What Is The Wandering Village? Manage A City On The Back Of An Enormous Mystical Creature

The Wandering Village is an indie city-builder from Stray Fawn Studio, currently available to Wishlist on Steam and just off the back (get it?) of a successful Kickstarter campaign.

The premise behind the game is self-evident: you build and manage a village on the back of a gigantic wandering creature. Over time you must form a symbiotic bond with the animal if you want your village to succeed.

This is a novel concept and one with a lot of potential. If you enjoy city-builders that also present the player with urgency or need to survive, The Wandering Village could be your next favorite in the genre.

The narrative of the game is also quite brilliant. Essentially, the earth is covered in toxic plants that can wipe out the population of a city. To seek refuge from this spreading plague, a group of people finds shelter on the back of a huge wandering creature – a creature they call Onbu.

Together, the people and the creature look to survive in this harsh world. Toxic spores gather on the surface of the creature’s back, and it’s the villager’s task to clear it. If the creature falls then the village would quickly become overrun with plants.

There’s also a sense of movement that drives the narrative (and gameplay) onwards. As Onbu moves through the world, so too does your village. There are different biomes and weather conditions that will have an impact on your village, and as a result, your strategy.

And there is a fair bit of strategy involved, especially considering you need to micro-manage a village in a very small surface area. You can send out parties to gather resources, as there is a finite amount on the back of the creature.

The main core of the gameplay revolves around farming, building, and foraging. You’ll be able to plant various crops to keep your villagers fed and happy and send out foraging parties to explore the various unique biomes.

Overall, The Wandering Village has an excellent concept and a brilliant art-style. Onbu looks magnificent, the different biomes look charming, and the villager design is simple yet striking.

GeForce NOW Launches Its Beta Release On IoS Safari As Fortnite Set To Enable A Touch-Friendly Version

GeForce NOW, NVIDIA’s cloud streaming service for games, recently launched on iOS Safari in a beta release. It didn’t stop there; NVIDIA also managed to get around the strict Apple Store restrictions by deploying a web application.

Moreover, players will need to use a gamepad when playing games on the Safari browser due to its ‘hardware limitations,’ so, at the moment, it’s impossible to use a mouse and keyboard while playing.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Has Announced The Engine It’s Running, Bringing Likely Epic Game Store Exclusivity

Indirectly, this can only mean Fortnite may soon be available on iOS platforms, notwithstanding the current duel between Epic and Apple. Still, that day isn’t here, as a touchable version of Fortnite is undergoing optimization and will be accessible soon through GeForce NOW.

Fortnite Season 10 Comes To A Dramatic End, Say What You Want About Fortnite But The Finale Was Epic

Here’s what the team had to say:

Alongside the fantastic team at Epic Games, we’re working to enable a touch-friendly version of Fortnite, which will delay the game’s availability. While the GeForce NOW library is best experienced on mobile with a gamepad, touch is how over 100 million Fortnite gamers have built, battled, and danced their way to Victory Royale.

We’re looking forward to delivering a cloud-streaming Fortnite mobile experience powered by GeForce NOW.

In a recent report, NVIDIA revealed that there are over 5 million GeForce NOW members—along with those that use the free version—with a roll of over 750 games on the platform, including recent AAA titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion—featuring RTX and DLSS.

To crown it all, the most anticipated game of the year, Cyberpunk 2077, will also be available on its launch day on GeForce NOW with both DLSS and RTX activated through the cloud.

As for PC stores, GOG-support will be included soon with CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher III: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077 are expected to be the first GOG-titles supported on the GeForce NOW.

The Chrome-based version of GeForce NOW—debuted in August for Chromebooks—will be accessible through PC, Mac, Android, and Linux in the first quarter of 2021.

In addition, NVIDIA is expanding its cloud streaming service to more territories. And its partner, Zain, will be launched in Saudi Arabia.

Having said that, GeForce NOW to this day continues to progress as the cloud streaming battle in the gaming industry is on the rise, with big players like Google, Amazon, and Microsoft participating in this duel. Who would come out as the victor?
