    Hokko Life Coming Soon to Steam Early Access

    Hokko Life Steam Early Access

    As a lifelong fan of the Animal Crossing series of games I’m keeping a very close watch on Hokko Life. It looks like it could be the answer to all of the prayers of PC players wishing they had an Animal Crossing type game to enjoy. Hokko Life is being created by ex-Sony developer Robert Tatnell. I’m so exited about this upcoming game I decided to hop on board and support his Patreon.

    About Hokko Life:

    Hokko Life is a creativity-filled community sim game that invites players to escape the hustle-bustle and relax in their new home of Hokko. Build the town of your dreams with Hokko Life’s creativity tools, which allow you to customize and design furniture, clothing, and much more! Those creative juices not flowing? Why not relax and while away the hours at a local fishing spot; out hunting bugs; or tending to your garden!

    Hokko Life Announcement Trailer:

    Features:

    🔨 CRAFT:  Head to the forest or the abandoned mine to chop; mine, and dig for resources. Take what you’ve collected back to town and craft them into materials you can use in your own designs.

    📐 DESIGN:  Gather your materials and head into the workshop to put your own spin on every item in the game. Use the design table to build your own furniture, combining different shapes and materials in a simple but powerful editor.

    🎨 PAINT:  Pop on your overall, get out those brushes and throw some colour down. You can design wallpaper, flooring and even T-Shirts for you and the villagers to wear. Get everyone in town wearing your own unique designs!

    🏠 BUILD & DECORATE:  Enlist the help of the resident builder and start expanding the town. Place buildings wherever you like and get them ready for new villagers to move to town. Customize these new homes inside and out; choose designs and place furniture to make a home your new friends will love.

    🌱 FARM:  Turn any plot of land into a place to grow vegetables and other plants, use your green fingers to grow and sell the best produce.

    🎣 FISH:  Spend a quiet morning at the various fishing spots around the world of Hokko and build your fishing collection. Fish have unique habits, so you’ll need to vary your approach, with each catch providing it’s own challenge when you reel in.

    🦋 BUG HUNT:  Fluttering and scuttling about the world of Hokko you’ll find a whole range of insects for you to catch and build your collection with; keep a eye out, you never know what might be hiding in that bush!

    Steam:

    The Hokko Life Steam page is live now for those interested in adding the game to their Steam Wish List: https://store.steampowered.com/app/824000/Hokko_Life/
    Hokko Life has a planned early access release date for sometime this year with the full game hopefully launching early 2021.

    Nordlicht: A pretty little adventure

    Beautiful art with a sweet story
    Nordlicht loading screen

    I don’t usually play point and click adventures but when I saw the artwork for Nordlicht I had to give it a go. It sounds like a lot of games I’ve fallen in love with over the years. Guess I just appreciate good art? Anyway, this little game has a good story to accompany the art and the mechanics are easy enough to make this game child-friendly.

    I point, I click, Repeat

    As mentioned, Nordlicht is a point and click game where you figure out how to do things by exploring and dragging items either onto each other to craft or onto the scene to use. The gameplay is easy, though you might get a little stumped if you don’t think outside the box or try to do something in the wrong order/spot.

    There are three parts to the story with what I’d call a little mini-game between where you have to sail the ship and keep it from getting destroyed by lightning, waves, or icebergs. Each of the three acts builds on the story of a Father and Daughter (and guinea pig) journey to visit mom. Several times in the story are little easter egg phrases that you may or may not notice. Plus there are lots of little nordic tidbits thrown in.

    Did I enjoy my playthrough?

    You’re darn tootin! I’m glad I picked Nordlicht up to review, despite it not being my favorite genre. I enjoyed seeing all the little cinematics and the art during the actual gameplay was beautiful. I would definitely play another one in this same style! Pick it up on Steam for a steal at only $5!

    Spoiler: Subject/Parent Warning

    If you want to play through this with your child – and I totally condone doing so – you should be aware that where you’re going is mom’s grave. I didn’t want to put any spoilers in here but this is one of those things you want to be prepared to discuss if need be with your kiddos. There’s a very pretty surprise when you visit!
