Fancy a laid-back adventure set in a sleepy fishing village? Moonglow Bay, out today, might be worth checking out.
This ‘slice-of-life fishing RPG’ from Bunnyhug and Coatsink looks to be the perfect way to chill after a busy day at school or work. Playing as a character who sets out to fulfil their partner’s last wish to start a business, you find yourself in the once-bustling town of Moonglow Bay. Except… it’s not quite so shining anymore. The whole town is on the brink of bankruptcy; rumours of dangerous creatures lurking in the water ruined the once-lucrative fishing trade. But maybe, just maybe, your new business can breathe life back into the town.
And so, during your time with Moonglow Bay, you’ll make friends with the locals, learn to fish, cook new recipes, sell your food and, over time, acquire new fishing equipment and delve further out into the waters. And perhaps you’ll even discover whether those terrible rumours are actually true.
Moonglow Bay is the type of game that you can play at your own pace, making discoveries and simply enjoying time in the fictional town. It even supports drop-in local co-op, so you can play with a friend, too. If this sounds like your sort of thing, it’s available now on Xbox and PC. It’s also on Xbox Game Pass, so subscribers can play it as part of their membership for no extra cost. Nothing to lose then; go and give it a try!
Give the trailer a watch below. We’ll have more on Moonglow Bay later this week.
