Ori And The Blind Forest Developer Has An Outline For A Sequel


Ori and the Blind Forest captured my imagination in a big way when I first played it. Sadly I got halted by a game breaking bug, but I am going to make a run at it again this weekend.

As I said though, the title had me enraptured for the first few hours I got to play. That's why I am excited to hear the developer Moon Studios is thinking about doing more with the universe.

Speaking on NeoGAF, the developer's CEO Thomas Mahler confirmed that the game had become profitable within a week, meaning that new installments in the series were possible. In a post he said:

I'd actually be interested in talking about Ori's story – I have somewhat of an outline now of where I'd like to go with the IP in the future, if we'd get to work on another Ori-related project. I think we crafted a big world with memorable characters and there's a lot of potential for us to go in and keep working on that tale.

There was actually quite a lot of lore we created that didn't really make it into Blind Forest. It'd be interesting to take it a step further and open up the world a bit more, to give people further insight into how Nibel works, the characters in it, etc.

All I can say, if the game remains half as good as its opening throughout, sign me up for any sequels. This is a talented studio though, so I'm happy to venture where ever they want to go. Bring on the next project I say!

Thanks to GamesIndustry.bz for the heads up!
