YIIK A Postmodern RPG is an indie role-playing video game developed by Ackk Studios. It was released on January 17, 2019 and received below-average reviews. However, it is definitely worth a try if you’re into modern, postmodern games. This review will focus on the game’s gameplay, its storyline, and its art. The game is a fantastic experience for gamers of all ages and will keep you engaged for hours.
Although there is some great stuff in YIIK A Postmodern RPG, the game fails to deliver on several fronts. While it has one outstanding dungeon and a few notable moments, this is ultimately a game with bad execution. The game has many faults, which make it difficult to recommend to anyone unless you’re willing to sit through 25 hours of drudgery.
One of the biggest problems with YIIK A Postmodern RPG is its lack of a strong narrative. While some independent developers may claim their games are Postmodern, they merely lean toward surreal angles without going any further. YIIK, however, takes the Postmodern concept a step further, letting it seep into all aspects of the game, from the plot to how characters interact with each other.
YIIK A Postmodern RPG attempts to create a postmodern fantasy world by introducing the concept of a «Soul Survivor», or a being that has given up physical form. These souls live in Soul Space, a place in between the different realities, where they are housed. As a player, you must solve these puzzles to save the girl from oblivion.
The game’s world is beautiful, with a retro style applied to each map. Music is consistently great, as well, with Toby Fox, creator of the popular Undertale video game, contributing to the music production. Although the game features a lighthearted tone and a lighthearted atmosphere, it is also disturbing and evocative of the ’90s. It has a unique style and an incredible soundtrack.
While YIIK A Postmodern RPG is not a great game, its positive points are outweighed by its flaws. The dialogue is often poorly crafted and the social commentary is unnecessary. The game’s social commentary is also poorly executed. The gameplay is not great, but it’s worth playing at least once to get the full experience. It’s a fun and engrossing game, but it’s not a perfect experience for everyone.
YIIK isn’t particularly good at communicating information to the player. The player must learn about damage values manually and their character stats. Character leveling doesn’t make much sense. The EXP gained from battles makes no sense. Sometimes, bosses give less than random fights. Sometimes, you must win a fight. But the good news is that most battle music is excellent, and it fits well with the game’s cartoon art style.
The dialogue isn’t the best in the genre. The protagonist, Alex, is a egotistical creep who acts like a misunderstood genius. Unfortunately, YIIK’s writer wanted to make a game about a flawed character, but the result is not as good. Despite the positives, the game’s ending is awful and will leave you wishing for more.
