I picked up Story of Season Trio of Towns the other day and immediately after 10+ minutes I disliked it. The graphics and the way the story telling was done really put me off. Sometimes I wonder if it's because Rpg Maker and gaming taught me that the scene of the "family talk"(where a family of four talk on couches with a table between them) were really just 4 models rocking their heads back and form in looping animation and emote bubbles above their to show emotions were all really poor imitations to real life talking. Or maybe I am just growing older. I just felt it was poor everything.
Harvest Moon Animal Parade isn't the best thing either but I enjoyed the graphics and characters more.
So in case anyone is playing HARVEST MOON ANOTHER WONDERFUL LIFE you may want to read this:
Turn on your game cube, start the game, take out the controller and put it in the 4th slot. While in the fourth slot press the z button. Put it back in the first slot to resume play. BAM. 99 of all possible tools on the first page, your other inventory slots filled with randoms items, foods and recipes.
The only thing I could warn of is being too rich when selling everything....
I guess one of the best farming games I have played would be God Eater. The reason is because you get to farm for materials that create awesome weapons and outfits, while also gaining experience while farming for those materials.
There are plenty of great Farming games out there. My top favorite ones are:
1. Stardew Valley
If there’s any game that comes close to Harvest Moon in terms of gameplay and graphics then it’s definitely Stardew Valley. This popular indie hit actually takes the Harvest Moon formula to a whole new level and expands on it. The game offers an even larger world than Harvest Moon where you get to enjoy your farm life, grow crops, raise poultry, and all those farm gimmicks that you love performing. Stardew Valley is definitely considered the new Harvest Moon, or at the very least the closest thing to Harvest Moon you can get right now. So, definitely give this one a try.
This is not your average gardening or farming game where you grow fruits and veggies, instead in Voodoo Garden, you get to grow all the herbs, fruits, veggies, and shrubs that can be further used in your production of occult accessories. You also get to catch wild swamp animals that come in handy when making products for your voodoo magic. You also have the option to raise cute pets that will keep you company which can then be sacrificed to gain magical advantage, sounds fun right? This is where your average farming game meets magical enchanting. Try it out to learn some amazing voodoo magic.
Well, I'm quickly recovering from Covid, but I'm still broke and injured lol. I miss working on my game! I think I've figured out a lore-friendly way to do a tutorial section separate from the main gameplay, but it'll take some scripting know-how. Which I don't have. And can't afford.
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And—which is more—you'll be a Man, my son!
