Double Fine and 2 Player Productions have officially announced a kickstarter for a new adventure game and documentary. This announcement comes hours after Tim Schafer took to Twitter to say “on the topic of using non-traditional game funding to fulfill fan requests, we WILL be making an announcement later today!” This announcement also came via Twitter.

Tim Schafer (that’s me) will give last four remaining Triangle Boxed Day of the Tentacles, in original shrink-wrap.” (Limit of 1) (Holy crap, what am I thinking? I only have four of those!)
Previously Schaffer was in talks with Minecraft creator Notch about the possibility of Notch funding the development of a sequel to Psychonauts. Talks are underway over the development of a Psychonauts sequel and it remains to be seen how this latest announcement will affect those talks.
