Last year, Her Story proved to be a successful release, using a blend of recorded live action video sequences and making the player come to their own conclusion as to its ending. The game’s creator Sam Barlow has today tweeted an image confirming a follow up is in the works.
Barlow also confirmed in the comments section of the tweet that the story will not relate to the first title, despite the ‘2’ indicating otherwise. Still, that doesn’t mean the game won’t have a different title, but for the sake of the fan base, it might be worth mentioning ‘Her Story’ in the title somewhere, to avoid confusion. You can see the tweet below, with the text deliberately fuzzy to avoid the plot details.
