Critic Reviews for Mail Time

Impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding them back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash.

Mail Time is less like cuddling up with a good book and more like falling asleep reading a Post Office pamphlet.

Mail Time is a tender adventure set in a fairytale forest, with simple and relaxing game mechanics and a very pleasant soundtrack.

Mail Time is a brief and lovely game for anyone who wants the tranquil experience of scouring a small open world while engaging with fun characters and doing favors. Although it gives the feeling that it could be more and lacks polish in some areas, the tale of the young wallet's first day of work is interesting and playful. It's like a picture book that you can jump into, glide and enjoy a relaxing pace.

Mail Time is a delightful experience, filled with interesting characters and almost no conflict. All the different quests are fun to engage with and the game offers a nice sense of discovery. I love being helpful and trying to make this small patch of forest a better place for everyone. The party at the end is also a great reward for all the exploration.

Bugs aside, though, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed our time with Mail Time. This is a cute, whimsical adventure that anyone who likes cosy, relaxing games will enjoy. The silly dialogue won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but we still reckon it’ll raise a smile or two even from the sternest of faces. Leave action and violence aside for a bit, and Mail Time is the ideal chilled-out experience to spend a couple of hours with.

If you like Lil Gator Game then you'll want to check out the adorable Mail Time as well even if it doesn't quite reach the same heights.

Mail Time is so far one of my favorite cozy games of 2023. And this is a cozy game — to a T. There's no violence — well, I mean, there is, unfortunately, a landlord, plus an offbeat caterpillar named Soks who might throw a real stinging quip or two your way. But in this casual platformer and collect-a-thon, there are no timers or penalties on your quests, no fall damage taken when you accidentally glide straight past your destination, and no real way to fail. It's a game where the biggest challenge is picking the cutest outfit, knapsack, and glider combo within the character creator. In short, Mail Time isn't perfect — but it's a two- to three-hour quest for joy and neighborly connection, and there's nothing wrong with that.
