Ysbryd Games and Ackk Studios' YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG will be landing on Nintendo Switch in just over a month's time, it has been revealed.
Featuring "surreal Japanese-style RPG set at the end of last millennium", YIIK has players traversing dungeons littered with puzzles, traps, and bizarre monsters while utilising a particularly strange array of items and weapons. You'll use records, cameras, musical instruments and more against the floating skulls, tortoise samurais, and other enemies you'll come up against, so don't expect to find your usual swords and arrows in this game.
All of this plays out in a combat system which "blends twitchy minigames with turn-based combat" and a world which uses polygonal rendering and a lack of textures to create "almost hallucinatory imagery". To learn a little more about the game's backstory, check out this description below.
"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."
With more than 30 hours of content including a fully-voiced main story campaign - which features talents such as Chris Niosi (Tales of Zestiria, Disgaea 5), Clifford Chapin (Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Attack on Titan, RWBY) and more - this one looks like it could well be worth your time.
The game launches on Switch on 17th January and will be available for $19.99. Does this one look like your kind of game? Let us know with a comment below.
