    Despite its lack of difficulty, our time with Forager was enjoyable to the very end. For those seeking out a new chill crafting game, Forager is worth your while.

    Forager is a quirky, relaxing game that is dripping with charm. A simple premise expanded on in meaningful and tangible ways creates a title that is not only delicious fun but also thoroughly addictive.

    Forager is a lovely surprise, its simple appearance disguising a huge amount of content packed under the surface. Rarely has crafting been as enjoyable and streamlined, whilst the sheer range of things to do means that you never have to feel bored. You’re always working towards something whilst the dungeons are well designed and feature classic puzzles which makes for a refreshing change of pace from the relentless acquisition. All in all, Forager is a gem, and well deserves to dig its way under your skin. Just don’t complain to me it's 4AM and you’re still mining.

    It doesn’t look great, and the idea might seem too simple, but the execution is great. It actually relies on simplicity to create a fun idea that simply works. A great option for fans of crafting.

    8-bit inspired open world crafting and exploration idle game that will surely capture the hearts of both fans and non-fans of the genre.

    Forager is a game that gives you joy from the minute you start playing, and from there just continues delivering. With fun responses for the player’s actions, simple tasks feel a lot more engaging. Improvement in crafting efficiency keeps the gameplay feeling fresh, which prevents Forager from becoming tedious. By depicting the joy and sorrow of finding new material, Forager creates a story around the crafting gameplay itself. Forager can be enjoyed for as long as the player wants to. Finding your own way to solve problems might feel tough at first, but that’s what makes it so addictive in the end.

    Forager offers a pleasant mix of multiple genres, but lacks the finesse of the games it is based upon. Sometimes this game will just require you to press your left mouse button and that is simply too boring.

    There is so much to explore and replayability. Each time you replay the game it feels different.

In Forager, you must gather resources and buy plots of land to gather even more! As time goes on, you unlock more crafting recipes and more buildings to build. The game claims to be an idle game that allows you to stay active and play but doesn't actually become idol until around 10 hours in where you can produce small numbers of resources automatically. The game is quite fun and cute, but I can't recommend it to everybody. If you like Stardew Valley, Harvest Moon, Minecraft, or Animal Crossing, however, you may like this game too. Expand

    Debo decir que es muy adictivo y bonito a la vista, pienso que tiene mucho potencial si el desarrollador se decide a seguir actualizándolo,Debo decir que es muy adictivo y bonito a la vista, pienso que tiene mucho potencial si el desarrollador se decide a seguir actualizándolo, disfrute mucho lo que pude jugar de el pero me deja con la sensación de estar inacabado, ya sea por bugs que me encontré a lo largo de la partida o porque la curva de dificultad no esta del todo trabajada, llega un momento donde todo se rompe y solo importa grindear para terminar los "desafíos" restantes.

    Fun and addictive at the beginning, but very repetitive and grindy near the end game (at the 18-20 hours point). I get ideas from StardewFun and addictive at the beginning, but very repetitive and grindy near the end game (at the 18-20 hours point). I get ideas from Stardew Valley and The Legend of Zelda, but it is not at the height of neither. Expand
