With its 2D art style and anthropomorphized animal protagonist, Lonesome Village intrigued us from the first glance. Playing as an adventurous coyote, you wander into a nearby town where, in the midst of celebrating a festival day, all of the villagers just mysteriously vanished. Quickly following the cozy-looking world’s version of Thanos’ snap, a suspicious tower rises out of the ground to loom over the desolate town. In the demo, it’s your job to make your way up the tower by solving interesting puzzles and save the townsfolk. Rescued villagers return to their daily lives as librarians or bankers, opening up new items or social options. Lonesome Village takes inspiration from series like Zelda and Animal Crossing, so if a combo of those two things sounds like your jam, check out this demo.
