YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG Relives the 90s in January A PlayStation Vita version is also set for sometime in 2019. 12.11.18 - 12:18 PM
The Kinda Funny Games Showcase brought us several interesting announcements in the indie world of gaming, including the release date for YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG.
Featuring music composed by Toby Fox (Undertale) and Hiroki Kikuta (Secret of Mana), YIIK is a trippy, JRPG-styled RPG that features over 30 hours of gameplay. The game drowns itself in '90s aesthetic, set during the height of the Y2K craze. Voice talents Chris Niosi (Tales of Zestiria, Disgaea 5), Clifford Chapin (Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Attack on Titan), and more bring the eccentric characters to life.
Ysbryd Games describes more about the plot 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.
A teaser trailer was also revealed:
YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG releases on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on January 17th, 2019. A PlayStation Vita version will release sometime in 2019.
