Cozy Grove is a life-simulation where you camp on a hand-drawn island. You play a scout and explore the ever changing island's forest to find secrets and help the local ghosts. Like Animal Crossing, it has a children's story-book look, but is a surprisingly layered and engaging experience. You soon discover different ghost bears on the island who need your help coming to terms with their past before they can pass on to a peaceful afterlife

Like Animal Crossing, around the narrative and help-tasks it's a collectathon game. Each resident you meet gives you tasks like scavenging and crafting specific items. More than the usual grind though, these quests are more like hidden-object challenges where you root through the dense flora and fauna to find what you are looking for.

Cleverly, the game ensures these tasks never get overwhelming. You can play at your own pace, checking in with the game at different times of the day to discover new items. Once you are done you can put your feet up and wait until tomorrow for your next tasks.

The combination of beautiful, ever-changing landscapes, dozens of memorable characters with extensive stories, loads of animals to collect and the substantial main story, Cozy Grove is a game with a lot to offer.

This game has been rated PEGI 3.


Many of the tasks in Cozy Grove involve searching for and interacting with hidden objects in complex backgrounds, with some hints provided in the player's quest log. Most areas of the game start out with a limited color palate and then become bright and colorful as the player progresses. While there is sometimes a visual indicator toward the next quest, the player is usually left to explore the small island with no map or minimap available.
