Indie games development company, Arrogant Pixel, has announced a new trailer for The Tale of Doris and the Dragon – Episode 2. The game will be released in Summer 2017 and is currently seeking votes on Steam Greenlight – Link available here. I personally recommend voting for this game. The Tale of Doris and the Dragon – Episode 1 was an utter joy for me and it needs to be experienced by more, and more people.
Following on from the breakout Newgrounds title and Winner of the Pocket Gamer Bronze award, the adventure continues in The Tale of Doris and the Dragon Episode – 2. Our brave heroine, Doris, continues on her quest through the Afterlife to find her missing husband Albert. With unique gameplay perfectly adapted to both PC and mobile devices, The Tale of Doris and The Dragon provides a refreshing experience for casual and hardcore gamers alike!
Available on Steam (PC, Mac and Linux), iOS and Android devices worldwide this summer, fans can get a taste of what to expect from the second episode by watching the trailer below.
The new trailer reveals brand new characters and new scenes to explore in this pixel-art world. The retro feel is reminiscent of those unforgettable 90s LucasArts classics. With a quirky narrative and minimalist interface, the point and click style of game makes it easy for players to explore the world that Doris finds herself in.
The first installment in the trilogy was critically acclaimed by reviewers and players alike receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews and comments from all over the world. The BETA version, released on Newgrounds in 2015 received over 100,000 plays. After a long wait, fans will be able to continue their adventures with Doris and Norb the dragon in the mysterious, land of the dead. Ben Simpson, Founder and Lead Designer, said:
“Doris’ adventure is one that is very close to my heart. The entire process of creating the game, including founding the company and working with my closest friends is a dream come true. The release of episode 2 represents a huge professional and personal milestone for me and the team.”
Episode 2 features artwork by the incredible digital artist, Safiyyah Khan, better known as DarkLitria. Music and sound design has been important throughout the process in every game created at Arrogant Pixel. The Tale of Doris and the Dragon is no exception, with a haunting soundtrack by AssadB. The sound design, voice over and foley was created by Ryan Callard. This game also features the vocal talents of Jamie Wood and Daryl Kellie. Jay Shin, Designer and Producer said:
