Calico is a rough gem.
It is a fun cutesy cat/animal cafe sim set into a gorgeous pastel colour world. Your task is to befriend the locals whilst running your cafe and accomodating their needs. The world is filled with a selection of animals that you can tame and bring at your cafe.
In addition to that you can also ride them in order to make your travels faster.
The game usses the ragdoll mechanics a lot when it comes to picking up animals which makes the whole thing feel clanky. Other than that another minor/major issue depending on where you encounter them are glitches. At the moment I'm stuck with a quest as I am not able to talk with the character that would let finish the quest and progress with the story. If you encountered the same bug please let me know.
The interaction with the NPCs is quite lacking. To compare it with Stardew Valley, even with the repetitive texts the characters feel less dead, less like NPC than those of Callico.
Overall, Calico is a rough gem and I really hope that the creator(s) will continue polishing it. It is a game worth picking as you will probably get 20-30h+ out of it for the price.
