“All Yoku wants to do is soak up the rays delivering parcels in his new job in a tropical paradise. But first, he must traverse the island helping others and try to waken an ancient deity trapped in a restless sleep. Explore the colourful open world of Mokumana, test your pinball skills, and earn wild new power-ups to help the friendly locals”.Xbox

“Embark on an adventure through Asposia to find the last wind monk and fulfill Robert’s destiny as the heir to the flute nose throne. Switch seamlessly between playing as Robert, Laura, the rebel who flies off the handle, or Peck, the pigeon who doesn’t fly at all. This charming adventure game is filled with brainteasers, humour, beautiful music, and lots of heart”.Xbox
