Double Fine head Tim Schafer is just as baffled as the rest of us at news that Markus "Notch" Persson wants to fund a Psychonauts sequel.


"I just woke up," Schafer told me when I asked what he thought. "Is something strange going on?"


The legendary designer responsible for games like Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle responded to a barrage of tweets in classic Tim Schafer style.

"Man, so many tweets," he later wrote on Twitter. "I assume this is all people asking for codes to Happy Action Theater and Rise of the Martian Bear?"

"Oh wait," he continued. "Hm. This is interesting."

Clearly this is all just Twitter goofing for now, but we'll keep hounding Schafer for a more serious response.


Update: Double Fine has sent official word to Giant Bomb, telling the gaming website that "Tim and Markus are talking. Who knows what might happen?"
