The upcoming launch date of YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG was announced on December 8th at the Kinda Funny Games Showcase in Singapore. YII will be available starting January 17, 2019.
Developers Ysbrvd Games and Ackk Studios have described YIIK as a surreal Japanese-style RPG.
“After witnessing a woman vanish from an elevator, college graduate Alex embarks on an adventure to rescue her, which spirals into an epic quest with stakes higher than he could have ever imagined. Alex’s search for the woman and the truth behind her disappearance lead him and his companions on a journey rife with mystery and danger.“
Throughout Alex’s journey you will come across dungeons full of puzzles and bizarre monsters. You will be thrust into mini games and turn-based combat that will require unique tools to succeed.
It is said that there will be more than 30 hours as well as a main story campaign. The characters are voiced by some top talent such as: Chris Noise (Tales of Zestiria) and Clifford Chapin (Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel)
“YIIK is an unusual mix of almost hallucinatory imagery and cross-genre gameplay,” said Andrew Allanson, founder and co-director, Ackk Studios. “These elements will draw the player deep into a bizarre, dreamlike world as Alex pursues his quest for answers. But what truths will he discover? How many layers does the onion have?”
Available starting January 17, 2019, YIIK will be launched on the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, PC and Mac. A PS Vita version will follow later in 2019. The game is available to wishlist on Steam right now and a demo is also available via itch.io if you are interested in trying it out now.
