Publisher Raw Fury announced today that the action roguelite farming simulator Atomicrops, developed by Bird Bath Games, will launch on PC-via the Epic Games Store later this year, and in 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Via a press release, Raw Fury shared why they decided to go the Epic Games Store exclusive route for the PC release, mentioning the following: “We’re glad to see a storied partner like Epic believe in what Bird Bath Games is bringing with Atomicrops, and since a roguelike needs a bustling community we’re looking forward to having their assistance to help build one as we ramp up for the game’s launch in 2019.”
The wondrous world of indie games, as it stands right now, is massive — with some even saying that there’s an “Indiepocalypse” happening. Many factors tie into an indie game being successful, and via the aforementioned press release, Raw Fury shared that their agreement with Epic will allow Atomicrops to “flourish before it launches” and that the creators can have some “peace of mind”.
In Atomicrops, you’ll own the last farm in a post-apocalypse wasteland, inherited from your late grandfather’s will mere moments before the surrounding countryside gets vaporized in a nuclear blast. With the one and only source of nourishment within in the town that’s in your hands, you’ll have to do whatever it takes to keep the farm from not dying and from not being taken over.
Throughout the game, players will be able to farm by growing mutant crops, marry by woo-ing locals, kill plenty of strange creatures, and upgrade their farm, and even befriend cute animals.
