Developer Spry Fox announced that the Cozy Grove summer update is now live today! Spry Fox has continuously made updates to the title since its debut back on April 8th, which was met with rave reviews from press and content creators alike.
Cozy Grove is a game about everyday life on an island paradise – that’s haunted! As a spirit scout, it’s your job to help the spectral inhabitants with their afterlives. You’ll build a camp, make friends with the characters, and bring color back by decorating. Explore the forest every day to find new items to craft and areas to explore. Embark on quests tied to your relationships with the various spirits, decorate and customize your camp, make the island your own! With procedurally generated changes and a living world to keep you company, you’ll never run out of fun new things to do or collect. With a little time, a little love, and a lot of crafting, you’ll bring color and joy back to Cozy Grove!
The past patch updates, which were driven by feedback given by the Cozy Grove community in Discord and Reddit, included hundreds of QoL, balance changes, and bug fixes. Notable changes included but were not limited to: increasing the stack size limits of various items, increasing the amount of storage available to players early in the game, reducing the difficulty of several quests, and a whole bunch of UI improvements. However, today’s latest update really elevates the gameplay experience for existing players and new players by adding a ton of new features and content!
According to the press release, the Cozy Grove summer update includes:
- New NPBs (non-playable bears) with new quest types and rewards
- New critter-catching and stone-skipping activities
- The ability to name your pet animals
- A still-secret “summer event” that will begin in July
- Dozens of new decorations and clothing items, plus new photo standees
- Two new, original song additions to the Cozy Grove soundtrack
- And most importantly, players can now hug the bears!
