The excellent new gaming site Piki geek recently published a preview of ilomilo XBLA. Oh joy!
“Southend Interactive’s forthcoming Xbox Live Arcade game, ilomilo, may be doing more for Swedish tourism than the Vasa museum.”

Another ilomilo article from Pax! This time from Kotaku.
“Giant Bomb’s Brad Shoemaker and I each took an Xbox 360 controller in hand at the Microsoft booth at PAX East and tried our best to understand Ilomilo, a puzzle game involving two characters who need to walk across tricky terrain in order to stand next to each other.”
Thunderbolt stumbled upon ilomilo at PAX and wrote a neat preview of it.
“Admittedly iloimilo was already somewhat on my radar before checking it out at PAX, but seeing it in motion really drew me into playing it. At this stage it’s beautiful, fun and remarkably intuitive to play, simply put, it was the most fun I had with a title at PAX this year. ilomilo drops into XBLA – as well as our hearts – later this year.”
“This gorgeous-looking puzzle game caught the eye of several bystanders while I sat by the kiosk, dragging them away from the more prominent Microsoft games so they can find out what the hell this adorable looking game is all about.”

“I feel I can predict with confidence that ilomilo is my PAX 2010 Game of Show. From what I was shown it’s got the gameplay, music, and style to be right up my alley.”
We are proud to announce that ilomilo will be released on Windows Phone 7 as a launchtitle. OMG!
Now you can carry ilomilo with you in your pocket and play it whenever you want to and wherever you want to, total rebel style! On the bus, on the train, in a spaceship or under the water (provided the phone will be waterproof of course, we don’t really know yet).
The game itself will be quite similar to ilomilo XBLA, but will feature new levels and even some exclusive content. Horray!
For today’s blogpost we have invited a special guest. Meet Sebastian, a gentleman with “a certain sense for style and fashion” who stars in ilomilo where he gives helpful hints to ilo and milo when he isn’t posing in front of the bathroom mirror or invent new words.
Hello Sebastian, glad to have you here with us. Why don’t you tell us a little about yourself?
Sebastian: Salutations! Who is this marvelous gentleman with an incredible sense for fashion that stands before you? Why it’s Sebastian of course! Listen well to my words and you will go far!
Right…is it true that you live inside a box, or rather a number of boxes that somehow exists in many locations at the same time?
Sebastian: It’s not a “box”, it’s my house! If someone is lost and needs my help, then I will arrive heroically from my house and help them, wherever they may be. It’s that simple. And in case you wonder, it’s actually a lot larger on the inside. How else would I be able to fit my increditastic collection of porcelain horses in there? Laws of physics and logic are such boring concepts anyway.
I’ve heard you know lots of good old stories. Could you tell us one?
Sebastian: I’m afraid I can’t. You see, I save all my good stories for the lost wanderers who find me at certain secret locations. If I was just telling stories all the time I wouldn’t have anything left to tell, now would I?
We couldn’t help but notice you came here on a flying creature. Does it have a name?
Sebastian: Ah yes! That is my majestic flying stallion who carries me around everywhere! A man of my status shouldn’t have to tire his feet by walking, now should he? He doesn’t really have a name, but I can summon him anytime by whistling three signals though my left nostril. I’m feeling a bit allergic today unfortunately, but I should be able to do it nevertheless. Want me to demonstrate?
Umm…perhaps later. Well, thank you for your time, we can’t wait to see you in the game.
