Our videos of Yoku's Island Express

Our videos of Yoku's Island Express

Team 17 sent us a review code for Yoku's Island Express and we are allowed to share a few preview videos showing the very beginning of the adventure. Villa Gorilla's title is the improbable mix between a platformer and a pinball game in which exploration is key. The inclusion of Metroidvania elements is just as surprising but they make sense since the game is actually open world. With its cute art style and catchy soundtrack, Yoku's Island seems promising enough for us to propose a bunch of videos today. Let's hope it does not disappoint us by the time we complete it and the review embargo lifts, on May 29.

Been in love with this game ever since an EuroGamer preview and an Easy Allies preview made by Don Casanova, which really highlighted the game's features.

Thanks for making these videos and bringing it's release date to my attention, had forgotten it was about to be released. Will look forward to Gamersyde's review next week.

About the game

    nostradamus @Seth: that seems... tame? (2 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth Personally i'll recommend Dead Cells or Enter the Gungeon over a bottom tier rogielike with survival elements. (13 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth Below is really hardcore game. It makes you looking in the dark for your lantern each time you die by a trap that is impossible to see. Sometimes you lose like 20 mins until you find it. (13 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @b0vril: As much as i like Red Dead, R* made the pacing for this one too slow. Half the time it felt like i was playing a cinematic. Most side missions felt more interesting than the story. (16 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @toelessfoot: that's probably the best way to go. I didn't find the story or it's missions all that great. (20 Hours ago)

    Loakum Dance....Dance Electric. Listen 2 the rhythm of your soul... (22 Hours ago)

    nostradamus casul isn't something to be thrown around lightly. (1 Day ago)
