Tycoon Games (http://www.winterwolves.com), the developer of dating
sim and visual novels, has announced the development of the sequel to
one of their most popular games, Heileen. It’s due for release in
November on Mac, PC and Linux platforms.
The game takes place on the mysterious Caribbean island where Heileen
was shipwrecked with a few of her friends at the end of the first
game. She stumbles upon a deck of tarot cards that represent the
seven deadly sins and the seven heavenly virtues. It isn’t long
before she discovers that these cards have the power to change both
her dreams and her reality.
“The seven deadly sins are a common motif in art, books, comics,
movies and songs, but most people seem to forget the seven heavenly
virtues. In a world as complex as ours, I felt that it would be wrong
to ignore the virtues, as they too are an intricate part of our
lives,” says Celso Riva, the designer and programmer of the game.
Like Tycoon Games’ most recent game, Bionic Heart, the events of
Heileen 2 rely heavily on the user’s decisions. The final game will
feature more than 12 endings and an enhanced version of the original
quest system in Heileen.
