"Way Walkers: University" and "Way Walkers: University 2" now available on Steam, plus new Halloween content!

Hosted Games is proud to present an update and expansion to Way Walkers: University by J. Leigh!

First, both Way Walkers: University and Way Walkers: University 2 are out now on Steam, and Way Walkers: University has a brand new content expansion.

In this massive, 150,000 word new Way Walkers Adventure written by J. Leigh and Mac J Rea, unlock four new chapters to explore how the magical city of Tar’citadel celebrates Halloween–or as they call it, the Night of the Thinned Veil: when anyone can see ghosts and spirits, be they Talented or no!

It’s 25% off until Oct 29th!

The Embassy District throws open their doors to one and all on Thinned Veil Night, and you can choose to explore three of the eleven embassies-- Clan Lands, with their vampiric race and the Way of Protection, Furōrin-Iki, the plant-like people who uphold the Way of Healing, and Kinawa, home to the bird-race and the Way of Truth!

Explore these with your friends Kess and Umbrave, or your roommate and fellow kinsperson. And for the boldest of you-- head out with Semryu after midnight for the true meaning behind Thinned Veil Hauntings!

Way Walkers: University is a 345,000 word interactive science-fantasy novel by J. Leigh, where your choices control the story. It’s entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

  • Will you follow the Way of the Healer, or carve your reputation as a Warrior?
  • Shall gossip and relationships fill your days, or shall you choose the Way of Truth and study?
  • Will you seek fame along the Way of Creativity, or hone your Abilities under the Way of magic?
  • Will you choose a righteous path, or fall to the Way of Evil?
New adventures await you in Night of the Thinned Veil DLC! Buy now for an additional 4 chapters.

I’ve been silently waiting for this release… thank you for making this happen before Halloween, everyone.

Congrats, J. Leigh (@WayWalkerLeigh) and Mac J Rae, on getting the Steam release; it is well deserved.

(Sorry Mac J Rae, for not mentioning you originally. I did not know the project was a collaboration)

@KaiDeleon you guys forgot to include Mac Rea’s name in the announcement. She worked too hard on Halloween to be left out :sweat: can you at least update it in the forum post?

Ooh. Looks very interesting.

Apologies! I have fixed that in the blog announcement and in this post. For what it is worth Mac has been properly credited in the actual game, and this was merely a mistake on behalf of my morning brain. I appreciate your patience!

Oh, warning, when you reach the end of the free part, it says, “Remember earlier how we told you that the first NUMBER chapters are available for free?”

That’s great news! But what about the standalone app on the Appstore? Will the expansion be available there as well, in an update or IAP?

It’s an update of WWU1. You’ll see the prompts to buy after u update either at the beginning or after the clubs scenes. :slight_smile:

Actually we haven’t implemented the IAP update to the standalone iOS app yet. For now, you will need to buy it in the Choice of Games app.

WWU is really one of my favorit and I can’t wait for the 3rd. In the meantime, the dlc is quite good and make me replay the first game (and his sequel) with delight.

Still… Can’t wait for the 3rd ^^

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems an old bug has come back to haunt you. I can’t seem to beat Clay as a battlemage (I even maxed all my stats to test). I browsed some old threads for this game and it seemed to be a recurring problem. Love the games though!

That’s bizzare. Can you pm me some screenshots?

For some reason I was only able to visit one embassy on my first playthrough. The one with the compost. Is this normal?
