Who’s up for post-apocalyptic punk aesthetics, roguelike shooter mechanics, and classic farm sim gameplay all in one? I don’t know who besides me has been watching the development of Atomicrops closely, but here you go: It’s coming to a full release on May 28th. Atomicrops is developed by Bird Bath Games and published by Raw Fury, who have shown pretty impeccable taste as a publisher so far and whom I am always excited to see another game from. We first called it “an unholy union between Stardew Valley and Nuclear Throne” which is still spot-on a year later. Atomicrops also has excellent music. See exhibit A, announce trailer, for details: 

Atomicrops is a round-based roguelite shooter that requires reflexes and planning to survive. Each day is a single round where you kill enemies, find seets, plant, and water them to harvest for money by day’s end. Each day also ends with a wave survival portion, where ever-larger baddies come for your blood and/or crops, before culminating in a boss battle at the end of each season. The game’s pretty wonderful, honestly, because I really enjoy fighting off waves of giant slugs and gun-totin mutant rabbits. I am also very bad at it, so if anyone knows what happens past Summer then please, no spoilers. The game has been in early access since September 2019.
