Dutch game developer Two Tribes has announced that Toki Tori 2 is in the works, and has invited gamers to be part of the development process.
In the game, our favorite small, round, yellow chick returns in a completely new adventure, developed from the ground up.
It will include an open development model, where interested players can "closely follow the progress," and have direct access to the developers through Twitter, blog updates, and access to early, playable versions of the title from day one.
'We're starting with a super-early version of Toki Tori 2, which is basically interactive concept art, running on Steam for people to try out," said Collin van Ginkel, creative director at Two Tribes. "We're very excited to be able to involve the Two Tribes community in such a direct way."
Starting today, gamers can sign up for the free Steam development version of Toki Tori 2. Initially only 200 copies will be distributed, so if interested, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
The initial release will be through Steam for PC and Mac during spring 2012. The game will eventually see releases on other platforms.
