Update (2 June 2019): The final levels promised at the end of Fingerlab’s excellent little 2D platormer have arrived. The conclusion of Yuri’s story can now be enjoyed courtesy of a free update this week which added 16 new levels. Happy days.

“Thanks for your patience,” Fingerlab writes in its patch notes. “It took awhile, but we needed the time to create a completely new environment: Yuri’s mysterious house, full of surprises and challenges.”

Fingerlab has also “reworked some levels and remastered the soundtrack” in order to give players an “even more immersive experience.”

Just in time for the weekend too.

Original Story: French studio Fingerlab have been bringing the touchscreens of our iPhones and iPads to life in innovative ways for years. Games such as Multiponk, Albert (which is also available on Apple TV), and Atom Run, mix creativity with interaction, resulting in a diverse range of experiences that share a bond of warmth and joy.

It’s not surprising that Fingerlab make tools for creatives as well as games: Apps for making music such DM1, DFX, and Rockmate; tools for filmography such as iMotion; and even Musyc – an app that uniquely blends visual and aural exploration.

Yuri is yet another example of the studio’s penchant for fusing art and gameplay, conjuring a 2D action platformer that ranges from fast and furious, to whimsical dreamscape.
