About YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG
YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG for PC, SWITCH and etc. is a surrealistic colourful jRPG set in the 1990’s. It was developed by the independent studio Ackk Studios, creators of games like Chromosphere: The Two Brothers and Two Brothers.
On April 1999, Sammy Pak enters an elevator to never return. It arrives empty on her floor. Soon after that, a video is uploaded online where it can bee seen what actually happened to Sammy – she was kidnapped by a supernatural force from another world. A group of eight friends saw that video. They decide to help the kidnapped woman and go on a surrealistic rescue mission full of dangers and dungeons.
Gameplay in YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG for PC, SWITCH and etc. is very similar to what other games of the genre present. Our party of eight moves around an isometric-presented map, every once in a while taking part in turn-based battles against our enemies. Despite being turn-based, combat is quite dynamic. In order to attack, we need to to take part in various mini-games that will test our reflexes and agility. The game also has some arcade elements outside combat.
Single player campaign will give us around twenty-five hours of gameplay.
YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG for PC, SWITCH and etc. uses Unity Engine. The game itself is quite colourful and the way it is rendered is rather different from what jRPG fans are used to see. Both character and the world are presented in a rather unique and unrealistic way. All dialogues in the game are voice acted.
