Were you wondering about the recent talking on the net about the Lost Crown 2 and 3?
Jonathan Boakes was so kind to send a message to Gameboomers to reveal what's going on!

Quote:
There's an fun saying, regarding bus stops, that goes 'you wait an hour for a bus, then three come along at the same time'.

It's been a bit longer than an hour since any 'Crown' news, sorry(!!) but I'm pleased to say that I've been writing the third Crown game, behind the scenes. While making game two, 'The Last Crown - Haunting of Hallowed Isle', I found it logical to carry on through and write the next one while the atmosphere was fresh in my mind.

I've always had plans for a Trilogy, given that three Anglo-Saxon noblemen arrived on Saxton Shore, all those centuries ago.
Ganwulf, Pendread and their father Auldwulf.
Ganwulf, we met in The Lost Crown, but game two concerns his brother, Pendraed. His story takes us out to Hallowed Isle, just off the coast of Saxton. It's been wonderful to find new locations, create new characters, and think up new ghost-stories (the binding fabric of the Crown games).
Basically, I've got a bit addicted to Saxton, with it's folky feel and timeless atmosphere. That's always a good sign!

So, I'm pleased to announce that the third game, 'The First Crown' will follow on next year. Wonderfully confusing titles! The 'first' is the 'last', and all that.

For now, I look forward to finally revealing some scenes from the next instalment, in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully, some scenes will appear via the GDC Expo too!
It seems like an age since Nigel first walked into Saxton, from across the Fens, "Deep, dark, swamp-like water", but I'm buzzing with enthusiasm for the next games. It's a great little world, with peculiar goings on, which is very close to me. While there's interest in my games, I'll keep making them. It really is a privilege to be able to make these things, like mini interactive films, which I enjoy immensely. So expect plenty more from me.


Thank you Jonathan! bravo praise
