If you haven’t heard about Cozy Grove before, it’s a game about everyday life on an island paradise, and it’s haunted. The game blends cute and spooky to a tee. As a spirit scout it’s your job to help the spectral inhabitants with their afterlives. You’ll build a camp, make friends with the characters, and bring color back by decorating. Explore the forest every day to find new items to craft, and areas to explore. Embark on quests tied to your relationships with the various spirits, decorate and customize your camp, make the island your own. With procedurally generated changes and a living world to keep you company, you’ll never run out of fun new things to do or collect. With a little time, a little love, and a lot of crafting you’ll bring color and joy back to Cozy Grove.
“Cozy Grove is ultimately intended to become a game that you comfortably settle into,” shares Spry Fox CEO, David Edery. “It doesn’t make you feel like you need to play for 8 hours in a single sitting to “maximize” your experience, and it doesn’t make you feel like you’ve seen everything there is to see in a few days either. We want Cozy Grove to become a delightful ritual that you look forward to every day, and for it to remain that way for many weeks, months and possibly even years. When everything else in your life might be chaos, Cozy Grove will hopefully be a place you can predictably and regularly find a bit of joy.
The game boasts some unique features like, beautiful, dynamic, hand-drawn landscapes that come alive when you help a spirit in need. Additionally, there are dozens of memorable characters and spirits for you to find and befriend and you can collect spirit animals, craft decorations, go fishing, and more. Finally, there is a 40+ hour campaign filled with side quests, designed to span months of playtime.
