Co-op village builder Drake Hollow launches today on Steam

For years, we’ve been told by our mothers and fathers to eat our vegetables. As if that wasn’t a great enough burden, now we must defend them.

Today sees the launch of Drake Hollow, a cute base building title that can be played solo or with a few friends online. The premise is that, for whatever reason, you’ve been tasked with guarding and entertaining a village of sentient veggies that are the target of angry monsters.

Sounds like this title can’t be beet, probably one for all thyme. I’ve bean hoping that something like this came along. I carrot wait to dig into it because that’s the sort of gamer I yam. I’m going to have to delete some hard drive space for it because there’s not mushroom left. If you do try it, lettuce know in the comments. Peas out!

Downloaded it from gamepass to kill the hours until Squadrons launches, looks cute and possibly fun.

Having spent some time with it, I’d say it’s mechanically solid and pretty fun. The game feeds you breadcrumbs of story through the tutorial quests and found notes. Combat is your standard block, dodge, attack fair, but it feels responsive. You get plenty of warning about needing to return to fight off a monster attack, and they’re rare enough (so far) to not feel like a chore (hello Fallout 4 settlements). If the world map you can see at the early part of the game is the entirety of it, seems like it’s going to be a pretty short game unless there are some tricks up its sleeve that’ll show up further in. Definitely worth a look if you’ve got game pass, though I don’t know I’d recommend dropping $26 for it on Steam yet.

It’ll probably take me a fortnight to remember what game this reminds me of.

I don’t relish these puns. I’m stewing right now. Puree horror.

In all seriousness, it looks like some of the cheese of Save The World but with some more traditional survival elements instead of insane trap building.

I’m not sure it’s a $30 bet, but it’s tempting. They had me at character customization.

You should be put on trial for crimes against humanity with those puns. :P

Anyway, game actually does look slightly interesting, as long as this isn’t another one of those 10% finished early access games that never see the completed light of day.

I’m intrigued, I’ll wait to see what folks think about it in the immediate and see more gameplay but I dig the premise.

Looks like they pushed the game live before changing the codename on Steam though, so you can “Buy Pocket Knife” rather than Drake Hollow : P

I would complain about how pun-ishing it was to read this article, Justin, but I have to go take a leek …
