YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG Mystifies Switch, PS4, Steam Today

Jan 17, 2019 by

YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG, the surreal Japanese-style RPG set at the end of last millennium from Ysbryd Games and Ackk Studios, arrives on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC and Mac today.

It’s spring of ‘99 and Alex just returned home from college as a graduate. When a cat steals his grocery list, it starts him on the longest and weirdest journey of his life: women vanishing from elevators, beings made of light, and enemies ranging from smiley faces on springs to giant pandas armed to the teeth are just a few of the unusual things he encounters on his quest.

Join Alex and friends as they explore surreal dungeons filled with puzzles and traps, crash evil parties, peel back the layers of conspiracy and engage in combat based on minigames.

YIIK is an eclectic mix of ideas and crazy audiovisual stimulation inspired by a time when the internet was new and people were only just learning about the strangeness of the world around them,” said Andrew Allanson, founder and co-director, Ackk Studios. “Today it’s easy to find details on just about anything, but back in 1999, the internet offered up more questions than answers. YIIK explores the what-could-be that existed before Snopes.”

YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam for $19.99.
