Indie game developer Kyle Seeley has released the sequel to the popular text-based indie game Emily Is Away. The new game features a new, longer story and many new gameplay mehanics and nostalgic references.
The first title in the franchise received popularity because it featured many references to the internet culture from the early 2000s. In the game players played as a teenager who chats with the chat bot Emerly35 by selecting from a variety of responses to advance the story.
The sequel, Emily Is Away Too, features a new story that is ten times as long as the original. This is in part because Emily Is Away Too has a large number of different endings for the player to reach.
Unlike the first game, the sequel features chat with two seperate characters, Emily and Evelyn, a dialogue-based branching narrative with multiple endings, transmedia storytelling through hyperlinks and file transfers and over 100 nostalgia-inducing buddy icons to choose from.
The sequel was announced back in October of last year and has been in development ever since.
Emily Is Away Too is now available on Steam for $4.99 in North America and €4.99 in Europe.
