Summary

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!

This didn't quite click for me like I thought it would. It's occasionally funny, but the humor often reads like a viral tweet from 2016. The art is a little too rudimentary and flat for me as well (but look at how good that cover art is). The puzzle and level design is questionable at times, but is usually followed up by something entertaining. It's not a particularly strong platformer, but it's at least a better adventure game. It's fun enough; I enjoyed kicking stuff around and wearing cool hats. I can totally see there being an audience that this really lands for—I just don't think I fall into that crowd.

Great short, comedic game. There's not much to the platforming, but that's kinda the point. This is a fantastic choice for playing on a lazy afternoon.
