Yonder shipwrecks players on the vast island of Gemea, a land enshrouded in an evil murk. By exploring the land, joining forces with the locals and contributing to their community through optional talents like farming, crafting, cooking, fishing and brewing, adventurers can help the island flourish.
Yonder (not to be confused with Wander) is an open-world adventure game for both the PlayStation 4 and PC that takes place on a large island known as Gemea. This island is separated into eight different locales, each with their own unique aesthetic and wildlife. While it’s not been shown in the trailer, I hope that the transitions between each region feel relatively seamless and believable, as I’d hate for the game to feel as if it’s simply been cobbled together in a haphazard manner. I find that seamless transitioning between biomes and locales is especially important in an open-world title, as it lends a level of believability to the game’s overall environment.
In Yonder, the player will be able to contribute to Gemea and its people by partaking in various activities such as farming, cooking, fishing and even forming relationships with others. Not only that, but they can explore the island in order to both uncover its mysteries and to dispel an evil murk that has begun to plunge its kind-hearted inhabitants into despair.
