    This is a game which taught me to love the feeling of being lost, and I’m sure it’s one I will return to for a long time.

    Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles does its best to present you with a steady stream of breathtaking vistas, serene escapes and idyllic moments that snap to a picture frame with flawless ease. The core game has all of its slight flaws that came with the other versions, but I found that taking time to frame and save some of what I saw gave me a deeper appreciation of Yonder’s many high points.

    They say that time flies, but Yonder: The Cloud Catcher steals you the one you’ve got left. The lands of Gemea will absorb with its addictive system based on professions, a solid structure and an amazing landscape. Despite its somewhat poor design and technical quality below expectations, this game will make you fly.

    ​Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles has a charming world to show in its different biomes. It's a wonderful way to practice some escapism but ultimately feels like something is missing to be a compelling videogame.

    Yonder doesn’t have quite the same lasting power that other crafting-focused games may have, but makes its experience notable with great presentation. It’s a game that welcomes players into its laid-back and relaxing atmosphere. For those just wanting to spend some time chilling out and exploring in a great-looking world, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is certainly one to recommend.

    I enjoyed Yonder more than I otherwise might have because I played it at just the right moment — it served as a palate cleanser after one of the year’s bloodier games. That said, I still found Yonder to be a peaceful delight despite its shortcomings.

    While it has shallow gameplay systems and minimal story, Yonder is a pleasant place to unwind and pass the time.

    I honestly have no idea how I'll ever be able to stop playing this gem of a game, especially since I just found out about it a week beforeI honestly have no idea how I'll ever be able to stop playing this gem of a game, especially since I just found out about it a week before it's release date in the Nintendo eShop for the Switch. Naturally, I watched a few beginning gameplays an was instantly sold. Beautiful graphics, soothing audio, and no rush or combat. If you like for your games to relax you, this is the perfect game!

    I had an idea what I was getting into playing this game. It is what I expected. It is a mixture of Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon. PeopleI had an idea what I was getting into playing this game. It is what I expected. It is a mixture of Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon. People complain that it lacks content or combat. That is not the point of the game. It's all about exploration and farming. I enjoy this game. Hopefully it will hold me over until Animal Crossing arrives on the Switch. Overall, this is a great game with gorgeous visuals! Expand
