Play OverviewPlay Overview

Ynglet (2021) is an exploration game where you jump between bubbles that float in the sky making sounds as you interact with the doodled environment. Part platform game, part dynamic soundtrack, it's a game designed to let you flow through the world to discover intriguing new spaces and interactions.

It's designed to be accessible to people with different levels of skill. The level of challenge can be altered with fine-tuned difficulty settings. You can create restart points at any time, meaning you never have to lose progress if you die.

The sound of the game highly reacts to your presence and creates an ever-changing dynamic soundtrack. This is complemented by the illustrated art style depicting all manner of unusual creatures behaving independently, making the world feel alive.

The result is a meditative game experience that draws on classic titles like Flow and Electroplankton. If you are looking for a calming and engaging experience combining visuals and music then this is a great option.
