Dead Age 2 Receives A New Video Looking At Its Evolution

Headup Games has started to release a new set of videos promoting the release of Dead Age 2, starting with a look at its evolution. The game has been in development with the team at Silent Dreams for three and a half years, and during that time they took a second look at the first game and chose ways to improve on it. This video, while short, explores how they went about doing that to keep the game at its roots while also expanding on what it was. You can check it out below as the game will be released on June 3rd, 2020 on PC via Steam.
