Bear and Breakfast, one of Polygon’s most anticipated games of 2022, is coming to Nintendo Switch and Windows PC via Steam on July 28. A new trailer debuted with the launch date during Summer Game Fest’s Day of the Devs broadcast.

As it turns out, running a bed and breakfast is a little harder than it looks. Well, now we know!

From developer Gummy Cat, Bear and Breakfast first debuted during a Nintendo Indie World presentation in 2020, and instantly charmed the audience with its premise. That premise, of course, is that you’re a bear named Hank, who is opening a bed and breakfast with his friends. The game will have management sim elements a la 1997 classic Theme Hospital, with a linear story told alongside ... something to do with a creepy presence, deep within the woods.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of anything else I’d rather do than help a scruffy little bear rustle up some business in the woods. Part of that job, as Gummy Cat showed off in the new trailer, is cooking for guests via a mini-game. It looks perfect.
