    In Cozy Grove, you play as a Spirit Scout who lives on an ever-changing island. As a scout, you spend your days wandering the island, finding hidden secrets, and helping out the inhabitants. Plus, you can go fishing, befriend the locals, and collect spirit animals. This beautifully hand-drawn game takes after Animal Crossing with its real time sync. You can complete about an hour’s worth new quest content each day, then kick back and relax with some fishing or decorating. It’s a super cozy, laid-back gaming experience. 

    And the developers Spry Fox LLC have an equally cozy new sequel out now! Cozy Grove: Camp Spirit is an equally gorgeous hand-drawn game with new fun. You’re still on a lovely little island, but now you must help your bear neighbors, who happen to be ghosts. The others who live on the island will also need your help. Fulfill quests for them as necessary to earn fun rewards. You can also give the islanders gifts to really show them you care! 

    Cozy Grove: Camp Spirit will have you gathering resources, crafting items, cooking delicious dishes, fishing, and much more on your exciting new adventure. Use your skills to craft tons of furniture and decor items to decorate the island with, too. It needs some color and a personal touch to really shine. Adopt cute animal companions while you’re out exploring, and play with them or pet them. With so much to do and so many fun islanders to encounter, it;ll be hard to be lonely in this adorable follow-up game! 

    Release Date

    You can pick up Cozy Grove: Camp Spirit on Google Play and Apple App Store now! 

    And if you haven’t already checked out Cozy Grove, now’s your chance!

    Set off on an exciting adventure across an open world featuring 100 islands ripe for exploration in Moonstone Island! While adventure is a major aspect, this adorable game, developed by Studio Supersoft and published by Raw Fury, also includes a little bit of everything. It’s a creature-collecting life sim with fun deckbuilding and also unique puzzles and mazes, some farming, and resource collecting too. Get to know the locals, brew potions, collect Spirits, and work on completing your alchemy training!

    Following the long-standing traditions of your village, you move to a sky island to complete your alchemy training. Pick from any of the 100 different islands to settle on. Then, you can start your new adventure by building a cozy home to call your own.

    Use over 200 pieces of fun furniture and decor to make your home the coziest around. If you grab the Decorator’s Pass, you’ll gain access to all of the DLC cosmetics that have been added since launch, and more that are to be added later. Plus, you can start your own garden full of crops and flowers to use in your alchemy or to tame Spirits with.

    Don’t forget to go talk to the cast of diverse and intriguing NPCs while you’re at it. You’ll become a valued member of the community and can even find someone to fall in love with and marry. You’ll not only experience a newly added wedding scene, but you can move in with your new spouse, too!

    When you’re not spending your time at home, take the chance to go explore Moonstone Island. Travel via balloon, broom, and glider to see some unique biomes. Tame and befriend over 70 extraordinary Spirits (a roster that has only grown bigger since the PC launch) while you uncover secrets about your new sky-based home. Battle other Spirits with your own in engaging encounters where you’ll use a deck of cards as the battle system.

    Solve unique mazes and puzzles, then battle against fun dungeon bosses, and earn rewards. Earn helpful new upgrades, useful loot, and island secrets. You can also take on the newly added INFINIDUNGEON for an unending challenge!

    This game is perfect for the gamers who love Pokemon, Stardew Valley, and even Slay the Spire. The combination of collecting Spirits with a card-based battle system makes for a cozy, but engaging experience. Yet, it has that cozy no-rush aspect (with farming) like Stardew Valley has. So, complete your quests and explorations at your own pace with no time limits!

    Moonstone Island is NOW AVAILABLE on Switch!

    Everafter Falls is a cozy farming sim that lets you rediscover the simple life. You once lived in this quaint place, actually, but a terrible accident happened. When you wake up from that accident, you learn your previous life wasn’t actually real. It was all a simulation! You no longer remember your adorable animal neighbors, the charming little farm you called all your own, nor any of the inviting flowers and cool breezes you used to enjoy. You remember none of it! 

    There’s nothing to do but to get back into the swing of things, though. So rejoin life in the quaint town of Everafter Falls. Reacquaint yourself with your old friends. Learn how to farm and fish again. Your cute pet will help you along the way, and so will automated drones. They can help with expanding your inventory and caring for your crops. If you crave some action, then take up your trusty old sword once more to fight your way through the dungeon! Earn upgrades to better defeat dungeon enemies and use those automated drones to help you fight for even more success. 

    The question is, is Everafter Falls really as peaceful as it seems? 

    Release Date

    Everafter Falls is available everywhere now! The game launches today and you can find it on Steam, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch

    Vampire Rancher is another adorable farm sim you should take a look at!

    Thank you to Prideful Sloth and CULT Games for this early access copy!

    Go-Go Town is an adorable city builder and management game where you’re the mayor. Your job is to plan, build, and prosper! Rise through the ranks as you surpass other towns as a prime tourist spot. Turn the rundown town from not to hot by cleaning it up and building things people want to see. Food stalls, knick knack shops, and beautiful parks all make for a fun experience for visitors. There’s a little more to it than just building things people want to see, though. Being mayor isn’t easy! 

    What’s New

    The first time I was given the chance to play Go-Go Town, it was a simple and limited playtest that barely scratched the surface of the game. This time, there’s so many new features and cool additions to the game that it’s like playing a whole new thing! There are new areas to explore, upgrades and progression that didn’t exist, plus fun cosmetics. 

