Dragon Shelter

Indie developer Wild Forest Studio has announced Dragon Shelter, a Studio Ghibli-inspired fantasy farming sim.

In the game, players will be tasked with restoring their grandpop’s old farm with the help of – you guessed it – cute dragon helpers. You’ll have to give your dragons the proper attention and love as you progress to keep them happy.

The player’s farm will slowly be revitalized as the player cultivates crops, repairs buildings, and ultimately helps the environment recover. This, in turn, also helps uplift the nearby city and its downtrodden citizens.

Dragon Shelter is in development for Windows PC (via Steam), though a release date wasn’t announced. Here’s the first screenshots:
