Stardew for Switch, Good Life, and Sep 4-col Comic | Posted at 05:55 PM on 29 September 2017
Happy Farm'n Friday! Now that the weather is cooling down, the newly-planted spinach seeds have started to sprout. On the other hand, the spinach seeds that didn't sprout during the heat of summer are also beginning to pop up. Now there's spinach sprouts all over the planting bed because the soil (and the embedded seeds) has moved since the summertime seeds were planted. Oh boy...

Stardew Valley for Switch is Getting Closer...

The CEO of Chucklefish Games, the publisher handling the Nintendo Switch version of Stardew Valley, announced earlier this week that the game has been approved for publication on the console. The next step is to set a release date and then it's good to go! Woo!

The Good Life

Last night I sent a tweet out about financial backing for The Good Life, a game in development by White Owls and famed Japanese game director, Swery. But what does it have to do with farming?!" you may wonder. Oh, but it does!

In this game you play as Naomi, a photographer from New York who is heavily in debt. To earn some money she take a reporter job to check out Rainy Woods, a happy little town in the English countryside and home to a variety of unusual villagers. While living in Rainy Woods as Naomi, you take photographs and write reports to send back to the Morningvale newspaper to earn money, but you can also participate in farm-related part-time jobs for the townsfolk such as sheep sheering and milk delivery, or go fishing and mining. Eventually you could even purchase your own sheep ranch or tea plantation to earn more income. The town also goes through four seasons per year. Sounds farmy to me!

But, that's not all the game is about. For some unknown reason the villagers turn into cats at night and don't remember the experience the next morning. Then there's the strange circumstances regarding the dead body. Whaaaat? A who-did-it mystery, magical kitty transformations, and farming? What a combination!

You can check out the official trailer for the game on Youtube:

The downside is that the funding goal is ambitiously high ($1.5 million), so I hope that the game can be published even if the goal isn't met within the next two weeks.

Plus, there's also a photographer named Naomi in the Harvest Moon: Lost Valley/Skytree Village series. I assume it's merely a coincidence, but still kind of neat.
