A really fun and relaxing game.
I’m a bit sad it has such a mixed review score.
There’s not really a big challenge to anything you do ingame, however to me this was perfectly fine.
I wanted to play a really laid back game, which is exactly what Moonglow Bay seemed to be.
And I got even more.
You can just chill, catch a few fish, cook, collect pieces of the story behind your character and the citizens of the bay.
You’ll progress through quite the variety of biomes and there’s lots of interesting fish to find, that all have nice little myths the people of the bay affiliate them with.

I really can’t recommend the game in it’s current state. There’s just too many bugs ranging from small visual things to currently unfixable softlocks. I’m currently stuck, unable to progress through a bossfight because it simply won’t continue. I see too many other issues like this in the game’s discord as well. Keyboard support seems like a very last moment addition; on launch, the controls were wonky and you couldn’t even save your game. They updated the controls, but there’s still no way to rebind anything. The game also doesn’t use the mouse, which is strange for a game with analog input in sections. I really wish this game had had some sort of early access/open beta period to iron out the more obvious and game-breaking issues before launch.
