What are drakes? Drakes are the friendly native creatures who need your help for survival. Alongside basic needs such as hunger, thirst, and shelter, drakes want to have fun and be protected from the creatures that threaten their blighted home.

Build up and secure your base, create resources, bond with the drakes, and help keep these vegetable folk entertained. There’s always something to do or someone to defend in Drake Hollow.
