The world's worst-spelling hero is back to save the uniwerse... I mean, the universe once again, as Cateia Games and Steve Ince have announced a partnership to create Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty. But the Kaptain will need a spaceship and some crowdfunding in order to get the sci-fi comic sequel off the ground.
This time around, Ursula Unsula, the "queen of Zennity Sping, the tiniest planet in the known universe," has her sights set on taking over Folderakkiakkiu, the second tiniest planet. And as with all megalomaniacs, "if she succeeds in doing that, who knows where it will end?" Stopping her sounds like a job for anyone but Kaptain Brawe, but alas, the most qualified person is now dead, leaving Brawe to save the day once again. The only problem is that he "currently finds himself stranded on a remote ice planet with little hope of rescue. It wouldn’t be so bad if he hadn’t just burnt the last flammable part of his damaged ship in an effort to keep warm."
A Space Travesty will feature the same stunning 2D hand-painted backgrounds as its predecessor, but the new story will be written by Steve Ince, well known to adventure fans for his work on the Broken Sword and So Blonde series, among others. The sequel promises the same classic point-and-click gameplay of the original, offering around ten hours of gameplay full of "unique 'Brawe' humor and puzzles" and another cast of wacky characters. These characters, fortunately, will be fully voiced, representing a major improvement over the first game.
The game is being designed for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, and Linux, plus iOS and Android devices, with a target completion date of July 2015. In order to finance the voiceovers and other production costs, the developers have turned to Kickstarter for crowdfunding, seeking $150,000 by June 26th. A limited time minimum pledge of $15 for early backers will result in a free download of the game. Those who pledge even $3, however, will get the second episode of the original game, A Brawe New World. The first episode is available throughout the duration of the campaign completely free for PC and Mac from the sequel's official website.
