Indie developer Villa Gorilla and writer Team17 first unveiled Yoku’s Island Express, which intriguingly mixes elements of the two platformers and pinball, nearly a year ago.
This news comes with a new behind the scenes video where the developers of Yoku’s Island Express discuss the first phases of this game’s development before delving into its story premise and gameplay mechanics. For those of you who don’t know, Yoku’s Island Express follows the narrative of the titular dung beetle Yoku, who arrives at Mokumana Island to become its new postmaster, only to get the island in disarray because of restless early deity.
To assist this deity, Yoku journeys across the island, however, does so with exceptional pinball-platforming mechanics. Players command both Yoku and also the flippers on the island, and have to control them in order to find and explore new areas. If you’d like learn more about the game, you check out preceding trailers on the power-ups along with enemies.
