Lunar Ray Games Announces Sequel to Timespinner
Lunar Ray Games, the developer behind the popular pixel art Metroidvania game Timespinner, has recently revealed that they are working on a sequel titled “Timespinner 2: Unwoven Dream.” The announcement was made on the game’s official website and has left fans eagerly anticipating its release.
New Protagonist and Familiar Gameplay
The sequel takes place after the events of the original Timespinner game and introduces a new protagonist named Auria. Like the previous protagonist Lunais, Auria possesses the ability to wield powerful orbs of magic. Players can expect the same engaging gameplay mechanics that made the first game a hit, including the ability to swap orb load-outs to adapt to different situations.
Avert the Impending Apocalypse
The plot of Timespinner 2 revolves around Auria, a retired war hero, who awakens to the ominous signs of an impending catastrophe known as the Unwoven Dream. When her son runs away to prove himself as the destined hero who can prevent the collapse of reality, Auria embarks on a quest to save him. Along the way, she uncovers the truth behind the prophecies and her role in preventing an irreversible cataclysm.
Explore a Fantastic World
Players will accompany Auria on a grand odyssey through the interconnected realm of Surflynd. From eerie woodlands to the ominous Tower of the Apocalypse, from dark underwater depths to the ethereal Domain of Dreams, the game promises a diverse and visually stunning world to explore. The pixel art, which received high praise in the first game, is expected to be just as brilliant in the sequel.
Release Date and Platforms
While no specific release date has been announced for Timespinner 2, fans are hoping to see it hit the gaming scene sometime next year. The game is confirmed to be coming to Steam and unspecified consoles. Given that the original Timespinner was released on the Nintendo Switch just a year after its initial launch, it is highly likely that the sequel will also be available on the popular handheld console.
Positive Reception and Anticipation
The first Timespinner game received favorable comparisons to classic Castlevania titles, such as Symphony of the Night, Aria of Sorrow, and Order of Ecclesia. Its stunning pixel art, engaging gameplay, and captivating storyline earned it an 8/10 rating. With the announcement of the sequel, fans are excited to see how Lunar Ray Games will build upon the success of the original game.
Timespinner 2: Unwoven Dream is shaping up to be an exciting addition to the Metroidvania genre. With its stunning pixel art, engaging gameplay mechanics, and intriguing storyline, fans of the original game and newcomers alike have something to look forward to. As the release date approaches, gamers will be eagerly anticipating the chance to embark on Auria’s quest to save her son and prevent the impending collapse of reality.
