"Harvest Moon meets Pokemon meets Animal Crossing."

Ooblets

Double Fine Productions will publish Ooblets, “a game about farming, creatures, and adventure” from independent developer Glumberland, for Xbox One and PC, the developer announced.

Here’s an overview of the game, via its official website:

About

Ooblets is a currently-in-development creature collection and farming game. It’s sort of like Harvest Moon meets Pokémon meets Animal Crossing meets the weird awkward people we are.

Plant, water, and harvest crops, manage and expand your farm, collect all sorts of junk, make friends, and also make littler friends (ooblets).

Use the crops you grow to befriend, upgrade, and heal ooblets. Buy a little shop and sell your excess crops and junk to the townspeople.

Explore regions like the Mamoonia desert, the spooky Nullwhere, bustling Hubton, and more! Discover loads of ooblets and battle other trainers all over the place.

Key Features

  • Live a simple life working the land (and battling magical creatures).
  • You get a little house you can decorate and expand.
  • Play at your own pace. Leave the stresses of city living behind you.
  • Take part in a bustling little town full of characters.
  • Open world exploring.
  • Visit a variety of regions (one will be under water I think!).
  • Automate production with things like sprinklers.
  • Run a shop!
  • Upgrade your dudes because I guess they’re not good enough for you.
  • Maybe you will get to name your dudes too?
  • Join an Ooblet club. Feel wanted and appreciated. Distrust other clubs’ members.

Ooblets is due out in 2018.
