Divine’s Thoughts

Cozy Grove, like many other games, caught my eye because of its art style. It’s super cutesy and reminded me of Don’t Starve a little in its roughness. Simulation games are a favorite of mine so I immediately put Cozy Grove on my Steam wishlist. It’s since had several seasonal updates and I finally got the chance to play it a bit over winter break.

As expected, the game is extremely cute. Character customization is pretty basic but just enough to make a character your own. Dialogue is well written, simple, and actually feels worth reading. (I’m a serial offender when it comes to just skipping through game dialogue, sorry game devs). The tutorial is nice and to the point and establishes some story basics. Controls are simple and this is definitely a game I’d love to play on the switch and kick back on the couch.

The story lasts a long time, with tons of quests, so you could easily play this game for a long time. Most people seem to enjoy playing it for a few hours here and there. I believe this is a great way to experience it as well because you are less likely to get burnt out on it and it makes it last. So if you’re looking for a casual game with great vibes to enjoy in small chunks, I highly recommend giving it a go.
