2D Open-world indie hit Forager, from HopFrog and Humble Bundle, is getting a physical release this October thanks to Nighthawk Interactive! Forager will be available on both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch for $29.99 on October 22nd. Copies will come with an exclusive poster and bonus stickers! If you are interested in picking up your own copy of Forager physically pre-orders are now up on Amazon for both the PS4 (affiliate link) and Switch (affiliate link) versions.
Key features of Forager include:
Become an Adventurer – With four distinct old-school dungeons to raid, players can face mighty bosses solo or with the help of NPCs, and seek out puzzles and hidden treasure chests filled with blueprints and goodies. Leveling up to learn new skills and abilities and unlocking new weapon recipes will help the intrepid adventurer.
Become a Farmer – Players can cultivate vegetables, flowers, fruit, strange herbs and even rocks and minerals with the right tactics. Animals can become part of the family, too, as players pet, feed and take care of animals to win over their animals’ deepest loyalties through the Love System.
Become a Gatherer – All sorts of resources, consumables and materials are available for players to forage, fish, mine, hunt, dig and farm across various biomes. The rarest discoveries can be turned in at the local Museum to showcase and earn special rewards.
Become a Merchant – Forager is full of resources to exploit. Players can sell everything, buy more things, and then sell those things at a profit and manufacture an empire through trade and aggressive expansion.
Become a Builder – All the land is the player’s foundation, ripe for building and growing a base out of nothing. Players can purchase land to design and decorate whatever base fits their preference, whether that be a serene farm, industrial hub, defensive fortress, or cozy cottage.
Become… [fill in the blank] – The world of Forager is a playground for player’s choice. Anyone can set their own goals and work towards them.
Good to see yet another physical release coming this year for a well received indie title! If you have yet to check out Forager, does this new physical version tempt you to check it out?
