    Begin your new life as Chief Farmer in Sky Harvest by Hamzah Kirmani. Your grandfather once held that title, and excelled at the job. Now it’s your turn to honor his legacy. Play as Zach or Zoya and work hard to transform the floating sky island from an overgrown mess into a lush farm full of produce. However, farming isn’t all you’ll do! 

    Sky Harvest is an open-world adventure game that takes place in the whimsical town of Magica. There, you’ll rebuild your floating sky island farm, but you’ll run your own little bistro. Cook tasty dishes for your customers, or even just for the love of cooking. Forge friendships with the locals to unlock unique perks. Plus, complete quests or go fishing! You can even equip your trusty jetpack to explore the far reaches of Magica to uncover secrets and simply explore.

    Release Date

    Sky Harvest is set to release on Steam sometime in 2025. There is currently a demo available, and you can add it to your Wishlist now!

    Simpler Times is an interactive meditation experience by developer stoneskip. that promises beautifully poignant moments. You play as Taina, who is getting ready to move out of her childhood home to begin the next exciting chapter of her life. The game takes place in your childhood bedroom as you relive memories and learn how Taina became the creative and expressive person she is today! 

    This is another game perfect for the super casual gamer as there are no timers, no scores, no combat, and no anxiety-inducing scenarios. Simpler Times offers a reflective, contemplative story experience instead. Listen to music, paint, watch the world outside your window, read, and solve notes at your own pace. Each object in the room has a story to tell about the past, a story that takes place over 10 years and in four different months and seasons. There’s even a lovely lo-fi soundtrack to accompany you through your observations and puzzles. 

    Release Date

    Simpler Times is set to release on Steam, though there is no release date available. There is a demo to try out, though!

    The atmosphere of this game reminds me of Behind The Frame!

    Set off on a single-player, top-down adventure through a gorgeously crafted world in Cozy Caravan. Explore picturesque landscapes via your bee-drawn (no trusty horse steed here!) caravan. With your best friend Bubba by your side, set up a mobile market in each town and hamlet you come across.  Trade with the locals to earn some money, and even help them out a little! You might need to give someone a ride in your caravan, or pick the carrots from their garden. Whatever needs to be done, you’ll deepen your connection with each character as well as learn their stories. It’s not all work and no play, though! Some of the townspeople will want to just relax and participate in some fun activities with you. 

    Release Date

    Cozy Caravan is coming to Steam sometime. There is no listed release date!

    Your farm in Peppermint Falls by JellyFrog Games is like no other farm you’ve encountered. You’ll grow blueberry muffins, harvest gummy bears from bushes, and nurture ice cream in the winter seasons. Raise farm animals like cows that produce strawberry milk and collect chocolate eggs from your chickens. The town is small, but cozy, and offers much more to do than just farming, too. Cook delicious meals, experiment with alchemy, go mining for resources, or even fish for some fun aquatic creatures. You can even battle monsters or work in the town’s cafe! Don’t forget to forge relationships with the townspeople, too. Learn their backgrounds and earn some great friendships, or even start a family with someone.

    When you tire of the small town, set out on an adventure to explore the wide world of Peppermint Falls. Your house, which is made of pancakes, can walk, and will ferry you around the different biomes of the world! It’ll accompany you to the furthest corners of the world and patiently wait for you to complete your adventures. It’ll even sprout new rooms from time to time. While exploring, perhaps you can uncover what happened to the original inhabitants. The world used to be ordinary and not covered in confectionary creatures, after all.

    Release Date

    Peppermint Falls is coming to Steam sometime soon. Add it to your Wishlist now!
