What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Building a community is a big part of the gameplay in Critter Cove, and we want to ensure that focus is reflected in our development. We’ve been working on Critter Cove for many years behind closed doors. We’ve created the game we always wanted to make, and now we want to hear from players what features, stories and characters they would like to see to help us expand that world together.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We intend to launch the 1.0 version of the game sometime in 2024, but have no specific date in mind yet. We want to give ourselves some flexibility and learn from player feedback what a “complete” version of Critter Cove will look like.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Our goal is to develop Critter Cove in every area, increasing both the breadth and depth of the gameplay during Early Access. While we can’t yet be specific about gameplay features, we’ll be focusing our development on added player activities, a larger and more varied world space and the conclusion to all story elements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Critter Cove will launch into Early Access with all the content described on the "About This Game" section of this page.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to increase the price when Critter Cove leaves Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We view our game world as a canvas for our community to shape. This may be in small things, like helping with balancing and pacing. Or it could be bigger suggestions, like helping us create new buildings, features and characters. We’ll be regularly monitoring player feedback on updates and taking direct suggestions from the community through our Discord server and streams.”

About This Game

Critter Cove is a cozy life sim adventure that takes places across a string of islands in a colorful but mysterious open world. Whether you like to spend your days, crafting, fishing, exploring, growing new plants or just helping around town, the quirky inhabitants of Critter Cove welcome you!

Employ your engineering skills to improve the town, bringing back shops and community spaces. If the Caring Community Commission approves, you’ll lift Critter Cove through the ranks, unlocking new buildings to renovate, new items to craft, and new features to enrich your town!

Rebuild the town of Critter Cove from the ground up. Craft weird and wonderful items using resources scavenged from across the world. Repurpose trash, debris, and driftwood into useful tools, machinery, and furniture.⠀

As your town levels up, you’ll need to find and recruit an adorable cast of animal townsfolk to move in. Assign them jobs that suit their unique personalities, build them homes, and help them become a part of your flourishing island community.

From a snarky bearded dragon to a robot puzzled at the peculiarities of meat-based beings, you’ll always be forging new relationships with the world’s eclectic characters.

Set in a vibrant world littered with ruins of a long dead civilisation, our colourful post-post apocalypse setting is filled with mystery and begging to be explored. Reach new areas and uncover secrets by building your own boats and researching and crafting items to overcome obstacles.

And that’s just on dry land - below the waves there’s a wondrous world of mysterious ruins, shipwrecks and ancient technology. Craft new equipment to dive deeper and sail farther, and discover new places and bizarre peoples!

Play as a human or a huge range of animal characters. Mix and match your purrfect persona. Select, refurbish, and personalize your own home and your wardrobe with a broad selection of furnishings, fashions and designs.

Local stores open up new mechanics and quests as you rebuild the town. Critters will work and rely on the new stores and amenities you build, so keep everyone fit with a repaired gym, healthy with a restored clinic, and happy with a drink at the newly rebuilt beachside bar!
