Today, developer Prideful Sloth released a new trailer for its open-world adventure game, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, showcasing one the greener and more balmy looking environments found within the game: Sunderwind Wilds.
Further the trailer also introduces us to “Squombles,” which appear to essentially just be the game’s take on squirrels.
As you may know, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is set on the vast island of Gemea, a lush frontier home to eight distinct enviroments — ranging from snow-capped mountains, to lush green pastures, to tropical beaches. Each environment contains its own flora and fauna, as well as has changing seasons and a day-night cycle. Gemea is said to be a paradise; however, and “evil murk has enshrouded the land and its people in despair.”
As the hero of the game, you will explore Gema, uncovering its secrets and mysteries within yourself. Apparently, your character is on a quest to become the island’s champion, and will join forces with Sprites, creatures who are the only thing capable of dispersing the murk, in order to save Gemea and its people.
Along the way you can build relationships with the locals by contributing to the island via farming, crafting, brewing, fishing, and cooking. In turn these people will help you out on your journey.
Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is set to release for PS4 and PC on July 18th. Below, you can check out the new trailer, Sunderwind Wilds, and its Squombles.
