Cozy platform shoe This week, Mail Time arrived, granting you the opportunity to become a Mail Scout, replete with mushroom hat and paraglider, delivering mail to woodland creatures throughout the vast Grumblewood Grove. Developer Kela van der Deijl describes it as a “cozy, cottagecore light-platforming adventure” with an emphasis on exploration.
You traverse distinct environments, such as a woodland hamlet and murky swamp, using various jumping and gliding abilities, such as bouncing on giant mushrooms. In order to earn your Mail Scout badges, you will be challenged with collection-like gathering of secretive or hidden items as you deliver mail. These badges subsequently enhance your ability to glide.
If the words “mushroom hat” make you happy, then come on in.
It is a super-relaxed game with variable pacing based on the player’s desires and abilities; for instance, there are multiple accessibility options and no fall injury. You can also modify the appearance of your Mail Scout, including the knapsack, hairstyle, and skin tones.
Mail Time has been well-received by critics and players, with 81% positive reviews on Steam. The game is akin to exploring a tranquil fairy-tale world. In February 2022, it was funded by a Kickstarter campaign and created by a small team led by Kela van der Deijl, with Gina Lughlion composing the music and Bloo van der Deijl writing the script.
Players have noted that it contains the types of problems you might find in an independent game; those who are sensitive to such issues may wish to wait a few weeks.
Mail Time is available on Epic(opens in new tab) and Steam(opens in new tab) for $20 or at a discount of 20% until May 4th and May 11th, respectively. It is also available on the game’s official website, mailtimegame.com (opens in new browser).
Mail Time appears good. Will it eventually make the list of the Best Cozy PC Games(opens in a new tab)? That, I obviously do not know. I will anxiously await the next update regarding this matter.
