A Draugen Sequel May Already be in Development

Published

Draugen

Draugen releases officially tomorrow, but the development team seems to already be working on a sequel.

The end of the closing credits of the game contains a brief message (pictured below) that “Edward and Alice will return.” Further details are not forthcoming, and the game itself offers few hints as to the direction a prospective sequel might take.

Such a project might not even happen, as similar teases in other games (such as Dante’s Inferno) have amounted to nothing. The prospects will no doubt depend on the commercial performance of the Draugen, although Red Thread Games might also expand the story in another media format.

In any case, the message seems at odds with the revelation earlier this month that the team is already working on a cartoony post-eco-collapse road trip game called Dustborn, for which it recently received a NOK2,000,000kr grant from the Norwegian Film Institute.

OnlySP’s review of Draugen scored the game as a Distinction, saying that “it shows what mastery of the ‘walking simulator’ format looks like.”

Tim Schafer: No Plans for Brutal Legend 2, but ‘Never Say Never’

Published

Brutal Legend

Double Fine’s heavy-metal mashup, Brutal Legend, has gone some time without a proper sequel and Double Fine head Tim Schafer thinks there is still some waiting to do.

During a press Q&A session at E3 2019, Schafer was asked about the possibility of a sequel to the Jack Black-starring action-adventure game. Though Schafer says Double Fine would like to move on to something new first, a sequel may certainly still happen.

“That’s a fun universe, too, that I’d love to back to, but now we’ve been in sequel mode for a few years and it’d be nice to do something new…but never say never.”

Schafer commented on the possibility of a Brutal Legend 2 two years back, stating that fans will eventually see a sequel. During that same report, Schafer teased that Brutal Legend 2 would be an expensive game to make.

This most recent update at least reaffirms Schafer’s fondness for the series, even if the Double Fine team wants a break from sequels.

Brutal Legend released to generally strong reviews, with many praising its comedy and unique world.
