The Case of the Invisible Wizard is a forthcoming frog detective adventure

The Haunted Island: A Frog Detective Adventure was a short and adorable experience that made our list of underrated games from 2018. It was all about talking to animal people and solving simple puzzles while chilling to piano tunes and generally having a nice time. Now its creator, indie dev Grace Bruxner, has announced a sequel. Frog Detective 2: The Case of the Invisible Wizard, will be out later this year. 

The trailer makes it look like a similar balance of whimsy and gentle spookiness only this time there's a lion, a zebra, and a rhino among the animals in the mix. It seems like the gloriously pointless magnifying glass will make a comeback, and I'm holding out for a cameo from Lobster Cop, the off-camera legend from the first game.

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
