William and Sly 2 is a gorgeous, ethereal fantasy exploration game wherein you play a nimble fox tasked with finding the scattered pages of your human friend's journal, while gathering mushrooms, finding keys to unlock mystery boxes, and freeing rune-bound spirits and pixies trapped in frost along the way.

The Jay is Games review and walkthrough is here. Created by Lukas Paakh, William and Sly 2 has been nominated for the Jay is Games Best of 2011 reader poll. See also Kattallus' earlier post on Lukas Paakh, and i less than three nsima's 2009 post on the original William and Sly game.

Wow, that's one of the prettiest Flash games I've ever seen.

It's gorgeous, but it's not a very good game :(

Oh yay! I loved the first one.

I like how I return to the guy while surrounded by a cloud of the firefly thingies and followed by a herd of pixies and he says, "Have you found anything yet?"

What kind of writer is that guy, he can't be bothered to find his own pages?! And why isn't he using a computer?!

Gorgeous graphics indeed. The movement of the fox is very fluid and lively.

Lovely. I really enjoyed that. It's a casual, pretty Metroidy explore-em-up with no conflict. The last few keys were hard to find, but before that it's all pretty easy going. You can easily complete it within an hour and a half, and well within an hour if you're a bit more thorough than me.

I played this a while ago on Kongregate, and I really enjoyed it. It's a good length - there's some challenge to finding everything, but it can be played in one session.

The first one was enjoyable too.

Does it save on exit?

oh nice, i got almost to the end, and accidentally paged back, paged forward again and it remembered where i was.

Yes, it does remember your progress.

I haven't played the first one, but I should.

This might be kind of obvious, but you tell me you've got a game about a fox named Sly who is searching for pages from a lost journal and I'm going to think you're talking about something different.
