Be still my heart. I hyped the crap out of Hotel Dusk, from the moment it was announced until the moment I got the “good ending”. The ending left a lot of stuff up in the air. Too much stuff. I prayed for a sequel. Then today an interview surfaced that made me very happy:
NoE: How do you see the future of the interactive mystery novel as a genre of video games, and do you already have ideas for a follow-up title? And will we see Kyle Hyde again?
TM: “We think in the future, there will be games where people can deduct – can draw conclusions – with various other people at the same time, by making use of a network feature. We think at that time, games will become truly interactive.
“As for Mr. Hyde – we think that he is also looking forward to meeting you again.”

That’s proof enough for me! The sales on Hotel Dusk were pretty good, and it was a critical success. Take on me!
