Amplitude, the team behind two of our favourite games of last year—Endless Legend and Dungeon of the Endless—announced a new game over the weekend. It’s a sequel to another of their Endless games, Endless Space. Endless Endless Endless. Endless.
I’m excited! The first Endless Space was OK, hinting at some of Amplitude’s future strengths (like slick UI and a killer soundtrack) but in the long run suffering from a dryness; a game devoid of much story, point or joy. The studio has shown with its games since that this is certainly no longer a problem for them, so if Endless Space 2 can keep the same freedom and smart ideas of the original but make the whole thing seem a little more alive, then I’m in.
There’s not much actual info to go on, but if you’re super psyched and need something, there’s a different cut of the trailer on the game’s site that involves a neat trick.
