Bit Orchard: Animal Valley Brings Game Boy-Style Farming Vibes To Change Soon
Update [Fri 15th Apr, 2022 19:00 BST]: Since the reveal from RedDeerGames yesterday, a Switch eShop page appeared for Bit Orchard: Animal Valley, with a release date – April 22 – and a price of $6.99. Be sure to check out the trailer up top and read up on the game details below.
original article [Thu 14th Apr, 2022 14:30 BST]: RedDeerGames has announced that it will bring 2Boone Games’ Bit Orchard: Animal Valley to Switch. Made by one person, Bit Orchard is a comfortable farming simulation that draws inspiration from the Game Boy era of the 80s and 90s and combines the genre at its simplest, most relaxing form.
The game launched on Steam last year, but given Nintendo’s chunky handheld inspirations, we think the Switch is a perfect fit for this cute game. You are going to grow an apple orchard and try to make profit to expand your small farm.
Here’s a summary of the game straight from RedDeerGames’ press release. And listen, if “only visible walls” doesn’t sell you on that, we don’t know what to tell you:
Bit Orchard: Animal Valley is a simple, charming and relaxing pixel art farming adventure with vintage 80s and 90s vibes.
This adorable game will appear on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One / Xbox Series S|X later this year thanks to RedDeerGames.
Pull weeds, plant new apple trees and literally reap the fruits of your labor. Over time, you’ll discover ways to make your life easier and explore this charming 2D world.
IMPROVE YOUR ORCHARD
Sell your apples to earn money and improve your orchard. Expand your terrain and discover new secrets. Who knows, maybe you’ll make new friends along the way…
Enjoy a trip down memory lane, with stylized 2D graphics, resembling old Game Boy titles. If you like pixel art games, you should not hesitate to try this charming game.
You’ll hear some catchy tunes to enhance your adventure. You can switch from one track to another, each time you return to your room, for a well-deserved rest.
– Simple controls
– No invisible walls (only visible)
– High replay value
– A pet rabbit!
– Stylized 2D graphics
– Amazing music track
Admire the sepia tones (and splashes of pink-red apples, too) of your future orchard with these lovely screenshots.
This increase in Game Boy-inspired visuals and games makes us all nostalgic. Do you think anyone will make a Game Boy cartridge out of it so we can pull out our big gray brick?
