Future Titles[]

A number of titles have been announced as to be in development by Vertigo Games.

Liquisity 2, a sequel to Liquisity, was announced on February 25, 2009.[18] Since then, Galindo had made considerable progress on the game's engine before he decided to stop work on it in favor of Spirits of Metropolis, later cancelling the project "in its current form". In December 2009, he restarted the project, redoing the game plot and storyline, and started a fundraiser through Kickstarter to pay commercial artists for the assets. He announced that Sara Gross and Jonathan Geer will do the graphics and music work, respectively.
