Forager coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4 this month!

Hey Foragers!

We are working super hard on the Combat Update that will release in 1-2 months!

In the meantime, I wanted to let you know that we finally got the console ports ready and Forager will come out on Nintendo Switch and PS4 on July 30th!

The console versions of the game will receive all content updates we develop for PC.

Additionally, we are working with a few retail partners to give you some extra goodies if you pre-order the physical version:

The physical version of the game includes an exclusive poster that can't be obtained anywhere else and some super cool stickers!

The game will be available to be pre-ordered from the Nintendo eShop, the PlayStation Store, GameStop, Target, Best Buy, and Amazon.

Pre-order for Nintendo Switch now

Pre-order for PS4 now

That's it for now! I will have some details on the upcoming Combat Update very soon, we have been reworking a bunch of combat/enemy AI stuff and the game is now... surprisingly difficult! :steamhappy:

As always, all updates will be free for everyone forever.

Happy Foraging!

Originally made for a jam (in which Forager won second place!), over 200,000 players tried and LOVED the prototype! You were all asking for MORE FORAGER, so here it goes! A full 15+ hour experience for everyone on Steam!

After a full year of development, the game on Steam features a TON of new content, systems, and exclusive features!

  • New lands and biomes (Deserts, Graveyards, Snowy Mountains, Volcanoes, and more!)
  • Combat mechanics have been added! (Dungeons, Bosses, Raids, Night time invasions, etc).
  • NPC interaction. Find quirky companions to trade or talk with.
  • Farming mechanics, including caring for animals and the harvesting of all sorts of crops and herbs.
  • Archaeology mechanics. Play as a professional secret-finder as you raid ruins, dig for artifacts and display your findings in your own museum!
  • Alchemy & Rune Inscription mechanics. Allowing you to go all in on the crazy wizard fantasy, destroying big masses of resources with a single bomb or creating trees out of nothing with a powerful spellbook.
  • 16+ new skills to learn and master, in a free-form upgrade system that allows you to customize your experience as you see fit. This brings the number of skills up to 64 total, each unlocking new items, structures or gameplay modifiers!
  • Random events have finally been added!
  • New resources, objects, structures, animals, puzzles, secrets and more! More EVERYTHING!
  • Steam only features!
