markus are talking," a Double Fine spokesperson told Eurogamer. "Who knows what might happen?"

Psychonauts launched in 2005 to critical acclaim, but commercial success didn't follow. Schafer has said that attempts to fund a sequel have thus far been unsuccessful.

What we all hope will happen is the two form a wonderful partnership and create Psychonauts 2, but that outcome is quite a way off at this time.
