I would love to see another Psychonauts game. I know Schafer has stated more than once that he's still interested in the series, so hopefully this makes that a real possibility.

Here is to hoping it gets made AND sells very well, further rewarding notch for supporting this and Schafer of course.

I've bought both guy's games so I've done my part :). To be honest I haven't bought any other Double Fine games, cause I didn't fall in love with the Brutal Legend demo, and Stacking and Costume Quest did not hold my interest even for the duration of the demo.

Too bad the game I care for the most, is 360 exclusive :( (Trenched or whatever it was renamed to)

Brutal Legend was a completely different game than then demo, so maybe you would like it?

If Double Fine's recent trends are anything to go by, Trenched will end up on PC sooner or later.

If this goes through, Markus Persson wins my Man of the Year award.
