Developer Humble Reeds and publisher Armor Games Studios have shared that the upcoming farming sim Kamaeru: A Frog Refuge will also be released on Nintendo Switch sometime in mid-2024. It was originally announced for PC via Steam.

In Kamaeru, players can live out their ribbit dreams as they can tame, breed, and collect 500+ frogs in a customizable habitat. It might be similar to many other simulation games out there, but the game’s concept and art style seem uniquely charming. There will be a bunch of quests and objectives to complete if you want to help all your friendly croakers. Without further ado, let’s hop right in!

Kamaeru: A Frog Refuge Overview

Kamaeru is a cozy farming sim about collecting and raising frogs, farming, and preserving nature. You play as a kind soul helping an old friend restore the wetlands of your childhood by transforming them into a safe haven for friendly little frogs. With the help of the game’s cast of welcoming NPCs, you will photograph and breed frogs to increase your reputation, decorate your refuge, and plant native crops to help your amphibian abode thrive!

Key Features

Collect frogs

Feed, breed, collect, and raise all of the game’s 500+ frogs! It’s up to you to figure out the secret to attracting new and adorable frogs. You can complete your collection by unlocking all the rare colors through a special breeding mini-game. When new ones join your refuge, use the in-game camera to take photos of them and collect them for your frogedex!

Restore the wetlands

In order to succeed in your quest for frog preservation, you will need to restore the nearby wetlands to their former glory. This will allow you to continually support and cultivate the area through a process known as paludiculture!

Dig ponds to let water roam the land again and plant native wetlands species to harvest precious crops. From there, you can transform your pickings into manufactured goods that can be sold to improve your froggy habitat further!

Customize your frog refuge

New furniture will bring new frogs with it! As you personalize your habitat, new breeds of frogs will be attracted to specific kinds of furniture. Plus, it’ll attract attention to the area–and with it, new visitors! You can even repaint furniture to better fit your own unique style sensibilities.
