What is DokeV about?

It’s safe to say that one of the things that has drawn people to the game is the bizarre trailer which features everything from casual playground games to battling against dragons whilst flying through a snowstorm.


Described as a “creature-collecting open-world action-adventure,” Pearl Abyss writes that the game is “filled with intriguing stories.” You are tasked with “befriend[ing] the local Dokebi that gain strength from and encourage people’s dreams.”

While that’s all we know at the moment, the devs have confirmed that the game is not an MMO. “DokeV was initially introduced as an MMO, but we decided to move the game in a different direction and it’s now a creature-collecting open world action-adventure,” the devs clarified on Twitter.

So that’s everything you need to know about the wonderfully perplexing DokeV! As more information becomes available we’ll be sure to update this page. In the mean time, check out all of our other release hubs:
