Flashback 2, the sequel to 1992’s Flashback, has a new trailer and a release date. At Summer Games Fest on Thursday, host Geoff Keighley premiered the game, showing off a brand new trailer.
Its director, Paul Cuisset, had some insights to share about the long-awaited sequel. The game’s sci-fi setting returns with new and old characters alike. The Morphs are scheming again, and it’s up to you to put a stop to it.
“Developing a sequel to Flashback is an idea I’ve had for a very long time. I can’t wait for players to discover the new adventures of Conrad B. Hart, a character created almost 30 years ago. With Microids, we are really aiming to please the fans of the original title while being appealing to any players with a weak spot for futuristic games“ says
The description reads:
“Conrad is back! 30 years after Flashback, Paul Cuisset’s mythical game, which made the licence known worldwide, is back with this new sci-fi action-adventure game!
“After his victory over the ‘Master Brain’ in the first episode, Conrad and his allies are once again confronted with the Morphs, who threaten all civilizations.
“Moreover, his friend Ian, who has answers to many of Conrad’s questions, has just been kidnapped in front of him… A trick of the Morphs? For what purpose? It’s up to you to find out…
“Help him and his allies to solve this delicate and dangerous investigation through 5 levels full of action and shoot-outs and to fight the Morphs who are preparing a machiavellian plan for total control of the solar system…”
