I do know we’re not even midway via this massive summer time gaming glut, however can we simply cease right right here? I’ve discovered the game I need to play and I needn’t see any extra video games. Let’s simply shut issues down so I can go play Bear and Breakfast when it releases subsequent month.

In Bear and Breakfast you’re a bear. Your identify is Hank. And you do what all nice, pleasant bears dream of: You run and handle a mattress and breakfast. Romanian developer Gummy Cat Studio spells it out of their phase at Day of the Devs, explaining how as Hank you may renovate previous buildings and repair them up so that they’re appropriate for visitors. Each visitor could have sure necessities, akin to consolation ranges, and you will have to match these expectations as you craft furnishings and place facilities like showers and beds in your rooms.

But it isn’t simply in regards to the beds, it is also in regards to the breakfasts. There’s a card-based cooking minigame, and you may see Hank making an attempt to make a yummy pancake breakfast by enjoying ingredient and directions playing cards. There’s additionally a narrative operating alongside “the usual management stuff.” There are characters to satisfy, like a park ranger and different woodland critters, and a world outdoors the B&B for Hank to discover.

Bear and Breakfast is a chill administration sim that will not rush you, however that does not imply there cannot be just a little drama. 

“There’s definitely no creepy subplot hidden somwhere in the forest,” game director Rares Cinteza says as we see Hank stroll right into a darkish and mysterious cave. 

It seems to be spooky, however I’m certain no matter horror Hank finds in that cave will heat as much as him as soon as it is had a number of pancakes and an excellent night time’s sleep.

Bear and Breakfast will launch on Steam on July 28, which isn’t practically quickly sufficient so far as I’m involved.
