Good platform games are still favored by gamers and thanks largely to the efforts of indie developers. This sequel is something we've been waiting for, since Frozenbyte's really touched our hearts with the original.
Here's a snip:
As the heroes get together, the player immediately falls onto familiar ground. In single-player mode, gamers can change characters at any time, depending on what type of challenge they are currently facing. When the Knight and Thief can't reach a high platform or are unable to cross due to some vast obstacle that lies ahead, the Wizard may use his ability to move certain objects or create boxes or planks to climb higher. The best part is that all three characters feel useful throughout the entire game. The Wizard is usually the best at solving puzzles and getting the company out of jam thanks to his magic. Mind you, the Thief is nimble and quick and can reach certain areas by shooting out arrows with ropes in order to swing from platform to platform (a lot like Spider-Man, actually). The Knight is the best for defense and offense when facing enemies like Goblins, Lizards, Orcs and so on.

ZeniMax Media announced that 10 million units of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim have shipped for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, generating approximately $650 million in retail sales since the game's launch last month (Nov. 11). According to ZeniMax, the PC edition of Skyrim was the best-selling PC game in the US during the entire month on sale. Valve's digital distribution service Steam marks Skyrim as the fastest selling title in its history.
Holy crap, that's not small feat. Way to go Bethesda.
"We are gratified that Skyrim continues to garner high review scores and accolades around the world," said Robert Altman, Chairman and CEO of ZeniMax Media. "We are most grateful to our fans for their support and enthusiasm for the game, and their love of the hundreds of hours of gameplay it offers. We continue to strive to deliver the highest quality entertainment experience for everyone. 2012 will be another huge year for our fans, with the release of the Creation Kit, as well as exciting DLC which will add to the richness of this epic adventure."
"Skyrim is the fastest selling title in Steam's history" said Jason Holtman, Director of Business Development at Valve Corporation. "Bethesda's commitment to and understanding of the PC as a gaming platform shows in the great review scores, spectacular launch, and continued high player numbers that Skyrim has received. We are delighted that Bethesda chose to use Steamworks to support Skyrim both at retail and digitally."
The game's popularity continues to grow, largely thanks to the waves of positive reviews and fans. Not mention the flood of post-release content emerging from the community of mod-makers, as well as the whole 'Arrow In The Knee' phenomenon.
