Indie developer Jess Yu has announced the upcoming launch of Usagi Shima, the solo dev's idle bunny-collecting title on iOS and Android. Coming to mobile on September 1st, the charming game lets you give little wayward rabbits plenty of TLC to make them feel at home on an abandoned island.

In Usagi Shima, you can look forward to all the cosy vibes as you decorate your island, nurture your curious bunnies, and feed them to keep their tummies happy and healthy. You can also pet them and dress them up in lovely little hats - then, take photos of your memories with them to remember them forever.

The game gives off plenty of Neko Atsume vibes, and, as a huge fan of that cat-collecting game, I do find this one immeasurably appealing. The hand-drawn aesthetic adds to the relaxing feel as well - plus, the atmosphere (and game name!) takes inspiration from the real-life island of Okunoshima in Japan (where bunny inhabitants roam the land too).
