Indie studio Snowcastle Games has announced Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure for consoles and PC, due to whisk you away to its picturesque, eponymous island “soon”. Inspired by the likes of Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley, the game also promises “a unique take” on the genre, with adventure, mystery, and fun to be found.
During your time on Ikonei Island you'll gather resources and craft various items, visiting dangerous pirate encampments, while recruiting friendly wildlife to help you along the way. As the title suggests, the game is also tied to the Earthlock RPG series, which is set to receive a sequel.
As such, world-building and exploration will be front and centre, with ancient ruins to discover, across a range of biomes including icy mountains and scorched desert expanses, dense jungles, humid swamplands, and more. You'll also be able to upgrade and customise the hamlet that serves as your HQ, using unique placeable items.
Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure is coming to Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC. Check out the announcement trailer below.
