Latest Farming Video Game News

FarmSim 19 and HM Extravaganza | Posted at 01:27 PM on 28 September 2018
Happy Farm'n Friday! Our first attempt at Zucchini-crust Pizza did not turn out well for the crust. The recipe didn't mention greasing the pan the crust was pressed onto, resulting in a zucchini crust disc stuck to the sheetpan. Oops! We're going to try again with parchment paper under the crust. Think we're going to try Dawnstorm's recommended Chicken with Mushrooms and Zucchini soon. We also have Zucchini Alfredo on the menu for this week. We have made this recipe in the past, but I've to go light with the cream cheese because Mr.Fogu doesn't like it.

Farming Simulator 19

This week, Giants Software released a promotional video explaining the different machines players can use to develop their agricultural crops in Farming Simulator 19. Farmers will be using a wide variety of farm vehicles to plow, cultivate, plant, pull weeds, fertilize, and harvest. Wouldn't that be super to have in Harvest Moon or Story of Seasons? I bet Doc could invent something that could automatically pull weeds, since players are expected to pick them up one at a time...

Farming Simulator 19 is scheduled to be released November 20 for PC, Mac, Playstation 4, and Xbox One

Light of Hope Goes Mobile

Earlier this week, Natsume revealed that Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is now available for Apple iOS and Android devices. The full game retails for $15 USD and is a full-game download (in other words, no persistent internet connection is needed to play the game). The mobile edition is the original Steam version and not the Switch/Ps4 Special Edition, so you won't find Soleil or any of the download content bonus features.

Harvest Moon Sale

If Light of Hope isn't your thing, there are several Harvest Moon versions that are for sale during the HARVEST MOON EXTRAVAGANZAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaa. Until October 2, several farming flavors are 50% off:

More HM Merchandise

Natsume also announced that additional Harvest Moon shirts are available from Amazon.com such as a long-sleeved sweatshirt. Also now for sale are Harvest Moon themed mobile phone holders that suction to the back of the phone.

Until next time!
