This sequel promises to be a major step up from the original

The original The House of Da Vinci was released way back in 2017 to a pretty warm reception, being highly praised for its impressive visuals, captivating soundtrack, and reasonable challenges. That said, there were also reports that the controls could be rather fiddly, which is one of the issues that the developer has promised to fix in the sequel.

If you have played that first game, then you’ll probably remember that it wrapped up with a cliffhanger. After several hours of investigation to find out what happened to Leonardo, you ended up finding yourself at a pretty abrupt conclusion. Now, however, we’ll finally get to see everything in the sequel.
