Fumiko is an AI, one who has escaped her boundaries to find herself in the digital world of a network in Fumiko!. Now freed, she'll platform, dash, and leap through these low-poly lands, protecting people in social hubs from strange, unknown threats that look to harm them and slow her growing strength.
Fumiko!'s digital landscapes are expansive, so you're equally mobile to be able to comb these places with ease. Super high jumps and dashes will help you get through these worlds, and all while taking in the colorful places that exist within the network. As you progress further into these places and help the beings you find, you'll gain new powers that will have surreal effects in these places.
Fumiko! is a soothing experience, savoring in the joy of exploration and the thrill of being able to leap so high you feel like you're flying. Being able to do so in landscapes that cast off the rules of reality just makes wandering even better, offering endless vistas and environmental surprises as you cross the network. Helping Fumiko get power is all well and good, but I'm just happy to find myself lost in this alternate world.
Fumiko! is available for $12.99 on Itch.io and Steam. For more information on the game and developer Fumiko Game Studio, you can head to the game's site or follow them on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
