"It's obvious that a great deal of love has gone into The Inner World," our John said in reviewing the adventure game, "because a great deal of it comes back out again as you play." He really liked it, see. Good news, Johnno!
As there's no better time or place to announce an adventure game than Gamescom, publishers Headup Games today announced a sequel. It's named The Inner World: The Last Wind Monk [official site] and it's due in 2017. For now, a wee teaser trailer:
I like that it includes not one but two jokes with things falling over. Classic.
The Last Wind Monk is a sequel but friendly marketing blurb assures us it's fine if you haven't played that. Though if the original is nice and you're interested in the sequel, wouldn't you go back anyway?
This time, you can switch between all three protagonists. As for what you'll be up to, the announcement tosses out a few happenings: "find the last wind monk, cause trouble in a tumble mouse factory, play with Uncle Oboe for some toilet paper in prison, help a desperate Bingo-Pony become happy once again, bring the adorable baby gorf back home and save Asposia." And fall over, right?
Made by Studio Fizbin, The Inner World: The Last Wind Monk is due on Windows and Mac in 2017. Do check out Wot John Thought of the first one.
