Yoku's Island Express and Genesis: Alpha One to Have Physical Editions

By Andy Mills, 11 months ago
Continuing an already fruitful partnership that has seen physical versions of Overcooked and Yooka-Laylee, distributor Sold Out — who also recently announced they're working on boxed editions of MOTHERGUNSHIP — will be working with indie game publisher Team17 to make physical editions of two more titles: Yoku's Island Express and Genesis Alpha One.

Made in Stockholm, Sweden, by Villa Gorilla, Yoku's Island Express follows the adventure of Yoku the dung beetle as he travels across Mokumana Island. The twist is that the game is an "open world pinball platformer".

Genesis: Alpha One instead comes to us from Freiburg, Germany, with talent that's worked on Hitman: Blood Money, Spec Ops: The Line and more. This roguelike survival first-person shooter places the player as the captain of a starship, exploring a procedurally-generated universe whilst having to build and maintain a space station, farm resources and fight off aliens.

Both titles are currently scheduled to come to Xbox One, digitally and now physically in 2018.
