Gravity Game Arise Co., LTD is excited to announce Forestopia, the sequel to relaxing island simulator Desertopia. Following the success of Desertopia, Forestopia takes players to a brand new island where they’ll cultivate numerous flora and fauna. In addition to revealing Forestopia, Gravity Game Arise has announced that pre-registration for the game is now open.

Nominated at numerous game shows including Tokyo Game Show, Kyoto BitSummit, IMGA Global, and featured on the App Store’s Earth Day event for 3 consecutive years,
Desertopia took players on a relaxing (and quite frankly adorable) journey. Forestopia aims to follow the success of Desertopia’s 1.9M downloads by introducing a new environment as well as an updated UI/UX and other system improvements.

Forestopia, players are transported to a charming island that is uninhabited, save for a Yeti, a robot, and an interesting lab. Players can plant and cultivate seeds to decorate their island, research and create their favorite animals in the mysterious lab, forming incredibly cute terrariums, and eventually release the animals to live on the island in harmony.


As players progress through the game’s main quests, they’ll also uncover why the Yeti inhabited the island and what research was being conducted in the lab. In addition, players can expand their island as they gather more and more resources, shaping it into the relaxing island paradise of their choosing.

Desertopia fans can now pre-register for Forestopia on the App Store and Google Play Store. Players that pre-register will receive the “Shibainu” commemorative login bonus upon the game’s launch. For more information on Forestopia visit the official site here
