Valley 2: Reviews, Podcasts, and Let's Play Videos

Valley 2 1.003 is out now, if you hadn't heard. As we let the game breathe a bit, our focus shifts to Shattered Haven's official launch later this month (March 18th, to be exact). Before that, however, we wanted to highlight all the coverage Valley 2 (and company) has seen in the past month -- specifically the reviews, interviews, and let's plays.

Thanks to all these folks for taking time to play the game, and/or chat with the team.

Podcasts
Chris joined the GameSpot GamePlay podcast for its 30th episode to discuss both Valley 2 and PS4 (among other topics)

Pablo, Josh, and I chatted with The Koalition, keeping it together for a solid 45 minutes!

Chris was also on Just Press Start's podcast to discuss a variety of gaming topics.

Game Wisdom's talk with Chris is centered on Valley 2 itself, including an in depth discussion on the design aspects.

  1. Huh. Mixed reception, I see.

  2. Not actually mixed at all. If you take 30 reviews, and 7 are half or less impressed. Then you have less than a third actually. So... more than two thirds good reviews is very impressive. Lots of triple A games don't hit the launch with two thirds very good reviews. Good to see that for Arcen!
