Life in Willowdale: Farm Adventures features farming gameplay, a cozy town filled with friendly locals and adventures across the region. In addition to farming, the game will have social mechanics, combat, co-op play and much more to make for a family-friendly, engaging and fun experience.
Danger and adventure are always right around the corner in Willowdale. Fight fearsome foes such as the bewildered Outraged Ottis, secluded in The Forgotten Forest or Grumpy George in the Mighty Mountain. The town of Willowdale is surrounded by four Wilderness zones: Flower Fields, Forgotten Forest, Death Desert and the Mighty Mountain, where you can discover and defeat a big boss at the end of each zone.
In Life in Willowdale: Farm Adventures there are 12 BFF characters, each with their own unique ability, and you can take 2 with you when you venture out into the wilderness. So choose wisely! If you prefer to team up with your actual BFF for local co-op play, you can do that too, but only after completing the first five quests. By working together to take care of the crops, rear and care for the animals and going out scouting, you can bring Willowdale back into working order in no time flat!
Thunderful & Space Lizard Studios are delighted to announce that their mysterious cardboard cut-out thriller, Paper Cut Mansion, is set to be released on 27th October 2022 for PC, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions will follow soon after.
In Paper Cut Mansion you play as Toby, a police detective arriving at the road leading to the eponymous old mansion. You will need to put those detective skills to the test as you seek to unfold the story behind this ominous place, with each run giving you the opportunity to collect another piece of evidence to be tacked on the Evidence Board.
An intriguing cast of characters will be met along your journey through the mansion and may help or hinder you: some will offer you quests that can earn you helpful rewards, some will try to hide and some have more malicious intent toward you.
In each unique run, you will unlock new abilities and discover new equipment. This will offer you the opportunity of defining your own playstyle, in addition to giving you a better chance of overcoming the challenges each procedurally generated attempt throws your way. Intrigue is further added through a dimension-hopping mechanic that lets you leap between alternate versions of the same location that switch up the aesthetics and gameplay.
For those that haven’t had the chance to ever play Factorio on PC but have a Nintendo Switch, on October 28th you will have the chance to play a certain addictive game about building,as the name implies, a factory. Exactly how a game of this size and type will play on the Nintendo Switch remains to be seen,however if it runs well Switch owners are in for a treat.
The basic concept is as you crash on a planet your one goal is to build a space ship to escape. You do this by mining what you need to build up generators and such to build bigger and bigger machines and hopefully not get killed by the wildlife of the planet. The PC version is amazing, so check out the trailer below and consider checking out the Switch version. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
