Melon Journey

The cult classic RPG maker game that launched our careers
Made in just a week back in 2012

In this game you choose to play as either Cantaloupe  or Honeydew.
You find yourself in the outskirts of Hog Town, with your buddy nowhere to be seen. Ask around and see if any of the hedgehogs, hamsters, cats or dogs have any valuable info (but it may not come easy).

Full of inside jokes, Melon Journey sometimes doesn't make much sense but it was made with a lot of love for all our friends and the people we admire.

i love this game so much


I would love to play this on my Playdate! PLEASE!!!

This sweet little game has given me many hours of joy and comfort over the years. It is always a delight to explore its soft green world and solve the simple problems of its silly little characters.

The Japanese version of GB ROM will be available, but do you have any plans to release a non-GB Japanese version, such as an itch.io version?

A sweet, wonderful game! 

I've followed you on insta for quite awhile and finally decided to try Melon Journey. I really liked playing the Hamtaro GB/GBA games as a kid and this gives me some serious nostalgia.Super excited for #2 and plan to buy it on Switch!

Thanks for the relaxing evening -- and I hope you make many more games <3 <3!

Thank you Froach Club. I enjoyed Melon Journey and the characters are so lovable. It worked for me on Steam Deck with a little tinkering on Proton 7.0-6. Any plans for an official Steam or Switch eShop release for MJ1?

I pre-ordered the Limited Edition of Bittersweet Memories for Switch. So excited and can't wait! 


I'm having issues getting the game to start up. Itch says it's running but the game isn't active? Anyway excited to check out the game if I can figure out the issue. Thanks!


So cute ~ 

(P.S. Cantaloupe and Honeydew are the name of my ducks haha)


Hi! I made a speedrun site for this cute game 8 months ago, here is the link: https://www.speedrun.com/melon_journey


What a nice game. It's like those brain teaser puzzles, but with much more cuteness and wholesomeness. Ending was so great.

Believe me, I can hardly wait to play the sequel!


I was looking for games to play in my stream and I came across this! I loved playing every minute of it, the sprites and the characters are so cute. It's a simple quest game but loads of fun! https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1235100577

*****for anyone having trouble running the mac version, we just uploaded a new version "MJ MacOS (uses EasyRPG)" that should work for you*****

I am also having difficulty opening on Mac IOS, on the desktop it gives an error message and in the application file it acts like it's going to open but just never loads


I thought that this game was beautiful. I really loved it and found myself getting lost in it. I played this for my Indie Game Showcase and if you haven't had the pleasure of playing it. I think you should. 


on mac OSX gives error :-(

You can try moving it to the desktop or applications folder before running, it might work

I downloaded the OSX version and I'm having trouble installing. Can anyone tell me what to do?

you shouldn't have to install anything, just unzip the file and open Melon Journey.app

I'm having trouble figuring out how to get it started...

are you on mac or windows? on windows just open RPG_RT.exe to run the game.


this game is so cute, i loved it

how do you save in the game? i can't seem to figure it out lol

You need to find the house of the Bear who Saves Everything!
