Kyle Thompson, the solo developer behind the beautiful, weird, and weird metroidvania Sheepois back with a brand new game for Nintendo Switch, PC and console called Small islandAnother hand-drawn metroidvania told us “what if Hollow Knight, but cats”.
You will play as Iko, a brave little mouse who uses his rickety old plane to explore the islands in the sky, long separated from the mainland after a long-forgotten disaster. , in the hope of trying to find a way to restore the world. Thompson considers the game “healthy”, thanks to its theme of making connections with others and rebuilding new worlds.
However, an army of bosses will be there to stop you, and you’ll need to find and master unique abilities to counter them. Ordinary metroidvania stuff – nothing wrong with that, mind you – but look how beautiful it is!
You won’t have to wait long until you can get your little glove on this one, as Islets launches on Switch, PC, and all current and latest-generation Xboxes on August 24, 2022.
