Chibig sells themselves as the makers of cozy and cute games, stuff that anyone can play no matter what their skills level. It was they who gave us the opportunity to spend the Summer in Mara back at the start of this year, but come 2022 the next title in their universe will release – Ankora: Lost Days.
Coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2022, Ankora: Lost Days is a cute-as-heck survival exploration adventure that looks to keep expanding the world that Chibig have created.
A brand new adventure that is full of exploration and crafting mechanics, Ankora will see you joining Mûn, a Junior Ranger from the Interstellar Patrol, stranded in Ankora, an unknown planet, after her spaceship crashes there. You’ll get to meet Mûn before the events of Deiland: Pocket Planet and Summer in Mara unfolded.
Ankora: Lost Days promises to mix terraforming, crafting and exploring mechanics in a wild planet that just so happens to come complete with a colorful style. Mûn must learn to overcome obstacles: rivers, lakes and waterfalls, mountains, level jumps, and many monsters as you and her make your own paths. You see, Ankora is a unique and changing planet.
The key features of Ankora: Lost Days will include:
- Mûn will need to craft her own tools to collect the necessary resources for her adventure. Play at your own pace, enjoying the small details of Ankora and its inhabitants.
- Use the hammer to build structures, the shovel to dig and modify the terrain and other tools to collect resources from the planet. Use the bow and the spike to survive the biomes and dangers in Ankora.
- Level up with each action and learn new recipes, skills in order to improve your chances of surviving.
- Visuals inspired by the Studio Ghibli films like Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. A modern setting in a fantasy universe.
Prior to launch though, Ankora: Lost Days will look for the support of the community in a Kickstarter campaign, with that kicking off on September 7th. The pre-launch page is already available for those who would like to follow the project – we urge you to give it a little look at the very least.
Does the launch in 2022 of Ankora: Lost Days on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC take your fancy? Let us know your thoughts. And wishlist it on Steam too if you really like it. You know that’s a good call.
