Departing Outcast Cove, players continue the unfolding story and set sail for the high seas, where a desert island lures wanderers with promise of pirate treasure hoards. Shanty Seas adds over two hours of all-new content, including eight puzzle-based Quests, six Wand and Orb skins, and two full levels, as well as beautiful upgrades to art and UI in both Chapters. Wielding the Gear VR Controller, players must fish for sunken loot, brew grog, and explore abandoned environments to reveal what happened to the once-idyllic isle.

The second expansion also introduces reduced pricing. Previous owners of Hidden Fortune : Chapter One will be able to download Chapter Two for free, while new players can download Chapter One for free, and purchase Chapter Two for $5.99 USD.

“With Shanty Seas, we’ve made some fantastic improvements across the board,” said Ed Lago, producer at Archiact. “From the gorgeous new levels and art, to the added gameplay and Wands, we bet players will never want to leave!”

Hidden Fortune is an adventurous treasure hunt through a virtual world of charm and enchantment. As a young sorcerer on a daring quest to rescue their family, players must use their magic—cast forth with the Gear VR touchpad or controller—to explore the vivid world around them, and collect peculiar trinkets to aid in their mission.

Chapter Two of Hidden Fortune is available now for $5.99 USD on Samsung Gear VR, and as a free download for previous owners of Chapter One.
