Welcome to The Hollow, a blighted and dying place, and home to the Drakes.
Drake Hollow is an action-adventure game made and published by The Molasses Flood indie studio. Drakes are the vegetable folk native to these parts, and they need your help. They’re hungry, thirsty, and need a place to sleep. They can literally die of boredom. It’s on you to save them. Build gardens to provide them with food, wells for water, and yoga balls and puppet shows to keep them entertained. Even treadmills and solar panels to generate power for Tesla coils and electric fences, as you will quickly see they need some protecting.

- Travel from region to region, season to season, taking the Drakes and their village with you. Each region is over a square mile of territory to explore, dynamically generated and populated with each passing season.
- The Drakes aren’t the only residents of The Hollow – The Feral have overrun the land, looking to shred anything happy or good. Battle them one-on-one with a wide array of weapons ranging from tennis rackets to nail guns, bring your friends to lend a hand, and build your defenses so you can take them out without lifting a finger.
- You must balance your time carefully. What supplies are most crucial at any given moment? What does your village need? Metal from the supply caches to build your defenses, or crystals from the blighted regions to grow your Drakes? Prove that you’ve got what it takes to help the Drakes and take back The Hollow.

Drake Hollow Review
Drake Hollow is a survival, base building game all about helping a cute colony of Drakes thrive in their harsh world. Build and defend villages of vegetable folk from deadly feral beasts in the blighted world of The Hollow. Explore, gather, and fight! You can even invite your friends. Building in this game is your standard fare of collect resources, select structure and create - except here the Drakes do all the heavy lifting. Your job is to gather the materials and design your base. Like other open world builders, there is a "tech tree" that you unlock by expanding your base, which is done by helping your little Drakes grow into big Drakes, which itself is done by exploring the world and finding crystals color coded to your Drake. Each Drake isn't limited to helping out at the base, as each can give a passive buff that will help you in your adventuring. The game has some shortcomings but I don't feel like some of the reviews reflect them properly. Overall, it's an enjoyable experience with people as progress is made together and loot can both be shared through the storage and also kept separate through the player's own inventory.
