The Pleasantly Perplexing Pikuniku Releases Jan. 24

Bright, bold, and bewildering, the petite Pikuniku is set for a brilliant release this month. Published by Devolver Digital and developed by Arnaud De Bock, Rémi Forcadell, Alan Zucconi, Calum Bowen, Pikuniku is a wildly anticipated puzzle exploration title that’s infectiously cheerful…on the surface.  Says Pikuniku of itself:

“Pikuniku is an absurdly wonderful puzzle-exploration game that takes place in a strange but playful world where not everything is as happy as it seems. Help peculiar characters overcome struggles, uncover a deep state conspiracy, and start a fun little revolution in this delightful dystopian adventure!”

Promising aggressive townsfolk and shadowy conspiracies, Pikuniku is a bizarre blend of the simple and the charming with the complex and the inane. We’re sold on the contagious music alone, to be frank. Pikuniku is set to release on Steam and Switch on January 24, per the recent announcement on its Twitter account.
