Apogee Entertainment just announced crafting adventure vexlands developed by Emberheart. In this realm of surprises as apogee likes to call it. Your on a adventure to cleanse the cursed lands. You can do this by building a village and crafting equipment. Gather resources in exchange for precious coins, and spend hard-earned money to unlock nearby territories. Each parcel purchase is a gamble and permanently introduces good or bad elements into the ecosystem. Fruitful new areas can add positives to the world like raw materials, food sources, and new dungeons, while unlucky land grabs unleash dangerous enemies and enact natural disasters with surprising effects on the surroundings.
Outfit a thriving home base with supplies and defensive structures, and rest between quests into the unknown across five biomes. Harvest trees and foliage to provide tools and sustenance, and build crafting stations to upgrade gear. Discover local livestock and herd them homeward to create ongoing food sources, and construct buildings to speed up resource production and efficiency. Collect multi-purpose herbs that can be used for cooking up stamina-building meals or as part of alchemy recipes for potions to increase health, speed and defense.
“Vexlands shines in its customizability. Each playthrough is a new experience that lends itself to different playstyles,” says Scott Miller, Founder of Apogee Entertainment. “Between a beautiful procedurally generated world, a completely custom progression system and a pinch of coziness, a unique adventure awaits for every player and every playthrough.”
Vexlands is now in development, headed to Steam for PC, GOG and the Epic Games Store in 2024
