Standalone Follow-up to 2013 Indie Hit ‘Evoland’ Hits Digital Storefronts for $19.99
Bordeaux, France – August 25, 2015 – French indie developer Shiro Games today announced that Evoland 2: A Slight Case of Spacetime Continuum Disorder, the time-traveling, genre-spanning standalone follow-up to the 2013 indie hit Evoland, is now available on Steam®, GOG.com, and the Humble Store for $19.99 on Windows PC. In celebration of this announcement, Shiro Games has released a launch trailer for Evoland 2. Mac and Linux versions are expected to follow in the coming months.
A unique RPG adventure on a grand scale, Evoland 2 takes players on a truly epic journey through time and across a variety of classic and contemporary video game styles. Filled with homages, a wide variety of gameplay genres, and an innovative graphical style that evolves throughout the game, Evoland 2 is bursting with charm and character. Players can expect exciting beat-’em-up battles, captivating puzzles, pixel-perfect platforming, a tense shoot-’em-up segment, and much, much more.
“We’ve taken every measure to craft a memorable and fully-featured game with Evoland 2,” said Nicolas Cannasse, creator of Evoland and CTO of Shiro Games. “I’m overjoyed to say that we’ve not only fulfilled our original vision, but expanded on it considerably. We’ve come very far since myself and two others created the original Evoland — we’re a tight-knit team of nine now — and we’re confident that both existing Evoland fans and newcomers alike will be charmed by the labor of love that is Evoland 2.”
The original Evoland released in early 2013 for PC and Mac via Steam as well as on mobile devices, and has sold over 500,000 copies to date. Developer Shiro Games has absorbed critic and user feedback garnered from the original Evoland and has expanded its development team significantly in its endeavor to fully realize – and exceed – the original game’s vision. Evoland 2 is a standalone experience, and the player’s enjoyment will not be dependent upon playing the first Evoland. Existing fans will also appreciate the host of new gameplay styles and elements to warrant experiencing the world in an entirely new way while maintaining the game’s familiar charm.
Evoland 2 revolves around a hero who must protect the strange world he lives in by learning to understand events in different timelines, and in turn attempt to alter a grim future for the better. His adventures are filled with mystery and complexities set by traveling in time. Along the way, he will encounter dozens of unique characters, each with their own backgrounds and signature gameplay styles that are linked to the story and triggered by the player’s actions. With a strange secret buried within the core of this world affecting the course of time itself and powerful forces at play, can he change the world’s destiny or is it already set in stone?
