Toki Tori 2+ is a puzzle platformer from mostly-Indie developer Two Tribes. A sequel to a remake of a Game Boy Color game from 2001, it’s available as a downloadable title for the Wii U console, and off Steam for PC and Mac systems (Linux specs are listed, but apparently not supported). You can also pick it up on your iPhone. It’s regular price on Steam is $14.99, and I would assume the Wii U version is comparable. I was able to pick it up as part of a recent Humble Bundle and paid… significantly less.
In the game, you play as a yellow flightless birdlike blob that tries to sing and stomp its way home before its whole world rips apart. At least, that’s what I think is happening. It’s hard to say, because there’s not really any explanation for what’s going on. Along the way lots of other cute little creatures help and hinder your progress. The only reason I started playing it was because I thought it was something cute and easy Charlotte and I could run through.
Well… it starts out that way, anyway. Turns out, the game is actually a giant “Shut The Fuck Up” letter addressed to my entire whiny generation of aging gamers.
