    Cozy Grove is a far more relaxing, yet in-depth experience than I ever could have expected when I jumped into it. Much like the best parts of Animal Crossing or Stardew Valley, it had a way of hooking me and I can wholeheartedly say that even if I wasn’t reviewing it, the way in which it caught me made it an experience I'm happy to return to daily.

    Cozy Grove's day-by-day mechanics can be frustrating to some, but is a definite welcome addition, allowing me to slowly unravel the story and giving me more playtime in the long run, completely enhancing my mornings.

    Whether you focus on story, decorating the island, collecting everything that isn’t nailed down, or some combination of the above, there’s a lot to do on the island of Cozy Grove and all the time needed to get it done. The long passage of time is more a concern for the living than the dead, and hanging out with the ghosts of Cozy Grove is a lovely, chill way to unwind for a few minutes as one day flows into another.

    Cozy Grove is a beautiful and relaxing game, but might be a little too repetitive for some people.

    Like Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Cozy Grove's leitmotif is to take your time, while taking advantage of breathtaking artistic direction. Its positive attitude and its very chill side will delight fans but are unlikely to change the minds of those who do not appreciate the genre.

    Cozy Grove is one of the typical yes games, but… It is very well linked to the genre it wants to represent, it has acceptable content and a fairly interesting narrative, but so many blatant references to Animal Crossing make it not entirely original.

    Cozy Grove is beautiful, but its forced gameplay cycle and its limitations make it fall behind other similar titles.

    I've been following the Cozy Grove landscape since its 1.0 update, and I see developers constantly working on improvements. Whether it'sI've been following the Cozy Grove landscape since its 1.0 update, and I see developers constantly working on improvements. Whether it's quality of life for the player or even bug fixing and adding more content for free after paying. The game itself is a mix of Don't Starve and Animal Crossing. The game's graphic is totally designed and pleasant, a game that you spend some time in the game, and then you can explore, collect some resources and leave it, since the game's function is to let you between 30 to 60 minutes of mission per day and with that lead to a slow growth but you notice that something is changing.

    Cozy Grove inhabits a "cozy" place in the Animal-Crossing like carbon-copy list of indie games, one that belongs to a soporific playable loopCozy Grove inhabits a "cozy" place in the Animal-Crossing like carbon-copy list of indie games, one that belongs to a soporific playable loop comparable or worse than Harvest Moon itself. Its shallow art style does no favours to its essence, either. Only further updates can make this digital product three times worth than it is by now. Expand

I will decide to support its associated developer when its game doesnt give more substance than perfect substitutes as Animal Crossing and Enchanted Folk. Expand
