80 Days studio inkle is working on a gorgeous game about hiking in the Scottish Highlands

"In some ways it's very similar to our previous games—it's about travel, it's replayable, and has a strong branching narrative," inkle co-founder Joseph Humfrey writes on the game's development blog, "In other ways, it's very different.

If you, like me, are profoundly intrigued by the phrase "robo-cows" then have I got a game for you: One Lonely Outpost. From the simple concept of "farm life game, but in space" the developers have spun what looks to be a fascinating little twist on the genre with its own unique features and ideas. It's definitely one to watch for fans of Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon as it prepares to release in Late 2021, complete with 4-person cooperative multiplayer.
