Fantasy Farming: Orange Season - Version 0.2.8

Orange Town was once a place with no future. People were moving away with their kids, searching for better places to live and few remained there. One of those kids was Julia, who always dreamt of going back to her hometown. She studied business in college and along with her siblings, went back there with the dream of improving the town so that families no longer had any reason to move away. Thanks to her hard work, business in Orange Town improved a lot under her leadership, making it so that young people moved there looking for opportunities instead.

You're one of those people, with your own dream: to become a farmer, have a piece of land you can call your own and make your living from it. An unusual dream, but one that your parents fully supported after hearing you tell about it for years and years. Now that you're finally old enough, they bought you a piece of land and wished you luck, hoping that someday you'll pay them back.

Orange Season is a farm life simulator made with Rpg Maker MV, inspired by games like Harvest Moon, Rune Factory and Animal Crossing.

I've been working in this project since september of 2014. The project thread has been up since december of that same year. It was first started in Rpg Maker Vx Ace using Celianna's Rural Farm Tiles, but after the release of Rpg Maker MV I started it all over again using Sharm's Pixel Myth: Germania.

It is now available on Early Access so that I can receive more feedback from the community. Listening to what they like and dislike about it, I hope to make a great game.

Game Features:

  • High focus on exploration, with over a hundred hand crafted areas (mountains, forests, caves, lakes, deserts and much more).
  • Three different towns, with different themes and dozens of characters each.
  • Several festivals inspired by real life festivities from around the world.
  • More than 30 different types of animals.
  • Many different types of farm produce.
  • Marriage system with over 10 marriage candidates.
  • Rival Marriage system, without predefined couples.
  • Farm customization (you can move your buildings around and place objects on the floor).
  • Several minigames.
  • Share a single farm and inventory across different save files, so you can marry different villagers without replaying the whole game.
  • Companion System: You can ask a villager to hang out with you, or take one of your animals for a walk. They will follow you and participate on everything you do.
  • Mod System: Every single detail of the game can be modified by installing mods on them.
  • Open Source: The whole game code will be available on release, so modders can change anything they want.

* Not all of those features are available on the early access version, check the store page for more info.

What does exactly that mean @Hudell ? We can watch someone playing OS or what?
Discord is a chat application where anyone can create a server. A discord server is basically like a community.

Yeah, it's just for chatting with other people who also play the game. Basically the same thing as a forum, in a simpler format.

Update 0.2.8: http://hudell.com/blog/orange-season-update-0-2-8/

Since the last time I've updated this thread, there has been a lot of cool stuff added to the game: a lot of new areas, the companion system, new tasks, new NPCs, new conversations, sprinklers and even a huge recoloring of the tilesets.

If there was an award for best game dev procrastination, I'd say 'meh, I'll pick it up tomorrow' >_>
Honestly though, I've been staring at the same half-made map for a while now haha! Ahhh, I'm so tired of mapping!
Time to add the support for import/export default RMXP maps. Maybe there will be customized tileset support later. In theory, I can reimplement the entire RMXP inside this RMXP-made game to make more RMXP games. :kaojoy:RMXPFORMATSUPPORT.jpg
Gonna make a story driven game someday in RPG Maker about this diseased character in my head. Will keep you posted, although I was warned by the authorities that posting too much would be considered 'spamming' so I WON'T SPAM. It'll be before I go in anyways. It's gonna be messed up but it won't be explicitly pornographic so don't worry, I'll give all the content warnings. :barf::barf::barf:
If you're a RM plugin developer, and you're reading this...

Thank you. You're awesome. Even if I haven't used your plugin, your work is appreciated.
