Littlewood: the world is saved, so now it's time to build and settle down as the hero.

The Dark Wizard has been vanquished! Peace has finally come to the land of Solemn and it's about darn time to chill. And some fishing.

Littlewood is a charming town building / life-sim / RPG where you are the Hero who saved the land of Solemn by vanquishing the Dark Wizard. In Littlewood, the world has been saved but at the cost of the your memories. You start out as having no recollection of the past, thus you are tasked of building the town from scratch and making friends (which is easy to do in videogames unlike RL).

No, I wasn't trying to cross the border and I didn't walk right into that imperial ambush this time.

Littlewood features crafting, building, mining, farming, and fishing. Players will meet and make friends along the way who will also live in your town. Fair warning, there is also romance in the game, so you do you. Players will be able to terraform and decorate the exterior of the town; then craft and design the interior of the villagers' houses as well. Dewdrop (the game currency) is earned by selling items via your marketplace, fulfilling villager wants, cooking meals, and so on. Resource and material hunting is a staple in this game so despite that the world has been saved expect more adventures and exploration in Littlewood.


RPG with town-building has a special place in my heart. This genre is also one of the reasons why I have decided to create my own videogame - shameless plug. What is clear is that there is so much to do in Littlewood, not to mention unraveling the story behind the hero which are unlocked events as the game progresses. You start out as having Willow and Dalton, both who have been in your hero party in the past, and they will help you get your town set up. More villagers will start to show up later on.

Tip: No matter how simple it is, adding weather in your game will ALWAYS make your game more dynamic.

Littlewood has its own calendar and events cycling through the four seasons.

You have mail!

Conclusion

Littlewood is an adorable town builder with some RPG action that is easy to pick up. If you're looking to chill, calm those nerves, and quite possibly cool off the brain, Littlewood is for you. I recommend Littlewood and give it a 4 out of 5.
