Lots of game developers have thrown around descriptions like "open world" and "metroidvania," but it's rare to see them attached to "pinball mechanics." And yet, that's exactly what you'll see if you read a description of Villa Gorilla's upcoming adventure, Yoku's Island Express.
There are some other unlikely references, as well. It turns out that the game blends all sorts of interesting ideas.
"Yoku's Island Express is inspired by the joy of exploration of a young child, having just found the entrance to a secret garden, or unlocked the door to an attic full of wonderful and interesting things to discover," notes the developer. "It takes some of its direction from Studio Ghibli films, where nature is infused with spirit and life, but combined with a strong focus on painterly, hand-made visuals where all the locations are unique and hand-made."
