Indie / Solo developer Moonroof Studios has announced the release of its farming rogue-lite title, Moondrop into Early Access on PC on August 12, 2022.
Moondrop is a very unique game which combines tactical farming mechanics with rogue-lite replayability and exploration, taking the roguelike genre to a whole new level.
The game is the result of the 7 Day Roguelike Challenge in 2020 undertaken by its Cleveland-based “jack-of-all-trades” solo developer.
Each farm is located on a shapeshifting mountain where magical mists descend nightly and rearrange the terrain. No farm can last forever, but players skilled at farming and alchemy can hold off the mists for a time. You must carefully position their crops for maximum growth while contending with exotic plants that teleport around the farm or cannibalize their neighbours.
You will explore a procedurally-generated mountain trail “dungeon” filled with puzzles, secrets, and powerful potion ingredients. After each farm disappears into the mists, you rebuild a village to unlock more new upgrades, perks, and magic items for the next run. With skill and persistence, you will reach the top of the mountain and reveal its mysteries.
