Evaluate: YIIK: A Postmodern RPG
YIIK: A Postmodern RPG is, because the title implies, a turn-based RPG that facilities round a gaggle of hipsters from the yr 1999. A variety of its presentation relies round a mix of 90s nostalgia and makes an attempt to subvert style conventions by subtly deviating from the norm in some pretty fascinating methods.
The star of the present is a whiny brat named Alex. He has just lately returned dwelling after ending faculty, and he is now residing along with his mom whereas he “tries” to discover a job. After following a cat into an deserted constructing, he meets a mysterious younger girl who is sort of instantly kidnapped by some creepy, hooded supernatural beings. From right here on out, Alex is obsessive about this girl and, with the assistance of some pleasant locals, spends the following 20 to 30 hours making an attempt to rescue her.
The setup is, deliberately, obscure however roughly serves its objective of getting issues going. Sadly, the primary character, Alex, is an unbearable jerk. From a story standpoint, his character works. From a participant perspective, it makes the expertise extremely torturous. Even after the closing credit, I fucking hated this man.
