Killmonday Games, Sweden-based developer behind the unsettling and beloved Fran Bow, is at it again– crafting a new uniquely macabre and thoughtful title for players to consume with a grimace, then a smile. Little Misfortune‘s official release trailer launched in November 2018, and the title is said to take place in the same universe as Fran Bow, although with a new heroine at the fore. Says Little Misfortune of itself:
“Little Misfortune is an interactive story, focused on exploration and characters, both sweet and dark, where your choices have consequences. Starring Misfortune Ramirez Hernandez, an imaginative 8-year-old, who seeks the prize of Eternal Happiness, as a gift to her Mommy. Led by her new friend, Mr. Voice, they venture into the woods, where mysteries are unraveled and a little bit of bad luck unfolds.”
Originally Little Misfortune‘s beta was to be ready by early March, but it was announced on March 4 that a few more weeks would be necessary for completion. For the surging mass of fans begging for more Fran Bow, even a belated beta is good news. A 2019 release is expected for Little Misfortune, at least for PC on Steam, with console and mobile launches following.
