Developed by Peachy Keen Games and published by Whitethorn Digital. Calico is a magical, relaxed and family-friendly simulation game where players are given an opportunity to run their very own cat cafe. The game is expected to be released on Steam at some point during Summer 2020. The game will most likely release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and MacOS shortly afterwards.
Calico came about due to the game developer’s obsession with cats, magical girls and fluffy animals. However, wanting to create a game that would appeal to everyone, she also included creatures such as lizards, birds, deer, raccoons, dogs, turtles, red pandas, foxes, etc.
She then shares about how she wanted to publish a game that would make players feel ‘soft, happy, cuddly and cozy’. If that wasn’t wholesome enough, she has said in an interview that she just wanted to create a game where the only goal is to have the best time possble.
However, simply running the cat cafe is not the only things that players can do. The game also incorporates enjoyable aspects from other popular gaming franchises such as Animal Crossing. Similarities between Calico and Animal Crossing include the simulation aspects of both games, and the ability to place furnitire and decorations in your buildings. A perk about Calico however, is that the animals will not leave, the shop never closes, and crops never die.
As all animals are interactive, players can explore the village to find cats and other animals, including raccoons, deer, dogs, turtles, red pandas, foxes, lizards, etc. The animals can be befriended, petted and played with
Players can ride on giant cats ( as you do? )
Run your café by filling it with animals, furniture and yummy café eats!

Choose to play as Mario, Luigi or Toad, or as Nabbit and Toadette, who also feature in the game. The ‘New Super Luigi U’ WiiU game expansion comes included in the Switch’s deluxe version.
Animal Crossing Switch
After the wait became almost unbearable, Nintendo nonchalantly confirmed Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch during their recent Nintendo Direct. Whilst not much information about game content is known yet, the game is set to be released in 2019.
Whilst we await more information about the game, here’s a meme to entertain you:
Yoshi’s Crafted World
Yoshi’s Crafted World (formerly known by it’s working title of ‘Yoshi’) is an upcoming side-scrolling platform game for Nintendo Switch. It was announced at E3 2017, and is set to be released in Spring 2019. Like prior Yoshi games, players can use Yoshi’s tongue to eat enemies or other objects, turn them into eggs, or throw them outwardly into the level. The game features 3D characters on a 2D plane and allows players to view the game from two opposing viewpoints.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps
Ori and the Will of the Wisps is an upcoming platform-adventure Metroidvania game. It is being developed by Moon Studios, published by Microsoft (for Windows and Xbox One), and will hopefully be released at some point in 2019. The game is a sequel to the critically acclaimed 2015 game Ori and the Blind Forest. The story is based on a new adventure where Ori seeks to discover the world beyond the forest of Nibel, uncover the truths of the lost ones, and unearth his true destiny.
