SEATTLE, WA - April 26, 2022 - Spry Fox and The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild are excited to announce that the first major DLC for critically acclaimed life-sim game Cozy Grove launches today! The New Neighbears DLC introduces four new bear NPCs with full storylines, along with new outfits, a new background music track, and more. The New Neighbears DLC is rated E10+ by the ESRB and is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 & 5, Xbox One & Series X|S, Steam, and EGS for USD $6.99, as well as to all iOS users via Apple Arcade.

After helping the original Cozy Grove bears reach peace, players will discover four new bears in need of guidance in the afterlife. With extended stories that are amusing, delightful, and, at times, heartbreaking, these new bears take full advantage of the many new activities that have been added to the game over the past year, as well as the new content added in the DLC.

The New Neighbears DLC includes:
- Four new bears with full storylines
- New outfits that match the new bears
- An exclusive rainbow cat
- A peaceful new background music track
- A new critter to catch, butterflies
- Fifty extra closet storage spots

In addition, the free for everyone Spring Festival brings Ms. Carouse back to the island along with a new type of flower, adorable ducklings in need of guidance, and more. A new permanent feature, the decoration dye system, lets players customize the colors of their decorations.

About Spry Fox
Spry Fox's motto is "make the world a better place." We try to do that through the games we make, whether that's by designing MMOs that encourage the development of friendships and discourage toxicity, or by designing our puzzle game, Alphabear 2, to promote English language learning. We're always asking ourselves "how does this game improve your life?" Spry Fox has been profitably making games for over 10 years. It was founded by David Edery and Daniel Cook, two well-known veteran game developers. Our breakout hit Triple Town kicked off the increasingly popular merge genre. Games include the award-winning Alphabear (word game), Alphabear 2 (word game), Realm of the Mad God (action MMO), Road Not Taken (puzzle rogue-like). Lately we've been focusing on life-sim games with Beartopia (idle MMO) and our upcoming Cozy Grove (life-sim). The Alphabear characters that show up in most of our games are recognized and loved by millions of players. We have experience with a variety of platforms including PC, console, mobile and VR. The studio currently has approximately 20 developers and we pride ourselves on avoiding crunch and maintaining a good work-life balance.

About The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild
QAG got started in 2011, creating the award-winning puzzle games 'The Bridge' and 'Tumblestone.' Since then we've teamed up with fantastic studios from around the world to help them bring their games to more players and platforms. Look forward to award-winning games 'Sail Forth' and 'Freshly Frosted' releasing from QAG soon.
