Kyle Thompson, the solo developer behind the gorgeous, weird, and gorgeously weird metroidvania Sheepo, is back with a brand-new game for the Nintendo Switch, PC, and consoles called Islets, another hand-drawn metroidvania that had us at "what if Hollow Knight, but cats".

Iko is a hopeful aspiring warrior exploring the land and sky to reunite a series of floating islands. With his rickety airship, he must travel from island to island in order to reignite each one’s magnetic core while fighting off the many adversaries standing in his way.

By reuniting the islands and befriending a cast of charming characters, the world expands and reveals new parts of each area for Iko to explore. Scour every nook and cranny in order to collect the many upgrades hidden around this world and face its numerous hidden challenges!
