Yes, it’s a sandbox RPG adventure game about nature. You can play with your friends. And yes, it has to-die-for pixel art. Yes, it will make your life better. So much better. Ankama today announced the #launch of online eco adventure RPG KWAAN, which is quite honestly just the most darling thing you’ve seen all day. After a period of self-improvement in the rarefied world of Early Access, the fully-fledged game is out now via Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC priced at $9.99 USD.
KWAAN Trailer (Linux, Mac, Windows)
Created by a renegade team of four digital tree-huggers from Ankama’s Montreal studio, puts players in the biodegradable shoes of the tiny Dwaal, agents of nature charged with the care of the planet. As prophesied, one day the giant mutant tree KWAAN appears, changing everything for the little Dwaals… FOREVER!
Sandbox RPG Features
- The game fuses all kinds of good stuff into one environmentally delicious gaming package: point-and-click, RPG, 15-player online co-op, pixel art editor, and a quite excellent grapnel for exploring the many levels on your collective quest to keep KWAAN happy. But beware – if at midnight each day KWAAN is too sad, the mighty tree lord will drown the world in tears, with the unfortunate side effect of crashing the server so you and your Dwaal pals have to start again from scratch.
- A UNIQUE CONCEPT
A hybrid of RPG, online ecosystem management and pixel-art creativity, where helping others and respecting nature are essential to survival ! At the heart of the game is an organic, evolving ecosystem, players must help each other to prevent the end of the world and uncover the many secrets of the god tree mysterious origin !
- AN DAILY BATTLE
Each day, the game checks the state of the god tree’s mood. If KWAAN is sad, the server will crash and the players must restart – keeping their experience ! So if Kwaan is happy, the tribe will progress through events and will hopefully unlock all the secrets of the game. If not…
- CONSTRUCT, ORGANIZE, DISCOVER
To make Kwaan happy, develop its branches, summon animals, create flowers, fight the pollution, use your grappling hook explore and unearth the secrets… Each action has an influence on the world! Each day, a new narrative event will appear, revealing more information about the Kwaan and the origin of the tribe.
- STUNNING PIXEL ART…
Created in collaboration with Gary Lucken (AKA Army of Trolls), our Art Director.
