Indie studio Zoink Games knows their way around an eerie game. After all, they have a catalogue that includes work on titles like Flipping Death and Zombie Vikings. Today, they got a moment in the spotlight during an indie showcase on EA Play Live 2020, and it looks like they’re ready to continue that spooky and quirky pedigree with a new upcoming adventure called Lost in Random.
Zoink Games introduced Lost in Random during the EA Play Live 2020 presentation on June 18. Zoink Games CEO and Co-Director Klaus Lyngeled and Co-Director (and wielder of the most powerful Viking braid in gaming for 2020 so far) Olaf Redmalm took the opportunity to invite players into the Kingdom of Random. In Random, every single aspect of its inhabitants’ lives is decided by a dark force that fears and thwarts all chaos and uncertainty. Players will take on the role of a young girl named Even and her sentient dice companion Dicey as they embark on a journey to break the hold of that force on the world of Random. You can check out the trailer for Lost in Random just below.
Zoink Games always brings an interesting visual flair to their games that has given them a distinct aesthetic. Fe back in 2018 wasn’t the best game, but it most certainly had that distinct color and style, and Flipping Death was an altogether amusing jumping back and forth between the worlds of the living and dead as players helped ghosts find closure with the waking world. Lost in Random still has a bit to prove in its seeming action platform style, but it looks like Zoink is once again leaning strongly into the solid macabre quirk they’re good at.
Lost in Random is currently slated for launch sometime in 2021. Stay tuned to Shacknews as we keep an eye out for further information and details on this upcoming indie from EA.

from the clips i saw during the stream, the art looks amazing, but the gameplay and story are big questions marks
