We've seen our fair share of Pokémon clones over the past few years, and at Indie Live Expo 2021 there was a new creature collecting game announced.

Palworld has the collecting aspects of Pokémon and you can even fight and breed "Pal". Beyond this, it's a bit wild. In this multiplayer open-world survival crafting game, you can get your "Pal" to farm, work in factories, you can sell them off and even slaughter them to eat...

"You can make Pals fight, breed, help with farming, or work in factories. You can also sell them off or even slaughter them to eat! That however, is forbidden by law."

"This world is full of dangers such as food shortages, harsh weather, and illegal poachers."

You'll even get into firefights with some serious weapons, and use your "Pal" to help you out in the heat of the battle. Here's a look, courtesy of Gematsu:

The game itself is being developed by the studio behind Craftopia (Pocket Pair) and is scheduled to be released in 2022. Right now, it's only been confirmed for Steam, but if we hear anything about a possible Nintendo release (assuming Nintendo allow something like this), we'll be sure to let you know.
