Roots of Pacha gameplay

Gameplay is here for the new Switch version of Roots of Pacha. This week, the co-op farming and life simulation title debuted on the system.

If you’re interested in learning more about it, read the following overview:

Roots of Pacha release date

Soda Den today announced a release date for Roots of Pacha, its co-op farming and life simulation game set in the Stone Age. It will be available for Switch on November 28, 2023.

When Roots of Pacha lands on Nintendo’s console, it’ll launch at version 1.1. It’ll come with feature parity and cross-platform multiplayer with the Steam version, romance options with Voda, smoke signal gifts and letters, new cutscenes, and more alongside a number of quality-of-life improvements. Further updates are planned “for 2024 and beyond with the intent to maintain feature parity between console and PC versions.”

Above Snakes

The western-inspired base builder Above Snakes has been confirmed for Switch thanks to a new announcement from publisher Crytivo and developer Square Glade Games. The project just recently came to PC, but it’s unclear when it’ll be on Nintendo’s console.

Above Snakes, which is set in a fictional world inspired by the American Wild West, features crafting systems, base building, and strategic gameplay. Players can craft the world around them tile by tile. The end goal is to unravel the secrets of a land consumed by mystery.

Kloa: Child of the Forest

Crytivo and Wildpad Games previously ended up hosting a Kickstarter campaign for for Kloa: Child of the Forest, and it ended up doing very well. €83,511 was raised – more than double the funding goal. There was also a €55,000 stretch goal that was reached, and because of that, we’ll be seeing it on Switch.

Here’s an overview of the game’s premise:


A new survival RPG is planned for Switch, with publisher Crytivo and developer Eli Segal confirming Wanderlost for the console. The two sides have not shared a release window just yet.

Despite being a survival RPG, Wanderlost is actually set “set against the backdrop of an adorable and pixelated post-apocalyptic world.” Players will take on the role of a survivor as they explore the ruins of old-America.

Roots of Pacha preview

Whenever a new farming-themed game hits the market, the big question that always seems to come up is: what does this game bring to the table that hasn’t already been done by the juggernaut that is Stardew Valley?  A lot of times the most obvious difference between games in this genre is the setting, and Roots of Pacha – an upcoming farming game/village builder from indie developer Soda Den – is setting itself apart by going all the way back in time to the Stone Age. During a recent gameplay demo at Summer Game Fest, I got to chat with Soda Den co-founder and lead developer Timo Dadony about just what their upcoming game is trying to accomplish.

Crucially, Roots of Pacha’s unique time period seems to play more of a role in how the game plays rather than merely being set dressing. The game tasks players with building up a clan of villagers at the outset of human innovation, back when very few tools even existed. From this starting point, players will “help your clan develop the ideas that shape humanity” through multiple eras of history all the way through the Iron Age. And while farming is certainly a part of that – as well as inventing the various pieces of equipment to make that happen – it also includes things like developing culture, arts, and even religion as part of a growing society.

Super Zoo Story

Publisher Crytivo and developer Super Zoo Story Team announced today that Super Zoo Story, an open-world zoo simulator with RPG elements, is in the works for Switch. The project is targeting a 2023 launch.

We have more information about Super Zoo Story in the following overview:

Serin Fate

Publisher Crytivo and developer Vethergen have confirmed plans to bring Serin Fate to Switch. The hand-crafted fantasy RPG made its debut on PC previously, but it’s unclear when it will be ready to go on Nintendo’s console.

Serin Fate begins with players being turned into a witch by a particular stone right before it’s destroyed. You’ll then be using the new magic you’ve received to aid Princess Starwen in finding the lost Shards of Fate. Throughout the journey, you’ll enter monster-infested lands to uncover ancient relics and restore the Fate Stone.
