Rolling Hills: Make Sushi, Make Friends Impressions

Rolling Hills: Make Sushi, Make Friends isn’t your typical restaurant simulator. Sure, you’ll be crafting delectable rolls and nigiri, but at its heart, this game is about forging connections and becoming a part of a charming little community. Stepping into the shoes of a sushi-making robot, you’ll find yourself in a picturesque village nestled amongst rolling hills – a stark contrast to the sterile labs you might be accustomed to.

The art style is a delightful blend of soft colors and whimsical character designs. The soundtrack is equally calming, with gentle melodies that perfectly complement the game’s laid-back atmosphere. As you explore Rolling Hills, you’ll meet a cast of quirky and endearing townsfolk, each with their own personality and backstory. From the gruff but kindhearted fisherman to the eccentric artist yearning for inspiration, getting to know these characters is a genuine pleasure.


The core gameplay loop revolves around running your sushi restaurant. You’ll spend your days gathering ingredients, prepping dishes, and serving customers. The sushi-making itself is surprisingly intuitive, with mini-games that capture the essence of rolling rice and slicing fish without being overly complex. As you progress, you’ll unlock new recipes and expand your menu, keeping your customers coming back for more.

But Rolling Hills is about more than just serving perfect sushi. It’s about building relationships with the townsfolk. Completing quests for them unlocks new ingredients, upgrades for your restaurant, and even special recipes. You might find yourself helping the local carpenter expand your shop, or assisting the shy librarian with a secret passion for wasabi. These quests are often heartwarming and humorous, adding a delightful layer of depth to the gameplay.

The game’s progression feels wonderfully organic. There are no strict goals or deadlines, allowing you to explore the world and befriend the townspeople at your own pace. You can spend an entire day perfecting your sushi skills, or take a break to chat with your neighbors and learn about their lives. This freedom to choose your own path is incredibly refreshing and contributes significantly to the game’s relaxing atmosphere.


While Rolling Hills might not be the most challenging game out there, its charm lies in its simplicity. It’s a delightful escape from the everyday hustle, offering a chance to unwind and immerse yourself in a world of good food and warm friendships. If you’re looking for a heartwarming and relaxing experience with a dash of sushi-making fun, Rolling Hills: Make Sushi, Make Friends is a delicious adventure waiting to be savored.
