Everything We Know About Winter Burrow

Winter Burrow Story Plot


In Winter Burrow, you play a tiny mouse who comes home from the city, hoping to retire there and live again in the comfort of the country woodlands. Instead, you find that your childhood home is now in ruins, and its caretaker-slash-neighbor, your aunt, has also gone missing. In this cozy woodland tale, you hope to achieve two things; restore your childhood tree stump home back to its former glory, and locate your aunt’s whereabouts.

Winter Burrow Gameplay

As a survival game, players will explore, gather resources from across the woodland, craft the necessary tools, knit warm clothing to protect your pocket-sized mouse character from the harsh winter, bake scrumptious pies, and meet the locals of the little woodland hamlet you now call home. Expand your survival knowledge by venturing out into the frozen wilderness to collect what you need, and also combat the hostile insects that stand in your way.

Even if it’s a survival game, you can play at your own pace! It features cozy and approachable mechanics, letting you choose a path that fits your play style. After all, this is your story.
