An essential part of the gameplay in this business is the café management part. When a player opens a café, islanders and travelers come as customers. You can listen to their requests and, in mini-game style, make coffee and cook food. If you can satisfy their needs, the reputation of the café will improve, leading to the development of the café.

In terms of store operations, you not only manage the café, but you can also host special events such as birthday parties and weddings upon customer request.
You can further improve the reputation of the café by setting up the furniture according to the event and preparing creatures that will be appreciated. The goal is to make the event a success and increase the popularity and reputation of the café.

As mentioned earlier, the player must rescue the creatures. As the store's reputation increases, customers will gain mysterious information about Critter, and by relying on that information, they can enter a “mysterious portal” located on the island and rescue Critter.
Inside the portal is a sort of puzzle dungeon, where you can pull levers and press switches to solve environmental puzzles and advance to the creature. According to Gregory, there will be more things you can do in the dungeon as you explore, such as obtaining items needed to solve puzzles and introducing new devices.

If you can find and rescue the creature safely, you can return it to the café. Critter and the main character have a teacher-like bond, and as this bond deepens, Critter's appearance changes and he can gain special abilities that are useful for running the café.
