Wet 2 confirmed. I would assume Eliza is on board for this, although there's no mention of her.

Y'know, the gamer in me would usually be all "AWESOME~!" but I'm waiting Saint's Row 3. Eliza as Shaundi is just.. There are no words to how awesome she makes that character.

WET wasn't exactly well received.. The gameplay was pretty fun, what there was of it. Most of it was quick-time events (press X or whatever button in time to do Y attack as part of a cutscene) and most gamers hate quick-time events.

Still, maybe the sequel might have a bunch of decent improvements.. More Eliza can't be wrong~
I'm fairly surprised a sequel is being made. There might be hope for that movie after all. Honestly game sequels are all about redemption for me. I loathed both mass effect and assassin's creed. But their sequels were both mind blowing. Hopefully wet can do the same.

Also, I looked up reviews for naughty bear. Now how did that get a sequel?
'Wet 2: Soaked to the Bone'. And that's ™ game creator type people - you gotta pay to play. Or alternatively, come up with something actually good, your choice.

Game development is starting to cost Hollywood-crazy money so an uptick in sequels isn't too surprising (if that's what we're seeing - games have had sequels since forever and in general i'm pro them since a world without sequels is a world without 'Jet Set Willy' and I don't want to live in such a place). Still, even if the days of bedroom programmers are more or less gone, the barrier to entry is low enough that there'll always be indie game developers.
I didn't think this would get a sequel either. It didn't get the best reviews.
Saints Row 2 is the greatest video game I've ever played, so I'm very excited about Saints Row 3. I picked up Wet a little while ago, but I haven't got around to playing it yet.
I always find it interesting how games (usually) live or die on the reviews they get. There's snark here and there, but generally, the best selling games are the ones with high praise. Completely unlike films and TV shows.

Re: WET, I only played the demo and wasn't really impressed. The maths might be that if they even get half the sales of the first game, it'll pay for itself - since, er, the the world and system is already built. Or something. Hmm...
My husband played Wet and he absolutely adored it. Was it the best game he ever played? No. However, he did have one hell of a fun time playing it. Not to mention the game had one sweet soundtrack. (Which sadly is unavailable as a CD.)

The game was, as my hubby puts it, Big Dumb Fun.

Plus the story was a lot of fun too, which sometimes you need.

Also, Rubi was a refreshing game heroine. Basically she was played like Starbuck from new BSG. IE: a masculine character who just happens to be a woman. Despite her being a very attractive woman, there was nothing overtly sexual in the game either.

Ironically, we need more characters like Rubi in our video games.
I think the game was fun, however I felt it tried to be too many different things and never really succeeded at any of them. It wanted to be a shooter, it wanted to be like Mirror's Edge, etc. and because it tried to be so many different things, never really got good at any 1 thing. I do like the game though.

Also, a few months ago on Twitter, I was lurking Eliza's page and noticed she replied to someone who had said "I want a Wet movie starring Eliza" with "have patience..." so they still might be into a movie.
Wet was pretty good. Not great, but definitely showcased its potential. I think the sequel could be fantastic, especially if they bring Eliza on board again.

You loathed Mass Effect? That's... wow.
@the dark shape the Mako was just far more than I could handle. I'm not ashamed to say my frustrations with it marred my enjoyment of the game. Just knowing I would have to drive around in it to accomplish most anything... pure misery.
WET was one of those games that I almost didn't play due to the reviews it received, but in the end I was glad I did decide to play it. It's was fun overall and can only be improved upon in the second one. I hope the sequel is longer though.
