The Cute World of Ooblets Debuts Just Before E3 Kicks Off

We always love seeing indie games make their debut at places, and this time around we got to see Ooblets debut at the PC Gaming Show. This game is kinda cute and cuddly as you're basically farming creatures for a living, and then living with them and having them around as pets. It's really funky to see in the trailer below, but the game feels like it has a lot of heart. Especially when you realize it was developed by two whole people. We have the full game description for you as well as some of the stuff you can do highlighted from their Steam page. No official release date was given, but the game will be coming to PC and Xbox One sometime this year.
