A fundamental aspect of human existence that can be transferred to the world of video games, and has been further developed with creature-collecting games such as Pokemon and Digimon, as well as other media.
However, if you’re looking for a relaxing adventure to go on with a cute puppy by your side, Hello Goodboy will be the game to satisfy your craving.
A Bandung-based developer, Rolling Glory Jam, is responsible for the game’s development. You may be familiar with them from Indonesian hits such as Rage in Peace and What Comes After.
And, like the latter, Hello Goodboy is an adventure game that takes place in the afterlife, with the player taking on the role of Iiko, who is accompanied by a canine companion named Coco, as well.
Iiko and Coco travel to the otherworld in search of a way to make amends for the mistakes of their past lives. Along the way, they assist the various inhabitants of this world that they encounter.
From lumberjacks to antler-adorned couples, the player will interact with a variety of characters and assist them in resolving whatever problems they may be experiencing in their subsequent lives.
Iiko will also have to solve puzzles throughout this adventure, which will be accomplished through the use of small minigames that will be encountered in a variety of different ways.
Combining this with Iiko’s proclivity for mending and Coco’s keen sense of smell, players will have to use all of their wits to make it to the conclusion of this adventure.
Because of its cartoony artstyle, this heartwarming adventure is sure to tug at our heartstrings. It reminds us of games like Spiritfarer, which we enjoyed when we were younger.
Hello Goodboy is scheduled for release in 2022 and can be pre-ordered on Steam.
