(Video) YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG - Launch

2019-01-24


Bash skulls in with vinyl records. Solve conspiracies involving haunted
boomboxes and reality-bending alpacas. Then get hype for the end of the
world with YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG by Ackk Studios and Ysbryd Games,
available 17th January 2019.

YIIK: A Postmodern RPG is a surreal Japanese-style RPG set in the late
'90s. After witnessing a woman vanish from an elevator with no plausible
explanation, college graduate Alex gathers friendly misfits from the
internet to investigate her disappearance. Alex's search for the truth
leads him and his companions into a journey rife with mystery and
danger... and who knows what lurks beyond the new millennium?

Traverse
dungeons bathed in puzzles and traps rendered in a dreamlike,
otherworldly graphic style that harkens back to the PSone era. Brandish
records, cameras, musical instruments and more to fend off living stop
signs and other bizarre monsters in a turn-based combat system that
blends in twitchy minigames.
