Slice-of-life camping game Cozy Grove is available now for Apple Arcade and will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on April 8 for $14.99 with a 10 percent-off launch discount, publisher The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild and developer Spry Fox announced.
On the PlayStation Blog, Spry Fox CEO David Edery said a native PlayStation 5 with improved load times is also planned for release shortly after, and will be available as a free upgrade to the PlayStation 4 version. Gematsu reached out to the developer for comment on whether the same is planned for Xbox Series, but has yet to hear back.
“Cozy Grove is ultimately intended to become a game that you comfortably settle into,” said Spry Fox CEO David Edery in a press release. “It doesn’t make you feel like you need to play for eight 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.”
Here is an overview of the game, via The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild:
Cozy Grove is a slice-of-life game about camping on a haunted island! You are a Spirit Scout, exploring every day to find new hidden secrets and helping the spectral inhabitants of this small paradise. Each ghost you meet has their own needs, but it’s not just the afterlife you have to worry about! There are still-living locals of the island that have their own adventures they’d like you to go on, so pitch your tent and get to work. You’ll cook, fish, and camp alongside some bear-y happy helpers to bring joy to this terrific tropical community. These helpers are, in fact, literal bears.
