The designer of Shardlight and Lamplight City will return to Lamplight’s steampunk-ish alternate world in his subsequent journey game, with a rootin’ tootin’ twist. Francisco González of Grundislav Games yesterday introduced Rosewater, a western click on ’em up. Rosewater is ready just a few years after Lamplight and, clearly, is out in some dusty hinterlands quite than a bustling metropolis. González is enjoying his playing cards near his chest at this level, not revealing a lot, however isn’t it sufficient to know he’s adventuring once more?
González describes Rosewater merely as “a Western drama adventure set in the world of Lamplight City.” From that ↑ screenshot, I’d guess we ain’t from ’spherical these components. That’s it.
He does observe on Twitter that he “just started working on it full time in January” so the launch is “probably not for a good while.” He added that it is perhaps “hopefully within the next year and a half.” So by the top of 2020, possibly?
González had labored with famed journey game builders and publishers Wadjet Eye Games, making Shardlight with them, however split in 2016 to go his personal approach from Lamplight onwards. Shardlight was a right good’un.
