Gunman Clive creator not opposed to making a third entry

Two Gunman Clive games have been made thus far. Could creator Bertil Hörberg eventually work on a third entry. Possibly, but don’t expect to see an announcement anytime soon.

Speaking with Nintendojo, Hörberg said:

I don’t know; it won’t be any time soon but I’m not against the idea of another sequel in the future. If I do create a Gunman Clive 3 or continue the series even further I think I will shake up the formula a bit more and do something a bit different. GC2 started as a very straightforward sequel with basically just more levels. I think it grew to be a bit more ambitious than that in the end, but it still follows the first game very closely in terms of the core gameplay and structure. Honestly I don’t really know where to go from here thematically; in GC2 I tried to make everything feel grander and more dramatic. He’s already been to space and traveled around the world, fought dinosaurs and giant robots, so I don’t know how I’d top that to make his next adventure feel like a clear step up again.

Hörberg also commented on his interest in porting Gunman Clive 2 to additional platforms. Wii U remains one system that could receive the game.

For now my goal is port the game to more platforms, but I haven’t made much progress with that yet, so it’ll be some time before I get started on a new project. I have a few loose ideas but nothing solid yet and I’ll spend some time prototyping before I decide anything.

Yes, possibly (Wii U as one of those platforms). My plan was to start with the platforms the first game was on (iOS, Android & Steam), as I want everyone who played that to be able to get the sequel, and then move on to Wii U and possibly other consoles. But we’ll see how many versions I’m able to do before I want to move on to a new game, so I’m not promising anything definite yet. The 3DS version made up for the vast majority of the total sales for GC1, but I don’t feel I can disregard the other platforms after one game, and it shouldn’t be too much work to port it. As I mentioned though, I haven’t gotten very far yet and it’s going pretty slowly still.
