Relax, Garden, and Help Villagers, Ghosts and Wild Animals
Aside from the alluring fact that you get to play this open-world adventure game as a red panda, Aka also has a giant capybara you can sleep on and baby dragons you can feed. Now that I have your attention, I’d like to point out that this story starts very much like Littlewood. War is over and as a retired soldier, it’s time for you to settle down on an island paradise.
The different environments you’ll get to explore range from maple tree forests inspired by Canadian landscapes, to tropical beaches inspired by South Asia and South America. The characters you meet can be villagers, monsters, animals, and even ghosts! Of course, due to the ravages of war, everyone will need your help to restore the local fauna and flora to its original glory.
The gardening in Aka puts an emphasis in permaculture whenever designing, cultivating, or crafting. When taking a break from your farmland, you can relax in the hot springs with monkeys, or play mini-games like sledding and trekking through mazes.
Coming Soon to PC and Switch
Aka is developed by Cosmo Gatto and published by NEOWIZ. It’s slated to release sometime in Q4 2022 on Steam here, and for the Nintendo Switch via the eShop.
The developers of Kitaria Fables have released an all new trailer for their game!
For those that may have missed it, Kitaria Fables is an absolutely stunning life sim/faming/RPG game with tons of features and content! This is one wonderful indie that I have personally been keeping a close eye on. And with the success of their recent Kickstarter, I can say for sure that is going to be on game that should be in everyones games library.
In this farming RPG, you jump into the role of a kitten that may appear absolutely adorable, but packs a bunch of powers that are needed to fulfill the many requests villagers may ask you to help them with; and who doesn’t love helping villagers?!
You find yourself in a village where you can also own your very own home. Whenever you hang out at your house you can customize the look and feel of your cat-tastic character. But the fun awaits when you leave your four walls. Villagers of all kinds are populating the cozy village around you.
Now, the developers have released an all new gameplay trailer for Kitaria Fables to give players a closer look at how all the mechanics of the game will function. The developers also announced that the game would be releasing on on September 2nd, instead of September 3rd.
