Drake Hollow, the charming cooperative game from indie developer The Molasses Flood is coming to Steam and Xbox One on July 17th. We had a chance to interview the team earlier this year at PAX East and came away excited about the breadth of the gameplay. We will have a review here once the game launches.
The full press release is below:
Drake Hollow is a cooperative action village-building game set in The Hollow – a blighted mirror of our world – in which players build and defend villages of Drakes, the lovable, local vegetable folk. Either solo or with friends, players follow the guidance of a mysterious crow to explore a dynamically generated and aether-swept world of islands all to help the Drakes restore their camp.Mysteries and rewards — and danger — await those curious enough to search every nook and cranny of The Hollow. As they explore the wilderness and set up valuable supply routes to bring essentials back to camp, players will rescue and protect a variety of Drakes from a menagerie of feral beasts to earn unique skills and player enhancing buffs. The village must be well-stocked and well-defended if the Drakes are to survive. Unraveling the peculiar and ancient connection between The Hollow and our world will be key to finding a way back home.“I’m proud of the hard work and determination our team put into Drake Hollow ,” said Forrest Dowling, CEO and Design Lead at The Molasses Flood. “We got some fantastic feedback from early testing and we’re excited to invite all players into our mystical, magical take on an alternate-universe New England on July 17th.”
