Ooblets, the creature collector who is sure to add some extra cuteness to your life, will finally have early access to both Xbox One and the Epic Games Store on July 15. Head here to watch the adorable release date reveal trailer.
Ooblets will be in Xbox One Game Preview and Early Access in the Epic Games Store for $ 24.99. However, if you buy Ooblets during the first week, you will get a 20% discount (approximately $ 5).
Ooblets is a farming, creature gathering, and city life game where you can make friends with townspeople, grow ooblets (those adorable creatures), build a farm, and participate in dances. It’s Animal Crossing meets Pokemon and Stardew Valley, and it’s everything the world needs right now.
As our own Sam Loveridge wrote last week, Ooblets will be much more than what you expect, and the developers know this. “It would be helpful if people are familiar with the concepts of agriculture and city life, but from what we’ve seen, they all have very different expectations and imaginations of what Ooblets will be. Hopefully we can provide something that people like that will also surprise them, “explained developers Rebecca Cordingley and Ben Wasser.
With Ooblets, you’ll start by creating your character from a host of customization options, then grow and sell vintages, level up your ooblets to unlock new dance moves, and decorate your own home. You can befriend the townspeople (if you feel friendly), complete daily challenges to earn badges, and help your city’s mayor save him from “questionable forces.” If that hasn’t piqued your interest, nothing will.
We have been waiting for this day for quite some time, we consider Ooblets one of our Big in 2020 games.
