And again, the only developer with bright ideas came to the aid of the gaming community.
Can one developer or a team of a couple of people release a successful game? Undoubtedly. And one that would make it a revered classic, the standard of the genre, the game of a generation? Yes. Sometimes. Raft, Celeste, Kenshi, Terraria, Stardew Valley and some other projects have confirmed this.
A new applicant was found for a similar status – the farmer simulator Dinkum . Like the games listed above, this one was created by the efforts of one person. As usual, fans can’t even unambiguously define the genre, calling the project a mixture of Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing and even Minecraft.
All this did not prevent Dinkum collect thousands of positive reviews, and stable online above 10 thousand players. Interest in the game has been holding for more than a week and does not show a downward trend.
Players obviously enjoy the atmosphere, the graphics, and the slow paced gameplay with a significant focus on farming. Only co-op without joint progress causes serious criticism, as well as a number of other trifles, but there is no doubt that Dinkum will remain with us for many years.
