Forager is a 2D open world game inspired by exploration, farming and crafting games such as Stardew Valley, Terraria & Zelda. Gather, collect, and manage resources to craft items and structures.

Level up to learn new abilities, skills, and blueprints to help prepare for puzzles and dangerous dungeons.

Start small and improve your base, skills, equipment, network of friends (and enemies!) and build your future as you see fit! You can play Forager in a very varied array of playstyles...

Forager will be coming as digital download to PS4 and Nintendo Switch on July 30th, 2019, but is also coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4 retail with a special package including an exclusive poster and stickers.

Courtesy of distributor Nighthawk Interactive, the retail edition will be available in North America on Sept. 10 for $29.99 and in Europe on Sept. 13 with equivalent pricing. Pre-orders are available now through GameStop (Nintendo Switch, PS4), and coming soon to retailers including Amazon, Best Buy and Target.

Key Features:

  • Become an Adventurer – Withfour distinct old-school dungeons to raid, players can face mighty bosses solo or with the help of NPCs, and seek out puzzles and hidden treasure chests filled with blueprints and goodies. Leveling up to learn new skills and abilities and unlocking new weapon recipes will help the intrepid adventurer.
  • Become a Farmer – Players can cultivate vegetables, flowers, fruit, strange herbs and even rocks and minerals with the right tactics. Animals can become part of the family, too, as players pet, feed and take care of animals to win over their animals’ deepest loyalties through the Love System.
  • Become a Gatherer – All sorts of resources, consumables and materials are available for players to forage, fish, mine, hunt, dig and farm across various biomes. The rarest discoveries can be turned in at the local Museum to showcase and earn special rewards.
  • Become a Merchant – Forager is full of resources to exploit. Players can sell everything, buy more things, and then sell those things at a profit and manufacture an empire through trade and aggressive expansion.
  • Become a Builder – All the land is the player’s foundation, ripe for building and growing a base out of nothing. Players can purchase land to design and decorate whatever base fits their preference, whether that be a serene farm, industrial hub, defensive fortress, or cozy cottage.
  • Become… [fill in the blank] – The world of Forager is a playground for player’s choice. Anyone can set their own goals and work towards them.

Currently available for PC (Steam), Forager, rated E for Everyone, is coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4.
