    ABOUT Temple of Yog

    Released about one year ago, Temple of Yog picked up some steam from very credible places. Indiecade and Vice reported and featured the game.

    Check out the article Vice wrote back in January: 

    Got a Wii U? Love a Bit of Ritual Slaughter? ‘Temple of Yog’ Might Be the Game for You

    Temple of Yog was also the only selected Wii U title for IndiCade 2015
