Sunkissed City: Stardew Valley’s Upcoming Sibling

Sunkissed City

In Stardew Valley, it was all about starting life on a farm that the player inherits. Starting out with something that was mostly boulders, and over time developing it into a fully functional piece of agricultural land. Sunkissed City has the same concept, but the application is in reverse. Rather than moving away from cities, you move into one.

You start out as a pioneer for the Pico corporation and your objective is mostly speaking highly of the corporation and its drive in making an eco friendly environment for the people of the city. Your other objectives include, similar to Stardew Valley, cultivating relationships with the people of the city. You can also customize your home with furniture, wallpaper, and other decorations, and you can also occupy yourself with multiple activities like cooking, fishing, getting a makeover at the salon, or even heading into the sewers and checking out some monsters.

The game also includes forest that are home to some creatures called the Keby and it is said that these creatures will be your main partners when it comes to solving Apollo City’s monster problem. The game will be featuring online multiplayer and even split screen co-op with adjustable difficulty settings and other quality-of-life settings for players.
