Solarpunk, an open-world survival game developed by indie developer, Cyberwave, and published by rokaplay, is set to launch in Early Access for multiple platforms next year. In addition to this announcement, Cyberwave has also launched a Kickstarter campaign to support Solarpunk‘s development.
Solarpunk is set in a futuristic world of floating islands, where players must use sustainable technology to craft a self-sufficient ecosystem. Players will have to use sunlight, wind, and water to create an energy system and automate processes such as gathering resources and watering plants. It will launch on Steam Early Access in 2024, with PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch versions to follow.
To support the development of Solarpunk, Cyberwave has recently initiated a Kickstarter campaign. This crowdfunding campaign invites fans to contribute towards the game’s progress and receive exclusive perks in return. The Kickstarter campaign is now live and open for participation.
Within the world of Solarpunk, players will be able to construct and decorate their own homes using a variety of modular building components and decorative items. As fruits and vegetables are the primary source of food in the game, players will also plant various seeds in the ground and harvest the fully developed plant after a time.
Apart from food sources, players will also need to gather raw materials to craft new items. For bigger items and technical devices, crafting tables are needed. Each item has an individual recipe that provides instructions about the type and the amount of raw materials needed.
Emphasizing the importance of sustainable technology, players will generate electricity using wind, water, and solar energy, which will be important for operating technical devices. By connecting the devices with wires, players can bring electricity even to the most remote places in the game.
Solarpunk appears to be a promising title with its blend of survival gameplay and farming simulation elements. Its extensive range of features, particularly the inclusion of technological devices, distinguishes it from other titles in the cozy farming sim genre, elevating the overall immersive experience.
You can add Solarpunk to your Steam wishlist now to be alerted when it becomes available.
