Welcome to the Game II (stylized as Welcome II the Game) is an upcoming puzzle horror game developed by Reflect Studios, and a sequel to Welcome to the Game.
Its expected release date is unknown.
Story and GameplayEdit
Though the sequel's story and characters are unrelated to the original, it still has the same mechanical gist, as first-person, puzzle-based Deep Web exploration. The player controls Clint Edwards, a reporter investigating the disappearance of a woman, Amelea, who frantically explained through a livestream that she's being hunted by some men in masks. Clint's only lead is on the Shadow Web, the darkest bowel of the Deep Web.
His goal is to scour the Deep Web for eight hashes that can be pieced together into the Shadow Web browser. To avoid trouble with law enforcement for his illegal activity, Clint must jump between his neighbors' Wi-Fi's after hacking into them, while also fending off other hackers trying to invade his computer. Clint can order products to help him, like Wi-Fi Boosters and Motion Sensors, with DOSCoin. Clint earns DOSCoin by setting up scam sites and doing hack bounties.
On August 29, 2017, Reflect Studios' Adam Flatau announced his long-awaited passion project, Rides With Strangers, was suffering financial issues due to its expensive, borderline triple A development. As compensation, Adam promised a soon-to-be-released sequel to his well-received side-project Welcome to the Game, as doing such would both cost little money and produce the profit needed to fund the rest of Rides With Strangers. Its release date is unknown, but Adam said he's trying to get it out by Halloween. On September 25, the game's Steam Store page was launched. WTTG2 getting wrapped up was postponed in favor of The Waiting Room, a prelude and DLC of WTTG1.
