[Press Release] YIIK: Post-Modern RPG Now Launched on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Steam

Party like it's 1999.
SINGAPORE – Jan. 17, 2018 – YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG, the surreal Japanese-style RPG set at the end of last millennium from Ysbryd Games andAckk Studios, arrives on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC and Mac today. A PS Vita version will spin conspiracy theories later in 2019.
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: A Post-Modern RPG features more than 30 hours of content including a fully-voiced main story campaign with voice actors whose previous works include Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Tales of Zestiria, Disgaea 5, Attack on Titan and more. The simple textures and saturated color scheme enhance the supernatural quality of the environments and characters present in this insane adventure.
The soundtrack, featuring compositions from Undertale creator Toby Fox and Hiroki Kikuta of Secret of Mana, is as distinctive as the game itself, including an electroacoustic fusion of jazz, funk, traditional JRPG-style tunes and swing.
“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. Today it’s easy to find details on just about anything, but back in 1999, the internet offered up more questions than answers. YIIKexplores the what-could-be that existed before Snopes.” Andrew Allanson, founder and co-director, Ackk Studios.
YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam for $19.99 and supports English. Japanese and Simplified Chinese support will be added in Q1 2019.

Born in the heyday of mullets and the El Camino to a tech-foward family, Damien (a.k.a. Dame, PastorDame) quickly embraced the reality that “normal” is just a setting on a dryer. Damien is a pastor by trade and loves talking with anyone who is interested about life, God, and video games (in no particular order) - so, much so, that he and fellow MMORPG/GameSpace writer Matt Keith (Nexfury) create a podcast dedicated to that conversation. At the end of the day, Damien is a guy who loves his wife, his Mini Schnoodle, and crafting gourmet bowls of Mac N’ Cheese.
