At first glance you might think Hokko Life is an Animal Crossing inspired life sim game. Of course, it is. You don't need to any kind of special degree or super power to see that is what the developers set out to do. They're also not shy at admitting that. But is it a direct clone? Does it bring anything unique to genre and that specific "animal crossing" style genre? I have plenty to share in this review! As always let's break down the categories.
Bear and Breakfast is the newest entry into the cozy genre from the folks at Gummy Cat. Bringing the fun idea to run a bed and breakfast, as a bear, in the wilderness was a fun, original, and extremely exciting prospect for many of us in the cozy space! The game will have you cleaning out old, abandoned buildings and sprucing them up with decor and the various things you can build, or trade junk for. Literally, you pick up leftovers as a form of currency to trade to a dumpster managing racoon in order to obtain things like rugs, lighting, and even new recipes for crafting.
Without further ado, let's get into our categories today.
You play as Hank a friendly, goofy, bear who lives with his mom and 2 friends. One is a grumpy pigeon who is all about cash. The other is an over eager go getter doggo. You finally get to leave home to get something for mom, but one thing leads to another and after a "chance" encounter with a literal loan shark the trio finds themselves signing a contract to start a bed and breakfast. Their hopes are to bring humans back to the wilderness, so the wildlife has more access to fresher garbage and trash.
