Here is the adorable metroidvania Haiku, the Robot

A little robot lost in a big world of robots, that’s pretty much the plot of Haiku the Robot, a newly released indie with a big heart. Jumping, dodging, blinking and zooming through a rusty world of robots, Haiku is a side-scrolling action game with a progression system similar to games like Hollow Knight.

As you explore, you meet strange new characters and learn more about their world. Things like a sentient subway train, for example, or a guy who looks like a garbage can.

There’s also the kind of crisp, satisfying combat and platforming you want in this type of game. You can further customize your character with tokens that alter their powers and upgrade them to reach new areas and find secrets. It’s all tied up with nice GBA-style graphics and lovely chunky pixels, complemented with more modern-style animation.

All of which is to say that the explosive growth of the modern action-exploration-adventure game, or metroidvania, or whatever, continues apace. You can find Haiku the Robot on Steamor check out its creator’s website: mystermorris.games.
