If you ever wondered what would happen if a pinball game was crossed with a 2d platformer, then Yoku’s Island Express is the game for you. The debut game from indie developer, Villa Gorilla, is brought to our attention today as they have released a new trailer that shows off some of the abilities and crazy antics that you’ll get up to in the game. Here’s the official description of the game as well as the new trailer –
Yoku’s Island Express is an open world/metroidvania-style pinball adventure, Seamlessly blending platform navigation with pinball mechanics across a large open world. Yoku the dung beetle sets foot on the beach of Mokumana Island, ready to take on the duties as the new postman. But the ancient island God is trapped in a restless sleep and the islanders are plagued by quakes and storms brought forth by its nightmares. Yoku’s Island Express is a unique and quirky adventure with handcrafted visuals, where you’ll soar through the air, vacuum explosive snails, fight a Screetch, feed starving lemurs, discover the mystery of the Fruit Altar, wake an old god, and hopefully help tiny Yoku rebuild the island post-office.
