Developer Krillbite (Mosaic, Among The Sleep) has recently revealed its next project and since discovering it I can think about little else. It’s not coming out until next year, but the unfortunate result of that is I’ll be thinking about it throughout the next year or so of massive releases. Spider-Man 2? Super Mario Wonder? Alan Wake II? Never heard of them. All I know now is Fruitbus.
The studio calls Fruitbus a “cute culinary adventure, set in an open world where taste is everything,” and the game looks to put players behind the wheel of a food truck and on-foot in first person as they explore an adorable, cartoonish world, grow their business, customise their truck and interact with all manner of animal citizens. It’s slated to launch in 2024 for PC and unannounced console platforms.
Here’s what we know about Fruitbus via its Steam page:
Fruitbus is a cute culinary adventure, set in an open world where taste is everything. Upgrade your trusty truck and visit a whole world of new destinations together.
