Publisher Chilled Mouse announced today that it will be publishing Chime 2, the sequel to music-based puzzler Chime (pictured above).
The original Chime released just over five years ago in February of 2010. Chime was a surprise at the time, hitting Xbox Live (and later Windows and PlayStation 3) at a pretty low price while offering a new perspective on games like Tetris but also an interesting integration of some genuinely good music.
Chilled Mouse Director Ian Baverstock said in the press release that “the creation of a sequel to Chime has been something I have wanted to do for a long time. The first game was fantastic but we always felt that there was more that could be done with the idea and now we can make that happen.”
Chime 2‘s development is being led by Ste Curran, who also led development on the original.
The team plans to show the game off next week at EGX Rezzed in London, and the game is set to release sometime in 2015. It’ll be hitting Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. We reached out to the team for word on any console versions and, while they have nothing to announce, they didn’t shut down the idea.
“Plans,” they said via Twitter. “So many plans! Stay tuned.”
