Hylics 2 is a total fever dream and I love it


The search for 2018's weirdest game is over

Hylics was the "trippiest RPG" I had ever seen as of 2015, but now it's time for a new king: Hylics 2!

Creator Mason Lindroth shared a video preview for the sequel earlier this week, and I'm delighted knowing that some of you will have never seen or heard of Hylics before, making this your first exposure to the series' wondrously strange aesthetic. Take a seat, clear the gunk out of your eyes, and behold.

Hylics 2 has the same off-kilter vibe, but its art, animation, and especially the world look more refined. I'll also never stop being amazed by all of those extravagant hand movements during battles.
