Johnny Two Shoes Reveals ‘Prevail’ With Mysterious Trailer

If you’re not familiar with Johnny Two Shoes, you really should be. They’re responsible for Plunderland [$2.99], which we thought was absolutely fantastic in our review. It’s a super clever physics-based pirate game that, while being a little old by App Store standards, has aged wonderfully. It’s even universal, which only serves to sweeten the deal further. Anyway, they revealed their next game earlier today. Take a look at the trailer:

Details are vague at this point, but I’ve managed to juice some information out of the looser of the Johnny Two Shoes brothers. Prevail is a game about the small planet where your character lives. It’s on this world where you’ve got a happy, beautiful, and technology-free existence. Well, some jerk aliens (I added the “jerk" part myself, they could be nice, who knows.) abduct you and you begin to slowly realize that there is so much more to the universe than your tiny existence of building and farming. It’s at this point where the game shifts to a more exploration-centric experience where you’re discovering new planets, species, and need to decide what to do with them.

All of these things and more will be revealed in future trailers, along with additional “secret" features of the game. I loved Plunderland, and according to Johnny Two Shoes, “We want to make Plunderland look like sh*t." If they manage to do that, we’re going to have one hell of a game on our hands.
