PC Gamer’s Kara Phillips finds tranquility in restoring the wetlands of Kamaeru: A Frog Refuge, the cozy frog sanctuary farming sim developed by Humble Reeds and published by Armor Games Studios, available now on Nintendo Switch, PC via Steam, and Xbox Series X|S.

Between digging ponds and farming crops, you’ll use your harvest to create goods to sell and reinvest your profit into your sanctuary. Basically, everything you do is for the benefit of the wetlands, which makes the experience feel more fulfilling. Don’t get me wrong, I love the satisfaction of restoring a derelict farm or an abandoned town, but there’s something beautiful about watching life return to a natural habitat, which I sometimes miss in farming sims.

But even though a lot of my time with Kamaeru was spent fawning over the adorable amphibians I was responsible for, the story is what resonated with me the most. The wetlands you’re restoring are more than just any old location. As the game introduces at the start, the wetlands were one of your favourite places to visit in your childhood, but over the years they’ve been abandoned. Paired with the excitement of getting new frogs to visit, this is all the motivation you need to pour hours of your time into Kamaeru.
