Sam Barlow, the designer of Her Story, shared on Twitter yesterday that he was working on a follow up to the award-winning murder mystery game.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>HS2 has a 1-pager. Neat. <a href=””></a></p>&mdash; Sam Barlow (@mrsambarlow) <a href=”″>January 25, 2016</a></blockquote>

Despite having a 2 in its title, Her Story 2 will be a standalone game, with no relation to the original.

In an email sent to Polygon, Sam Barlow said, “”It’s I guess a spiritual successor,” “I.e. there is no story connection, but I hope it builds on what people liked about the first one!”

Meanwhile, on Twitter, the designer heavily suggested that Her Story 2 would share one thing from Her Story: the full motion video-style live action sequences. While the game is, according to Sam Barlow, still in early development, he told Polygon that he has “ambitious plans” for the new game.
