You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:

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.
  • Craft useful items & structures.
  • Build and grow a base out of nothing. Buy land to expand and explore.
  • Level up and learn new skills, abilities, and blueprints.
  • Solve puzzles, find secrets and raid dungeons!
  • Achieve anything you want! The choice is yours, you set your own goals to work towards!

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…


  • Forage, fish, mine, hunt, dig and farm for all sorts of resources, consumables and materials.
  • Explore different biomes for new resources.
  • Showcase your rarest discoveries at the local Museum and earn rewards for completing bundles!


  • Plant and grow all sorts of veggies, flowers, fruit & other fun and weird herbs

You may even “plant” and grow rocks and minerals if you find the right way to do it!

  • Animals are awesome! With our super fancy-schmancy Love System they can all be your besties!

Pet them, feed them and take care of them and they will love you FOREVER!


  • Capitalism is awesome! Why bother gathering resources when you can either mass-produce them or by them in bulk?
  • The world is FULL of resources to exploit and make profits with! Sell EVERYTHING! Buy more things! Sell them at a profit!
  • Build an empire through trade and aggressive expansion!


  • Upgrade your equipment and venture into 4 distinct old-school Zelda-like dungeons hidden in the overworld.
  • Invite NPCs to join your raiding party and face off against mighty bosses!
  • Solve puzzles and find 30+ hidden treasures chests filled with blueprints and goodies.


  • Build and grow a base out of nothing! Buy land to expand!
  • Place decorations and make roads to get to places faster.
  • Defend your home from invading foes. They are SO jealous of you!
  • Focus on industrial efficiency, on designing a nice little farm, or on making your base look nice. The choice is yours!

Forager is available on Windows PC (via GOG and Steam), Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.
