To meet new Ooblets and have dance battles with them, you need specific items. Some items need to be grown in your farm, while others require to be processed in other facilities.It can all be very confusing, so I thought I'd put everything you need for all the items into one place.

Adorable critter-collector Ooblets is now out in early access

After three years of us cooing over it, Ooblets today launched in early access. To be crudely reductive: it's a bit 'Stardew Valley meets Pokémon, but cutesy'. There we are, growing crops on our little farm and befriending folks in the local town. We're also growing little critters named ooblets, who we raise and train to compete - though rather than bite, claw, electrocute, and…

Ooblets is a sickly sweet Poké-like, but it’s got me hooked

Ooblets is what it looks like. That can be a bit of a cop out as descriptions go, but I saw almost no footage of it before guessing it was a cross between a Harvest Moon farming/fix-up-the-town game and a Pokémon-style monster collector, and so it is.But while both those types of game tend to soak up days of my life and leave me with…

Ooblets launches in early access this summer

Today, after a lengthy stretch of vagueness, developers Glumberland announced that it'll be entering early access this summer. Summer's soon! And I have absolutely no plans for summer. Come have a look in the new trailer below.

Ooblets will actually show you where townsfolk are on the map and that is very important

There are lots of things that look quite promising about Glumberland's cute town sim Ooblets. There's fashion, gardening, dance battles, and house decorating, Here's one more thing to like: a map. More importantly, a map on which you can see the location of the other townsfolk of Badgetown. Don't laugh, I am very serious about how very important this is. Oh also, Glumberland's new developer…

Ooblets might actually arrive this year, developers hint

How long has it been since I first saw gifs of Ooblets—those goofy critters trundling around town behind their awkwardly dancing human friend? RPS first posted about this cute little town sim three years ago. So probably about then, I'd say. I thought it might arrive in 2018. I had hope for 2019 too. According to Glumberland's development update for January, "2020 is the YEAR…

Ooblets developer responds to harassment over timed Epic exclusive

Glumberland's Ben Wasser, one of two people developing Ooblets, has written a response to the wave of harassment that's been crashing over his studio during the past week. It includes numerous examples of the hateful messages they received in response to their announcement that Ooblets would be a timed Epic Store exclusive. The announcement's ill-judged tone meant the team received a disproportionate backlash compared to…

Epic’s CEO shouldn’t be riling the mob going after Ooblets over its Epic exclusivity

As many good-lookin' small-budget games are wont to, Ooblets has signed a timed exclusivity deal with the Epic Games Store in exchange for extra funding. That's common enough that we didn't even post about it. Also disappointingly common is the harrassment which follows, here directed at Glumberland, the tiny two-person development team behind the 'kinda Pokémon with cute dance-offs' game. The studio misjudged the tone…

They’re the names of a selection of Ooblets, the titular cutesie creatures of Glumberland’s upcoming town life indie game.If you’ve seen any of the grassroots marketing behind Ooblets, you already have an idea of the charming,…

Video: The shark RPG and other hidden gems of E3 2018

Now that the festival of bellowing that is E3 2018 has come to an end, we begin the arduous process of making sense of it all. This means sifting through mountains of press releases and trailers to find all the curious games that lurked outside the spotlight glare of the larger publishers. And we find such treats as Maneater (Jaws RPG where you play as…

Ooblets has ditched dogfighting for dance battles

You're about to watch some humans go about their business as they get followed around by adorable tiny animals, occasionally stopping to pet them or dance with them. Don't be fooled. Those animals are out for blood - or at the very least indentured interior design work. That's the subtext I'm picking up: Ooblets is an upcoming game that's ostensibly about farming crops and looking…

Cuteness overwhelming in Ooblets trailer

Every now and then, in this vast hall of GIFs we call the internet, I see the mini-monsters and dancing townsfolk of Ooblets [official site] and it makes me feel good about life. It’s an as-yet-unreleased game of farming, raising creatures, and living among the townsfolk of ‘Hubton’. “It’s sort of like Harvest Moon meets Pokémon meets Animal Crossing meets the weird awkward people we…
