Braid, the best selling Xbox Live Arcade game of 2008, and highest rated Arcade Game on Metacritic, has given Johnathan Blow great success. Now, gamers are left wanting more. Not necessarily more Braid, but more of the ingenuity that the game has brought to the market.
Nothing is known about this new project other than the fact that it’s an RPG. Johnathan Blow has also mentioned that he wants to make a “Pac-man” clone. Knowing Blow, an abstract, beautiful Pac-Man would probably be awesome, but not as awesome as a 2D-RPG sounds.
Whenever I think “2D-RPG”, I always think of one of the best boss battles of all time in Kirby Super Star. You fight a series of enemies in a giant area made up of turn based battle menus from old RPGS. Maybe you can pick Kirby Super Star up and it’ll tide you over until Blow’s next game!
