Ooblets Is About Farming And Collecting Cute Animals

I don’t normally like “Game is like Game” comparisons, but when you can say “Ooblets is like Harvest Moon and Pokemon and Animal Crossing”, it really helps get a point across.


Point being this looks great.

We’ve been quietly tracking its progress for a while now, so it’s nice to see that Double Fine has signed the game and will be publishing it.

Ooblets is a game where you run a farm, but while running it you also collect lil’ critters and hang out with the local folks.

It’s coming to PC and Xbox One.

I didn’t think you could sell a game in a single gif. And yet here I am reaching for my wallet.
