Taking inspiration from titles like Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley, Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure adds to compelling exploration, resource gathering, crafting and customisation systems with a host of fun gameplay ideas that give this colourful title its own twist. Befriending local wildlife and using their unique abilities to help you access new areas of the island offers a compelling exploration mechanic, unlike anything you’ve seen in the genre before. Expect to encounter perilous pirate camps and battle monsters as you uncover Ikonei Island’s secrets. Perhaps most importantly, look forward to doing all this with your friends! One of the key features that Snowcastle has added to the game is multiplayer to ensure that the fun is shared.
Set in the universe of the Earthlock RPGs, Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure takes the rich world-building and magical setting of the franchise into new territory. As you explore a diverse and intriguing landscape with secrets waiting to be uncovered, you will discover ancient ruins from a bygone civilization and unlock a host of different biomes, ranging from icy mountains and parched deserts, to dense jungles and humid swamps.
Alongside the game’s satisfying crafting systems, farming, combat and everything else Ikonei Island has to offer, players will have the opportunity to make the island their own. An upgradable hamlet serves as a base of operations and unique placeable items allow you to customise the island to your liking. That extends to your home, which can be decorated to your own tastes!
“We’re very excited to be launching Ikonei Island on Steam Early Access today,” said Bendik Stang, Game Director & Co-founder of Snowcastle Games. “We hope you have fun exploring and discovering all that Ikonei Island has to offer and welcome all thoughts and feedback from our community on our Discord and social media channels!”
