If you didn’t play ASCII game Candy Box earlier this year, then you probably got a lot more work done than I did. The compulsive candy farming game now has a follow up, and it’ll be available tomorrow to play in your browser right here. So enjoy your productivity levels dropping to somewhere around zero.
When the first Candy Box started to spread around Twitter, it became the obsession of gamers and games writers everywhere. The general idea was to amass as many candies as possible, and use them to buy equipment to make your way through levels filled with increasingly powerful enemies, until you ended up descending to Hell itself. It was weird, joyful, and utterly engrossing. Hopefully we can expect more of the same from Candy Box 2.
