In Fossil Corner, you’re a retired paleontologist who enjoys the calm environment of their garage. There, you’ve created a peaceful sanctuary to hang out in and build your fossil collection. Then take some time emailing old friends to stave off the loneliness, or stare out the window at the beautiful fall leaves swirling in the wind.
To really pass the time in your retirement, you’ll focus on building your fossil collection. Fossil Corner features a variety of randomly generated fossils, trilobites, and crinoids for you to collect. You’ll work through a number of puzzles, too. Each puzzle is a box of procedurally generated fossils that form a whole family tree. It’s your job to unscramble that family tree by observing how the species changed over the generations. Once you complete a puzzle box, you receive a fossil to display!
You can find this cute fossil collector on Steam now!
Slothtopia is a charming family-friendly life simulator where you play as a sloth! Start by customizing your very own character. You’re in control of the colors, hair, gender (with a pronoun write-in available), name, and more! Customization options don’t stop there, though. You can dress your sloth, as well as beautify the island and your home by placing decorative items around town or in your house. Create the perfect place for you.
You’ll farm, fish, build relationships, and even catch monsters in Slothtopia. Natural resources are abundant, and the sea is where you’ll find fish and adventure. Grab your trusty boat and spend the day on beautiful ocean waters fishing up tuna to serve for dinner, or feed the island’s monsters. You can even fish the island’s lakes! The villagers rely on farming to survive, too. Sow your fields, plant seeds, water the plants, and harvest your crops.
As for the monster’s, the island of Slothtopia has a bunch of them. Don’t worry, they’re friendly and more like service animals once you tame them. You’ll need to feed them fish to keep them happy, but you can also pet and train them. Training them will level up your relationship and its abilities. Once they’re trained, you can send your monsters on tasks to catch fish, farm, or even romance that special someone.
Speaking of romances, Slothtopia has many friendly villagers that are your friends and family. They’ll assign many of the tasks you’ll complete, as well as help you with completing them. They’re powered by intelligent AI to give you immersive and dynamic conversations. Spend time getting to know them, level up your friendships, and even start a romantic relationship!
This adorable game will be available in 2024 on Steam! You can add it to your Wishlist now to keep up with it.
Was wandering around your island and traveling to other islands in search of all the different bugs in Animal Crossing your favorite things? Did you take joy in collecting each one to turn into the museum for the living bug display? Then Bug & Seek might be for you!
Catch Bugs and Revitalize the Museum
You’ve just sunk your life savings into buying the rundown, abandoned insectarium with the lofty dream of restoring it and refilling it with varieties of local bugs. The museum in Bug & Seek was once the lifeblood of the town, but someone stole the bugs in the dead of night. Now it’s up to you to hone your bug catching skills and breathe life back into the place.
Bug & Seek has over 175 different real-life bugs for you to capture. Ranging from super common, to some of the most rare bugs to exist, you’ll have a long list of exciting species to look for. You’ll find them throughout the cozy world of Buggburg. Visit the sandy beaches, dark caves, lush forests, saturated wetlands, and even the local university. Each bug comes with a humorous tagline and informational description so you can learn about them, too. Once you’ve captured a bug, take it to your museum to put it on display.
At the museum, you have total control over everything. You can choose from different wallpaper, flooring options, even the tanks you’ll display bugs in come in a variety of options. Expand the museum and build new wings as your collection grows. Bug & Seek even allows you to change your wardrobe and upgrade your tools to make bug catching even easier.
While you’re running around Buggburg, get to know the locals, as well. Bug & Seek has over 17 townspeople for you to meet. They’ll give you missions to complete, and reward you with new gear, items, secrets and gossip, and maybe even haiku. Maybe you can even solve the mystery of the Great Bug Heist!
Bug & Seek is coming to Steam sometime this year! There is currently a demo available, and you can add the game to your Wishlist to keep an eye on it.
