Hitcents and HardBoiled Studios have shared a new trailer for YOLKED: The Egg Game, which will release on Nintendo Switch later this year.
Created with “mind-numbing controls” and “frustrating, yet addictive, gameplay,” you will set out on an “unforgiving and intense journey” as an egg with human arms that must escape a house whilst a man attempts to stop it.
Challenged to avoid enemies and overcome obstacles to secure your freedom, you can collect new costumes to wear on your journey while ultimately having the chance to discover the story behind the egg’s creator.
The publisher has outlined the game’s features, which include:
- Wall-climbing physics: Grip, grab, mantle, swing, and fling your fragile friend through stages as you traverse the environment. Common household items come to life with a mind of their own – often will ill-intentions. Cautiously plot your ascent up and out of the house or throw all caution to the wind, wind-up, and fling yourself with blind, reckless abandon for laughs!
- Alternate routes for crazy collectibles: You may spot floating items from time-to-time, necessitating you to improvise on the fly and swing to some hard-to-reach places!
- Get Back Into the Action: No punitive wait times if you fail! If you crack and burn, you’ll immediately respawn at the last egg dish checkpoint you swung past. If you’re not happy with how things are going you can even self-destruct with the press of a button — practice makes perfect!
- Fiendishly Fun Vibes: Yolked features a cartoony, vibrant aesthetic and bouncing soundtrack with a dash of dynamic danger.
YOLKED: The Egg Game will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2023.