    You now start the game with a humorous and easy tutorial that walks you through how to play while setting up a simple story behind why you’re suddenly a mayor. You can access the information via your in-game phone at any time, too. Then, you’re set off on your own to explore town and do almost anything you want. You are limited in what you can build until you unlock more things. However, you can build something and move it any number of times you want with ease. So it’s easy to redesign if you change your mind! 

    As the mayor in Go-Go Town, your prime objective is to restore the town. To do that, you’ll build interesting attractions to lure in visitors. To do that, you’ll need construction materials! Go mine some stone to turn into bricks, and cut down trees to turn into planks. Eventually, you can automate those jobs by hiring some of your new inhabitants. As you progress further through the game, you’ll be able to automate just about everything from farming and fishing, to courier services and trash pick up. In order to progress, you earn EGO points you can use to unlock more options. You’ll get the chance to have town decorations, upgrades to farming, fishing, mining, and forestry, as well as new home types, shops, and more! Progression is easy, but still satisfying. 

    What Else Is New

    Your handy in-game phone now has several apps to help you manage your town, too. The tourist tracker lets you know if any of the visitors are unhappy so you can fix the problem. The calendar shows you what time trains arrive, but also lets you schedule your leaderboard challenges. These challenges can be scheduled once you’ve bought every EGOTech currently available, and completing a challenge increases your town rank, unlocking more EGOTech to buy. Challenges are pretty easy to complete, and can be rescheduled with no negative outcomes should you fail. My first challenge needed me to earn 100 coins (which will happen through your shops), build some shops, and build a few lamp posts. The leaderboard app shows you how your town ranks amongst other towns. Keeping an eye on your apps will help you learn how to progress, but also lets you see how far you’ve come! 

    The potential new residents that show up in Go-Go Town now require you to meet some demands before they’ll accept an invite to move in. That means you’ll need to pay a fee, build something specific, or even just give them a high five! You can then assign them to a specific home and give them a job. Hiring residents will help you automate the town and take some tasks off your plate. If you’re getting overwhelmed, though, you can close the train station to visitors. This lets you restock shops, redesign and redecorate, build, clean up the trash and spills left behind, or even explore the new areas and biomes in peace! Of course, you won’t earn any money, but that’s an easy trade-off for momentary peace. 

    While you’re designing the town, don’t forget to give yourself a redesign! Visit the little kiosk next to the train station to change your hair, facial features, and clothes. As you find loot throughout the world, they’ll be sent to this kiosk. So, you can change clothes and add fun accessories like heart-shaped glasses. There are even a variety of hats to choose from, plus different baskets to carry your stuff in. 

    Overall

    Go-Go Town is such a great game. It’s exactly as chill as you need it to be since you can close the train station, but even then, it’s not an overly demanding or hectic game. The art is lovely. The music is perfect and not overwhelming. Being able to decorate and manage a town makes for a cool concept, but with the addition of the progression tiers, it’s a super engaging game. There are an almost endless list of possibilities for your little town, too! 

    There is a new demo available for the current Steam Next Fest, too. Even more exciting is Early Access drops on Steam June 18th! That’s just next week. So, if you haven’t already, add the game to your Steam Wishlist to be notified when it’s live.

    Little Sim World is an adorable upcoming cozy sim that has been in development for several years now. Taking place in the center of London, this little life sim is more than just a game where you care for a person, but it’s an opportunity to shape that person and influence their story! Move into your rustic little home in the heart of London and take time to explore, work, collect items, decorate, and so much more. This game is packed full of all the sim features you could possibly want to create an exciting and engaging experience. 

    Kickstarter Now Live

    Now you have a chance to help Little Sim World by supporting their Kickstarter, which just launched today June 7th! There are an immeasurable number of games out there, but this one deserves the support from interested gamers so it can deliver all of the content that’s been promised. And the developer Blue Gravity Studios has already done some incredible work delivering on promised content so far! 

    Start your new sim life by fully customizing your character with hair types, hair colors, clothing, and personality traits. Start your new life by moving into a rustic, cozy home, but visit the local DIY shop to buy stuff for house upgrades. Also explore a bustling piece of the city where you’ll find shops, NPCs, and even vehicle traffic. Stop in the gym to get your sweat on, or run around collecting coins to donate to the museum. There’s even fishing to be done in Little Sim World. Visit the quaint Grosvenor Canal to catch all kinds of fish. Or go chill at the library to read and learn something new. Perhaps even fall in love? The opportunities are nearly endless.

    Every day isn’t all fun and games, though! You must manage your character’s needs for food, water, hygiene, even entertainment and comfort. Plus, a job is necessary to obtain funds for your decorating endeavors and expenses. So you must learn to balance everything well in order to achieve success, but this offers a truly excellent life sim experience. Never mind that the game’s visuals are absolutely charming and adorable. Throw in the dynamic weather and different seasonal changes, Little Sim World has a lot to offer and is well-worth backing on Kickstarter! 

    Release Date

    Again, the Kickstarter for this great sim game launches June 5th. There’s also a Steam page that lists the release date for the game later this year! 

    Kickstarter is Now Live!

    You can help developers unlock even more features by supporting their Kickstarter right here.
