The fellows at Zombie Cow, behind the completely fantastic Ben There, Dan That
! , have announced the news that there definitely won’t be a sequel to the adventure game. No sirree. Not a chance. And want to know what should go in it.
“Oooh, Ben There, Dan That!, eh? Ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, didn’t it? I wonder how veritable heroes Dan and Ben get out of that one. Shame there’ll never ever be a sequel, simply because Donationware doesn’t really bring in enough cold, hard cash to make it economically viable.”
So convinced are they that no follow-up will happen that they’re asking for suggestions of what people would want to see in a sequel they’re absolutely not going to make. Things that aren’t planned for the game that doesn’t exist currently include:
“Already on the list:
– Smaller and tighter.
– Better puzzles.
– Marginally nicer graphics.
More jokes about wankingless jokes about wanking.”
Meanwhile, ZC are pimping their older games, with demos for Gibbage and Cruxade appearing over on GamersHell. Gibbage is 2-player 2D cartoon deathmatch, which now only costs a measly £3. It’s cute, retro, and about two people have a fun time at the same keyboard. And splurting blood everywhere and blowing each other’s heads off. Cruxade is the colour-match puzzle every indie developer is apparently required to make. It’s not that bad, and only a tenner.
