Fool's Errand Sequel Update; New April Fool's Treasure Hunt
8:03 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Puzzle-meister, game designer, and all-around wacky guy Cliff Johnson has released the second issue of The Fool's Gold, a monthly newsletter charting the progress of his upcoming sequel to one of the most original puzzle games ever to grace our platform: The Fool's Errand.

Entitled The Fool And His Money, the new version will continue the story of the wandering fool as he travels through the countryside, trying desperately to rid himself of a deck of magic (or... cursed?) tarot cards. The new puzzles will continue along the style set by the original game over fifteen years ago, promising to be just as diabolical as they were the first time around. The sequel, expected to be released Halloween Night on both the Mac and PC platforms, can be pre-ordered for $25 US from the game's website.

Also in the newsletter, Cliff has announced The First Annual April Fool's Day Treasure Hunt Errand. Starting on the Ides of March (that's March 15th for the rest of us), Cliff will be dropping clues to the treasure hunt on his website. The contest, which ends on April Fool's Day, has a grand reward: free Cliff Johnson games for the rest of his (Cliff's) life.

Stay tuned to IMG for more info on this long-awaited sequel. In the meantime, click on the links below for access to The Fool's Gold website, or for free downloads of three of Cliff Johnson's previous games.

Careful, however; the latest beta of Safari seems to have some difficulties in displaying the site.
