game release date for PC:
Mushrooms: Forest Walker is a simulation game, in which we play the role of a mushroom picker. The game enables us to visit several different continents and "hunt" for various species of mushrooms. We will also find a number of additional mechanics, thanks to which the fun becomes even more interesting. The creation and publishing of this title was the responsibility of the independent studio SimFabric (known, among others, from Farm&Fix 2020 and ElectriX).
In Mushrooms: Forest Walker we observe the action from first-person perspective. Our task is to collect mushrooms in forests located on almost all continents: Europe, North America, Asia, South America and Africa. The game offers several hundred different species of mushrooms, which are described in a very extensive encyclopedia (the catalogue has over 500 pages!).
It is worth noting that the forests that we will visit in Mushrooms are not a peaceful and idyllic place - they can be dangerous. In order to survive, we need to display a variety of skills. The devs have also implemented a crafting system, in which we use special, rare types of fungi with magical properties.
The available capabilities are partly dependent on the chosen character, as SimFabric's work enables us to play as one of four different heroes: Cowgirl (moves fast and can find the biggest mushrooms in the forest), Redneck (has a spear and ability to track animals and other collectors), Soldier (is equipped with a firearm and can use camouflage) and Baba (knows how to prepare potions and traps).
The fun is also enriched by meetings with NPCs, who can offer us special tasks and challenges, thanks to which we gain new items and recipes. In the game we will find dozens of such characters, often with characteristic names and stories.
Mushrooms: Forest Walker can be played solo or with others. For single player fans, the game offers a story campaign, and for those who prefer multiplayer modes, there is a choice between a four-person cooperation (each person plays a different character) and... a mushroom battle royale.
Mushrooms: Forest Walker features attractive three-dimensional visuals, in which the creators tried to reproduce realistically what we know from real world - both the character models and the game environment present high level of quality. Special attention should be paid to the flora - trees, grass and, above all, the mushrooms we collect, which have been designed in great detail. The lighting system also presents itself reliably.
