The upcoming game Melon Journey: Bittersweet Memories is coming to North America, March 7, 2023, on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch. This retro-inspired story-exploration game was developed by Froach Club in conjunction with Poppy Works and published by XSEED Games.

The story begins with a melon factory employee Honeydew who discovers that her friend Cantaloupe is missing. She immediately ducks out of her shift at Eglantine Industries and heads to Hog Town, a place where corruption is aplenty and melons are outlawed.

As Honeydew starts her search, a wide range of intertwining mysteries start to unfold. For example, is the Cavity Crew really as dangerous as they seem? What about the Kitten King? Is it responsible for the troubles in Hog Town?

Honeydew needs to look into every nook and cranny of this green-tinted pixelated world, with each step accompanied by the beats of the jazzy lo-fi soundtrack. This monochromatic mystery comes packed with a lot of eccentric personalities.
