Publisher Rokaplay and developer Cyberwave have announced Solarpunk for Switch. The project is currently targeting a Steam Early Access launch for 2024 with consoles, including Switch, to follow.
Solarpunk actually ended up on Kickstarter this week where it already found a ton of success. In its first day, the campaign smashed its €30,000 funding goal.
As for what Solarpunk actually is, it’s a cozy survival crafting game Solarpunk that can be played alone or in co-op. We have a bunch of additional details below.
Solarpunk is a survival game set on a technically advanced world of floating islands, where you must use sustainable technology to craft a self-sufficient ecosystem. Alone or together with your friends in co-op, you’ll have to use sunlight, wind and water to create an energy system and automate your processes like gathering resources and watering your plants.
Customize your own airship and solar sail your way through the skies to explore distant islands. Construct buildings, grow food, and craft gadgets to create your ideal home in the sky.

Patrick de Rijk, co-founder and programmer at Cyberwave, said: “Solarpunk dreams about an optimistic future, where we can use renewable energy and build a home in a world of floating islands. Players have to be innovative and creative to build the home they would want in a bright future.”
Rokaplay head of communication Adrian Kaiser added: “We love the vision of Solarpunk. It’s wondrous and majestic, yet retains a cozy innocence about it that’s becoming increasingly rare in a futuristic setting. Solarpunk is hopeful and harmonious, and it tickles an itch we’ve had to relax and be creative in this unique scenario.”
