Phoenix Labs unveiled its Fae Farm game for the Nintendo Switch coming in spring 2023.
The cozy-casual farming and life simulation title lets you gather resources, craft items and customize your home so you can restore Azoria to its natural splendor.
In the game, you cultivate a homestead in this fairy-tale farm simulation role-playing game. You face off against foes and discover magical spells to grow crops with up to four players in local and online multiplayer.
As seasons change, new surprises arrive. Built with cooperative experiences in mind, Fae Farm enables seamless drop-in, drop-out play through online and local wireless, so players can easily build farms, take on quests, and adventure together.
In Fae Farm, players take on the role of an adventurer invited to join a friendly community and create a home, while restoring harmony to the land of Azoria. Alone or with friends, players will build out their homesteads, explore varied environments, gather resources, and plumb the depths of the world to uncover the magic they’ll need to rebuild Azoria.
The development team behind Fae Farm is building the game as a love letter to farming and life sims they’ve enjoyed for years, with the goal of creating a relaxing and joyful experience for players all around the world to delight in for countless gameplay sessions.
“[Creative Director] Katie De Sousa’s vision for Fae Farm has excited us for a long time, and you can feel the passion she and the team have poured into the game from day one,” said Jesse Houston, CEO of Phoenix Labs, in a statement. “From the artwork and the game design, to the handcrafted world and seamless online play, Fae Farm exemplifies our desire to create timeless games that will be shared for generations.”
“With Fae Farm we wanted to take our favorite elements of the sim genres we love, infuse them with magic and beautiful art, and wrap everything in a light-hearted cooperative experience,” said De Sousa. “I can’t wait to see what kind of cozy homesteads players build in Azoria.”
