Players will reach a town where they will have to build your house and spruce up your surroundings, as if it were a Story of Seasons: felling trees, plowing … But the most important thing is not even the decoration of the home, nor take care of the crops, ni to fish nor create clothing, but make friends, both characters in the game (can be played alone) as friends and players we meet in the world, who can be allowed to help decorate the house and take care of the farm.
I will have a story about the disappearance of humanity in Palia
Those who prefer a narrative experience will also have a reason to play. Palia, the territory that also gives its name to the game, was once home to mankind, but the species disappeared thousands of years ago, leaving the place to a kind of elves, machines and other characters that we will meet. Now the humanity has to find its place in the world and discover the mysteries of your ancestors.
The developers say that the design philosophy behind the game has been based on the concept that video games help people bond personal. “Our mission is to forge alternative worlds that deepen the lives of players,” they say in a statement on the studio’s website.
