game release date for PC:
Highly Likely is a side-scrolling adventure game. The production is the debut project of the independent Mikola Games studio.
Highly Likely takes us on a trip to Ukraine, or more precisely, nearby the Polish border. The way in which the Ukrainians were presented was largely based on stereotypes, albeit in a light, humorous way.
The main character of the game is Mikola, who lives with his wife on a small farm. One day, his previously simple and orderly life begins to get very complicated. Fortunately, fate is gracious to him - when the protagonist finds an abandoned oil pipeline, he decides to use it without hesitation. This opens a new chapter in his life, full of funny but sometimes dangerous adventures.
The pillar of Highly Likely are the tasks pushing the plot forward. By completing them, Mikola acquires the resources necessary to solve environmental puzzles, which most often require the acquisition of a specific object or interaction with a particular element of the environment. More than twenty locations are waiting to be visited here - apart from the hero's farm, their list includes a village, a fair or even a forest path. The protagonist travels them both on foot and by various means of transport like bicycle, raft, car or even steam locomotive.
In the game there is a narrator who not only comments on our actions, but also tells us what the characters feel at the moment, and brings us closer to the content of our conversations.
The graphic design of Highly Likely presents itself pleasing to the eye mainly thanks to its original, cartoon-like style. The caricatured characters (with the main character looking like a stereotypical Cossack in the foreground) and the location projects attempting to reproduce the atmosphere of the Ukrainian province as faithfully as possible are particularly characteristic. It couldn't miss the catchy soundtrack played on traditional instruments.
