HopFrog’s exploration and crafting game, Forager, is a huge hit on PC.

Publisher Humble Bundle has announced that Forager has sold over 150,000 copies on PC since release, and confirmed details of the game’s content roadmap for the coming year.

Officially released last month but in open development for some time, Forager is an exploration and resource management game inspired by the likes of The Legend of Zelda and Stardew Valley.

It’s a super charming game and to our eyes has found its place in a crowded genre through its visual simplicity and frictionless, satisfying gameplay mechanics.

Speaking about the game’s success, creator Mariano Cavallero says:

“I am completely overwhelmed by Forager‘s positive reaction! I always thought my silly little crafting game could be something special, it’s so wholesome and exciting that players around the world seem to agree!”

Over the course of the next year Forager will receive a slew of updates, beginning this month with new weather effects, new game modes, and a range of quality of life and UI changes.

Summer 2019 will bring a new biome, a hard mode, plus new bosses and enemies. Beyond that, Forager will also receive mod support, and multiplayer.

The game has also been a success for its publisher, becoming the fifth game from Humble Bundle to sell over 100,000 copies. Humble brand manager, Connor Bridgeman, says:

“We’re very happy for the success of Forager, HopFrog has put their heart and soul into this game and to see it payoff has been incredible to watch.”

Forager is available now on Steam,and the Humble Store. It will also be released for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch later this year.
