House Flipper is a great game, especially for those who prefer a quieter experience. It fits into the same noble niche as titles like Stardew Valley, PowerWash Emulatoror Open the package – you just need to turn off your brain for a bit and enjoy the soothing experience of painting the walls or sweeping the dull dining room into a nice little breakfast nook. And on Tuesday, the game’s developer took to Twitter to announce the upcoming sequel, along with a stunning teaser video.
While there aren’t many specifics, it’s a nice surprise to look forward to – especially when I download House Flipper twice a year to zoning and renovating some lovely starter homes.
The trailer shows a much more realistic looking office space and the protagonist fiddles with some radio buttons, checks their answering machine and writes some notes on stickers for later use. . It’s not exactly an exhilarating, high-octane battle, but that’s not really the point of House Flipper experience. The teaser also shows a pretty big leap in graphics and lighting, so it’ll be interesting to see if that adapts to large-scale renovations and rubbish.
You can also spot the QR code on the bulletin board, which shows up in the trailer, leading to website for the sequel. So far, the site only shows a brick wall backdrop, but it would be nice if you knew where to find future information about the project.
House Flipper 2 is set for release in 2023, but the original game is still receiving DLC. In May 2022, players will be able to adopt a pet in House Flipper.
