    My list of 9 games for cat lovers wasn’t complete without Cattails, based on popular request I have taken another close look at Cattails a feline-themed simulation RPG game available on Steam and Nintendo Switch.

    Developed and published by Falcon Entertainment for PC, Mac and Linux on December 1st of 2017, the game has garnered very ‘paws-itive’ feedback since its release. Through the eyes of a cat, Cattails allows players to hunt for food, interact with other cats, gather herbs and explore an expansive world.

    Kotaku have said that “Cattails looks like Stardew Valley, except cats.” and IGN have said that Cattails is “an adorably silly game, but one that’s also a lot of fun.” Stardew Valley is arguably one of the most popular and beloved indie games among fans of the genre. Mixing the lovely farming game with the cuteness of cats just sounds like a lot of fun to me!

    Cat Activities and Open World Exploration


    In Cattails you will join one of three unique cat colonies and become friends or frenemies with its residents. Of course there are also cat like activities such as hunting mice and squirrels that will take you on a journey through the large open world.

    While adventuring you can also find love in another cat… and get married…. to another cat. If that doesn’t sound like the perfect cat-tastic mix between Stardew Valley and a traditional Harvest Moon game – then I don’t know!

    Seasons and Weather Changes


    The open world is full of treasures and things to do. While out exploring you can gather herbs and berries that you can give to your friends. They say small gifts keep a friendship alive! You will also stumble across all different areas like the woodlands, swamps and even beaches.

    Seasons and weather can also change at all times, making for an even more engaging and atmospheric experience. Each seasons like you may have guessed, feature festivals that you can participate in if you wish.

    Cattails is now out on Steam and Nintendo Switch and since I booted up the game again I have only ever put it down to share my experience with you. Cattails is a wonderful game for any cat lover or anyone who enjoys cute, relaxed gaming!

    In other cat related news, Calico: Magical Girls Running Cat Café is an Animal Crossing and Cat game hybrid that is just too adorable to pass on!

    Don’t miss your chance to pre-order this limited print Animal Crossing and Polly Pocket inspired Tiny Village.

    If there is one thing that Polly Pocket and Animal Crossing have in common, it is their ability to take an amazing and beautiful world, and put it right in the palm of our hands. It is a skill that few others have mastered throughout the years, and one that I wanted to portray in my culmination of these two wonderful universes.

    The Tiny Village captures all the adorability of some of the most iconic characters inspired by the Animal Crossing series, and puts them in a little world all for you.

    The Tiny Village includes loads of little figurines that create a charming Animal Crossing style scene. You will notice such stars as Marshall, Isabelle, Ankha and Stitches. There are a few shops to explore, houses to decorate, or your tiny friends can just laze about in the beach area.

    The whole thing comes in a Sea Shell shaped outer, well, shell. With the Tiny Village, you can let your imagination run wild, and the possibilities are endless.

    Order Update – Available Now

    The Tiny Village Pals are now available for shipping in my shop as long as stock lasts.

    The Tiny Village will a be a single print run, as it is an intricate, difficult-to-produce, handmade product. I will be doing pre-orders to allow myself to keep up with resources. Pre-Orders will close without notice, so order while you can. I will begin shipping the Tiny Village shortly after pre-orders close this summer.

    A big thanks to caomor on Twitter for the inspiring artwork!

You will fill the zen zone with the sand (included in the kit), then place the various composition items to your liking. I added my own moss for effect, but you can choose to add any greenery you wish to bring it to life more. The included items are as follows:

    1x Harvey Figurine
    1x Harvey House
    1x Harvey House firewood stand
    1x Zen Bridge
    1x Cherry Blossom Tree
    6x Stones

    Here are 15 super cute games for the 3DS to celebrate the consoles 10th anniversary.

    It has been exactly 10 years since Nintendo launched the 3DS in North America. The handheld console may have had a rough start with a price tag a little too high but once Nintendo listened to its fanbase the handheld quickly become a fans favorite gaming machine and has sold more than 75 million units since its original launch back in February 2011.

    With the Nintendo Switch just recently celebrating its third birthday, I thought it would be a great idea to take a look at the Nintendo 3DS. This handheld console was first released in February of 2011. The 3DS features a library of more than 1297 games – I took 15 of the cutest ones and listed them right here for you! Join me on a journey through The 15 Best Cute 3DS Games.

    I also compiled a list of my 15 favorite Nintendo 3DS games, so if case you missed that list, check it out! This time I am being a little more specific. Kawaii lovers rejoice! Here are some of the 15 cutest 3DS games.

