Toronto, Ontario; Vienna, Austria; Finland; Tokyo, Japan - December 2nd, 2019 - LABS Works, a newly formed indie studio started by industry veterans Matt Kap and Simon Parzer who previously worked together on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, today announced that Castle in the Darkness 2 is now in development, a sequel to 2015’s Castle In The Darkness. This sequel offers a similar brand of high-speed, action-rpg exploration to the first game, but launches it to new heights!

“Castle in the Darkness 2 still features pixel art, but the fidelity has received a major upgrade” says Kap of the new game. “I’m really pushing my limits. I made the first game with an 8-bit aesthetic to keep it fast and simple because I was working on it mostly alone”, says Kap. “But now with Simon taking care of all the technical stuff, along with a few talented specialists, I can focus 100% of my effort on producing the best graphics, music and game design that I’m able to. That’s an incredible feeling!” Along with the news comes a fresh announcement trailer, which is embedded below:

Though details are sparse at the moment, Kap implores everyone to follow LABS on social media. “We will be publishing mini-trailers on the 2nd day of every month that will show off a specific aspect of the game or its development. We have lots of surprises in store, and we’re super excited to share them with you!”
