  • Ooblets is a game about working hard and collecting magic Oobs.
  • During the PC Gaming Show, the developers showed off another look at Ooblets.
  • The developers also announced that Ooblets is coming to early access on Xbox One and the Epic Games Store soon.

During the PC Gaming Show, one of the many games shown off was Ooblets. It's a charming title self-described by the developers as "Harvest Moon meets Pokémon meets Animal Crossing." You'll have to collect Ooblets, compete in dance-offs and get to know your local townsfolk. It's been in development for a few years now, finally coming to early access on Xbox One and the Epic Games Store "very soon."

Admittedly, "very soon" isn't an exact date but hopefully this means interested players won't have to wait long to try it out. The trailer suggests this summer, likely translating to the weeks ahead. You can wishlist it on the Epic Games Store right now.

  • You need to know too that this was a game announced on Steam, and that Epic bought them over overnight. Whether that lack of loyalty to their player base is an issue for you, it's up to you. I didn't like it so I'll pass on this one.
