Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition

Chibig have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition, a reimagining of Deiland (a farming adventure game). This version of the game features all new looks, new music, new playability, and exclusive DLC content, not to mention a new seasons system.

In order to bring Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition to the Nintendo Switch, Chibig have launched a Kickstarter campaign, with $11 791 as the base goal (as of writing, $3 573 have already been pledged). Click here to check out the Kickstarter page!

Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of new features, and some screenshots:

Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition is a farming adventure where you will have to take care of your tiny planet. Farm, craft, fight and explore the universe of Deiland in this adventure with exclusive content for Nintendo Switch.

Discover the story of Arco in this single-player experience, a tale about growing up, helping others and revealing the secrets that lie on the heart of your planet. We’ve crafted a relaxing game, with a strong narrative and a cast of diverse characters for you to meet. 

The game draws inspiration from other great titles like Harvest Moon and Stardew Valley. As you can imagine already, it’s heavily inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novella “The Little Prince”. 

  • Season System: With Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, the whole game changes.
  • New content, recipes, structures and crops.
  • All DLCs already launched on PC, for the first time on a console for free.
  • Graphics and gameplay improvements.
  • New music themes, exclusive for the Pocket Planet Edition.

Source of Madness

Here’s the latest trailer for Source of Madness, along with some details:

Source of Madness is a dark action rouge-lite game, developed by Swedish studio Carry Castle. The developers have an avid interest in incorporating new technologies to influence creativity and bring something fresh and exciting to their games. For instance, applying machine-learning to conjure some truly weird and grotesque creatures. Another, is the use of AI-technology to bring life, natural movement and decisions to the monster to constantly challenge the player in this ever-changing world.

In Source of Madness you start as a newly initiated Acolyte who uses magic to battle against a physics-rigged world and it’s hordes of procedurally-generated monsters.
