Open beta for adventure inspired by Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley starts June 17th, 2022!
In a new trailer that debuted today at Guerrilla Collective, independent developer Snowcastle Games revealed that its upcoming adventure about crafting, thwarting pirates, and befriending animals, Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure, is coming to Steam Early Access later this Summer and launching in open beta on Steam on June 17th, 2022. Details about the Early Access release date and the roadmap towards a full PC, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One release will be revealed in the near future.
Taking inspiration from titles like Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley, Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure adds to compelling exploration, resource gathering, crafting, and customization systems with a host of fun gameplay ideas that give this colorful title its own twist. Befriending local wildlife and using their unique abilities to help you access new areas of the island offers a compelling exploration mechanic, unlike anything you’ve seen in the genre before. Expect to encounter perilous pirate camps and battle monsters as you uncover Ikonei Island’s secrets. Perhaps most importantly, look forward to doing all this with your friends! Multiplayer is one of the key features that Snowcastle will add to the game as it builds out the title’s features during Early Access.
Alongside the game’s satisfying crafting systems, farming, combat, and everything else Ikonei Island has to offer, players will 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. That extends to your home, which can be decorated to your own tastes!