    • Disney – Magical World: Released in 2013, Disney Magical World was highly anticipated by Disney fans and kawaii lovers alike. Being cute, wholesome and not requiring commitment, the game is perfect for children, and casual gamers with busy lives. ( get it here )
    Disney Magical World 2
    • Disney – Magical World 2: With all the same perks as the game’s predecessor, as well as new characters, outfits, items, minigames, and worlds to explore, this game was also very well received. ( get it here )
    Detective Pikachu
    • Detective Pikachu: Detective Pikachu is a recently released game for the 3DS. Considering the main character of the game (who has a cult following due to his cuteness) is a lil detective (●´ω`●), it’s safe to say this game is cute. ( get it here )
    • Pokémon Rumble World: Cuddly toy Pokémon. Those three words scream cuteness (although as Pocket Camp would say, not literally, as that would be terrifying). With the ability to play as a Mii character in a kingdom of toys, the retail version of this adorable game was released worldwide in 2016. ( get it here )
    Animal Crossing: New Leaf
    • Animal Crossing: New Leaf: OBVS. With a cute alpaca couple, three hedgehog sisters, a pigeon barista, and a town full of anthropomorphic animals, there’s nothing about this game that isn’t cute! This classic installment in the series is still popular today for its adorable aesthetic alone.  ( get it here )
    Tomodachi Life
    • Tomodachi Life: Released worldwide in 2014, Tomodachi life is a surprisingly entertaining game. Using mii characters, players can populate the island, unlock new shops and items, form relationships, and even have a baby. ( get it here )
    Fantasy Life Online
    • Fantasy Life: Aesthetic AND cute. Released worldwide by Level 5 in 2014, it comes as no surprise that the game is endearing. If slaying dragons isn’t your cup of tea, you can instead enjoy the entertaining storyline and numerous cute features (such as plushlings and pets) that the game has to offer. ( get it here )
    Moco Moco Friends
    • Moco Moco Friends: I hadn’t heard of this one until recently. At first I thought “Oh, like Pokémon Rumble?” due to the game’s cuddly toy theme. Apparently, it’s possible to get even cuter than Pokémon rumble, as Moco Moco Friends combines a magic school and cuddly toy monsters whilst also evoking a ghibli-esque theme. ( get it here )
    Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask
    • Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask: It’s no secret that the Professor Layton series consists of games with stunning stories, mesmerizing music, and amazing artwork. Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask doesn’t disappoint with it’s colorful carnival-esque theme and unusual plot. ( get it here )
    Professon Layton and the Azran Legacy
    • Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy: Admittedly, this game was kind of bittersweet due to being the last main series game to be made. However, with it’s multitude of worlds to explore, treachery, and plot twists, in combination with the usual incredible artwork and music, this game is also a must-play for 3DS owners and Layton fans. ( get it here )
    • Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Released in 2012, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is a rhythm video game made by Square Enix with Final Fantasy characters. Rated 8.5/10 by IGN, the chibi game was popular enough to warrant an iOS sequel in 2014. ( get it here )
    • Kirby: Triple Deluxe: Kirby himself is a little cutie pie (the words of my brother), so naturally the 2014 game Kirby: Triple Deluxe was going to make this list. After Kirby’s friend Dedede is kidnapped by Taranza (who has created a giant ‘dreamstalk’), Kirby sets off to bravely rescue him! Is it just me who finds it hard to take such a cute little hero seriously? Tee hee. ( get it here )
    • Yo-Kai Watch: Jibanyaaaaaan! Also a product of Level 5, the colourful game Yo-Kai watch is definitely cute with cat yo-kai such as Jibanyan, a scatterbrained butler named Whisper, and it’s anime like features. ( get it here )
    Yo-Kai Watch 2
    • Yo-Kai Watch 2 (Bony Spirits, Fleshy Souls & Psychic Specters): Oh mah swirls! Like it’s predecessor, Yo-Kai Watch 2 (which has 3 variations) is also a cute must-play 3DS game. ( get it here )
    • Return to PoPoLoCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale: Described by Hardcore Gamer as “thoroughly charming from the very start”, this 2016 rarely talked about game is definitely cute enough to warrant a play-through. ( get it here )

    In a recent chat with devs, I learned that Cooking Mama Cookstar is still being updated and polished.

    Since the last time I covered it, Cooking Mama Cookstar has gone through many changes and updates, making it a game worthy of the Nintendo Switch. In the beginning, many didn’t think it was likely that this game would live up to the reputation of its predecessors.

    After an in-depth chat with the developers, iI learned that the initial patches would be just the beginning of the changes coming to Cooking Mama Cookstar. A few patches were then released to fix some of the issues, and I have no doubt that there will be more fine tuning to come.

    Cooking Mama Cookstar

    I’d say that this is most wonderful news indeed, seeing as how there wasn’t supposed to be another Cooking Mama game…ever. In its current state, I can personally say that Cooking Mama Cookstar is definitely worth the time and attention of all fans of the Cooking Mama franchise.

    This title is super cute and addicting, just like any cooking game should be. It is very exciting to see that the game is still more than the negative press it has received (mostly false accusations and bandwagon negativity), and that it continues to improve and grow.

    cooking mama cookstar

    While the game is currently not available through the Nintendo eShop, you can still find it on Amazon, and I was personally able to secure a few hardcopies for fans of both Cooking Mama and myPotatogames.

    How to enter!
