Animal Crossing-Like Cozy Grove Now Out On Apple Arcade, Coming To Switch, PS4, And Xbox In April

And unlike Animal Crossing: New Horizons, this game won't judge you for taking a few days or weeks off from playing.


Looking for another cute management sim to invest in now that Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a year old? Maybe check out Cozy Grove, which is now available on Apple Arcade and coming to Xbox One, PS4, and Switch on April 8.

Developer Spry Fox even compares its latest game to Animal Crossing. I don't blame them either as there are plenty of similarities in terms of tone and gameplay loop. It all seems very relaxing.

In Cozy Grove, you don't really have an immediate mandate, leaving you free to wander across the island in search of secrets to discover, friends to make, ghosts to soothe, and helpful items to craft. Over time, your efforts to bring life to the haunted island will eventually cause it to fill with color.

Personally, I'm looking forward to jumping into the game because Spry Fox tweeted out the promise that the game's inhabitants "won't shame you for taking a few days (or months) off" like Animal Crossing's villagers will. I don't need that pressure on my conscience right now.
