3D Adventure Game Yami Promises to Shed Light Upon the Darkness

Published

Yami

Yami, a grim adventure game inspired by eastern fairytales, has found its way to Kickstarter.

Players take on the role of Little Shadow as they are tasked with saving the world from an ancient evil by traveling into the heart of a hidden kingdom. Darkness is never overwhelming though, as Tonbo, a sparrow spirit that helps guide Little Shadow, is always close by.

Developer Goldborough Studios describes the game as “beautifully dark” and promises to bring a story about friendship, wonder, love, and fear. Goldborough wants to communicate the idea that “even the smallest person can make a difference.” Alongside influence from Himalayan and Persian folk tales, the developer lists games like Inside and Little Nightmares as direct inspirations.

Along the journey, Yami will explore lost civilizations along with the remains of giant automatons that all have other residents; Great Spirits. These beings will grant Little Shadow new abilities and unlock the lore of the world.

There are a myriad of intricacies to the story Yami will tell, so be sure to check out more lore on the game’s Kickstarter page.

Yami is a non-combative 3D narrative adventure and is estimated to be a six to eight-hour experience with an approximate rating of 12+/Teen. Check out the game’s reveal trailer down below.
Goldborough plans to release the game for PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One, though PC is currently set as the baseline.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
