Russian indie developer Creepy Brothers released their spooky puzzle adventure Creepy Tale 2 on Steam for PC. This release is the next entry in the series and a sequel to the graphic adventure Creepy Tale. Released in early 2020, the first entry has received over a 1000 reviews on Steam and currently holds an 87% overall very positive review status.
The point-and-click horror takes place in an unnamed kingdom. Both humans and supernatural beings coexist peacefully here. However, now an unknown evil force has started bewitching young girls and turning them into servants. Even the princess of the kingdom has suffered the same fate.
In this sequel players will see how this mystery has affected the lives of the the young kid Lars and his family. Lars’ father was attacked by this evil entity. His sister, Ellie, was bewitched and taken. Now Lars feels that his hand has been forced and must venture into the unknown. Seeking to unveil the truth behind all the dark magic, Lars is stepping to what must be done in order to rescue his own little sister.
Inspired by the old, dark Central European fairy tales many have heard in their childhood, the sequel features a decadent cartoonish art style similar to that of games like Knock-knock! and Don’t Starve. Gameplay is narrative-focused and accessible for players of any kind. Puzzles are both clever and original in design that will help lead Lars to his sister and the creature behind her kidnapping. Fully voiced in English, the game is also localized in Russian.
