Sometime last month, the Adventure Lantern posted another very positive review of Spooks. Erin should be proud of the great world that she conceived, wrote, and drew.
Ever since releasing the game, people have been demanding a sequel. I personally wanted to see something completely new and original from Erin, and it seems like she’s found a way to make everbody happy. In a Critics Lounge thread over on the AGS boards, Erin announced a Spooks sequel and showed the first concepts for the new high(er)-res Mortia. However, she also announced that Mortia will not be the main character of the new game. So it appears that Erin may be taking the story in unexpected directions, giving me the original experience I was hoping for!
The thread with the announcement and character concept can be found here, but it should be considered a spoiler for those who haven’t finished Spooks!
I won’t be taking up the programming duties for her next game because I’m too busy with other projects, but I did offer to help her learn to code it herself. Whether she finds someone else to program or dives in and learns to code, I’m just hoping that it doesn’t take too long. I’m anxiously awaiting whatever she comes up with!
I’ll see if I can’t get her to give some exclusive info here on xiigames.com.
