Decorate, Manage, and Make Money with Your Own Inn as a Bear
In Bear and Breakfast you play as a bear named Hank and renovate an abandoned shack into an inn to attract tourists. The game is as relaxing as you would come to expect from a bed and breakfast in the middle of the woods.
Each room can be individually customized completely from furniture to fixtures. This includes bedrooms, lounges, kitchens and dining rooms, bathrooms, and more! While exploring the woods for goods, you’ll meet other strange characters, trade items with them, and uncover a story-rich plot.

Relax, Garden, and Help Villagers, Ghosts and Wild Animals
Aside from the alluring fact that you get to play this open-world adventure game as a red panda, Aka also has a giant capybara you can sleep on and baby dragons you can feed. Now that I have your attention, I’d like to point out that this story starts very much like Littlewood. War is over and as a retired soldier, it’s time for you to settle down on an island paradise.
The different environments you’ll get to explore range from maple tree forests inspired by Canadian landscapes, to tropical beaches inspired by South Asia and South America. The characters you meet can be villagers, monsters, animals, and even ghosts! Of course, due to the ravages of war, everyone will need your help to restore the local fauna and flora to its original glory.
The gardening in Aka puts an emphasis in permaculture whenever designing, cultivating, or crafting. When taking a break from your farmland, you can relax in the hot springs with monkeys, or play mini-games like sledding and trekking through mazes.
Coming Soon to PC and Switch
Aka is developed by Cosmo Gatto and published by NEOWIZ. It’s slated to release sometime in Q4 2022 on Steam here, and for the Nintendo Switch via the eShop.
