Everafter Launches Kickstarter, NISA HM:OW LE stock, and Lots of New PoOT Info | Posted at 01:37 PM 2020 11 13 November 2020

Happy Farm'n Friday! Last weekend we got the icicle lights attached to the eaves of the roof. This weekend I'll start on the porch columns and rafters, where it is nice and dry. As anticipated, the November rains have arrived and will last through all next week. I'll be spending the week installing more lights (had to burn some earned vacation days from work), and hope to have most of it complete by the time I have to return to office work. So far, the total light count is a little more than 3,100 bulbs.

In my Rune Factory 4 S update, I managed to explore Idra Cave and discovered that sleazeball Ethelberd and a Terrable dragon?! It's been a very long time since I saw those two in a Rune Factory game! As my protagonist is over-leveled at that point, Terrable wasn't terribly difficult to defeat. But then I was stuck for a while, as the soldiers had destroyed the bridge to Maya Road. I had thought that teleporting to "Maya Road Entrance" would just take me back to that destroyed bridge. What a surprise when I happened to try it after being stuck for days on where to go next. Now I'm back on the right track!

Everafter Falls now on Kickstarter

The post-"death" farming and town simulator game, Everafter Falls, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter:

Besides directing your pet to plant crops, players can also raise animals, build drones to tend fields, catch fish for the town aquarium, explore dungeons, customize their house, and complete requests from the animal villagers. The game has a scheduled release for March 2022 on Steam, and mid-2022 for Nintendo Switch. You can learn more about Everafter Falls on the Kickstarter page:


NIS America announced this week that half the preorder stock for the Limited Edition bundles of Harvest Moon: One World remains. There will be no more preorders of the LE available once NISA's preorders have been filled by fellow farmers.

This limited edition from NISA includes a physical copy of the game (either Ps4 or Nintendo Switch), a collector's box, a CD of the game's soundtrack, a cloth poster, and six lapel pins. The bundle costs $79.99 USD and has a March 2, 2021 ship date. You can preorder the bundle at the NISA website:

The NISA LE does not include the cute chicken plushie for farmers in the United States who preorder through GameStop (Switch or Playstation4).

New SoS:PoOT Profiles

Marvelous posted new mini-profiles of two more marriage candidates from their upcoming Bokujou Monogatari game, Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town.

Emilio has just finished up his work and is asking the protagonist if she'd like to join him for a meal. Well of course! He then asks if you liked the cheescake and further inquires what your opinion of it was.

Gosh, I haven't had cheesecake in a long time...

The second candidate is Reina, the museum employee. In this intro, Mayor Victor leaves the protagonist with Reina, leaving her perplexed for a moment. She then asks if the protagonist is interested in power spots? If the protagonist wants to know more about them, she's full of info!

I'll expect we'll learn more about what she's referring to at some point.

Then last night, Marvelous released a new trailer for the Nintendo Switch game:

What we learned from the new trailer include:

How exciting! The game is scheduled to be released in Japan on February 25, 2021, in North America on March 23, 2021, and in Europe/Aus on March 26, 2021.

Until next time!
