‘Fran Bow’ Follow Up ‘Little Misfortune’ Announced


Three years ago, indie game Fran Bow took the world by storm. Combining elements of horror and fantasy, the title piqued the interest of gamers and streamers across the globe. My former site went so far as to name Fran Bow Western Indie of the Year. After three long years, we now know what’s next from developer Killmonday Games: Little Misfortune.

On Wednesday, the studio announced its upcoming title Little Misfortune, which will launch early/mid 2019. The title takes place in the same world as Fran Bow, so we will learn more about the cult hit’s wonderfully strange world. Most of the game’s details remain under wraps, but Killmonday provided a brief synopsis on their website.

“Starring Misfortune Ramirez Hernandez, an imaginative 8-year-old, who seeks the prize of Eternal Happiness, as a gift to her Mommy. Led by her new friend, Mr. Voice, they venture into the woods, where mysteries are unraveled and a little bit of bad luck unfolds.”

Mystery, darkness, animal companions, and child heroes? Yes, we are definitely returning to the Fran Bow universe. Unlike its predecessor, Little Misfortune employs voice actors to bring the characters to life. Fran Bow’s dialogue sparkled, so getting to hear the team’s writing aloud should excite fans everywhere. The art style immediately brings back memories of Fran Bow, though with a more light-hearted touch. The team appears to still be committed to creating games about a hero’s journey through darkness. If this game follows in Fran Bow’s footsteps, you can sign me up immediately.

This marks a change for the studio, which had previously announced plans for Different Galaxy. The team says that they still intend to finish that game, but that they will require more funds to do so. Hopefully, Little Misfortune helps enough that we get Different Galaxy in the near future as well.
