Sneak Peak: Atomicrops!

(by Michael "Magic Mike" Dumee)

Just before the weekend our leading lady, Diana a.k.a. DumeeGamer, shared a trailer of an upcoming game Atomicrops. It looks funny and chaotic and it's in alpha stage. So let's check it out!

Atomicrops is an action rogue-lite farming simulator. You've inherited a farm and at the moment you start living there, a nuclear blast happens. Your farm is now the only source of food for you and your neighbors, but also  constantly under threat from wild animals who like to have a carrot or two for themselves.

The first thing that popped into my mind during my first play-through was that this game needed a tutorial. Don't get my wrong, the game play is logical and intuitive. But after my first defeat I wanted to buy new seeds and I had no idea how to get new seeds for my garden. Luckily for me, the next day there was an update available and what do you know? A tutorial was added! Lucky me!

Atomicrops can be a bit overwhelming but let me assure you, you get the hang of it before you know it. Plus you can upgrade and use the help from your lovely wife (if you married one) and/or recruit animals so you can automate farming tasks!

After playing a couple of rounds, I'm convinced that this game is filled with all kinds of crazy and because of everything that is happening (at the same time) it's definitely chaotic. (and this might be a coincidence, but the bunny enemy actually reminded me of 80's hero Jack Rabbit)

Let's come to an end with this excellent Early Acces trailer of Atomicrops:
