Topic Of The Show:

Trek To Yomi Review Discussion

Trek To Yomi is Devolver Digital’s new 2D side-scroller set in a fictionalized, black and white depiction of Japan’s Edo period. Inspired by the works of Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa, the game has a very compelling art direction. Unfortunately, other aspects of the game – especially combat and narrative design – are below average. Jill Grodt and Alex Van Aken share their review impressions of this anticipated indie.
