Lonesome Village takes elements of life-sim legends and a large handful of Zelda references and wraps them together in very cute packaging. It may not have the richest narrative, but it will absorb and soothe you – even in its short playtime. Barring a few drawbacks with player experience, specifically around menu navigation, this game offers up some good wholesome fun without the sweaty button-mashing of combat. If you're puzzling over a new cosy game to play, Lonesome Village just might be your solution.

Lonesome Village it's a great hybrid between games like The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing. Sometimes it tries to be different, but in some areas the effort it's not good enough to make us forget about the other games.

A delightful refreshing new story for a cosy sim blends with an extremely creative puzzler in Lonesome Village, which features a cute art style and relaxing vibes throughout. With a few patches to address crashing, it could be among the best in the genre. Even with these issues though, the game gets my recommendation with a caveat to save often so you don’t lose your progress.

Lonesome Village is a sweet, wholesome adventure game; the standout feature for me was all the puzzles I enjoyed. The game took around 6-7 hours to complete, but I think that will depend on how quick you are at solving the puzzles. It is suitable for all ages to play, even though younger children might need help completing some puzzles
