If you want Bertram Fiddle's 2nd episode you'll need to fund it on Kickstarter

Despite getting a Bronze Award and fusing Victorian fiction with silly humour, Betram Fiddle's first episode didn't make enough money to fund its second episode.

But not all is lost. The creators at Rumpus Animation have taken the game to Kickstarter where they hope to raise £25,000.

With this, and the money and work they've already got under their belt, Rumpus should be able to get Episode 2: A Bleaker Predicklement out by September 2016.

That'll be on Windows and Mac via Steam as well as iOS, as before.

As you'd expect, Bertram and and Gavin return in this second episode, and get closer to revealing the true identity of Geoff the Murderer.

"We want Episode 2 to be bigger and better and more puzzlier than the first," Rumpus says.

As part of this, it's also teamed up with German game studio Deck13 (creators of Dark Souls-esque console and PC game Lords of the Fallen) who will lend its expertise to Bertram Fiddle.

You can secure copies of Bertram Fiddle's second episode as well as all future episodes on PC or mobile over on its Kickstarter.

If you want to check out the first episode then it's available for £2.29 / $2.99 on the App Store or for £4.99 / $5.99 on Steam.
