Developer Prideful Sloth has recently released a new trailer for their open-world adventure game: Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, releasing for PS4 and PC on July 18.
Prideful Sloth is a small team led by a former Activision producer and an artist and programmer from Rocksteady, which sets your character on the fantastical island of Gemea. The island has been beset by an evil presence, which has filled its once-happy residents with despair.
Your character is tasked with helping residents by contributing through talents like farming, crafting, cooking, fishing and brewing, which will help them build relationships and unlock rewards. There are also eight different environments to explore across Gemea, as the hero joins up with ethereal Sprites, the only creatures who can dispel the approaching darkness.
Fans of beautifully stylized worlds should be thrilled by the art style which looks similar to other adventures titles, such as Zelda and Rime. The bright and cartoony visuals add a uniqueness to Yonder which also heavily prioritize exploration. Because of this, Yonder looks incredibly appealing to me, provided that the actual gameplay manages to remain compelling in the long-run.
