At first glance, Gemea may seem like quite the lovely place, what with its lush beaches, snow-capped mountains, and everything in-between. But unfortunately, all is not well here as an evil entity – murk, according to the locals – is wreaking havoc across the land. An entity only you possess the ability to vanquish. Only you can save Gemea from certain doom, in Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles! Uh, with the help of the locals, that is…
See, while you may be the hero/protagonist in Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, this task is still simply too much for one person to handle. As such, the best way to go about taking care of business is to, well, get into business with the aforementioned locals, assisting with whatever they may need. And not just to make new friends either, even though that is obviously a neat bonus. No, the main reason for this is pretty much a ‘you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours’ thing: help them out, and they just might part with something super useful in return. Ya never know.
At the heart of Yonder, is a game that delivers a sense of discovery, wrapped in a familiar yet unique adventure.
In no time at all, everything from brewing to cooking, and even fishing, will have become part of your life on this island – all to be a part of an ever-growing community, and of course, to progress that quest of yours. It may seem a bit silly at first, but as you’ll soon discover, there’s simply no other way to go about saving the day in this game, because… [insert clever ‘no man is an island’ reference here].
But seriously, why not treat it as a vacation of sorts, so long as you don’t lose track of the bigger picture? Another thing to keep in mind is how each passing day brings you that much closer to the next seasonal change, and with it, new possibilities! I mean, chances are you’d have a rather hard time to go about fishing or farming in the winter, for example. Or perhaps there is a way? Hard to say as I have yet to experience Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, but it would not surprise me to find its protagonist cable of ice fishing. Not one bit.
