Psychonauts 2 not being funded by Minecraft creator

Around this time last year, Psychonauts fans had reason to get excited after Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson suggested throwing a few (million) bucks in Double Fine's direction to make a sequel.

Notch 'can do' $13 million for Psychonauts 2

Notch 'can do' $13 million for Psychonauts 2

Sure, Tim Schafer and Double Fine Productions are swimming in a boatload of Kickstarter'd funds for their upcoming adventure game. But, $1.7 million isn't enough to make a new Psychonauts game.
