    There appears to be an uptick in cozy room designing games lately, and I’m here for it. I know a lot of the casual, cozy gamers enjoy the building and room design aspect of The Sims. These latest design games focus solely on designing rooms and homes, without the people management. That makes these games perfect for the creatives who just want to design! Cozy Space by developer 攻壳游戏 Gamker Studio is one such game that boasts a cozy, easy-to-use interior design interface so you can create your dream rooms. 

    This gorgeous game features an extensive library of models that lets you design each room down to the minute details. Create comfy bedrooms with luxurious beds and the perfect ambient lighting. Place desks, lamps, plants, mirrors, and more for the perfect design accents. Pick appropriate wallpapers or paint colors and flooring options. Even make your dream game room, as Cozy Space is particularly geared towards gamers and includes large desks, computers, and other accessories. While you design, listen to the built-in relaxing music that you can control and customize for a better gaming experience. 

    Your imagination is the limit in this game! 

    Release Date

    Cozy Space is available now on Steam in Early Access!

    Make Room and Hometopia are a couple more cozy design games.

    News Tower, by developer Sparrow Night, lets you live the life of an aspiring influential publisher in 1930s New York. Search the globe for worthy news stories to publish. Follow key moments from the 1930s like Prohibition, the Great Depression, and more. Or write up stories that are a little less important, like the local lost cat. It’s your choice on what stories to cover, but choose wisely, as you aren’t simply writing for yourself! The mafia, the mayor, and other important factions want to use your influence to publish their “truths” for all to see. Bending to their will compromises the integrity of journalism, but it does earn you unique rewards! 

    Manage and optimize your News Tower of employees as your business expands. Hire writers, janitors, photographers, and more to make sure your newspaper becomes a success. Also ensure each person’s needs are met so they’ll be as productive as possible. Decorate each floor of the tower to offset the oily, noisy printing machines that will cause your writers to write poorly. Lush plants ought to do the trick. Your newspaper won’t make sales and become successful if your employees aren’t happy!

    Will you become a newspaper mogul?

    Release Date

    You can find News Tower on Steam now.

    I recently wrote a review for Spirittea, which is a lovely cozy game where you run a bath house for spirits instead of the usual farming that’s taken over the cozy genre. Overall, I enjoyed the game as the characters are fun and unique, the spirits add a sense of levity (especially your guide Wonyan), and the art is pretty. I’m really excited that there’s a new update for it called the” SpecQUACKular Update”! 

    This fun new “SpecQUACKular Update” adds a few fun new things, plus fixes a bunch of bugs! Spirittea now has ducks, which I’m sure you could guess from the name of the update. The ducks can swim around the baths in the bath house, eating the algae that forms. So, not only are they cute, but they’re helpful too! There’s also a new vendor who will roll into town every once in a while carrying new items to sell. Seasonal mechanics are now present in the bath house, too. Depending on the seasons, the baths will fill with algae (hence the ducks), ice over, or fill with fallen leaves. You need to keep the baths clean and employ the new bath heaters! Bruce has new animations, and the fishing pole has a reticle so it’s easier to see where you’ve thrown your line. 

    Bug Fixes

    Fixed error where items could be lost by placing them on shelves and tables

    Fixed issues with items disappearing within inventory

    Fixed issue where NPC’s would disappear behind the restaurant

    Fixed bug where NPC’s would become stuck on a path upon reload

    Fixed issue with Quill where on Saturday nights at the food stall he would ask if you want to stop hanging out with him

    Issue fixed with NPC’s appearing on the map at a certain location but them actually not being there

    Fixed issue where NPC’s couldn’t be found during tutorial quests whilst with Amelia if you had quit to main menu mid game

    Fixed multiple issues in Miko’s quest around the mysterious rabbit and cake

    Fixed issues with a softlock during Leigh’s quest if you spoke to the spirit behind the canvas

    Doubled ugligrass spawn rate

    Fixed issue with Clarence’s quest where the statues wouldn’t come back if you left the room

    Fixed issues with the boar where they could hit the player when they were passing into another room

    You can find Spirittea on Steam, Switch, and Xbox now!
