Double Fine picks up Ooblets, a real cute game about farming and creature collecting

It’s headed to PC and Xbox One

Ooblets Ooblets. Where do I know that name from? Ah, right! It was listed among Patrick’s top 42 indie games to watch for in 2017 where he alluringly summed it up as “Pokémon meets Harvest Moon.”

In the game, you’ll raise and battle creatures. You’ll have a house to expand and a town to explore, with folks to chat up. You’ll even be able to run a shop, if you’d like. And best of all, there’s lots of dancing.

It all looks charming as heck, and I’m not the only one who thinks so: Double Fine is now publishing Ooblets. The game is looking at a 2018 release, and it’s primed to launch on PC and Xbox One.

“We’re going to keep doing what we’ve been doing, but we now have a lot more support from people who know what they’re doing, so we’ll hopefully be avoiding a lot of dumb mistakes we were otherwise planning on making,” said creator Rebecca Cordingley. “More generally, we’re now a bit less afraid of failure since so many people believe in us. We’re so thankful to have you all alongside us on this weird journey.”
