Haiku, the Robot, has a playable demo over at Gamejolt and their Kickstarter page.
The game is set to fully release in October 2021 and is developed by a solo indie dev under Mister Morris Game studio.
Mister Morris Games is a small indie game studio based in Tallinn, Estonia. Their mission is to build adorable worlds for you to explore.
Haiku, the Robot is a 2D Metroidvania set in a land full of adorable-yet-discomforting robots, hidden secrets, and evil, virus-infected machines.
Haiku wakes up in a post-apocalyptic world where humans no longer exist. After the extinction of the human race, machines were the only intelligent beings left to inhabit the planet.
Four artificial intelligent beings soon evolved and developed a world of order and stability. Programs and machines lived in peace for many years, until the virus spread. It corrupted the programs first, then after, the machines.
The machines could not function without the correct programs and so the world began to break down. It’s up to Haiku to restore order!
Dash, slash, and grapple your way through a post-apocalyptic world full of different enemies, bosses, and surroundings.
The game features beautiful and atmospheric 8-bit pixel art. Everything is drawn by hand and animated frame-by-frame to achieve that retro, Metroidvania look.
There are no settings and/or accessibility settings in the DEMO at the moment and not stated on what settings are going to be used.
The game will have Steam achievements, you can wishlist it here and see when it releases, what achievements the game will hold over at Haiku, the Robot on Steam.
