And Now for Something Completely Different


So Tilt to Live Easter was an April Fools joke, and we apologize to anyone who got super psyched about the Resurrection feature. Today is April 2nd, and this is the real deal.

I’d like to start by saying that we love Tilt to Live, and there’s still a long list of update ideas we could try. This is probably not the last you’ll see of the old arrow n’ dots, but let’s give it a rest for now. We feel a need to demonstrate to ourselves and the world that we are no one-trick pony. We want to be such a tricky pony!

In that spirit: Game II is a multiplayer-focused, turn-based strategy game for everyone. “For everyone” means that you won’t have to play a 25 minute tutorial before you can start having fun. There aren’t 30 buttons onscreen, there’s no dialogue to skip, and you don’t have to be a space marine. Turn-based meaning you can play a match all in one sitting, or back and forth at your convenience like Words with Friends.

The prototype is literally just being finished, so not a ton of details feature-wise yet. We’re definitely going for local and online multiplayer (with matchmaking), so you can have fun with a friend or with a Stranger Danger. You’ll have a number of races to choose from, each with a unique advantage on the battlefield. Below are some characters concepts for the Plant and Cuddly teams (“for everyone” also means there’s a cuddly team).

Also pictured: a severed head from the Robot team. Production for Game II is now in full swing, and it will be ready for release later this year on iPhone, iPod Touch, & iPad. Whether it will be two apps or universal has yet to be determined. We’ll continue blogging this weekly-ish with additional artwork and updates on our progress.

    From reading this once, it seems quite vague… BTW, the cuddly looks like a huggable from Battle Bears (in a way).

  2. QuantumApocalypse says:

    and it was only 37 minutes!

  3. Avenged110 says:

    Cool! Interested to see where this goes, as it’s a little vague on the details right now…

  4. Avenged110 says:

    Any details on what you’re actually doing in the game?

  5. Someone says:

    The respawn in 72 hours was a total giveaway. So was the easter eggs.

    Also, I wanna play as the robot. Robots are cool.

  6. Sarion says:

    Looks very cute. I think universal will be better.

  7. Jay says:

    Anyway to get in the beta? I was in the beta for numerous TTL betas… Id love to get it on this one. ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Solan says:

    Cool, but vague… It still looks awesome.

  9. Isaac says:

    I was surprised that anyone actually fell for TTL Easter. But anyway, this looks good, cant wait for more!

  10. Isaac says:

    Oh yeah, and I’d like to beta test too!

  11. Loons says:

    This seems to be a very nice concept ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t want to wait for it ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. Super Volcano says:

    I have to know, literally HAVE to know.

    Will this game be multiplayer only or simply have lot’s of multiplayer. If there is no campain/set of single player missions etc that make the game only playable with a friend, I just lost 73% of my excitement. No, really.

  13. Dan says:

    Can I be a beta tester too? ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Wry3it says:

    This looks great!

  15. Tilt to Live says:

    Nice new game, but I was psyched about a new Tilt to Live update, the best iOS game ever and one of the best games ever for any platform. Perfect iPhone game. Please keep up the updates.

    So if I won your first email raffle, and chose to win next prize, which was this, do I still get it? I got another email recently for the same soundtrack that I bought/ then later won through you guys

  18. Reedy says:

    Is the actual title of the game going to be called Game II or is that just what it’s going to be called for now?
    Also glad to hear you guys are working on something new, sounds great.

  19. Someone says:

    You still have purple to do on Ttl. Not now, but it seems weird without it.

  20. EPro says:

    Sorry, I have literally zero interest in a “multiplayer-focused, turn-based strategy game.” I will not buy.

  21. Ira1017 says:

    Uh…what type of game is this? you don’t happen to have any screenshots do you?

  22. Qurao says:

    If it’s like an RTS, only turn-based, I’m out.

  23. Ira1017 says:

    anyway what price is it?

  24. QuantumApocalypse says:

    You can’t decide whether this game is good or not by the current description. I mean, you could describe TTL like: ‘Oh, it’s just this random game where you kill dots with an arrow’. Sound interesting?

  25. […] Game II project was announced yesterday on One Man Left’s blog. The details are extremely scarce at this point, however, the company describes Game II as a […]

    Hmmm turn-based strategy just not for me =[. If it was something like an action-rpg I’d be drooling on my carpet..Something about turn-based is just really tedious for me. But I guess I’ll have to wait and see, it may just surprise me!

  27. Spencer says:

    I can’t wait for this! You guys are awesome! So many Negative Nancy’s in this post. I know whatever it is you’ll make it great.

  28. Isaac says:

    ^^^ this.

    I’m 99% certain that this will be awesome.

  29. Miguel says:

    Not really a huge fan of this genre, but I trust that my hommies at OneManLeft will craft an awesome game that I’m going to love. I had my doubts about Tilt to Live (a LONG time ago…) and now I’m a huge fan. The design looks good. I hope you guys don’t intend to title it “Game II.” And if your looking for Beta Testers…

  30. Steven says:

    Is this going to be a combination of fire emblem and starcraft?
