505 Games and Prideful Sloth have revealed that Grow: Song of the Evertree is coming to Nintendo Switch later this year.
Looking to deliver an experience built around a “breathtaking world-crafting sandbox with life management and exploration elements,” you will be introduced to the once vibrant and colourful world of Alaria.
Now abandoned and overrun by the mysterious Withering, Alaria has since faded and the Evertree – whose many worlds once resided on its countless branches – is now nothing more than a sapling with its splendour long erased from memory.
As an Everheart Alchemist, you will learn how to nurture, care for and grow new and unique worlds from the Evertree’s branches. This will see old inhabitants return as life starts to blossom, who you can meet, learn their stories and create a dream town in which you community can flourish.
“With Grow we wanted to create a game that gave the player a sense of adding to the world, rather than taking away from it. This world is a giant garden, a place where you can tend and care for it, guiding it in the direction you wish it to grow,” explains Prideful Sloth game designer Cheryl Vance.
“We give you the ability to craft and customise your game experience; to let you determine the pace in which you do it. If you find a cave and get sidetracked from your current objective, that’s ok! If you want to befriend as many critters as you can, that’s ok, too. You are encouraged to play the way you want to, without penalty or pressure.”
Grow: Song of the Evertree will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2021.
