A Valley Without Wind 2 Announced; Free for Owners of Original

Games By Design announces plans for A Valley Without Wind 2, a sequel to their procedurally generated side-scrolling action game. This was spotted on VG247 after being posted on Friday, but the site clarifies why this has not been formally announced (apologies to them for whatever undesired hype mentioning this provides): "We're now reversing that stance, however. We actually don't particularly want major news coverage about this in advance of it being playable, we decided. Why? We don't want it to be over-hyped, and we don't want to run up against potential skepticism for people who didn't like the first game. We're still in the process of getting the art assets together to where we could really do a true announcement, and so we haven't even contacted any of the press just yet about it." Word is the sequel will be free to owners of the first game, and here's word on what it will involve:

Is this really a sequel?
Make no mistake, Valley 2 is a true sequel -- it's a lot more different from the first game than many sequels are compared to their original. There are a lot of changes I've been wanting to make for a while to the game, but these changes were too deep to do without angering players who bought one game and then had us change it on them to that degree. This way players can keep playing the original in its current state (though we won't be doing much more of anything to update the original game from here on out), and they can also enjoy the awesome sequel for free as well.

And I get this for free if I already have the first game?
Yeah. Basically everyone will be getting both games whenever they buy either one. Kind of like what Zeboyd Games does with Breath of Death 7 and C Saves the World. You get both for the price of one.

Sounds interesting.

I loved the first game but I played it mostly when they released the first public beta (for pre-orders) about a year ago and wasted a lot of time on it.
When the game was finally released I wasn't interested any more.

But I'm still intrigued about the changes they want to implement into the second game.
I really liked the base-building meta-game but from what I understand it was completely removed in one of the updates. Or am I mistaken?
