Publisher Jetpack Collective and Snowcastle Games, an independent Oslo-based game developer, has announced that a new demo for Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure will be launching on Steam on Monday October 9th. This version will allow anyone to get a taste of exploring this delightful adventure game, and includes the ability for up to 3 demo players to play the co-op multiplayer version of the game for free when they join another player who owns the full game.
Ikonei Island is a gorgeous, cosy adventure that you can play solo or with your friends. You explore the beautiful island, uncover hidden mysteries, collect items to craft a charming home and bond with magical creatures. The game is reminiscent of cosy classics likeStardew Valley, Animal Crossing and Dinkum, but brings its own depth of narrative as it taps into the enchanting themes originally explored in Snowcastle’s Earthlock. Along with compelling genre staples like resource gathering, farming, crafting and customisation systems, Ikonei Island add its own twists with an exploration mechanic that sees you make friends with local wildlife and use their unique abilities to help you access new areas of the island, encounters with perilous pirate camps, monsters to battle and the ability to experience it all in co-op with your friends.
Snowcastle have also announced the games full price of £20.99 ($24.99) will be introduced from October 8th but that players will be able to pick up the game for just £11.39 ($14.99) until then.
Ikonei Island is currently available in Early Access on Steam and coming to the Epic Games Store, PlayStation, Xbox and, later, Nintendo Switch.
