Last week, Snowman -- developer of beloved snowboarding game Alto's Adventure -- announced that its next game, Where Cards Fall, would be out this fall. However, we're going to get another game from the studio before that. Alto's Odyssey, the sequel to Alto's Adventure is set to launch this summer. From the brief teaser trailer released today, it looks like Odyssey will change things up in at least one significant way: Alto and his crew will be visiting the desert.

While the trailer keeps things somewhat vague, there's an undeniably different landscape in play here; the video's description also implores players to "discover the secrets of the endless desert." It looks like the new game will instead have you cruising down sand dunes rather than snowy mountainsides. Plenty of questions remain (how will your beloved llama herd survive in the desert?) but at least it won't be too long until we find out. Fortunately, the super-handy Wingsuit looks like it'll make it to Odyssey, as well.

If you haven't tried the original Alto's Adventure yet (and thus don't know what the heck the Wingsuit is), it's currently on sale for $1.99 to celebrate the game's second anniversary. And if you're on Android, it's free-to-play with a minimum of pleas for your cash. In all likelihood, the skills you pick up in the first game will translate to the second, so you might as well start your training now.
