Emily Is Away Too is the sequel to the popular text-based indie game Emily Is Away. The new game features a new, longer storyline and includes many new gameplay mechanics and references to be discovered that make the game incredibly fun to play.

The game is the spiritual successor to the original title, meaning that the game's storyline doesn't pick up where the original left off. The game starts in the summer of 2005 and ends in the summer of 2007.
