Gaming News Week 51

Come on in, get yourself a nice cup of coffee or tea and pull up a chair.

While another storm is raging outside, I’m looking forward to the Holidays. Not a white Christmas, but that’s fine. We will just watch Christmas movies and enjoy the music and cheerfulness they spread.

There’s gaming news too, so let’s check it out!

The Gift Of GUPPI

Loddlenaut has been out on Steam for over a month now, but the developer Moon Lagoon and publisher Secret Mode didn’t waste time in keeping busy with the title.

They have visited everyone’s GUP-14 homes in one night to deliver a gift. Players will find the present somewhere on GUP-14 , but don’t delay in finding it – the festive magic won’t last forever. Plus, they confirmed that Loddlenaut is now Steam Deck Verified, with quality-of-life improvements delivering the best handheld experience for Steam Deck players.

Loddlenaut is a creature-raising survival game that takes place on an ocean planet. Play as an interstellar custodian who is sent to clean up an abandoned planet polluted by a mega-corporation. Befriend local axolotl-like creatures and explore sunken corporate ruins as you revive the planet’s lush ecosystems. Valerie checked it out and liked it a lot, as you can read in her review here.

Create a Cozy Restaurant in Touhou Mystia’s Izakaya

We don’t usually cover shooting games here on LadiesGamers, but the Touhou Project took a new turn. Touhou Mystia’s Izakaya, from developer Dichroic Purpilion and publisher Phoenixx, assigns you to create a cosy restaurant. Instead of combat, players have to achieve victory through cooking and customer service.

In the game, you have to restore Mystia’s raided restaurant and reclaim its title as the top tavern in Gensokyo! Gather ingredients and recipes during the day from places like the Hakurei Shrine and Human Village. Create a welcoming atmosphere with adorable staff outfits, charming decorations, and relaxing music. At night, serve up perfect dinners by cooking customer requests with care and hospitality. Keep customers happy in a row to increase profits and earn special rewards from over 30 Touhou characters, including Reimu and Akyuu.

Touhou Mystia’s Izakaya is coming to Nintendo Switch on May 2nd 2024.

Physical Edition for Princess Farmer

Whitethorn Games has partnered with Limited Run Games to bring a physical edition of Princess Farmer. The game will get the physical edition on PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch. Pre-orders for the game will start on December 28.

Princess Farmer is a match-3 puzzle and visual novel game with easy-to-learn action mechanics and different play styles that let you breeze through the game or challenge you. Princess Farmer was just an ordinary farmer when she woke up under the Gaia Tree one day. Now, through the magic of Mother Gaia she can hoist up whole rows of veggies with ease to make matches and smash obstacles by herself, in co-op, or even with an AI companion!

Paula reviewed the game, made by the wife and wife team of Samobee Games, and liked it a lot, see her review here. If you want to play the digital edition of the game, it’s available on PC via Steam and Epic Games, Xbox One and Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices via the Apple Store and Google Play. 

Terra Nil On Switch

Originally released in Steam and Netflix Games, developers Free Lives announced that Terra Nil is now available on the Nintendo Switch.

Terra Nil provides a calming and meditative take on city-building. Utilising advanced eco-tech, you transform barren wastelands into vibrant ecosystems, purifying soil, cleansing oceans, planting trees, and reintroducing wildlife. After turning a lifeless world into a thriving one, the goal is to clean everything up and leave no trace.

The game features four distinct, replayable, procedurally generated biomes: volcanic glaciers, ruined cities, and tropical islands. Each biome presents unique challenges with its climate, geology, flora, and fauna. You can craft swamps, rainforests, rivers, and more, witnessing a dry, cracked landscape suddenly burst with life and colour.

Paula reviewed Terra Nil and gave it our highest score of Two Thumbs Up.
