Yes, we know what you're thinking. Forager looks like Indie Games: The Indie Game, doesn't it? Well, firstly, what's wrong with that, and secondly, that description doesn't do the title justice. It launched to high acclaim on PC earlier in the year, with many players telling of the game's addictive qualities.
Forager is a game all about looting for resources, crafting things to help you out, and expanding your play space. Once you've made enough money from your escapades, you'll be able to purchase a new plot of land, and this is part of what makes the game interesting. Crafting materials spawn at random on each square, meaning you'll never be sure where to find what you need. This pushes you to explore old areas as well as new ones, but there's more to the game than just hitting things with a pickaxe. Some areas will have dungeons to explore, while others will introduce NPCs with quests or environmental puzzles to solve.
It sounds exactly like the kind of game you could sink hours into without even realising it. Obviously, if you've grown weary of looting and crafting mechanics, Forager probably isn't going to change your mind. It's out on PlayStation 4 on 30th July 2019.
