A sequel to one of the best mobile games out there is in the works, but you’ll have to wait a little longer to get your hands on it.
Snowman, the developers behind Alto’s Adventure, is in the process of making a sequel to the hit mobile game called Alto’s Odyssey. In the new title, Alto and his friends are back, this time trading snowy peaks for desert hills. While most of the game’s mechanics are the same as its predecessor’s, that’s certainly not a bad thing. You’ll guide Alto and his friends down endless sandy hills, collecting items and avoiding obstacles along the way. The big new mechanic here is the ability to wall ride, which will allow you to climb higher than before.
We aren’t sure how long the game will be delayed, though we hope it’s not long
Today Snowman released a blog post letting users know that Alto’s Odyssey is taking a little longer to build than originally planned. To be fair, the developer never gave a solid launch date when the game was first announced, only telling us it would arrive “this summer.” We aren’t sure how long the game will be delayed, though we hope it’s not long.
We talk about delayed software updates all the time here at Android Authority. And when the subject of delays comes up, I think most people would rather have a polished experience that takes longer to build rather than an unpolished one that’s rushed out the door. “As a small studio striving to make sure everything we release is lasting and artful, we’re firm believers that much of what makes an experience magical lies in the little touches,” explains the developer.
Of course, we’ll be sure to let you know when we hear any updates from Snowman about the Alto’s Odyssey launch. For now, feel free to check out the game in action in the video attached above.
