Adorable Home is an idle game that gives off Neko Atsume vibes in its cute art style and gameplay. It’s an easy game to play and doesn’t require lots of time out of your day. 

The first thing you are tasked with doing when opening the game is choosing a character to play. There is an array of characters to choose from, but they aren’t culturally diverse from the visual since (nor are they physically diverse). This is a detractor, as everyone should be able to be represented in a game they play. This is the only thing the game really needs to change for it to be truly great. The only representation in the game is the option to have queer couples, which is a step in the right direction, well, more of a foot in the door. 

The gameplay is simple. Check the game occasionally, make meals for your in-game partner, take pictures with them and your cats, care for your cats, and buy furniture to decorate your home. The come check-in method of gameplay has been popularized by games like Neko Atsume. Similarly progression through the game, with the goal of decorating your home to your liking, takes quite a long time. If you’re not patient you have the option to spend real-world money for in-game money that you can then use to purchase items, but that will quickly become quite expensive. 

The game is quite chill, and if you like games that you only have to check occasionally it may be worth it. But, be aware of the games lack of diversity.
