Freedom Planet which started out as a Sonic the Hedgehog fan game is getting a sequel according to its developer.
“Freedom Planet 2 is all about advancing and evolving our style into something truly distinguishable,” says developer GalaxyTrail.
The original Freedom Planet was modeled as a tribute to Sega Genesis platform games. We’ve learned what works and what doesn’t, what’s fun and what’s frustrating, what we should expand on and what we can afford to lose. With all of this in mind, we feel that we are ready to bid farewell to nostalgia and create a sequel that will define Freedom Planet’s identity as a franchise.
Freedom Planet 2 is expected to release in 2017. A beta version is also planned for release by mid-2017. The game will be released on PC, Mac, Linux and Nintendo and more platforms potentially later on.
The original game Freedom Planet which came out on PC and Wii U was the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign.
