Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure is currently available in early access on Steam. The 0.2 update has added a wealth of improvements and expansions, giving depth and customization to many aspects of the game.

Ikonei Island: An Earthlock Adventure is an early access title in development by Snowcastle Games. Set in the same universe as the game Earthlock, players can select one of four young adventurers to explore Ikonei Island, restoring it to it’s former glory. The game sports delightfully colorful 3D graphics and a pleasant soundtrack, as well as many of the key mechanics of popular farming sims.

Ikonei Island also combines combat with strategy, requiring players to solve puzzles on the island instead of simply attacking enemies with brute force. This makes it an excellent option for audiences of any age – especially as most of the puzzles aren’t too difficult to solve.

Similar to games like Coral Island, players will also be able to plant and sell crops, care for animals, and grow a town. This makes it a great pick for fans of the cozy or slice-of-life genres, as well as JRPG players.
