Lovely voxel chicken sim Fugl is now a stunning voxel fish, seal, dolphin and different underwater creature sim, too. The little voxel relax-o-thing from Team Fugl continues to be in early entry as a result of they simply can’t appear to cease including issues. Today’s Underwater Update does what it says on the tin, and allows you to discover beneath the waves and thru underwater caverns as you see match. The waters of its many biomes are populated by 42 new creatures, most of which may be reworked into simply by flying near. Take a peek at a number of the sea-life within the little replace trailer under.
Fugl has been round for a pair years now, in a single type or one other, and Pip was positively besotted with it. Having had an opportunity to attempt it for myself (wrapped in a blanket and armed with a mug of scorching chocolate to chase away the winter chill) I can see why. It’s instantly enjoyable. Flying round is enjoyable and intuitive, and swooping by way of gaps within the rocks or between bushes is a thrill. And in case you handle to crash, you simply go comically ragdoll for a second, and might proper your self when you’ve bought some strong floor below your ft. Swimming is simply as accessible and easy. The underwater environments don’t provide practically as a lot range of wildlife because the floor and skies, however it’s good to discover underwater caverns.
If I needed to degree any critique at this replace, it’s that it’s typically a bit difficult to remain underwater. Getting down there’s straightforward sufficient – fly up excessive, tuck in your wings and dive – however you’ll find yourself floating to the floor until you rework into one thing aquatic. Unfortunately, transformation requires you to fly (or swim) near the creature you wish to be, and the reflective floor of the water makes selecting out a goal below the waves troublesome. Oh, and leaping out onto land as a seal simply noticed me helplessly caught, as an alternative of with the ability to flop adorably throughout the ice on my stomach. So, two small grumbles then.
This replace additionally features a new Frost biome with some animals of its personal (together with reindeer, apparently), reworked floor motion for birds/legged animals and a extra detailed soundscape for caves, tunnels and below the waves. It’s only a massive ol’ ball of rest, and there’s VR help due by the point Fugl leaves early entry later this yr. Oh, and you can also make your personal biomes and animals too and share them within the Steam Workshop, simply in case there wasn’t sufficient right here to appease your soul.
