Latest Farming Video Game News

New Farm'n listed on Steam Store and Virtual Meeting Backgrounds | Posted at 12:11 PM 2020 5 08 May 2020

The weather has started warming, as this weekend we'll finally hit around 85° F (~30° C). There are a lot of berry plants that have started to bloom: blueberries, strawberries, marionberries (Mr.Fogu's favorite), raspberries, and the lovely fellow pictured above. Long-time Farm'n Friday readers might remember the stories about the white blackberries from last year and their introduction from the year before. Now that the canes are two years old, they've pushed out some blooms and will, hopefully, be producing white-colored Snowbank Blackberries this summer. We're not sure how they'll taste; maybe bitter, maybe sweet? It'll be something to look forward to sharing when things return to some sense of normalcy, and we can visit with our friends and families again.

North America is still awaiting the finalized release date for Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town in English. The game still has a rough date of July 28, which can change to sooner or later, depending on how things go. Preorders are now available in Canada at EbGames.ca, which includes the strawberry cow preorder plushie.

New Stone-age Farm'n in Development

Soda Den Studio has revealed their new farming and town building game, Roots of Pacha, set to be released next year on Steam.

The game sets the player into a vast paradise and tasks them with developing a prosperous society.

They'll also interact with their fellow residents and can even entice people from other clans to join their clan.
