An Early Look at Kalimba

Press Play’s Kalimba is set to release later this week and I’ll be streaming the game later today with Jeff. Join us today at 6:00 PM Eastern/3:00 PM Pacific for a chance to win a code for the game.

Kalimba is a puzzle platformer that has players controlling animated totems on a quest to overthrow an evil shaman and reclaim the island of Kalimba for the Kalimbi people. The distinct look comes from the “trixelated” art style that uses triangles as the main influence. In addition to the unique art style of the world, puzzles, enemies and totems, Kalimba also offers both single player and couch co-op modes.

Hope you enjoyed the stream. Here is the archive.
