Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin’ is an action role-playing simulation video game developed by Edelweiss and published by Marvelous. The spoilt harvest goddess Sakuna finds herself banished from her opulent celestial home to an island overrun with frightening demons. In the untamed wilderness, she must rediscover her birthright as the daughter of a warrior god and harvest goddess by weathering the elements, fighting monsters, and cultivating rice, the source of her power.
By her side among the dangers of the wilderness is her guardian Tama, and a group of outcast humans. Together, these unlikely companions must join hands to tame both the soil and the demons of Hinoe Island.
Developed by Edelweiss, the indie team behind the critically acclaimed ‘Astebreed’, ‘Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin’ combines the fun chaos of side-scrolling action with deep crafting and rice cultivation in a moving tale about finding one's place in the world.
Use farm tools as weapons, chain together quick, heavy, and special attacks to take down demonic beasts, while mastering the magical ‘divine raiment’. These skills will be essential to grapple distant platforms, evade danger, and overcome powerful enemies.
Learn the ancient art of agriculture by following detailed steps from planting to harvesting to cultivate the perfect crop through 3D simulation-style gameplay.
As a harvest goddess, Sakuna’s strength grows with each rice crop, with attributes such as aesthetic and flavor directly correlating to her combat abilities. This game is an exciting combination of cozy games and combat games!
Sakuna’s mortal companions make weapons, armor, and meals for her using the materials and ingredients she gathers on her adventures, and completing quests for them will unlock even more options with their gratitude.
