The adorable life sim about running a cat cafe just got bigger and cuter!
For those that may missed it, Calico is a super cute indie game about magical girls that get to run their very own cafe for kitties. The charming aesthetic and chill pace make this one relaxing sim title that is always a joy to explore. The game becomes even more joyous with every wonderful update that the devs have released since the games launch.
The game is currently available through the Nintendo eShop for the Switch and PC via Steam, where it costs just $11.99. Now that the game is getting its third big bug fix/update since release, one can’t help but get the feeling that there has never been a better time to try out Calico on Nintendo Switch (or Steam, if that’s your thing). Below you can see a trailer for the game, as well as a detailed list of all the changes that were introduced in this update.
