The Molasses Flood (The Flame in the Flood) has announced that their in-development title, Drake Hollow, will be releasing on Xbox One, Windows 10, and Steam on July 17, 2020. It will also be a Day-1 Game Pass release.
Players will travel to The Hollow, which is home to the drakes and a blighted and dying place. The Drakes are a vegetable folk that are native to The Hollow and they need the player's help. They need food and drink, along with a place to sleep, and can literally die of boredom. They sound like a lot of word, but because you're a do-gooder it's up to you to save them.
Players can build gardens to provide the Drakes with food, wells for water, and yoga balls and puppet shows to keep them entertained and non-suicidal. Treadmills and solar panels can generate power for both Tesla coils and electric fences, because apparently the only thing they know how to do is breathe.
The Drakes aren't the only ones in The Hollow, as The Feral (who presumably know how to walk and talk at the same time) have overrun the land and look to destroy everything because frick the police. Players can battle them one-on-one with weapons that range from a nail gun to a tennis racket. Drake Hollow's online co-op will allow players to bring friends that can help defend and build defenses for the Drakes.
Players will be able to travel from region to region and season to season while taking the Drakes and their village along for the ride. The regions are dynamically generated and allow for some interesting scenarios to occur. For instance, should players use metal from the supply caches to build defense, or crystals from the blighted regions to grow their Drakes? Questions like these will be answered on July 17, when Drake Hollow launches for Xbox One, Windows 10, and Steam.
