Are you looking for a game that you can easily settle down and get comfortable in? Well apparently, Cozy Grove is the slice of life adventure in which you should be setting up camp as it whisks you off to an ever-changing island. Despite the titular island being haunted, it still appears destined to become a part of your daily routine on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Switch and PC.
Cozy Grove is the idyllic, albeit haunted, island where you’ll need to embrace the life of a spirit scout. This essentially entails putting the spectral residents at ease and make friends with them while they adapt to the afterlife. That’s not your only goal though, because after building a camp on the island, the aim is to bring colour back and sprinkle a bit of joy throughout the rather wholesome Cozy Grove. It’ll take some time, effort, and most importantly, a caring approach.
The developers Spry Fox hope that rejuvenating the island will translate into a daily ritual in your gaming life, with over 40 hours worth of content present which has been designed to keep you busy for weeks and months at the very least – sort of like the long-term investment found in the likes of Stardew Valley. There’s seldom a dull moment in Cozy Grove either due to activities such as crafting, fishing and fulfilling quests for the spirits. Furthermore, you can prepare to explore the procedurally generated, living world each day and discover new areas as well as new items to craft.
- • Beautiful, dynamic, hand-drawn landscapes that come alive when you help a spirit in need.
- • Dozens of memorable characters and spirits for you to find and befriend. Each spirit has a unique, extensive story for you to unravel over time.
- • Collect spirit animals, craft decorations, go fishing and more!
- • 40+ hour campaign filled with side quests, designed to span months of playtime.
For those of you wanting to soothe the spirits and get all snug in the beautifully hand-drawn world of Cozy Grove, you’ll find it on the respective digital stores of the aforementioned platforms right now. In our case, that means visiting the Xbox Store and paying the fee of £12.49. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a review in the not-so-distant future, which will give you the full lowdown!
Welcome to Cozy Grove, a life-sim game about camping on a haunted, ever-changing island. As a Spirit Scout, you’ll wander the island’s forest each day, finding new hidden secrets and helping soothe the local ghosts. With a little time and a lot of crafting, you’ll bring color and joy back to Cozy Grove!
