Harvest Moon, Pokemon, and Animal Crossing Combine in Ooblets, Coming to PC and Xbox One

Double Fine Productions and independent developer Glumberland have announced a PC and console release for Ooblets.

The self-described “Harvest Moon meets Pokémon meets Animal Crossing” game will launch for PC and Xbox One sometime in 2018.

Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the upcoming hybrid game.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Glumberland:

Ooblets is a currently-in-development creature collection and farming game. It’s sort of like Harvest Moon meets Pokémon meets Animal Crossing meets the weird awkward people we are.

Plant, water, and harvest crops, manage and expand your farm, collect all sorts of junk, make friends, and also make littler friends (ooblets).

Use the crops you grow to befriend, upgrade, and heal ooblets. Buy a little shop and sell your excess crops and junk to the townspeople.

Explore regions like the Mamoonia desert, the spooky Nullwhere, bustling Hubton, and more! Discover loads of ooblets and battle other trainers all over the place.

Key Features

  • Live a simple life working the land (and battling magical creatures).
  • You get a little house you can decorate and expand.
  • Play at your own pace. Leave the stresses of city living behind you.
  • Take part in a bustling little town full of characters.
  • Open world exploring.
  • Visit a variety of regions (one will be under water I think!).
  • Automate production with things like sprinklers.
  • Run a shop!
  • Upgrade your dudes because I guess they’re not good enough for you.
  • Maybe you will get to name your dudes too?
  • Join an Ooblet club. Feel wanted and appreciated. Distrust other clubs’ members.

    Double Fine? You guys just love adding fuels to the fire, huh?

    Anyway, character designs scream tumblr (and Adventure Time?), and there’s a lot of female teenagers. Eh.

    The game isn’t coming to PS4. You guys need to change the title. The game looks like dissapointment incarnate, but someone might be interested.

    The description makes it sound fun, but it looks a bit weird in the aesthetic department. I’ll just keep a mental note of this game.

    i like the concept, but the art style looks too much like a Tumblr fanart of adventure time

    I like the idea on paper, but the tone and artstyle might get old a bit fast.
    I’ll keep an eye on it!

    This looks like the game tumblr’s always dreamed of. If they have a demo i’d give it a shot, otherwise this will be a total pass for me. Not just because of the art style, but knowing Double Fine involved means this game will probably be either A) Awful or B) Mediocre & Uninspired. They haven’t made anything GOOD since the original Psychonauts. They’ve had only “meh” and worse since then.

    The game looks nice, in terms of both gameplay and aesthetic, but those animations look horrid. All those characters look like they were mocap’d using Kinect.

    And of course,

    Unique, fresh, and yet somehow extremely bland feeling.

    When a game tries to be advertised with the line “X game meets Y game”, it shows the lack of originality and quality it has that ends up to use other companies’ IPs to advertise theirs.
