Critic Reviews for Moonglow Bay

Moonglow Bay is a genuinely moving and surprisingly feel-good tale about coming to terms with grief and embracing change.

Its voxel art visuals are beautiful and the soundtrack is suitably chill. Moonglow Bay has been developed by a truly passionate team, one with so many great ideas that, in trying to implement them all, perhaps haven’t had the time or experience to flesh them out with the depth they truly deserve. Still, if the idea of saving a town through fishing sounds like your cup of tea, Moonglow Bay is worth checking out. Just be prepared for a rather simplistic ride.

‎Even knowing that it is surely not a title for all audiences, I really think that Moonglow Bay is a totally recommended experience for anyone who enjoys these titles of more relaxing cut and without haste, which by the way, manages to do something that ‎‎Lake‎‎ could barely: Totally disconnect from everything, and enjoy the experience without having to go around asking "Have we already arrived in India?".‎

There are sparks of greatness all throughout Moonglow Bay but are almost all buried beneath a mountain of technical issues.

This kind of game is a welcome change to the farming/life RPG genre. If you are a player that enjoys fishing in games, then this is the game for you because it’s all fishing, all the time. Moonglow Bay is overall a fun, relaxing game, but it struggles with controls, game-breaking bugs, and glitches that can ruin the game.

Moonglow Bay offers is an escapade to a seaside fishing town, but at times, it gets a little fishy.

Moonglow Bay starts strong with its emotional story and initially solid gameplay loop of fishing and cooking. Unfortunately, bugs and the lack of variety quickly become its downfall, resulting in an experience that grows more bland and frustrating to play the further you progress.

Moonglow Bay is a fun and relaxing game that I found very rewarding to play, there's a huge variety of things to do in this game so I never get tired of it. Every day I play I can't wait to go back and see what monster-sized fish I manage to catch and see what kind of new dishes I get to create in the kitchen.
