Today Singularity 6 launched the closed beta of its cozy MMO Palia, and to celebrate they also revealed a cinematic trailer.
The trailer focuses on the world and characters of the game, and as you can likely expect, it's extremely cute and charming. The animation is also great, and it could easily be mistaken for an animated short by the masters at Blizzard.
You can watch it below.
The closed beta is now playable for PC, but even if you haven't been picked, you won't have much longer to wait, considering that an open beta is launching on August 10. You can register on the official site.
If you're unfamiliar with Palia, th developers describe it as an "intimate, shared-world online multiplayer gameplay experience that emphasizes relaxation, community, and developing meaningful in-game connections" instead of prioritizing combat like most other other MMOs do.
The press release included a comment by Aidan Karabaich, Co-Founder and Game Director at Singularity 6
We’ve spent years building towards this moment, pouring ourselves into Palia to create a new kind of community sim game that truly feels like a home away from home.
We see our beta period as the next step in a long-term process to create a game where you and your friends can easily play together, forget the stress of everyday life, and just have fun in your own way.
We look forward to welcoming players into the cozy world of Palia and working with our awesome community to refine the game during the beta process and beyond.
If you'd like to see more about the game, you can take a look at the previous trailer, showcasing the actual gameplay.
The game will fully release in the Holiday Season and a Nintendo Switch version has been announced just a few weeks ago at the latest Nintendo Direct.
