REKA: A Slavic folklore inspired base-building game
REKA is an upcoming game from Emberstorm Entertainment, that's being published by indie publisher Fireshine Games who released titles such as KeyWe and Core Keeper.
In REKA you will start your life as a travelling witch, traversing central Europe with your walking cottage. Yes, a walking cottage.
The game's protagonist can be said to have been heavily inspired by Slavic folklore figure, Baba Yaga, who notably has a forest hut that stands on chicken legs.
You'll roam forests and swamps, collect herbs, craft magical supplies, and decorate and build your ever-growing cottage. You can make the mystical dwelling your own with new crafting stations, furniture, decorations, and even in how you expand the building.
Live out your witchy dreams and craft medicine to aid local villagers, discover fantastical locations, catalogue your numerous plant and ingredient findings, and look out for the creatures of the land.
The game is set to release on Steam in 2024, so you have time to start planning out your ideal 19th century rural European home!
