Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure Announcement Trailer
Snowcastle Games, creators of indie rpg Earthlock, have announced their newest game: Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure. Check out the announcement trailer below.
Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure has no release date yet. The game is currently in development. Its looking pretty good though.
According to a press release we received, the game takes “inspiration from titles like Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley”. It will have gathering and crafting, along with “perilous pirate camps” and ” the ability to enlist the unique talents of the island’s wildlife to help you out”.
Here’s more information on the game:
“Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure builds on the success of the Earthlock RPGs, taking the rich world-building and magical setting of the franchise into new territory. Set on a deserted island, the game tasks players with exploring its diverse and intriguing landscape as they collect resources for crafting and befriend wildlife to employ their unique abilities to progress to new areas of the island. They will discover ancient ruins from a bygone civilization, deal with treasure-hungry pirates, and unlock a host of different biomes, ranging from icy mountains and parched deserts, to dense jungles and humid swamps, as they uncover the secrets the island has to offer.
Players will also have the opportunity to make the island their own. An upgradable hamlet serves as a base of operations and unique placeable items allow you to customize the island to your liking.”
The game is planned for PC and console release. No specific consoles have been mentioned yet, but one would hope that it would come to the Nintendo Switch.
The first Earthlock is currently on the Switch and its pretty good (there’s a demo if you want to try it out). Snowcastle Games is also working on Earthlock 2 along with Ikonei.
