Hooked Digital Media, the production company that brought us Haunting Melissa, has announced that principal photography for Haunting Melissa 2 has begun. The story picks right back up one month after Melissa’s disappearance. Like the original, Haunting Melissa 2 will use Dynamic Story Elements (DSE) that can change the story upon repeat viewing, making each time you play all the more horrifying. The game will be released exclusively on Apple’s new iOS8 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
The original Haunting Melissa was the brain child of director Neal Edelstein, who produced “The Ring,” “The Ring 2,” and “Mulholland Drive,” and was written by Andrew Klavan who penned “True Crime” and “Don’t Say A Word”. They have returned with a a cast of talented actors to make Haunting Melissa 2 disturb the pants off us all over again.
If you haven’t checked out the original game you can pick it up in the App Store for free.

We all knew there would eventually be an Angry Birds sequel, the only questions were how long would it take and what would it look like? While we don’t have any new information about the former we may have learned a bit about the latter, as Rovio CEO Peter Vesterbacka provided us a hint on the direction the franchise may be taking. Vesterbacka stated that “We are not going to do a [traditional] sequel. We want to surprise people. No one has told the story from the pigs point of view.” Interesting. Would an “Angry Pigs” game consist of the same physics-based puzzle system wherein players try to snatch the birds’ eggs from their nests, or might Rovio be considering a complete spin-off of the franchise with entirely new gameplay.
For those more interested in the traditional Angry Birds experience Vesterbacka has also confirmed that the team is working on a multiplayer version of the game. “Multiplayer Angry Birds will be like old school Worms games”, he said. “Multiplayer is a priority, but we have not determined the best way for our players to experience it yet.” In our mind an Angry Birds multiplayer would consist of a game where two players go back and forth trying to knock down an opponent’s fortress while protecting their own. In addition to attack birds maybe the game would include some defensive birds as well which could shield your castle from damage. Who knows what the final version will look like though, we’ll just have to have faith in Rovio’s vision and see what they can come up with.
At any rate, one of the biggest franchises on iOS is inevitably going to get even bigger and we’re quite excited. All this on top of the fact that Angry Birds will soon be invading consoles, leaving no one safe from their addictive, physics-based gameplay. Anybody else suddenly have birds on the brain?
