Announcement Trailer (Youtube) | Steam Page | Kickstarter

26 MAY 2020 - Publisher Armor Games Studios are delighted to announce they have partnered with developer Bluecurse to reveal the latest announcement trailer for Snacko - a cute Stardew Valley-like adventure sim in which you join adorable kitties, Momo and Mikan as they start out their new life on a seemingly deserted island.

Showcased via Wholesome Direct 2020, players will rebuild a community they can design and decorate as they please, and of course, farm, fish, and beyond, all at their own pace.

Step into the paws of Momo and her best friend Mikan as they arrive on a deserted island with a mysterious past to try to make a place they can call home. Even with some reluctant help from curmudgeonly caretaker Nobu, these kitties have their paws full trying to rebuild the island from scratch. As Momo, with Mikan’s help, you’ll grow crops, take care of animals, go fishing, and more, while choosing who to invite to help populate your budding village, and maybe discover the secrets of the island’s past along the way.

 

Snacko launches on Kickstarter Tuesday 26th May to help build a passionate community around the game who can provide valuable feedback throughout the development process. Drawing inspiration from, and building on, classics like Rune Factory, Story of Seasons and The Legend of Zelda series, Snakco hopes to take players on an unforgettable farming adventure.

Snacko is being created by Bluecurse Studios, a husband and wife game development team based in Canada. Artist and community manager Erisa said:

"We both had no idea that our fun little side project would grow into such a large and complex part of our lives.

"It's been an amazing experience to work on something that is 'just for us' that turned into a game that many are looking forward to. We can't wait to share more of the game with everyone!"

Snacko is live on Kickstarter now and available to wishlist on Steam.
