Florida in the Roaring Twenties: sunshine, jazz, prohibition, and... real estate agents? Never one to take the obvious path, A Golden Wake is the first commercial title from developer Francisco "Grundislav" Gonzalez, better known for his popular Ben Jordan freeware series.
ClickShake Games’ founder and sole employee Jay Ziebarth, colloquially known by the moniker Zeebarf, clearly feels that sometimes the best way to move forward is to take a few steps back. And so it is that his upcoming second commercial entry in the Ballads of Reemus series, currently seeking funding through Kickstarter, is actually a revisiting of the original free-to-play Several Journeys of Reemus browser games.
Once again, Reemus the exterminator finds his chances of starring in his own heroic ballad quickly going from slim to none. His rivals at Pest-Go have reduced eliminating pests to child’s play for even the most unskilled commoner. Luckily for Reemus and his sidekick Liam the purple bear (though potentially fatal for everyone else), a sudden invasion of killer Death Slugs gives the duo one last chance to prove their mettle and immortalize their names with their own glorious ballad.
If you’re familiar with the previous Reemus outings, fear not: Zeebarf has promised that although the reboot will incorporate the familiar story elements of previous chapters, The Ballads of Reemus 2 will expand on them with all-new puzzles, longer gameplay, and will include features befitting of a standalone commercial release, such as voice acting. Essentially, all five previously released chapters will be rolled into one, improved upon and polished, to tell the complete saga of Reemus and the Death Slugs.
