Ecko Unltd. Says Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure Sequel Is In The Works
According to a tweet from the official Ecko Ultd. clothing twitter account, a sequel to Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure is currently in the works.
Released in 2006, Marc Ecko's Getting Up cast players as a graffiti artist named Trane as he tags the city of New Radius and outruns the city's opprssive police force. The game was made in partnership with the Ecko Unltd. lifestyle and clothing brand.
@joshface5000 Hi Josh, thanks for the love! Getting Up 2 is currently in the works! We'll let you know when we have a release date.— Ecko Unltd. (@EckoUnltd) February 14, 2013
The tweet above was sent out when a fan tweeted, "Marc Ecko's Getting Up 2 #GamesThatNeedToExist." Late last year, Devolver Digital brought the game over to Steam. We reviewed the game in 2006 giving it a 7.25.
Infamous Second Son inspired a conversation about this game in the office recently. In Infamous, Delsin is a graffiti artist, much like Trane. Devolver Digital's re-publishing of the first game last year certainly points to something being in the works. Getting Up was not a particularly memorable game, but it had some interesting ideas, so I'm curious to see what's next for the series.
