XSEED Games to Publish Supernatural Life

Sim Title Moonlight Peaks in 2026

Developer Little Chicken Embraces the Vampire Lifestyle with Upcoming Simulation Game Blending Farming, Crafting, Mystery, and Romance; Marvelous Europe to Publish in Europe

TORRANCE, Calif., — May 9, 2024 — XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced an agreement with Dutch developers Little Chicken to publish their in-development supernatural life sim title Moonlight Peaks in North America in 2026. Sister company Marvelous Europe jointly announced that they will publish the title in Europe, targeting a simultaneous release. Moonlight Peaks will join the growing library of third-party indie titles published by XSEED Games, complementing their internally developed catalog of titles by Marvelous Inc.

We always look for projects that offer our audience diverse new titles with our indie publishing efforts, but this time we’ve found a project that’s much closer to home,” said Kenji Hosoi, Executive Vice President of XSEED Games. “Moonlight Peaks is a supernatural fit given our deep experience with the farming/life sim genre, and we look forward to working with the team at Little Chicken to bring their game to life, and our fans!

Moonlight Peaks takes place in its titular town, home to vampires, werewolves, mermaids, and other supernatural denizens who mostly come out at night—where the unnatural is the norm. As the grown-up progeny of Count Dracula, players will have to prove to their skeptical father that an (un-)life of compassion is possible, even for the undead. While players design their perfect vampire lair and learn the art of farming magical crops and witchcraft, they’ll get to know the eclectic mix of human and supernatural residents that also call Moonlight Peaks home, and maybe even find their eternal love! More information about the setting and features of Moonlight Peaks will be revealed at a later date, but players can download a new demo on PC right now for a glimpse at the haunted haven that awaits.

Partnering with Marvelous and their group of companies for a worldwide release was an opportunity we were excited to accept,” said Yannis Bolman, President of Little Chicken Game Company. “As pioneers in the farming and life-sim genre with Story of Seasons and then the Rune Factory series, we were thrilled to be invited into their family. Moonlight Peaks will fit seamlessly into their publishing portfolio, and we hope to introduce fans of those series to our own innovative and unique ideas for the genre.
