Calico is a charming, colorful “day-in-the-life” community sim game from developers Matias Schmied and Peachy Keen Games, and publisher Whitethorn Digital. Shown off during today’s Nintendo Indie World showcase, Calico has been surprise-dropped in the eShop for immediate download and play on Nintendo Switch. You can get a sample of the gameplay in the below trailer:

Here’s a breakdown of what Calico is all about:

Calico is a day-in-the-life community sim game where you are given an important and adorable task: rebuild the town’s cat café and fill it with cute and cuddly creatures! You will journey to a small village filled with magical girls and other fantastical friends, where you are placed in charge of a run down cat café. Build up your café by filling it with cute furniture, fun decorations, yummy pastries, and get it bustling with animals again!

Calico is meant to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The gameplay reflects that with a laid back, low stress creative environment to explore and play in.

The gameplay in Calico will be somewhat familiar to fans of Animal Crossing, but there are distinct differences, too. While you can create a character and communicate with animals, you can also customize a café, cook, and even use magic. There’s a bunch of stuff to do and see in Calico; will you be giving it a look? Tell us in the comments and on social media!
