SoS:FoMT Secret Candidate Revealed, New Kitty Farm'n Game, and Farm Folks at PAX West | Posted at 01:23 PM on 23 August 2019

Happy Farm'n Friday!

The local kids are heading back to school on Monday. It's kind of an odd day to return. When I was a kid in public school our first day was always the Tuesday following the September 3rd federal holiday, Labor Day. A lot of parents are upset with the August start date because it interrupts their family vacations, as traditionally the first day of school was after Labor Day. But on the other side, starting earlier also allows for a 10-day winter break; we only got a 5-day break when I was a kid. So I guess it evens out.

New SoS: FoMT Bachelor

The long-time farming fan site Ranch Story (now restructured as a Wiki, Tumblr, and Reddit board) posted a translation of another interview that took place during ChinaJoy (August 2-5) with the game producer, Hikaru Nakano of Marvelous. You can read more about the interview on the Reddit topic that includes points, such as the game not supporting motion controls, but the GameCores interview also included a screen shot of the male secret bachelor, 布蘭登, which translates into English as "Brandon."

This new character marriage candidate appears to be a woodcarver at Gotz's carpentry shop. Remember that Marvelous already confirmed that the Best Friends system from Harvest Moon DS Cute is built into SoS:FoMT, so Brandon might be a marriage candidate for both protagonist genders; though there's no confirmation yet from Marvelous about the details on which male candidates are available for the male protagonist to court.

Marvelous also tweeted some new videos of Mary's and Doctor's black love event. The replies to the Doctor's event were somewhat mixed, as some of the Japanese players don't like his baby-faced redesign while others like it.

Farm Folks at PAX West

The funded-by-Kickstarter farming game, Farm Folks will be at the Crytivo booth during PAX West next weekend in Seattle, Washington. If you've tickets to the show, you can stop by the Crytivo booth from August 30 to September 2 to play a demo of the game.

Overgrown is still hard at work developing the game. Currently they're posting weekly updates via their Kickstarter page. The alpha-release was launched to applicable backers earlier this month and they've been busy squashing bugs and making improvements.

New Farming Game - Snacko

Do you like cats and farming? Well yes please!! A new kitty-themed farming game is in development for PC and Nintendo Switch by indie developer BlueCurse. Snacko places puuuulayers in charge of restoring the Island of Snacko by building a farm, town, and decorating the area while also discovering why everyone left the island in the first place. MEOWW!

Snacko is a farming cat-venture game. Play as a cat who is determined to revive a once-populated island with many great resources and places to explore. Farm, fish, cook, craft, and fight your way through 4 distinct biomes, each with their unique puzzles, recipes, and creatures. Decorate your farm and town to suit your tastes... maybe you'll even attract some new animal friends to move!

The game is anticipated to be released sometime in 2021. You can learn more about kitty farming on their official website:

Weekly JP Sales

Another week and another jump for Doraemon: Story of Seasons in Japan, moving from #23 to #21 in Famitsu's Top 30 Sales for last week, selling another 2700 copies in its 9th week since release, setting its overall sales to 87,400. Rune Factory 4 Special dropped one slot from #18 to #19, selling 3000 copies and putting its 4-week sales at 50,700.

And yet again, that super-duper fishing game, Fishing Spirits, is still going strong and sold 31,400 copies last week. Gadzooks, that's a lot of fans buying a fishing game!

Until next time!
