Spry Fox and The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild are thrilled to share that the Autumn Update for critically acclaimed life-sim game Cozy Grove is now live! This update marks the second major feature update since the game’s release in April and introduces a number of player-requested features and new activities. Cozy Grove is rated E10+ by the ESRB and is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 & 5, and Xbox One & Series X|S for $14.99 USD.
Spooky season is upon us and as the nights get longer and the weather gets cooler, it’s time to cozy up in your tent with your favorite furry friend to stay warm. That’s right – you can now go inside your tent and decorate the interior with brand new decorations, and you can even bring home your very own pet cat! Cats aren’t the only new animals being introduced in this update – spirit bunnies have hopped their way to the island and are available to add to your collection of spirit animals. Those bunnies are sure to get hungry so we’ve added a way to harvest all your nearby plants at once with the power of music! Playing some tunes on your new, magical accordion will make your daily chores a breeze. With all these autumnal activities, you’ll want a way to document and share your adventures with all your bear buds, and now you can with a fun new photography quest. Grab your camera and some film from Mr. Kit and start snapping pics all around your island!

About Cozy Grove:
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!
About Spry Fox:
Spry Fox’s motto is “make the world a better place.” We try to do that through the games we make, whether that’s by designing MMOs that encourage the development of friendships and discourage toxicity, or by designing our puzzle game, Alphabear 2, to promote English language learning. We’re always asking ourselves “how does this game improve your life?” Spry Fox has been profitably making games for over 10 years. It was founded by David Edery and Daniel Cook, two well-known veteran game developers. Our breakout hit Triple Town kicked off the increasingly popular merge genre. Games include the award-winning Alphabear (word game), Alphabear 2 (word game), Realm of the Mad God (action MMO), Road Not Taken (puzzle rogue-like). Lately we’ve been focusing on life-sim games with Beartopia (idle MMO) and our upcoming Cozy Grove (life-sim). The Alphabear characters that show up in most of our games are recognized and loved by millions of players. We have experience with a variety of platforms including PC, console, mobile and VR. The studio currently has approximately 20 developers and we pride ourselves on avoiding crunch and maintaining a good work-life balance.
About The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild:
We’ve always been indie, and we want to give indie studios the deals they deserve. The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild was founded in 2011 and received global critical acclaim for our early titles ‘The Bridge’ and ‘Tumblestone.’ In 2019, we focused on collaborating with indie developers publishing on PC and consoles to provide opportunities on every platform available. Recently publishing ‘Space Otter Charlie’ and ‘Cozy Grove’ further expanded our library, adding adventure puzzle platformers and slice of life games to our catalog. Look forward to award-winning games ‘Sail Forth’ and ‘Freshly Frosted’ releasing from QAG soon.
