    Have you ever wanted to run your very own shop? That’s exactly what you do in Cozy Keep by developer Unbossed Games. You’re a shopkeeper in a fantastical realm where you’ll engage with many aspects that come with running a shop. Trade with other merchants, deal with thieves, take care of customers, pay taxes (or maybe don’t, your choice), and keep your shop stocked with the best items. Of course, you want to run a prosperous business, so buy low and sell high! 

    Start your shopkeeping adventure with a new to you building! It needs a little cleaning and some furniture, but it’s all yours. Add some decorations to make the place more appealing, too. You aren’t stuck just running your shop, though. Cozy Keep offers much more variety to your gaming day through crafting, hunting, fishing, exploring, and resource gathering. You even get to run a farm! The items you gather, the stuff you craft, and the crops you grow can all be put up for sale in your shop or used for your survival. Nothing goes to waste here. 

    Release Date

    Cozy Keep is listed on Steam, but has no release date available. You can add it to your Wishlist, though, and check out the demo! 

    Wonder Wandelier is an adorable shop-keeping sim where you craft and sell wands!

    Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Teatopia by developer Yixin Games, where you run your own farm in an environment full of Chinese culture and beautiful designs. Turn your overgrown farm into a haven for crops. Care for a variety of animals, from livestock to pets. Cook some exquisite meals and teas. Plus, immerse yourself in a vibrant community while discovering the secrets to the underworld’s Ghost Market. 

    Teatopia follows the classic farming sim formula, where you start out on a farm that’s overgrown with wild weeds and tremendous trees. Of course, you’ll work hard to clear these obstacles in order to free up space for your crops. Build sheds to care for livestock and even breed them. They’ll produce products like eggs and milk for you. But you can also have an animal companion, like a cat or dog. The pets find treasures for you if you develop a deep bond!

    Explore the secrets of traditional Chinese cooking that Teatopia has to offer by whipping up delicious recipes you acquire from all over. You even manage your own tea plantation and create exquisite teas. And of course, you get to explore the East and West urban areas, where you’ll find different attractions and vibrant characters. Plus, the Ghost Market is an intriguing place to wander! This enchanting underworld is where fairies and humans converge, but it also has some unique products for sale.

    In Bloody Hell Hotel by developer Unfold Games, you play as a vampire who’s just woken up from a coma that’s lasted centuries. Upon waking, you find your grand estate is in ruins. You decide to renovate it and turn it into a functioning hotel! That’s no easy task, of course. Times are tough and resources are scarce, plus you being a blood-thirsty vampire isn’t exactly helpful with customer satisfaction. But none of that will stop you! 

    Beneath your estate is a crypt and cave system. They’re the perfect spot to forage, farm, and craft! Bloody Hell Hotel has customers that expect high-quality room service, which you can give them by gathering mushrooms, milking the undead cow, and collecting eggs from zombie chickens. Prepare tasty dishes for your guests and serve them to meet their satisfaction. Use your vampire powers to clean up the run-down estate. Then, upgrade, decorate, and furnish the hotel to make it more inviting for customers. Even hire staff to help you throughout the hotel. And if there’s a demanding guest you don’t want to serve, eat them! You’re a vampire, after all. Don’t forget to head down to the crypt to craft some weapons, and set out on a journey through the dungeons to earn some resources and upgrades for the hotel! 

    Release Date

    Bloody Hell Hotel is coming to Steam, but has no release date yet.

    We’re another week closer to Christmas and I can’t wait! I love going around the neighborhood looking at people’s decorations. I think that’s part of why ACNH having lights in trees feels so satisfying to me. What else is super exciting about the Christmas season, is the new gaming systems and games you get! And with Steam Decks being fairly popular, what better way to celebrate the approach of the holiday with some gift ideas for that system? 

    The following list only features games that have been Steam Deck verified, to save the gamer in your life some troubles and heartache!

    My Time at Sandrock

    My Time at Sandrock is the long awaited sequel to My Time at Portia. And just like the prequel, this one takes place in a post-apocalyptic world 330 years after the Day of Calamity destroyed a lot of modern technology. You accept the role as a builder of Sandrock, a desert community. Gather resources to build machines, befriend locals, fight enemies, and lead the town to economic prosperity! Uncover the backstories for over 30 NPCs while you forge friendships with them. Complete side quests, play fun minigames, and even team up with a friend to play the game together! 

