Landmark action game Flashback is getting a sequel 30 years later

Flashback, the cult 1992 platformer from storied French studio Delphine Software application International, is getting a follow up thirty years later on. On Tuesday, publisher Microids revealed through Twitter that Flashback 2 remains in production and set to show up in 2022 on consoles and PC.

More info is little, however what’s curious is that Flashback currently has a follow up: the 1995 PC/PlayStation video game Fade to Black, in addition to a 2013 remake from VectorCell, a now-defunct studio directed by Paul Cuisset, director of the initial Flashback.

Both follow-ups lacked what made the very first Flashback such a striking video game: the novelty of its rotoscoped animation, that made lead character Conrad Hart relocation with a realism similar to Prince of Persia or Another World. Integrate that with an uncommon concentrate on story for an action-platformer, and Flashback has all the markers of a cult hit, one that is extremely simple to play, as a remaster is offered on many platforms.

As its existing follows up have actually revealed, it’s tough to follow-up Flashback in a contemporary design that doesn’t simply seem like a generic action video game — rotoscoping actually went a long method the early ‘90s. Possibly Flashback 2 will amaze all of us.
