New Game+ are coming on May 31st

Hello everyone,

In May this year, we are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Twinsen’s Little Big Adventure 2 Classic. This event is truly special for me. In 1997, I was 8 when I discovered the world of Twinsen for the first time. 25 years later, it’s now my (dream) job to bring Twinsen back.

As you may know from Gwen’s last devlog, we are working on updates of the Classic games. Before digging into the details, I must confess there’s one thing we kept secret…

We are bringing a NEW GAME+ mode for both Classic Games!

In this mode, you will experience the full story starting with end-game items like the Sabre, the Protopack and Magic Level 4!

Note that you still need to collect all items to progress through the story as you would in a regular playthrough. Look at these amazing GIFs!

What would you do with the sabre?

Who needs to jump when you've got a protopack?

How about a protection spell?

So how did we end up with that mode?

Since our work on porting the games on Luna with Seb, we were able to really go deep under the hood of the games. During one meeting, Seb told us about a debug mod of TLBA2 Classic that enables you to play the games with all items of the game. I couldn’t resist asking him to play this debug mode! After a few minutes, I realized I couldn’t stop smiling. After a discussion with Gwen, Roy and Seb, we decided to create a proper New Game + for both Classic games. A few months later, the result is finally here! I really hope you will like it as much as we did.

These versions will be pushed on every current (Steam, GoG, Itch and Amazon Luna) and future platform where the games are already available on May 31st. A Mac version is not yet planned. Should you prefer to play the original version of the games (no DosBox emulation required anymore), they will be available as a free DLC on Steam. Regarding the Enhanced version of TLBA1 Classic, we decided to turn it into a free DLC (only on Steam). For the occasion, we renamed it “Mobile Edition”. However, we will not support this version, as we wish for current and future players to experience the game with its original difficulty and behaviour changes.

Another change on the 31st of May

For those who already own the games, the updates are free. However, these updates represent a big investment for a small studio like us. We then decided to increase the prices of both games to 9,99€. These changes will occur on the 31st of May, so you still have plenty of time to buy the games beforehand (or to offer it to a friend). After that, should you wish to buy at a lower price, please add the game to your wishlist to know about future discounted sales. Thanks for supporting us in our adventure of bringing back TLBA to the forefront.

Special thanks to our beta testers, who helped us with their amazing precise and thorough feedbacks.

See you on May 31st for a happy 25th Anniversary!
