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 a graphical style that evolves throughout the game, Evoland 2 is an RPG adventure bursting with charm and character.
“By confirming to our fans when Evoland 2 will release, we hope the excitement and anticipation will garner further awareness of this very special game,”
said Sebastien Vidal, CEO of Shiro Games.
“We are taking every measure to deliver a memorable experience that delivers on the original vision we had set for the original Evoland. This is going to be an epic adventure through the world of videogames and we hope players will join us.”
The story of 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. 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?
Originally created as an entry in the Ludum Dare game jam, before becoming a full commercial project, the original Evoland was released in early 2013 for PC, Mac and mobile devices, and has sold over 500,000 copies to date. Tracing the history of game development from the 8-bit era to the present day, the game’s visual style changes as you progress to mark the various eras of the industry, while the script is peppered liberally with references and in-jokes.
Developer Shiro Games has absorbed critic and user feedback garnered from the original Evoland, claiming that it has expanded its development team significantly in an endeavor to fully realize – and exceed – the original game’s vision.
Evoland 2 is designed to be a standalone experience, and the player’s enjoyment will not be dependent upon playing the first Evoland. Existing fans will appreciate new gameplay styles and elements to warrant experiencing the world in an entirely new way while maintaining the game’s familiar charm.
