Supraland has slowly become a cult hit on Steam. A solo developer’s product is a self-described mix of Zelda, Metroid, and Portal, and while it makes little impression at first glance, its quality has given it a lot of positive word of mouth. Now that it hits over 600,000 players, the developer teases a sequel and a half.
“Supraland now has over 600,000 unique players (plus pirates),” the official announcement said. (You can probably check out Pirate Bay or something else for the rest of the point.) The game was originally set for a DLC expansion, but that has since evolved into a stand-alone version that’s “something like Supraland 1.5”. Not quite SL2, but far more than a DLC. “
Supraland Six Inches Under is expected to begin public alpha testing in the second quarter of this year before reaching Steam Early Access and eventually final release. (No timeline for the last two steps.) “There is no deadline except” when it’s good “.”
That’s half the sequel, but Supraland 2 is also coming and is currently in preproduction. All the details are in the flow, but the current plan is to introduce more puzzle battles, more robust sequence-breaking options, and skills that go beyond the usual high jumps and wall climbing seen in many Metroidvanias. The studio is currently busy building the sequel.
