By Christian Zibreg on Aug 23, 2016

Ever since completing the game, I’ve been rooting for Oceanhorn’s developers to make a sequel and now, GameMob points us to the official confirmation that it’s indeed being worked on as we speak.

Titled Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm, the game’s mechanics are based on a third-person camera angle versus the original game’s isometric view. The storyline revolves around a new hero—a grown-up boy who is training to become a Knight of Arcadia. Read More
