Teacup the frog has a very ribbiting announcement! But she’s too shy to tell you herself, so she’s asked us to help her out. She’s hosting her tea party in a new location, and it’s happening very soon!
Whitethorn Games, publisher of cozy and casual titles like APICO, Lake, and Princess Farmer, is bringing developer Smarto Club’s wholesome narrative adventure game, Teacup, to mobile platforms! Players can plan the perfect tea party on iOS and Android devices starting on August 18, 2022.

Play as the titular Teacup, a shy and introverted young frog who loves drinking tea and reading. The day before she is to host a tea party at her house, she realizes she is completely out of tea, and thus must venture into the woods to find the herbs she needs to restock her pantry. Interact with a charming cast of characters, explore the woods in any way you wish, and prepare to put on the perfect party!
Key features of Teacup include:

  • Go on a narrative adventure in the beautifully drawn world of Little Pond! Collect the ingredients Teacup needs in any order to refresh her pantry.
  • Meet a charming cast of woodland creatures! Some are talkative, some are grumpy, but all of them will lend an ear on Teacup’s adventure.
  • Help the residents of the forest with their needs! Complete whimsical tasks and puzzles like organizing a market stall, winning an underwater race, and more!

Teacup will be available for mobile platforms on August 18, 2022. And if you can be-leaf it, Teacup is out now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam, Humble Store, and Epic Games Store.
