Cherrypick Games has announced a Kingdoms: Merge & Build release date, alongside the reveal of the new game. Adding to the long list of Apple Arcade games next month, the new sim has cartoony graphics and promises “a soothing merge-2 experience that will captivate you with its simplistic yet well-thought-out storyline and mechanics.”

Charged with leading a kingdom, you need to work as architect and leader, building out the town and looking after the townsfolk. It’s a self-described “laid-back puzzle game”, with a simple storyline and user interface to keep everything nice and chill.

The gameplay revolves around merging different items together to discover resources, while various quests move you through the storyline and give you new buildings, characters, and landmarks. As expected from a mobile title, there are also various events with global goals, bringing different players together from around the world.
