Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is a charming adventure game from Prideful Sloth developers for the Nintendo Switch console. The game’s narrative explores an open-world with lush and vibrant settings, while also providing plenty of side quests, crafting, fishing, and other activities to engage players of all ages. Yonder delivers an immersive experience that encourages exploration and creative problem solving. It comes bundled with a vivid storyline told through beautifully crafted characters, making it one of the most captivating adventures available on Nintendo Switch.
At Yonder’s core is a sandbox-style adventure game where players explore the world and take part in a variety of activities. Throughout their journey they’ll face multiple puzzles that require creative problem solving to progress. One key element is finding eight magical sprites scattered across the land, which allows players to remove the mysterious Murk covering each area. Beyond simply discovering these sprites another layer of depth is added when players must use their knowledge and personal resources to actually remove the Murk.
The game’s mechanics are simple enough that veterans and newcomers alike can immediately jump in without too much trouble. Players traverse using standard WASD movement controls as well as different tools for traversal like climbing ropes or gliding with a parachute-like item. Crafting, fishing, and cooking are essential elements for building weapons and items necessary for navigating through different obstacles as well as completing quests.
