I came here to post this news but you already beat me to it. I have been putting this story everywhere I can think of. I really hope this happens and we all get a chance to run around in others minds once again.
Next they should make brutal legend 2. Then all my dreams would be true.
One more thing. The best part of this whole story is that this guy seems like just another fan who wants to see a sequel. Now he has the money and wants to make it happen. We have all said or at least thought that if we had the money we would make a game that we never thought would come out.
Notch is going to pony up $13 mil, this game is now def happening, it may end up as a digital release game. If they release part one again as digital it may generate more money and interest for the sequel.
