Hello! Most of you probably haven’t heard of us or our game yet, so I thought I’d tell you a bit about what Ooblets is, our upcoming game with full Xbox Play Anywhere and Cross Play support, and a little bit about ourselves too! My name is Rebecca and I’m the lead (and only) programmer on Ooblets. I’m also the lead artist. I don’t sleep much. I’ve got the rest of the team here, so I’ll let them introduce themselves one by one:
“Hi, I’m Ben.”
What is Ooblets?
Ooblets is a farming and creature collecting game. It’s been likened to Pokémon smushed into Harvest Moon and stirred up with some Animal Crossing. You’ll manage a farm, explore a bunch of weird places, find wild ooblets (that’s the name of the creatures), battle other ooblet trainers, collect all sortsa stuff, and even manage a little shop!
Battles are turn-based with a lot of team mechanics. Are you going to stack your team with quick attack ooblets or balance things out with healer and defense type ooblets? Who knows!?
The farming gameplay in Ooblets is full of juicy upgrades, automation, and zany crops like fleeps, greeps, and zuchinoids. Zany! You can also explore the regions of Oob (the name of the world) and travel across different biomes finding new ooblets, trainers, seeds, and maybe even some hats.
As if the Xbox One announcement wasn’t big enough already, we’re also super proud to unveil Ooblets as a Double Fine Presents game!
When Can I Play?
We’re aiming for a 2018 release. I know that’s a while from now, but we’ll make sure the wait is worth it. Until then, we’d love it if you followed along with our progress on all your favorite social networks like Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitch, Trunch, Tibdibz, and Boopwire.
You should also maybe definitely sign up at Ooblets.com so we can spam you when something big happens… like when the game is released.
