On show at PAX Prime this week is a playable build of Y2K, dubbed "a post-modern RPG." It's a surreal and funny take on Mother-style Japanese role-playing games
Set at the end of the 1990s, it's the story of a group of friends who travel around suburban America in an attempt to find an Internet starlet kidnapped by an elevator.
The game's main character is a hipster who does combat using vinyl records, while his associates use other personal items like a camera strap and a keytar. Combat is based around timing and visual puzzles. It's a good-looking game with plenty of jokes about modern life, as well as some highly surreal sections.
