LABS Works, a newly formed independent studio started by industry veterans Matt Kap and Simon Parzer, has announced Castle in the Darkness II, an exploration action RPG sequel to the 2015-released Castle in the Darkness (Steam page) by Kap. It will launch for PC via Steam, with more platforms to be announced. A release date was not announced.
“Castle in the Darkness II still features pixel art, but the fidelity has received a major upgrade,” Kap said in a press release. “I’m really pushing my limits. I made the first game with an 8-bit aesthetic to keep it fast and simple because I was working on it mostly alone. But now with Simon taking care of all the technical stuff, along with a few talented specialists, I can focus 100 percent of my effort on producing the best graphics, music and game design that I’m able to. That’s an incredible feeling!”
LAB Works will be publishing mini-trailers for Castle in the Darkness II on the second day of every month that will showcase a specific aspect of the game or its development. You will be able to find them on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
