Indie studio Raw Fury has announced that their farming roguelike Atomicrops is leaving Epic Games Store early access on May 28th, and headed to PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on the same day. And yes you read that right, farming roguelike. Atomicrops takes the wholesome, adorable elements--raising crops, getting married, animal husbandry--from series like Harvest Moon, Story of Season and Stardew Valley, and mixes them with the murder and permadeath of the roguelike genre.
You're basically doing the Harvest Moon shtick in an irradiated wasteland, but folks still need to eat, so you might as well till the land and defend it with your fragile mortal existence against all manner of post apocalyptic horrors. The final version of the game includes 2 new spouse options, mushroom powerups and 10 difficulty tiers, if you were still doubting the roguelike part of this game. Check out the trailer below.
