Big Fish Games, the developer and publisher of popular casual gaming franchises Cooking Craze and Gummy Drop, has announced the release of Decurse. It is a new mobile title that reinvigorates the farming simulation genre with a magical dream-coloured world filled with fantastical characters and unique quests. These are unlocked by happiness, smiles and customised gameplay. Decurse is available worldwide for both iOS and Android devices. “At Big Fish, our players ‘love for the game’ inspire and drive our development efforts.With Decurse, we challenged ourselves to re-imagine a game experience that’s had a very similar look and feel for a long, long time. We took popular farming sim mechanics that people know and love, like personalization and customization, and set out to blow them out of the park – or barn! We re-imagined farmland as magical islands, livestock as a cast of kooky characters and gameplay immersed in a magical storyline while offering players new ways to craft, build and express themselves inside the game,” said Big Fish general manager and vice president Chris George. In Decurse, the story begins with a magical island that’s been cursed. Players collect magic as currency to ‘decurse’ the land, uncovering secret towns each with its own buildings, recipes, crafting and characters. “Decurse encourages community building, providing players with the opportunity to connect with friends. Players have the option to link to friends, visit their islands and support each other to complete fun tasks that each island has to offer,” George added. Along the way, players can make tasty treats like apple popsicles and bake pies for pandas; trick out homes with snazzy windows and send giant whales and hot air balloons off on resource runs. They can mine for stones to rebuild homes and craft, forge, weave and sew. The game is packed full of items to decorate and customize including sparkling fountains that ooze magic. As players progress, new islands will unlock, each with their own unique set of quests, buildings, recipes, events and characters.
