There is no doubt that 2020 has been a bummer of a year for many of us. Whether you are impacted in terms of your financials, health, relationships, or mental wellbeing, a break is what we are all in search of. Thankfully, there is the escapism of video games that can help. Sure, you can escape into the futuristic utopia of Night City in Cyberpunk 2077, but that might be too overwhelming for you. Instead, why not look for a more relaxing time with cat café sim Calico?
Available now on Steam, it is every bit as awesome as it sounds. Peachy Keen Games’ cat café sim, Calico, presents players with a taste of a life full of feline pals. Your task — should you choose to accept it — is to help rebuild the town’s cat café, and of course, gather the cutest and most adorable of creatures to fill it up with.
As with most other sim games, there is plenty of room for customization. Cute furniture, fun decorations, yummy pastries, and more animals are in the mix to make your day.
A whole new leash on life
While that is already enough to get some players invested, the cat café sim Calico goes one step further in adding immersion to the world. The character creator gives you the flexibility to create your avatar, with choices of clothes to find and collect in the game.
When it comes to animal friends, every animal is interactive. Befriend them, name them, add them to your party, or send them to your new café. It is always fun to see a bunch of animals following your avatar in a party, and they listen to commands as well. How neat.
Of course, you cannot ignore your other goals. You will need to spruce up your premises with furniture in different styles. A welcoming establishment is key to reviving the scene once again. In fact, you will need to get hands-on in creating yummy baked goods and drinks for customers as well.
The cat café sim Calico has a certain magic to it. Making animal friends, improving the state of things, all in the name of a better future. That is something we all need, and if you can get a potion to turn a single animal giant-sized, I am sure you will be happier as well.
