Transforming Deserts into Blooming Gardens with this Landscaping Survival Game

"Wildmender": A Landscaping Survival Game Where Tending Your Garden is Pure Delight

TOKYO, Jan 22 (News On Japan) - "Wildmender" is a landscaping survival game set in a world that has succumbed to desertification, where players strive to restore and rejuvenate the greenery. It supports multiplayer gameplay, allowing up to four players to cooperate. Players start with a small oasis and gradually expand their greenery, eventually crafting their own beautiful garden.

To achieve this, players must explore the field to collect seeds, useful items, and materials. The world is inhabited by enemies known as "Wraiths," which players may encounter in battle during their travels. Managing food and water is crucial during desert exploration, as the further one travels, the more challenging the management becomes, increasing the survival element of the game.

Returning to one's garden provides a comforting sense of relief. The garden during the day is soothing just to look at, but the night scenery is also recommended for its beautiful, fantastical illumination that invites prolonged admiration. The joy of the game lies in the meticulous progress of garden construction, from laying water channels to planting vegetation.

Cooperative gameplay for up to 4 players. Invite up to three friends online to your garden! Work together to maintain a lush garden. Share resources to survive together and adventure through the lonely desert with friends. Fight against the dangerous Wraiths together. But be careful. More hands to tend the garden means more mouths to feed!

Customize your garden and appearance. Leave it to nature or shape it to your liking. Create structures and tools to decorate and shape the terrain. Try making various things like bridges over canals, pathways dotted with lanterns, plaster walls with gates, magical sigils to revive bees in the garden, and waterfalls flowing into ponds.

Craft a loom to weave a variety of costumes and stylishly traverse the desert.

Features: - Dozens of plant species to cultivate, each with multiple varieties - Over 50 constructible structures to create and manage the perfect garden - More than 75 unlockable perks and ability upgrades - 1-4 player online cooperative multiplayer - Procedurally generated world that offers unique challenges with each replay - Day and night cycle: plants grow under the sun, and spirits roam in the cool night - A variety of costumes to color your character - Adjustable difficulty settings and game modes for flexible gameplay
