You will be able to craft and build your own farm or dream home in Planimal Point, you can also collect Planimal companions that can help you defeat your enemies and explore the world around you.
There will be three seasons that will affect the way that you play, with the weather and season changes determining which crops you can grow. The dark season will also result in strange mutations that “can dominate the land.”
