Islets is a lush metroidvania starring Iko, an aspiring warrior who sets out to explore a world filled with scattered floating islands.

Take to the sky and reunite a fragmented world in this surprisingly wholesome metroidvania! Help Iko adventure across beautiful hand-painted islands, receive letters from a quirky cast of characters, and face powerful monstrous adversaries.

Iko is an aspiring yet hopeful warrior exploring the land and sky to reunite a series of floating islands. With his rickety airship, he must travel from island to island in order to reignite each one’s magnetic core while fighting off the many adversaries standing in his way.

Islets is a surprisingly wholesome metroidvania about making connections with the people around you. By reuniting the islands and befriending a cast of charming characters, the world expands and reveals new parts of each area for Iko to explore. Scour every nook and cranny in order to collect the many upgrades hidden around this world and face its numerous hidden challenges!

In Islets, players will need to master a selection of unique special abilities and harness quick reflexes in order to put a stop to the creeping evil that has fractured the world.

There’s also a tour guide to show you around, but you should be careful. The guy’s got some really weird vibes...

"I'm so excited for Islets to finally be released after two years of development! I set out to create a charming world full of secrets and strange characters and I can't wait for people to finally meet them," said developer Kyle Thompson
