Autumn is a big season for fans of cozy games, as they often commend the experience of curling up with one on a chilly evening. As a result, many new cozy gaming titles are scheduled for release as the season changes and begins to transition into fall.
In Wayward Strand, players follow young journalist Casey Beaumaris on her visit to an airborne hospital. A narrative-focused game, Wayward Strand, plays out in real time, forcing the player to choose what stories to prioritize on each playthrough. Casey can explore the facility, interact with the patients, and use her notebook to compile all the information she's learning along the way.
Each interaction can unlock new details or story elements, making the game heavily replayable. Wayward Strand launches on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One X, and Steam on September 15, 2022.
