Calico’s cat sim cafe is out now

Cat cafe simulation Calico has come out of the oven right in time. I was starting to fear that he would enter the new year without hitting the expected 2020 news window. Don’t be afraid though, Calico has scrambled out here in the final weeks of the year, so you can jump in to decorate cakes, gather animal friends, and collect your cafe. right now.

Calico, by far, is the most fragile game that comes out of the genre I use “Stardewbut”. Are they games of life? Sims home? Sims home life? I have never settled into a term that works for them all. Anyway, Calico is similar to Stardew Valley in that you are a newcomer to a city where you get to know the city and revitalize much needed local work. This job is a cat cafe, meaning you not only grow crops but collect cats and all sorts of other very cute fur creatures. There are also lots of pink things. It is unapologetically adorable.

“Build your cafe by filling it with fancy furniture, fun decorations, yummy pastries, and get busy with animals again,” say the developers. “Calico expects you to feel warm and smoky inside. The game features that with a low pressure creative environment to explore and play in. ”

The developers say you can befriend all kinds of animals, name them and add them to your party or send them home for cooling in the cafe. There are also magic pots with various effects such as the “More-to-pet Potion” which turns an animal into a biggo version of itself. You know, for cycling cats. I think I’ll turn into a different animal giant though, personally.

That’s right, bear.

Calico is out now past Steam and the Epic Games Store for £ 9.29 / € 9.99 / $ 11.99.
