More On: Pikuniku

Devolver Digital and developer Sectordub have announced that Pikuniku, a self-described "vibrant adventure / deep state conspiracy game" is launching on Switch and PC on January 24th. You can pre-order the game here from the eShop, GOG or Steam and get 10% off before the release date. I've been playing the Steam version to review and it's...certainly something. As far as I can tell it's a Metroidvania-style platformer-adventure but the visuals and story are incredibly abstract and absurdist. Be sure to stay tuned for my full review; I already feel like Pikuniku is destined to be a cult classic.

CHARMING DYSTOPIAN ADVENTURE ‘PIKUNIKU’ ARRIVES JANUARY 24 
 
- Start a fun little revolution on Nintendo Switch and PC - 


London – Adorable developer Sectordub and crayon-wielding publisher Devolver Digital have announced that the vibrant adventure / deep state conspiracy game Pikuniku will launch January 24 on Nintendo Switch and PC for $12.99. Eager players with money burning a hole through their pocket can preorder now on Nintendo Switch in North and South America and on January 17 in the rest of the world to get 10% off [pikuniku.net].

Pikuniku is an absurdly wonderful puzzle-exploration game that takes place in a strange but playful world where not everything is as happy as it seems. Help peculiar characters overcome struggles, uncover a deep state conspiracy, and start a fun little revolution in this delightful dystopian adventure. Players can set off on a remarkable journey alone through a word full of memorable inhabitants with sometimes bizarre requests for help or pair up with a friend in cooperative levels custom designed for two players.

“While watching my mistress’s stepchildren play through Pikuniku, I realize this was a video game product that even an ultra-wealthy elitist like myself could enjoy,” noted Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.

Pikuniku will be playable at PAX South later this month at the Devolver Digital booth but you should have probably preordered it already so play some other games there.  Follow @PikunikuGame and visit pikuniku.net for more news and a conspiracy theories.
