Developer Tiny Roar and publisher Daedalic Entertainment have revealed Wanderful, an upcoming “cozy builder” that looks like a glamorous and relaxing time.
Tiny Roar describes the game as a “lightweight and fun building and exploration game where you place tiles to expand your world with little adventures and big surprises for your characters to enjoy. you discover.” Using these tiles, you can create a “unique story multiverse” at your own pace. If you want to play fast and loose, you can; If you want to play it strategically, arranging each brick in such a way that your story plan plays out perfectly, it looks like you can do that too.
Check out the Wanderful reveal trailer for yourself below:
“Tiny Roar is committed to finding new ways to tell stories through game mechanics and interacting with the world and its inhabitants,” a press release reads. “Wanderful is like a book full of stories just waiting to be told. With each tile you place, you turn a page and create a new adventure for little explorers roaming your world. Frame your own story and gradually shape their experience by exploring this cozy building, tile by tile.
“Wanderful is the perfect game to slow down and slow down. Watch your explorers uncover secrets and marvel at the landscape in sessions lasting five to thirty minutes. Build a multiverse.

The art style intrigued me, but being able to influence the game’s soundtrack with the tiles I placed has me selling the game when it launches in Steam Early Access in the future. As for the timing, that’s still unknown, and while the game’s preview time will be on Steam, Tiny Roar said the full 1.0 version will be coming to all platforms.
