Emily Is Away Too Announced

Emily Is Away Too Announced

Announced Yesterday, Kyle Seely is currently working on Emily is Away Too, a sequel and successor to Emily is Away, a narrative game told through the nostalgic lens of an AIM-like instant messenger.



Create your screen name, customize your profile and choose your path through this branching narrative. Chat with both Emily and Evelyn, two fellow seniors in your class. Extend the story past the messaging window with youtube links, facebook profiles and file transfers. Determine the outcome of your high school years with multiple ending support. So sign in again and relive your teenage years with Emily is Away Too.

Emily is Away Too is the spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed original. It features new characters and a new story, but still builds on the design of the first game. Emily Too will have two opposing characters to chat with, customizable profiles and multiple endings. It also behaves much more like a chat application, allowing for hyperlinks and file transfers. The new features open up the possibilities for interesting narrative design while still feeling true to the original.

Right now, all we have is  2017 as a date to look forward to, but as more information becomes available, we will be sure to update you.

Have your say!
