Harvest Moon game description
Ever wanted to live life on a farm, with nothing but the sun, the fresh scent of your crops, the muddy fields underneath, and cows and chickens to keep you company? Well, you’re in luck, because you have just inherited your grandfather’s ranch, but it’s in a terrible state of disrepair! What ever can you do?
You’re going to do like the farmers do; roll up your sleeves, get down in that dirt, fix that farm up and make it the best farm anyone has ever seen! It sure gets lonely on that farm…but not to worry! There are plenty of girls in the village, and if you treat them right and manage to win their love, you’ve got yourself a wife!
The game follows a young boy charged with maintaining his absent father’s farm. The primary objective of the Harvest Moon video game series is to restore and maintain a farm that has fallen into disrepair. The player decides how to allocate time between daily tasks, such as farming, raising livestock, fishing, and foraging.
For vegetables to develop, they must receive water each day; lack of water does not kill crops, but prevents them from growing. Animals must be fed once a day to keep them producing. While the only care that chickens require is feeding, cows must be continually talked to, brushed, and milked to retain their health. A cow may become sick if not fed for a day and, if untreated, sickness can lead to death. Chickens may die if left outside, where they can be blown away in a storm or eaten by wild dogs. After dark, the only business in town that the player can access is the bar, where a number of non-player characters gather to drink and talk.
So let’s go, farmer! You’ve got 2 years to make a name for yourself on that farm! Work hard, and the rewards will be great!
