Further to yesterday's news item regarding the upcoming release of his new metapuzzle, independent game developer Cliff Johnson has contacted the IMG News Staff with further news regarding his current project, the long-awaited sequel The Fool And His Money.
According to Cliff, the current projected completion date for the new title has been pushed till December of this year; December 6th, to be exact, judging by the completion countdown clock on his web page.
The Fool And His Money picks up where the 1987 "metapuzzle" computer game The Fool's Errand left off. Players must lead the game's protagonist through the over forty hours of puzzles, word games, riddles, and numerous other brain teasers that make up the game. The sequel will feature gameplay similar in style to the original title, but will showcase more elaborate puzzles and a deeper and richer environment than fans of the original game are used to.
Despite the game's numerous delays, the game developer's rabid fan base are standing behind the solo programmer, and are offering unconditional support to his latest effort. In his email to IMG, Cliff writes:
What has been and continues to be both thrilling and heartwarming is the tremendous outpouring of love and affection for The Fool's Errand (and 3 in Three) from True Believers all over the world, confirming what I've always suspected... that folks from all walks of life enjoy the game. To borrow the retired Mac slogan, "a game for the rest of us."With the completion of the game right around the corner, players wanting to get their hands on the new, Mac/PC hybrid puzzle game, should head over to Cliff's website, where pre-orders for the new title are available for $39.99 USD. While there, gamers interested in checking out Cliff's previous Macintosh titles can download The Fool's Errand, At The Carnival and 3 In Three for free from his website. The Classic-friendly titles are available through the links below.
Keep checking in with IMG over the next few weeks as we'll be bringing you further news on this long-awaited title as it approaches completion.
