Yarny is a red yarn boy. He is on an important mission to retrieve all the memories that were lost by the old woman who owns his ball of yarn. He travels back to some dangerous places including acid pools and different seasons. Yarny is an innocent and clumsy little guy who can only go as far as his yarn allows. He can't swim or defend himself even if his yarn gives him many ways to move about. Electric circuits, ocean waves, crabs and crows that steal our buttons are just some of the obstacles you will encounter. Oh, and the team at Coldwood Studio made sure you will know how Yarny feels as he goes through different scenarios with his various reactions. Check out our podcast and review.
What is Clony? We asked that question in our Badland review as well. Clony is a black blob-like alien creature with wings. It can flap about through the maps and save as much of his clones while dodging obstacles. Clony has big eyes that peer out from his body. He can get smaller and more nimble and bigger and more clumsy but he is vulnerable to being squished and cut up.
Little Nightmares currently can only be seen in a trailer and web demo but it introduces the terrifying world Six lives within. She is a kidnapped little girl who tries to escape from The Maw, an underwater resort to the most elite. A tiny girl with a big yellow hood covering her head running through dangers, Six encounters a number of particularly creepy (and slightly silly) looking butchers. The web demo spares no expense in showing us that Six is vulnerable to our misjudged actions.
Yuffie is a Ninja and thief as well as a cocky, brash and occasionally aggressive tomboy who sees little issue with adding to her own legacy by bestowing titles such as “Great Ninja Yuffie” and “The Single White Rose of Wutai” upon herself. However despite the cute exterior and humorously giant shuriken she welds she comes with the highest luck stat as well as the most reliable ultimate weapon in the game with “Conformer”.It’s actually possible to go through the game without even recruiting Yuffie to your party seeing how like Vincent she has to be discovered and even then you have to ensure that you say the right things to have her join your party. She does however provide a number of alternative takes on key scenes throughout the game if she is present making her worth hunting down.
Chances are if you have been to any convention featuring cosplayers you will have encountered more than a couple of Vivi imitators as he remains of the few characters to break away from what has become of the more overlooked entries in the series. Despite looking like the fantasy world version of a Jawa, this little black Mage is only further added to by his clumsy and shy personality as he stumbles over his own words, while his lack of self conference also makes him reluctant to use his magic abilities but when he does he soon proves himself to be one of the key members of the group.
Merryn is the young heroine in this year’s Metroidvania-style indie game, Song of the Deep. She is only twelve years old and is thrusted upon with the mission to scour the deep, dark and dangerous sea in a search and rescue for her father. In an unimaginable way, she builds a little rickety submarine and dives underwater to explore and realize that the stories her father told her is coming true and the dangers are numerous. Merryn is not your typical heroine, in fact she is rather helpless but extremely determined. Check out our podcast review here.
Taking the place of her brother Tam Tam from the previous game and who here has been transformed into her pet chimpanzee Paku Paku making you wonder who at SNK loved repetition so much. Cham Cham would strangely make her debut the same year as fellow catgirl Felicia from Capcom’s “Darkstalkers."Armed with a giant boomerang she brings a youthful and playful energy to the game while at the same time quick to anger if she feels she is being insulted. At the same time unlike other catgirls she embraces her feline side as she walks on all fours, while taunting her opponents by meowing or scratching behind her ear with her foot. The fact that she can also use her Chimpanze to attack her opponent only adding to her charms.
