Inspired by some of the most relaxing games on the planet like Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing, Yokai Inn has you befriending spirits and monsters of folklore that emerge from an abandoned inn as the sun sets. With their help, you'll restore the inn to its former glory and breathe new life into the surrounding area.

Yokai Inn is admittedly in the early stages of development, so don't expect to be playing this any time soon. Close to a dozen screenshots on the game's website paints a perfect picture of what to expect, however. You can even listen to an in-game track produced by Moonsailor over on Twitter.
