Play OverviewPlay Overview

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles (2017) is an adventure where you explore a world seeking out and collecting magical creatures, known as sprites, to banish an ominous shroud known as the Murk. As you do this, you make your way in the world, farming, fishing, and crafting while exploring the island.

The island features eight biomes, including tropical beaches and snowy mountains. As time passes in the game, the world's seasons change. It also features a dynamic weather system and a day-night cycle.

It's an unusual game because of your impact on the land. You can plant an acorn and return years later to find a tree. There is no need to level up because there are no levels, you don't need to worry about health because there is nothing to fight. You can wander unrestricted around the world. You can take it at your own pace and without pressure or drive to move on until you are ready.
