I don’t do many upcoming game release announcements these days. I prefer to have some hands-on with a game before I say much about it. Instead, I usually just add newly announced games to my Upcoming Adventure Games list. But I do make exceptions, and I believe a sequel to one of my favorite point-and-click adventure games is worth getting excited about.
I played and reviewed Studio Fizbin’s and HeadUp Games’ cartoony The Inner World back in 2014 and loved it. So I was thrilled to hear this morning that they’re working on a sequel called The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk. It’s scheduled for release in 2017 on all major platforms, including iOS, Android and PC.
You can watch the short teaser here:
HeadUp Games have also provided some details about the sequel, including the fact that you’ll be able to alternate between three playable characters, including Peck the pigeon! Here are parts of the press release:
The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk takes you back to Asposia on a quest to find the last legendary wind monk. Accompany Robert, Laura and Peck on their journey, encountering many strange characters and saving the family of the flute noses!
For the very first time you can switch between all three main protagonists – including daredevil flight maneuvers with Peck, the maniac Pigeon and everyone’s darling!
And here’s even more details!
The flute nose dynasty has been watching over Asposia for centuries on end. In secret, they fill the roly-poly world with light and life. Emil, a trader for odds and ends, has led all the Asposians astray, making them believe that the dynasty is in cahoots with dark forces. Seriously, who knows what this weird family is doing day in, day out? The only one who could stop evil Emil is the heir to the flute nose throne: Robert. He has been petrified for three years, though. With a huge dose of enthusiasm, but little to no idea what heΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s actually doing, he embarks on an adventure to find the legendary last wind monk. Of course, he has some great company: Peck, as loyal as he is flightless, and Laura, a rebel who certainly does fly, but only off the handle and who is RobertΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s love with a capital L, by the way. A final ray of hope is provided by the mysterious Mama Dola, who seems to know more about RobertΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s destiny than Robert himselfΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼┬¼
