Take the farming and home adorning of Stardew Valley, the dungeon crawling of Minish Cap, and mix it with RPG deckbuilding fight in a beautifully-rendered top-down pixel world, and you’ve got Moonstone Island — a recreation that is in a short time shot up on our “ones to observe” listing.
You’re an alchemist-in-training, spending a yr within the wilderness to grasp your arcane strategies, and to determine methods to restore Moonstone Island, and the city, to their former glory. You journey round by balloon, broom, and glider to entry over 120 procedurally-generated sky islands, populated by monsters to battle and dungeons to discover. You’ll be able to even arrange your own home on any one of many islands, in any one of many biomes!
Moonstone Island has a ton of the options that farming sim lovers crave: You’ll be able to fall in love with locals, farm your individual land, beautify your little home, and craft a variety of recipes for potions that will help you out in your journey, or furnishings to adorn your own home.
The factor that units Moonstone Island aside from farm sims is its fight — it is possible for you to to befriend wild spirits to battle alongside you in card-based battles, and you may regulate the deck as you go, upgrading and optimising alongside the best way.
Moonstone Island hasn’t been confirmed for a specific launch date but, apart from “quickly” — however it’s deliberate for the Nintendo Swap!
You may also wishlist the sport on Steam (which helps the devs get higher visibility — and perhaps a writer!), and follow the game on Twitter for the newest updates.
