Everdream Valley by Mooneaters (Poland)
Everdream Valley is a magical open-world farming adventure game in which the player can take on the role of various animals living in the valley. During the day, he takes care of the farm, growing crops, raising animals, fighting pest infestations and exploring the valley where the farm is located. At some point, however, he begins to have strange dreams. During those dreams he can for example defend the farm from wolves as a dog, search for lost ducklings as a mother duck or travel through the sky above the farm in the body of a magpie. From now on, the player must not only take care of the farm, but also solve the mystery of the strange dreams.
Mooneaters from Poland took the NGDC Season VI wild card seat.
A big congrats to the three selected games for the NGDC Season VI Grand Finals in Estonia – and good luck to all!
