Luca Redwood, creator of 10000000, has announced his latest game: You Must Build a Boat. This sequel will use some of the same mechanics: players will manipulate tiles on a board to help the progress of a running character above, but will feature deeper gameplay elements. Players will be able to upgrade their tiles, capture monsters, and recruit allies for their boat.
Interestingly, the game is a sequel, but Redwood is attempting to make it free for anyone who has purchased 10000000, because he promised a big update to the game that never came. People who own the Steam and Humble versions will get it automatically added to their accounts when released, but the Google Play version will be harder to handle, so there may be some alternate way of getting that free copy if this plan pans out. A feature is also planned for 10000000 owners to import their save data to get bonuses in this game.
There’s no release date for You Must Build a Boat yet as it’s still in development, but it should be playable for press around GDC time when we’ll try to get our grubby mitts on it.
