Save the world from waste

In this post, I present to you the indie game No Place Like Home. In this new Early Access title, we play a young woman in an apocalyptic steampunk world that has been abandoned by most of its inhabitants after it was completely cluttered with trash.

What is No Place Like Home?

No Place Like Home is an apocalyptic steampunk adventure RPG in which we, as young woman, use a garbage vacuum cleaner to suck away and recycle humanity’s filth. We build a new home, grow vegetables, and beat up nasty robots to take back the world. No Place Like Home is out on Steam in Early Access since the end of 2020.

Hi there, this is the Zap. In this new quick review format, I’ll introduce you to a new game in three minutes. This time it’s about the indie game “No Place Like Home” by Chicken Launcher and Awaken Realms.

In this cute farming RPG indie game, the story is that in a post-apocalyptic steampunk future, most of humanity has migrated to another planet after the Earth became horribly polluted. Only a very few people have remained and now have to deal with all the garbage of the others. This includes our nameless heroine.

A small treehouse with only a bed, a trash vacuum cleaner, and a shovel are all she has, and so she sets out to make the world around her livable again and create a new home and a better world for herself.

Our heroine discovers and cleans the world, sucking up trash with a vacuum cleaner, knocking away junk and more stubborn chunks of trash with a shovel and pickaxe, discovering old books, scrap metal, seeds, and many other useful things. In the process, robots keep getting in our way, which we have to smash with a few blows of the shovel.

You can gradually create fields and harvest vegetables on them, tame chickens, appease robots and build various buildings, such as a chicken coop, kitchen, recycler, or robot workshop. There are also several people in the world that you can trade with, who teach you some different skills and give you quests. For variety, there are also several worlds that you can unlock one after another.

If you like cute survival and farming games with a bit of adventure, you’ll get some entertaining hours here for a low €3.99, with the prospect of quite a bit more in the future. The developers release regular updates every 1-2 weeks.

No Place Like Home is only at the beginning of its gaming journey, you can already have fun with it, but there are so some rough edges and you notice that much is still missing. So you shouldn’t expect a finished game yet, but there are more worlds, more quests, more skills, and much more planned.
