Indie developer Magical Time Bean has released its puzzle-platformer sequel Escape Goat 2, the first third-party game to be published by Double Fine Productions.
Escape Goat 2, the sequel to the XBLIG and PC puzzle/platformer Escape Goat, has been granted a release on 10th September, developer Ian Stocker has revealed on Twitter.
Indie puzzle/platformer Escape Goat may have begun as an XBLIG game, but it became far more successful once its creator Ian Stocker ported it to PC. As such, its recently announced sequel Escape Goat 2 will be heading to PC first, though other platforms are being considered. It's slated for release sometime in 2013.
For those unfamiliar with Escape Goat, think a 2D Ico - only instead of a boy with horns, you play as a goat. And instead of teaming up with an angelic teenage girl, your companion in captivity is a mouse.
Stocker explained in an interview with Indiestatik that one of the most notable enhancements to this sequel will be the art style as he's hired TigerStyle (Waking Mars, Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor) artist Randy O'Connor to spruce up the visuals.
