Studio Edelweiss is preparing to release an unusual project Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin. Western players will get access to it already this year, the game will appear on the PC and PS4. Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin – a hybrid of a side-scroller action movie with a farmer’s simulator with a developed system of crafts. The main heroine, the goddess of rice and fertility, was exiled to an uninhabited island, inhabited by friendly outcasts and bloodthirsty demons.
The game is based on Japanese mythology and culture. This applies both to “authentic” eastern demons and to the process of rice growing. The game will have a developed system of crafts, and we will carry out the whole process ourselves, from preparing the seeds to harvesting and processing the crop, intermingling important agricultural activities with hikes into the dungeons and battles with the enemies. And we have to communicate with the settlers and try to heal their souls.
