Chilled Mouse announces Chime 2
Chilled Mouse is delighted to announce that it will be publishing Chime 2, the sequel to the critically acclaimed Chime from Zoë Mode. Chime 2 will be released later in 2015 on Windows, Mac and Linux, and the Chilled Mouse team will be at EGX Rezzed in London showing an early version of the new game. Any fans interested in tracking and involving themselves in the development of the game can sign up for more information at www.chimegame.com.
Ian Baverstock, Director of Chilled Mouse, said “The creation of a sequel to Chime has been something I have wanted to do for a long time. The first game was fantastic but we always felt that there was more that could be done with the idea and now we can make that happen.”
The design for Chime 2 is being led by Ste Curran and the development work is being undertaken by Twistplay. Jonathan Newth of Chilled Mouse said “Chime came out of the Lab Ste led at Zoë Mode and he’s both a fantastic designer and a strong advocate of games in this genre. We are very pleased that Ste will be directing the design of Chime 2”.
“Chime remains one of my favourite projects, but it always felt like unfinished business to me and I’m so pleased to be returning to it,” commented Ste Curran. “We’re halfway through rebuilding the game from scratch and I’m looking forward to working with new artists in a new aesthetic and, hopefully, finding new ways to play too.”
