The open world title focuses on resource gathering, expansion, and so much more.
During Nintendo’s indie showcase back in January (which also saw Chucklefish’s Wargroove dated), Humble Bundle showcased Forager. Developed by HopFrog, this 2D open title promises exploration, farming, and crafting with a twist. The developer has now confirmed when we’ll be able to play it – April 18th on PC for $19.99.
Check out the release date announcement trailer below, which highlights the game’s premise in a nice happy-go-lucky way. With an emphasis on setting your own goals, Forager is about collecting materials, crafting items, creating a base, and buying more land to keep expanding. Along the way, you’ll fight enemies, learn new skills, and unlock new blueprints.
There’s a whole lot more to the game, including taming animals, growing plants, building a trade empire, and much more. Four “old-school, Zelda-like” dungeons also await exploration. Forager will also be coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch “in a couple of months more” according to its developer. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
