Create dozens of planets and fill them with life.
Publisher NIS America has announced that Yasuhiro Wada, the creator of 'Harvest Moon' will release his latest game 'Birthdays the Beginning' on PS4 and PC on March 7th in North America, a European release will follow on the 10th.
'Birthdays' is a (fantastically-named) god game where players will create cube-shaped worlds and shape the evolution of each planet's lifeforms. The publisher describes the game as follows:
From the creator of Harvest Moon, Mr. Yasuhiro Wada (Toybox Inc.), comes Birthdays the Beginning: a new sandbox game in which players create cube-shaped worlds that give rise to diverse and unique lifeforms. With careful experimentation, players can shape the geography and alter the temperature of each world to create the conditions for life and witness the birth of an entire ecosystem!
A World All Your Own – Create any world you can imagine! From staggering mountains and sprawling forests to a deep sea dotted with islands, there’s no limit to your creations.
Life from the Beginning – Discover the history of everything as you foster life of all shapes and sizes – from single-celled organisms to complex multicellular life, including plants, mammals, dinosaurs, and more!
Cultivate Your Imagination – Imagine, Experiment, Create! Shape your planet and decide how plant and animal life evolves. No two planets will ever be truly alike.
I really like Yasuhiro Wada's body of work, particularly 'Harvest Moon' which gave rise to 'Rune Factory', one of my favorite game series of all time. I admit I'm not terribly into god games, but this looks charming enough that I might have to give it a shot.
