2D Platformer Kiopioke! Launching July 18

The team at HardieSoftworks announced that their quirky 2D puzzle platformer Kiopioke! is set to take flight when it launches on July 18.

Although the protagonist of Kiopioke has a broken wing, this little bird has grand dreams to soar through the skies once again.

To reach their goal, players will set out to poke walls, build tension, and launch into the air to soar through the skies of each stage. With this mechanic in place, every wall, ledge, and obstacle must be factored into play.

Rounding things out in Kiopioke! is an original soundtrack that is paired retro graphics, giving players the chance to interact with environmental mechanics like moving platforms, springs, wind, switches, keys, and electricity.
