There are two great sequel naming conventions. There’s the 2 Fast 2 Furious sequel naming convention that I love and desire that more developers use in their titles. But then there’s the classic Die Hard 2: Die Harder sequel naming convention that’s still a gem. That’s what Lowlander is going with, with the sequel Lowlander II: Lowerlander, a name I can truly appreciate. Oh, and developer Flat Black is looking for beta testers for this even lower sequel.
The original Lowlander ($1.99) was a retro RPG that paid significant homage to Ultima II, and our Shaun Musgrave was a big fan. Lowlander II: Lowerlander promises more one-handed retro RPG action, with a longer main story, some more colorful visuals, cloud saves, and moving water. It’s not promising to be more than what it is, which is a game that Richard Garriott might’ve made three decades ago or so, but that can still produce some fun results. If you want to help beta test this and bring it to fruition, check the forum thread for info on how to sign up.
