ShackStream: Trek to Yomi indulges Indie-licious in the way of the blade

On today's Indie-licious, Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital invite us to cross swords in Kurosawa samurai cinema style with Trek to Yomi.


Here at Shacknews, we most definitely enjoy a good sword clash. We love ourselves some stellar samurai stories. Trek to Yomi seems to be a cornucopia of all that we crave and we’re going to indulge in this sword-fighting feast as we kick off another day of Indie-licious streaming.

Trek to Yomi comes to us from the folks at Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital. It tells the story of a young swordsman who makes a vow to his dying master to protect his village and the people he loves. Tragedy comes about and he must take up his sword against bandits and other warriors in a bloody path of battle. Presented in black-and-white samurai cinema style, players engage in intense sword fights and action platforming through the game’s gorgeous environments. It’s out now on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.

You can tune in as we play Trek to Yomi on this week’s Indie-licious, going live on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET. You can also watch below.
