Poi [official site] reminds me of every whimsical platformer I played in the 90s with its vibrant linear playground, shiny item scouring, atypically inspiring orchestral soundtrack, and droll and fluffy and oh-so-cute omnivorous mammal companions. When I asked news editor Alice if I could write about Poi today she said: “Sure, some people miss games like Bubsy”. I miss Bubsy. Poi’s out now on Steam Early Access. Nip inside for more details and a trailer.
