Description

Set in a universe ruled by cute animals, the game takes place on the Island of Snacko, an island known in the past for its rich natural resources and bountiful farming town. Abandoned after a mysterious event causes Miasma to overrun the island, corrupting the native creatures and forcing it's animal inhabitants to leave. Excited by the challenge of returning the island back to it's former glory, you set on uncovering the source of evil, leaving your cushy job behind on the mainland and traveling to Snacko Island to begin your new life. Play as a cat as you traverse this new land with your best friend. What will you do on the Island of Snacko?

History

Snacko began as a fun side project that soon became more. Created with the desire to bring a world where cats rule the land to life, development started briefly in May 2018 as an adventure game, inspired by older Legend of Zelda titles. As time went on, farming mechanics and other RPG-like elements were added, bringing the game more to what it is like today. In November, the team decided to rework the entire game, from aesthetics, to story, to gameplay. Those changes persist today, and built the foundation in which Snacko will continue iterating on in the future.
