Wow, I forgot to post a comment on this game, and now I’m sitting here looking back on this nine-month-old game and seeing how Pikopik is still inactive on Itch, and makes me sad that they don’t really upload more demos. I guess based on their dying Twitter account, they must be tremendously busy.
The demo itself is what you would expect a demo to be: functional, some frustrations, works well enough, though is nowhere near the quality of a full polished game. It did have some neat movement and weaponry ideas with the different guns, and the engine does look like a neat proof-of-concept, though its main draw remains its cutesy cel-shaded art style, and that’s partially why I’m disappointed to see Pikopik vanish off the Earth.
For what it’s worth, old review on Kratzen (two stars), and I really do hope to see more from the developers of this demo coming up.
