I don't think I have to work very hard to explain the appeal of KeyWe, a game where kiwis are controlled in a remote post office. As I have established, if your game stars a bird, I am already interested in it mail birds? Double sale.
At KeyWe, the kiwi birds are named Jeff and Debra (adorable!) And have a pretty hard job, running an entire post office alone. This job makes KeyWe a bit of a puzzle game, if you call Overcooked! a puzzle game: control the birds you have to jump through the post office, collect word scraps in letters to send by mail. This looks set to escalate rapidly, with complex word-carrying belts, storms, mosquito attacks and a restlessness. New Zealand seems strange.
"Our little heroes will face new challenges at every level and in every room in the post office, whether it's writing telegrams or packing mailboxes or helping an octopus sort the mail. "It's all a work day for Jeff and Debra," says developer Joel in the KeyWe segment during the E3 Future Games Show.
I’m still trying to wrap my head around the idea of a post office that uses both kiwis and octopuses, but it seems like a fun place. And Joel ends with a strong clasp: "You can dress your kiwis." I will, Joel. I will do.
As you may have guessed, KeyWe is a co-op game, so you’ll want to find a Jeff in your Debra before the game comes out on August 31st. You can get more information about it. and Steam.
