Publisher Jetpack Collective and Snowcastle Games, an independent Oslo-based game developer, have today released a new developer commentary video focusing on companion creatures in Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure.
The new developer commentary video focuses on the bonds you can build with creatures on the island and showcases how you can harness their unique abilities to gather materials and uncover the secrets of the magical island the game is set on. It explains how important it is to care for your creature when it comes to building your relationships and unlocking cool new abilities.
This video follows on from a recent developer commentary detailing the building and decorations aspects of Ikonei Island, a game that blends the joys of farming with the excitement of building your own unique home. The game delivers a whole host of creative features, including the ability to build, upgrade and expand your home to your own vision, whether that be a cosy cottage with a garden, or a cute campsite with a sprawling farm. From lush gardens to cosy interiors, the power to shape your living space is in your own hands and the possibilities are endless.
Ikonei Island is a gorgeous, cosy adventure that you can play solo or with your friends. You explore the beautiful island, bond with magical creatures and harness their abilities, uncover hidden mysteries, collect items to craft a charming home, battle pirates and more. The game is reminiscent of cosy classics like Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing and My Time at Portia, but brings its own depth of narrative as it taps into the enchanting themes originally explored in Snowcastle’s Earthlock.
Ikonei Island is currently available in Early Access on Steam and coming to the Switch sometime after Nov. 9th, 2023.
