Palia is a community simulation massively multiplayer online game where players can build a home and life, meet and befriend a compelling cast of characters, and experience an evolving narrative with other players.

Palia is set in a high fantasy world with robust online multiplayer features and a 3rd person perspective that adds a new layer of depth to the sim genre, giving players a deep community experience in a vibrant living world. As players explore this new world full of wonder, they decide how they fit in, what they want to do and how they want to play.

In Palia, humans are the legendary race, having disappeared thousands of years ago at the height of their grandeur and mastery of magic. Nobody in modern times knows why. Players awaken as human characters without explanation in a quaint, lakeside village where they’ll make their home and forge a new future for themselves and humanity. Together with a massive online community, players will uncover the secrets to humanity's past through an evolving narrative that will take years to fully unveil. Palia is a gorgeous, cozy world that’s constantly evolving and features deep customization systems, a compelling cast of non-playable characters, and a massive online community of other players to share and explore it with.

Palia is a gorgeous, cozy world that’s constantly evolving and features deep customization systems, a compelling cast of non-playable characters, and a robust Neighborhood system that allows players to forge communities of their own. Combining the welcoming atmosphere of a community sim with a massively multiplayer online experience, the game gives players the chance to be part of a global community of gamers as they collaborate, explore and progress. Palia’s innovative social matchmaking system ensures that friends and neighbors can always be close by.

Palia also offers a robust set of character creation options that allow players to show off their unique style and creativity. This includes a diverse set of face and skin tone options, hairstyles that can go on any character, and a flexible fashion system. Players can mix and match different components, customize colors and patterns, and save their favorite outfits. So whether they want to be an award winning cook, or the best gardener in the world, it’s all up to them. New features will be continually added to expand player’s options.

Developer Singularity 6 announced that Palia will launch on Nintendo Switch for free this holiday season.

Players interested in living their coziest Palian lives with friends on Nintendo Switch are encouraged to wishlist Palia on the eShop.

Players that want a chance to participate in Palia’s upcoming Stress Test on PC scheduled for 2 p.m. PT to 6 p.m. PT on Thursday, July 6 are encouraged to sign up here.

Key Features:

  • Create Your Own Aesthetic – Create a character that is truly your own using Palia’s facial and avatar customization options. A healthy mix of free and premium in-game clothing options gives players a robust assortment of style choices to fit the player’s vibe, whether they feel like adventuring, or just kicking back with friends.
  • Persistent Online Multiplayer – Palia is a cozy MMO. Players can hop into Palia's evolving world and adventure with friends anytime, and no two gameplay sessions will be alike.
  • Evolving World Story – Players can expect hours of gameplay in Palia’s main storyline, but players can also explore Palia’s whimsical multiplayer open world and create a story all their own. Players can also expect frequent storyline updates, in-game events, and more for years post-launch.
  • Eclectic Villagers and Quests – The Villagers of Palia’s world are designed for depth and feature complex, interconnected stories that tie into the game’s evolving world story. Players can develop meaningful friendships and receive impactful mainline and side quests from Palia’s diverse cast of characters. Love might even be in the air for players interested in romancing select Villagers.
  • Engaging Skills, Gathering, and Crafting – Players will need materials to build the in-game life and home of their dreams, as well as create giftable items for their favorite Villagers. Players can gather and craft these items by using, refining, and leveling-up awesome skills and fun minigames, such as fishing, foraging, hunting, insect catching, cooking, gardening, and more. Players will progress their character and earn new recipes for crafting increasingly useful items using the player’s intuitive worktable.
  • Welcome Home – The sheer amount of housing customization options available, to both the house’s interior and exterior, practically ensures that no two housing designs will be the same. If they want, players can expect to progress their pad from a tent to the size of a mansion estate. Players will truly have the opportunity to make their in-game house a home.

Palia is in development for Nintendo Switch and PC.
