Chicory: A Colorful Tale creator Greg Lobanov has teased that he and his team are officially working on a new game featuring a GIF of an adorable, hopping bipedal fox creature that I would love to be my new best friend.
Lobanov shared the news on Twitter just a minute before 2021 and said the announcement was a long time coming.
waited a long time to let everyone know:

“I’ve waited a long time to let everyone know: I’m working on something new with the chicory team =),” wrote Lobanov. “I can’t wait to talk more about it !!!!! I hope to be able to share details in 2022.”
The accompanying GIF of the aforementioned fox creature – which may or may not be part of the new game – is also featured on a job page for a creature concept artist for this new project.
The job description itself gives a few more clues as to what this game might be, as this role is for someone who has “designs with lots of character / personality” and “real world animals interested in and inspiration” / biology, among other things . ”
To those who have played Chicory: A Colorful Tale – the game we named our best puzzle game of 2021 – these words will sound familiar. Chicory was a beautiful and charming game that featured a number of wonderful anthropomorphic animals and this new project could very well be a sequel or a new game in its style and atmosphere.
In our Chicory review, we said that “it’s a flawless little adventure with fun puzzles, surprisingly rich color mechanics, and a disarmingly real, difficult, and heartfelt story.”
If you haven’t tried Chicory yet, it’s currently available for PS5, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
