Mail Time is an adorable cottagecore collect-a-thon platforming adventure.

Mail Time is a relaxing, cottagecore adventure set in a peaceful forest, far, far away. Use each job as an opportunity to explore the forest, meet diverse and cute critters around Grumblewood Grove, handle their packages with the utmost care, and listen to each of their stories. Motivate a training-focused turtle, act as the wingmate of a snail with a secret crush, or join an old soul as they relive their best memories.

Jump and bounce onto mushrooms or branches to discover dilapidated delivery routes and collect special bottle caps hidden throughout eight different locations full of cozy vibes. Personalize the protagonist Mail Scout with more than 46,000 combinations between their pronouns, colors, hair style, mail bag, clothing, and skin tone. Grumblewood Grove welcomes anyone and everyone to make a home here. 

Their recipients eagerly await the sight of your mushroom hat, so don't tarry! That's right. It's Mail Time!

“Q1 was a smash success for us this year and we are already on the edge of our seat to keep the ball rolling later this month,” said Benjamin Tarsa, Director of Publishing, Freedom Games. “Gain some fighting cred a few weeks from now in Troublemaker, and then take a quick hop, skip, and a jump into Mail Time next month. This is just the beginning of many thrilling announcements our community can look forward to this year!”
