Headed to PAX East next week? If yes, you might want to drop by the Ysbryd Games booth (located at #19115), if you’re interested in trying out YIIK that is! The YIIK Episode: Cape Juno demo (a custom demo made for PAX East, to avoid spoiling the actual game!) will be playable there. It’s a side story that fits somewhere around the 2nd chapter, and hints at the overall themes of the game. It featues a neww party member: Wilfrid.

This demo is set in the port town of Cape Juno, NJ. Alex is investigating an ONISM 1999 post about a mother of 10 who has mysteriously vanished after announcing to her family that she is expecting her 11th child.
