View Full Version : Risen 2: Dark Waters dev diary surfaces

Despite our tepid review of Teutonic RPG Risen, a lot of people went out and bought it. Which means one thing: sequel time. And sequel time means one thing: dev diary videos. And dev diary videos mean one thing: dodgily dubbed German people talking about their game.

Risen 2: Dark Waters (http://www.pcgamer.com/tag/risen-2-dark-waters/) eschews land-based RPGing in favour of going fully into pirate land. A YARRRPG, if you will. Here developers Piranha Bytes ‚?? whose studios appear to be in a garden centre ‚?? talk about the design of the game, and how they‚??ve made the jungles look especially jungley.

The most pleasing thing about Risen 2 is that it reminds me a little of Monkey Island, which gets namechecked in the video. But then I remembered that Pirates of the Caribbean reminded me of Monkey Island, and I‚??d rather get scurvy than have to watch that again.
