Disney Meets Stardew Valley In Disney Dreamlight Valley

Have you ever wanted to help bring a desolate Disney world back to its full potential? No, we’ve not invented a time machine to see the future of the popular theme park. We have however seen the trailer for Disney Dreamlight Valley.

The brand new game is a life-simulation game where you can create your own avatar and set forth on a journey with some of Disney and Pixar’s most loved characters.

The press release for the game tells us that the game takes place in the dream world of Dreamlight Valley. Whilst you’re there you must work on restoring the once idyllic village that is now full of something called “Night Thorns”. This happened due to a mysterious event called “The Forgetting”.

It all sounds very ominous. Whilst you play through the game you’ll uncover mysterious secrets that led you to the world and explore various realms that are all inspired by Disney and Pixar classics. All of this whilst helping the iconic inhabitants of the town recover their lost memories (OK now it’s all sounding a bit Kingdom Hearts).

What Characters Are In The Game?

During the game you’ll get to meet and build friendships with numerous characters from the likes of Mickey & Friends, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Moana, Toy Story and more (we definitely saw Stitch and Sully!)

Not only will there be story arcs but there will be activities to take part in too. The press release tells us that activities include “whipping up a delectable Disney-themed dishes alongside Remy from Disney and Pixar’s Ratatouille inside of your own village restaurant, fishing at the fishing hole with Goofy, or growing vegetables from Wall•E’s garden patch.”
