Playing out like an interactive episode of Don't Hug Me I'm Scared, Pikuniku is a perfectly formed three hour adventure.

A wonderfully absurd tale of insurrection and kicking stuff in a cheery-looking world.

A short, funny platforming adventure about a weird little dude on a strange quest, Pikuniku is a charming delight.

It may not be long but you’ll have a big, dumb smile on your face the whole time; a pure realization of quality over quantity.

In the wrong hands, Pikuniku could have been a shallow and ultimately forgettable experience, but its expressive dialogue, clever framing, and charming, upbeat soundtrack do enough heavy lifting to elevate it into something far more endearing. The characterization, in particular, is delightfully fleshed out. It's a simple game with a ton of heart that'll leave you beaming when everything's said and done.

My favorite gaming experiences are the ones that elicit a pure and physical response from me. Whether it's a horror game making me clench my cheeks or a story-driven game dropping my jaw and pulling a tear from my eye, those kinds of experiences are the ones that stick with me the most. With Pikuniku, I was smiling and laughing throughout the entire thing, and too few games get that kind of response out of me. Pikuniku is a treasure of a game, and I can't wait to see more from this team.

Its look and feel gives it a charming aesthetic that draws you in, and its solid controls coupled with balanced puzzles makes you stay a while. A funny campaign that has some true laugh out loud moments, but sometimes has vague mission objectives forcing you to wander around aimlessly until you stumble upon the next step.

Pikuniku is quirky, funny and more than a little bit mad, all adding up to a short-but-sweet, colourful platform adventure.

Despite being rather short, Pikuniku is sure to please players anyway thanks to its pleasant presentation, relaxed atmosphere, goofy characters, and its world that's just plain fun to explore.

This puzzle-platformer's puzzles and platforming might be merely alright – and the music is a proper irritant – but Pikuniku is full of so much cheer and loveliness elsewhere. It's bursting with character in a story that's equal parts silly and uplifting.

What a really pleasant time this is. It’s family-friendly, without being a kids’ game.

Still, developer Sectordub have created a delightfully quirky experience with bags of personality. It might not last very long, but Pikuniku manages to deliver a lot of fun little moments before you see the end screen.

Are you in the mood for an absurdist yet cheerful adventure-platformer about corporate sabotage? Pikuniku just might be your game.

Pikuniku is definitely a bit of an odd title. It’s a little shorter than I was hoping, but across the entirety of the game I was never really uninterested or bored, I actually really enjoyed my time with it. If I had to say though, I feel like there could have been a little more effort put into really branching out with some of the mechanics, but I’m not disappointed with the game by any means, I just found myself left wanting more.

A charming little adventure with a good heart, a quirky atmosphere and a fascinating tone. Pros and cons can for once essentially be the same: some will be delighted by the randomness and the utter simplicity of the whole experience, while others might find it a bit too much.

This game belongs in the same breath as Undertale and Night in the Woods for the way it plays with its own video game-ness. Pikuniku bashes tropes, breaks the rules, and defies any possible expectations you could have.

Despite its childish look, Pikuniku tells us a revolutionary tale of a random guy joining a resistance group fighting against an evil corporation. Funny until the end, Devolver's new game may mostly count on its strange physics, even to the point of frustration when the game asks for strong platformer parts. The two-player mode might balance a very short length though.

Pikuniku is a hilarious game that's oozing with charm. Its single player campaign is full of moments that make you feel like a kid again, and its co-op mode is surprisingly relaxing. Unfortunately its charm is let down by a clumsy control scheme that doesn't always mesh with some of the mechanics, and this can create an experience that ultimately feels unrewarding.

Pikuniku is simple, silly, and ultimately kind of pointless. That being said, if you're looking for a short, feel-good experience, it might be up your alley.

Its absurdity, alongside occasional quips do end up pulling their weight, but it's not enough to save Piku's journey from being inoffensive and simply forgettable.
