CALICO is a cheerful, laid back, singleplayer game where you run a cat café, bake cat-shaped treats, cuddle animals, and meet the friendly people of a magical, star-shaped island. You can customize your character’s body type, hair color, clothing and more, and decorate your café with a variety of furniture, cat beds, and other decorations.
This game is filled with magic, positivity and lots of little surprises. Ride animals, play with them, give them hats, change their names, use potions to make them bigger or smaller or a different color, send them to live in your café, ask them to follow you everywhere you go, or let them run free.
There is a main storyline in CALICO, with some side quests to unlock recipes and other items, but when the game “ends” you can go on exploring, baking and playing the game. There’s not a ton of content, but for $12 there are several hours of lovely music and creative fun.
CALICO was developed by Peachy Keen Games and published by Whitethorn Games. It was just released in December 2020 and is available for Switch, PC, Xbox and Mac.
