    If you haven’t kept an eye on Echoes of the Plum Grove by developer Unwound Games, you should check it out now! In this charming game, you start a brand new life in Honeywood. There, you’re given a plot of land after you’ve washed up on the shores of the island. It’s up to you to turn that plot into a functional, prosperous farm. Of course, there’s much more to the game than just farming! 

    Echoes of the Plum Grove is a casual, cozy farm simulator where your decisions directly influence your gameplay. What you plant on the farm, the items you stock up on to survive winter, and the friends you make determine the way Honeywood will develop. You can even make enemies! Of course, survival is your number one priority, but don’t forget to take time to indulge in the festivities the town has to offer. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, after all. And unlike other farm sims, there’s a generational aspect to this game. You can get married, have children, and when your character dies, you can continue the game playing as one of your children or other relatives. This lends a fun and fresh element to the game you don’t often see! 

    Release Date

    Echoes of the Plum Grove has finally been released on Steam, too!  It’s even on sale for 10% off until May 6th, so if you’ve been eyeing this game, now’s a great time to pick it up. 

    Cozy Crest is a unique farming simulator to keep an eye on!

    Cornucopia by developer Subconscious Games is a 2.5D pixel graphic farming sim with a lot of personality. You inherit tools and a farm, and are left to make it a thriving operation. What makes this game stand out from other farm sims, though? Well, quite a few things, actually. There is an in-depth soil and compost system and pets help you with interactions and you can enter them into races. There are different minigames to engage with, as well as over 200 recipes to cook. This delightful farm sim has taken a step beyond just simple farming, and now it’s added a great new update! 

    The Big Farm Expansion

    Now your lovely farm has been beautifully revamped to feature a pond, bridge, and relocated the storage shed. Cornucopia has also expanded the farm’s area so you have more space to realize your farming dreams. There’s also a new quest for you and Rufus to explore that will double your soil areas to allow you more crop growing space! The update even lets you discover new shortcuts and layouts around your farm that helps streamline your farming experience. 

    Even the NPCs in Cornucopia get a fresh new interaction update! They now have overhead displays when you approach them that give you information on your relationship with them. This lets you better plan those special moments! Even better than that, though, is the added ability to remap keys on the keyboard or remap your controller binds. So, now you can play in the best way that suits you! And of course there has been polishing and bug fixing going on as well. 

    Release Date

    You can get Cornucopia now on Steam, and the Big Farm Expansion Update went live a few days ago!

    I recently wrote a review for Spirittea, which is a lovely cozy game where you run a bath house for spirits instead of the usual farming that’s taken over the cozy genre. Overall, I enjoyed the game as the characters are fun and unique, the spirits add a sense of levity (especially your guide Wonyan), and the art is pretty. I’m really excited that there’s a new update for it called the” SpecQUACKular Update”! 

    This fun new “SpecQUACKular Update” adds a few fun new things, plus fixes a bunch of bugs! Spirittea now has ducks, which I’m sure you could guess from the name of the update. The ducks can swim around the baths in the bath house, eating the algae that forms. So, not only are they cute, but they’re helpful too! There’s also a new vendor who will roll into town every once in a while carrying new items to sell. Seasonal mechanics are now present in the bath house, too. Depending on the seasons, the baths will fill with algae (hence the ducks), ice over, or fill with fallen leaves. You need to keep the baths clean and employ the new bath heaters! Bruce has new animations, and the fishing pole has a reticle so it’s easier to see where you’ve thrown your line. 

    Bug Fixes

    Fixed error where items could be lost by placing them on shelves and tables

    Fixed issues with items disappearing within inventory

    Fixed issue where NPC’s would disappear behind the restaurant

    Fixed bug where NPC’s would become stuck on a path upon reload

    Fixed issue with Quill where on Saturday nights at the food stall he would ask if you want to stop hanging out with him

    Issue fixed with NPC’s appearing on the map at a certain location but them actually not being there

    Fixed issue where NPC’s couldn’t be found during tutorial quests whilst with Amelia if you had quit to main menu mid game

    Fixed multiple issues in Miko’s quest around the mysterious rabbit and cake

    Fixed issues with a softlock during Leigh’s quest if you spoke to the spirit behind the canvas

    Doubled ugligrass spawn rate

    Fixed issue with Clarence’s quest where the statues wouldn’t come back if you left the room

    Fixed issues with the boar where they could hit the player when they were passing into another room

    You can find Spirittea on Steam, Switch, and Xbox now!
