It’s been a long journey for developer Ackk Studios, but they’re finally nearing the release of YIIK: A Postmodern RPG. Inspired by the canceled EarthBound 64 project, YIIK is a sci-fi adventure that explores themes of nihilism, growing up, and the supernatural. We first got our hands on it nearly three years ago, and after a lengthy retooling process, Ackk Studios has revealed that it’s coming out next month.
During the recent Kinda Funny Games Showcase, a new trailer dropped revealing a release date of January 17th, 2019. You can pick up YIIK on Switch, PlayStation 4, or Steam, and it’s currently available to pre-order on Switch eShop. If you’re not sold yet, you can check out the new release trailer and 30 minutes of gameplay by clicking below.
