Last October, ZeptoLab celebrated the fifth anniversary of Cut the Rope with the announcement of Cut the Rope: Magic, the next installment in the wildly popular puzzle game franchise. Now, the developer has revealed a teaser trailer along with a definite release date for the upcoming game.
The franchise thus far
The Cut the Rope franchise began with the release of the original Cut the Rope game in October 2010. Featuring cleverly constructed physics-based puzzles and starring a cute candy-craving creature called Om Nom, it turned out to be such a big hit that a special holiday edition called Cut the Rope: Holiday Gift was introduced just the following December (it’s now unavailable, though).
A couple of spinoff editions were eventually released: Cut the Rope: Experiments in August 2011 and Cut the Rope: Time Travel in April 2013. In between, in January 2013, the spinoff augmented-reality game Cut the Rope: Candy Flick was launched.
And now, for its next trick
Fast forward to a year later and here we are again, in the run-up to a new entry in the Cut the Rope franchise, with the new game this time being Cut the Rope: Magic.
“In Cut the Rope: Magic, Om Nom accidentally teleports into an enchanted book, chasing an evil wizard who has stolen all of his candies,” ZeptoLab notes. “But the little monster’s got his own tricks this time – like the power of shapeshifting!”
