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, will release worldwide on digital storefronts for Windows PC on August 25, 2015, with Mac and Linux versions to follow soon after. Players who pre-order Evoland 2 through the official website at www.evoland2.com will receive a special 10% off discount as well as a digital art book.
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. Players can expect exciting beat-’em-up battles, captivating puzzles, pixel-perfect platforming, a tense shoot-’em-up segment, and much, much more.
“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?
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.
