3D platformer Poi in the works for Wii U

Posted on June 9, 2015 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop

PolyKid has announced that its indie project known as “Poi” is bound for Wii U. The developer is taking inspiration from the likes of Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, and Super Mario Sunshine.

Poi is a 3D platformer that follows the journey of a rambunctious kid on an adventure to become a master explorer. Throughout their journey, players will run, jump, flip, slide, and swim to earn explorer medallions and uncover hidden secrets scattered across the world. The platformer features larger exploration-based levels and smaller, more intense platforming challenges.

Poi will be on Kickstarter in early July. A trailer will be shared sometime next month as well. You can view a set of screenshots in the gallery below, along with a teaser.

      Pre-alpha footage, Splatoon started out with black and white cubes so let’s just wait and see how this one turns out

    Am I the only one who while watching the footage, That felt like the game was not only taking some inspiration from the 3D Mario games, but also from those 3D Spongebob platformers from the sixth gen? (BFBB and The Spongebob movie game)

  • Annie

    Reminds me of ”A hat in time”, I like the ingenious platforming challenges, hopefully this turns out to be a solid game
