Publisher Coatsink and developers Bunnyhug are unfortunately announcing Moonglow Bay, the story-driven ‘slice-of-life’ fishing RPG set in a fishing town afraid to fish, will be departing the bay a little later than expected. Originally planned to release October 7th, Moonglow Bay is now expected to set sail on 26th October for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One Consoles, Xbox Game Pass for Console, Xbox Game Pass for PC, and Steam.
Epic Games Store is still set to release on November 11th. Moonglow Bay is priced at £19.99 / $24.99 USD / €24.99 SRP across all platforms.
Developer Bunnhug offered the following statement addressing the 19-day delay:
“The game is delayed, but not by much! We at Bunnyhug have been working on Moonglow Bay for 4 years alongside Coatsink to make the best experience possible. Sadly, over the last few weeks, we’ve been encountering some pesky bugs which have made getting a clean release build difficult. The game is now in a good place and in the final stage of development, but still needs to pass the final hurdles, so to ensure all is right as rain, we’ll be releasing Moonglow Bay on October 26! We hope you can enjoy what’s coming!” – The Bunnyhug team
Moonglow Bay was once the jewel of the Eastern Canadian coastline until rumours of dangerous, fantastical creatures ruined the fishing trade. With the town on the verge of bankruptcy and only one year until its centennial, you decide to fulfill your partner’s final wish of starting a business in a decisive attempt to revive the town.
Along the way you will befriend locals and encounter strange fish, cook and sell a variety of recipes; acquire new equipment, such as rods and a fishing boat; learn to cast nets, set traps, and fish through the ice. Explore the furthest reaches of the bay, from frigid glaciers to boiling geysers; and ultimately determine if there is any truth to the tales…
Combining a playful voxel art style and a sumptuous soundtrack, Moonglow Bay features distinct story arcs, 100+ aquatic species to discover, monster encounters, and a fully-inhabited town to explore, which can be enjoyed both single-player or with drop-in-drop-out local co-op. Explore the ocean, grow your business and restore life to an enchanting coastal town!
