Embark on a reality-altering journey with recent college grad Alex and his friends in the spring of 1999. Embrace the unreal of dungeons dripping with intrigue and a turn-of-the-millennium world plagued by uncertainty and the supernatural. More than 20 hours of adventure await, scored with an electroacoustic fusion of jazz, funk, and gripping JRPG-style battle themes.
I actually played the original version of YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG and adored its insanity. The absurd quirkiness of the plot coupled with the over the top characters was brilliant. Even with the tech issues and one or two game-breaking bugs I found myself at the journey’s end and loved it. This is a journey for these devs and getting to see them achieve it is great.
