September 29th, 2009 – Tycoon Games, developers of several award-winning dating sim and visual novels, has announced the sequel to one of their most popular games, Heileen.
The game takes place on the mysterious Caribbean island where Heileen was shipwrecked with a few of her friends at the end of the first game. She stumbles upon a deck of tarot cards that represent the seven deadly sins and the seven heavenly virtues. It isn't long before she discovers that these cards have the power to change both her dreams and her reality.
"The seven deadly sins are a common motif in art, books, comics, movies and songs, but most people seem to forget the seven heavenly virtues. In a world as complex as ours, I felt that it would be wrong to ignore the virtues, as they too are an intricate part of our lives," says Celso Riva, the designer and programmer of the game.
Like Tycoon Games' most recent game, Bionic Heart, the events of Heileen 2 rely heavily on the user's decisions. The final game will feature more than twelve unique endings and an enhanced version of the original quest system in Heileen.

Anyone who reads this blog knows this already, but here's the official press release. A good portion of it is done already, but there's still plenty of work left. Should be fun.
