Devolver Digital delivers another off-the-wall title.
It looks a bit weird, its brightly coloured and apparently its super inventive, Pikuniku has garnered the usual level of attention that Devolver titles get, and it’s out today on Nintendo Switch and PC.
As the game’s potato-with-legs character players must navigate absurd puzzles, even absurder environments and the colourful cast of people they meet along the way. Help these characters overcome their personal struggles and uncover the seedy conspiracy that lies at the root of the seemingly cheerful world. It’s a dystopian adventure with plenty of platforms to get around.
According to Steam key features include:
- A vibrant adventure for all: Explore a colorful world at your own pace, help quirky characters with their unusual requests, and solve clever puzzles that will challenge players of all levels with a 4 – 5 hour campaign.
- Charming cast: Meet a cast of memorable characters on your journey, each with their own problems and eccentricities to accommodate along the way.
- Cooperative mode: Join up with family and friends for local multiplayer fun in custom cooperative levels and challenges.
When we reviewed Pikuniku we found it just about as fun as it sounds, although perhaps a little on the short side. To find out more check out the game on Steam, where it is available on PC and Nintendo Switch from today.
