RKGK is an anime inspired graffiti action platformer coming out this year.


    Earlier this week at the Triple-i Initiative, Gearbox Publishing and developer Wabisabi Games unveiled RKGK. A game with eye-popping art direction that combines anime and graffiti art influences, this promising looking action platformer is coming this year.

    RKGK (pronounced “Rakugaki”) takes place in Cape City, a futuristic city that is under a vice grip by the oppressive B Corp led by the villainous Mr. Buff. The plot centers on rebel graffiti artist Wallah, who rages against the machine by using his art to bring life back to the city and inspire its citizens to stand up and rebel.

    Wallah moves around using her graffiti paint to stylishly grind on rails while chaining jumps, dashes and glides. He also seems to have his own drone to fly over the cityscape. Fast-paced platforming is the name of the game, and maintaining a state of smooth flow sends him into Defacer mode, turning the world into a dreamlike animated version of himself. While the trailer doesn’t show gameplay, it does show Vala spraying paint to destroy B-Cor’s robotic minions. You’ll also be able to create graffiti art using an array of paint and cosmetic tools. Check out the screenshots below for an in-game look at RKGK.

    RKGK is the first title from Wabisabi Games and looks to follow in the footsteps of the graffiti-soaked dystopian future of games like Jet Set Radio and Marc Ecko’s Getting Up (remember that?). It’s coming to PC later this year.
