AckkStudios has been working for a while on their GameBoy-styled RPG, Two Brothers. Two Brothers, the story of an inventor seeking to bring color to a monochromatic world, is coming some time this year to the Wii U eShop, alongside iOS, Xbox 360, and several other platforms. Two Brothers is nearing completion, however, and as all developers do, AckkStudios is planning to begin work—or resume it, rather—on a brand new game codenamed Project Y2K. AckkStudios began work on the game before Two Brothers‘ development had even begun, and it was put on hold in order to finish the smaller, retro-styled project.
Project Y2K is a 3D RPG in development exclusively for the Wii U. The story, which has now been completely finalized, takes place in the year 1999, beginning on January first at exactly 12:02 AM. Project Y2K also has a completed graphics and gameplay engine, which you can get a glimpse of to the left, as well as plenty of concept art. In addition to all this information, the original blog post and its teasers contain hashtags such as “#Space,” “#Fourth Dimension,” “#Double Slit Experiment,” and “#WomanMadeofPlastic.” Another teaser also shows off a demo of the game’s soundtrack, with the caption, “viewing Earth from far away...”
I don’t know what exactly this is shaping up to be, but I know that like it. What do you think of all this?
