Calico from Whitethorn Games and Red Art Games for the Nintendo Switch 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!
Cooking Minigame - Create a wonderful café by making yummy baked goods and drinks for the townspeople!
Character Creator - The Calico character creator will allow players to create their own magical person to experience the world through. There will also be plenty of clothing to choose from and collect throughout the game!
Magic of Calico - We wanted there to be no limits to how you could find happiness in Calico. Magic potions are a system that allows us to break the rules of what is possible and to find what would be most fun. Example: the More-to-pet Potion allows the player to magically turn a single animal giant-sized! Yes, that means you can ride a giant cat!
All Animals are Interactive - The player will encounter many animals in the world of Calico. Once befriended, you can name them, add them to your party, or send them to their new home at the café. Animals in your party will follow you everywhere you go and listen to your commands. The animals in your café will relax and play with any customers that pop in for a visit.
Café Decoration - Your task in Calico is to bring the town's café back to life again. This isn’t just achieved by bringing in cats and animals alone, however – you can also decorate your café with furniture and toys! We have a full system that allows you to collect and arrange furniture, decorations, and toys. Some furniture is for the café’s human visitors, while other furniture is meant for your animal friends (like cat trees, scratching posts, and dog beds, to name a few options!). As of our Garden Furniture Update, the café’s exterior can also be arranged to your liking.
