It may not be the sequel that fans have been waiting for, but the indie Czech developers of the acclaimed freeware adventure Five Magical Amulets have just announced a new commercial project in production, Helga Deep in Trouble.
The new game is a sequel, in fact, but to the 2006 short parody game Five Lethal Demons. In this light-hearted comedy, the titular (anti-)heroine returns in her own full-length game. Helga is the "despotic leader" of her own small game development studio, but when she loses her company, she attempts to "start a new studio and convince her former employees to join her again. And it's not going to be easy, considering Helga's reputation."
Helga Deep in Trouble is in developement for both PC and iOS, and though no firm release date has yet been announced, the developers are targeting a release sometime later this year. The game will launch on the App Store for iOS and through the Off Studio website for PC.
In the meantime, Five Magical Amulets is making news of its own, as the game has now been re-released for the iPad, iPhone, and iPad Touch for $3.99 at the App Store. For the full scoop on that game, be sure to check out our review of the PC original.
