Ooblets releases July 15 for PC and Xbox One, and I'm so ready


This creature-collecting farming game will melt your heart

The three-year wait for Ooblets, a game about farming crops for cash and raising a team of cute little critters, is almost over. Glumberland is starting its Early Access journey for Ooblets on Xbox One (with the Game Preview program) and PC (through the Epic Games Store) on July 15, 2020, for $24.99.

Ooblets is hovering over that highly sought-after Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing, and Pokémon airspace, but not in an overly derivative way. The game should be a feel-good adventure full of chatting, collecting, leveling, and even dancing. (Instead of fights, there are dance battles.) It has a bunch of mechanics I'll enjoy digging into and everything's wrapped up in a pleasant, wholesome package.

"There's still a lot ahead as we work towards 1.0," according to the developers, "but we're very excited to hit this milestone." This may not be your ideal way to dive in, but I can't wait any longer.

If all goes well, we'll have Early Access impressions of Ooblets later this month.