    APICO

    APICO is a lovely game where you leave your boring city job and return to Port APICO, where you grew up, and return to your beekeeping roots. The APICO islands feature a set of lush, beautiful environments for you to explore. Each biome has its own breed of bees for you to discover. Gather resources to use in your studies or crafting. Make and sell Apicola (honey) and other beekeeping items you will discover. Play fun beekeeping minigames, without the stings! More importantly, breed different cross breeds of bees and discover 30 new species to help repopulate the APICO islands with. Plus, uncover the secrets of the islands while you explore. 

    I even have a review of APICO here, if you want more information!

    Cornucopia

    Cornucopia offers the same comfortable features players have grown to love from the farming game genre, but in a lovely 2.5D pixel art style. You plant 52 types of fruit trees, 15 types of berry bushes, and grow 52 different crops, including their different artisan varieties. Sell crops or cook them up in one of 200 different recipes! There’s also logging, fishing, mining, and pet breeding to occupy your days. Also enter the pets into competitive races or use them to help you fight monsters. Then, kick back and relax with some crafting and decorating.  Unlock furniture and decorations to turn your farm into your favorite getaway. Make friends with Cornucopia’s NPCs, too. Who knows, maybe one of the over 47 NPCs will catch your fancy! Romance them, go on dates, and unlock their romantic cut scenes. Even marry one, start a family, and decorate their room in your house. 

    While the Iron’s Hot

    Play as a simple journeyman blacksmith in While the Iron’s Hot. You’re looking to become a master blacksmith. This game features an exciting combat-free experience. Journey to the mystical lands of Ellian where you’ll meet a cast of quirky characters. Explore tunnels full of puzzles and resources. Master every step of the blacksmithing process. Smelt ore, turn metal into ingots, and shape them into useful items. Use your skills to repair machinery to open up new areas to explore. Craft equipment that helps you explore new regions. Even work hard to restore the defunct blacksmithing town of Stal. Revitalizing the village just might prove to Eillian’s artisans that you’re worthy of being a master blacksmith!

    Loddlenaut

    In Loddlenaut, you play as an interstellar custodian who has been hired by the spacefaring mega corporation GUPPI to clean up their mess. They’ve inundated GUP-14 with pollution, and want you to restore the planet. This is an open-world ocean adventure where you’ll get to explore this beautiful alien planet, along with the corporate ruins of GUPPI. You’ll find remnants of their buildings, ships, and machinery that have all sunken to the bottom of the game’s ocean. Use your bubble gun, clean up the trash, remove oil spills, and uncover clues about the past inhabitants. Unlock better gadgets to help you clean up different types of ocean pollution. Recycle the trash you collect and use it to craft items. Even befriend cute little axolotl-looking creatures called loddles!

    Solarpunk is a first person game that you can play solo or together with friends. While it is an open-world crafting survival, it’s also a cozy adventure full of resource gathering, building, exploring, crafting, and farming. Harness the power of sunlight, water, and wind to automate your homesteading processes. 

    Take advantage of the modular building components to build the home of your dreams. Build your floor plan from scratch by placing each floor tile. Set up walls, windows, doors, and roofs to complete the plan. Add stairs for a multi-story set-up! Solarpunk also has a variety of decorations for you to use to create the coziest home possible. Then, you can place farm plots to grow your own fruits and vegetables to consume. Each crop satisfies a different amount of hunger, so growing a variety of them can be useful. You can also trade your bounty to the merchant for other goods. 

    Don’t forget to build your own airship so you can explore Solarpunk’s numerous sky islands. You’ll find caves, mountains, lakes, and rivers across the world. Different resources can be found on different islands, too. Or if you’re more of the farmer type, raise and breed different animals. Treat them well, and those animals will reward you with resources! There’s no exploitation here, only coexistence. So be sure to provide them with enough food, water, and space. 

    Coming Soon

    You can find Solarpunk on Steam where you can add it to your Wishlist. There is no official release date listed yet.

    Loftia has some promise for a cozy MMO, also with solarpunk elements like harnessing alternative energy sources!
