Cuddly Forest Friends is a simulation video game developed and published by Nippon Columbia.

Build Your Own Village

The game begins when Chinchilla comes to the Gesshizu’s village. The player will cooperate with the Gesshizu by watching over them, plotting their fields and homes, and allocating them various work.

Help Out the Gesshizu

Give the Gesshizu commands and they will work, eat, and craft. Since they each have their own strengths, weaknesses, likes, and dislikes, your village building efforts will move forward as you help them out. It is also extremely cute and healing just to see them working so hard and eating together.

Collect Various Items

By gathering materials and such, the Gesshizu can craft various items. You can also sell the items you craft and buy items that cannot be obtained in the village. The Gesshizu can be outfitted with crafted accessories, and if you create a new facility, you can perform new actions at that facility.

Solve Puzzles and Earn Happiness Points to Obtain Items

When you give the Gesshizu a command, there is a “wait time” until they perform that action. In the meantime, you can establish new facilities on the field, cook up food with new recipes, and even play a “Puzzle Game” to earn “Happiness Points.”

The Puzzle Game’s rules are very simple. Line up two or more of the same tiles (Gesshizu faces) to erase them. A game is cleared when a set number of tiles have been erased. The Happiness Points earned by playing the Puzzle Game can be offered to the Happiness Tree in the forest to obtain rare items.

A New Friend Joins the Gesshizu

The new friend Chinchilla has joined the cast of Gesshizu that appear in the game. Chinchilla is characterized by his white, round body and large tail. He loves building everything and anything, and is good at pestering everyone to get involved in the village building process.
