Epic's New Freebie Is a Pinball Themed Metroidvania

This week, Epic Games Store is giving away platforming pinball adventure video game Yoku's Island Express.

Developed by Villa Gorilla, players will assume the role of a dung beetle called Yoku, who becomes a postmaster as he arrives at the island of Mokumana. While most platforming games allow players to jump up and down, players will only be able to move left and right in Yoku's Island Express. However, players can control pinball paddles to push the ball attached to Yoku.

The game received an 82 score on Metacritic. It was nominated in multiple categories at several award ceremonies and won the Best Debut game award at the 15th British Academy Games Awards.

Yoku's Island Express can be claimed here.
