User Descriptions

The game is set in an open world populated with animal-like creatures called "Pals", which players can battle and capture to use for base building, traversal, and combat. It was announced in 2021 and launched through early access for Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S in January 2024. The game's comedic premise, which involves using firearms and equipping Pals with them, has earned it the nickname "Pokémon with guns". It was generally well received, with praise for its gameplay, content, and satirical premise, but criticism for its reliance on shock humor and use of unoriginal designs and mechanics. Palworld sold eight million units in its first six days of early access and reached over two million concurrent players on Steam, making it the second-highest played game of all time on the platform. In Palworld, players control a customizable avatar from a third-person perspective and explore the open-world Palpagos Islands. Unlocks through a technology tree allow the player to craft and use weapons, structures, and decorations. The islands are inhabited by over 100 creatures called Pals, which players directly engage in combat with to weaken and then capture using "Pal Spheres". Each Pal has a Partner Skill, allowing further utility by using them as weapons or mounts. The game's antagonists include various factions, such as the Rayne Syndicate criminal organization, the Free Pal Alliance liberation movement, the Brothers of the Eternal Pyre fanatical group, the police-like Palpagos Islands Defense Force, and the Pal Genetic Research Unit. The factions include human NPCs who occasionally spawn in the world, either patrolling or battling each other, who are hostile to the player and can fight them with weapons. The game features a wanted level system; if the player commits a crime, usually against humans, other human NPCs will become hostile and defense force troopers will spawn to attack them until they are killed or evade their pursuers. Palworld is being developed and published by Pocket Pair, an independent company based in Shinagawa, Tokyo. According to CEO Takuro Mizobe, the concept of Palworld is based on Ark: Survival Evolved, which also had monster companions in dinosaurs; the survival mechanics and in-game tasks were inspired by Rust. The game uses more original assets than Craftopia, which proved to be challenging for the team. Early in development, it was decided to move Palworld from Unity, which powered Pocket Pair's earlier projects, to Unreal Engine 4, as they decided it was more suitable for heavier open-world games. When early access began, the game was estimated to be 60% complete. In total, the budget exceeded 1 billion yen, and the company hired over 40 additional employees.
