Thanks to you! This list is useful!

And yes, some games do not help their graphic section although they offer interesting ideas, the sad reality.

Years ago I tried to create a game, it requires an immense effort (in many aspects) and even using engines that theoretically do everything, since then I have respected those who make them even though their graphics are not the best or are standard.

The difference of having someone with graphic talent in the team or that you have it yourself, or have money! I have neither of them lol

To those unaware Ooblets is entering early access this week but ONLY on Epic Game Store and Xbox One. The Steam release is TBA and there are no plans for the game to come out on anything else currently.

I didn't want to clutter up this thread about it so I made a dedicated thread about Bountiful Life :)

OK, news time. We have some solid dates on some games and some news about some console versions.

- Sakuna of Rice and Ruin will be out on November 20th while Verdant Village and Circadian City will be entering early access on August 4th and September 24th respectively.

- Re:Legend, Staxel, and Littlewood are all having their console ports actively being worked on

- Garden Story and Picontier have been pushed to 2021

- DYSMANTLE, Spiritfarer, Alchemic Cutie, Farming Life, and The Good Life are all still set for 2020 (but keep in mind they might still be delayed)

- Mineko's Night Market is alive

- Ova Magica and Farmer Supreme are prepping for Kickstarters


That's all for now and I've updated the front post accordingly.

Check out Windy Kingdom! It's farming, survival and defense game rolled into one.

Official Trailer

30 minute gameplay

It's early access on Steam. I haven't played it yet. Looks pretty good.

Edit - So I'm watching the video I linked and this game looks cute, gory, and possibly pornographic. Ok, I'm, exaggerating the latter. But you play as a man transported into a kingdom with only women cause all their men have been infected with a disease or something. This is hilarious.

No wonder I completely missed this one. None of their Steam tags fit into where I usually search for new or upcoming farming games. The reviews are mixed, but it IS early access, so I'll add it and keep an eye on it (so that it's not abandoned like some others that used to be on the list).

Now where to put it...

Porn.

Seriously though, I might put down money and try it out later. I watched that 30 minute play through and read the reviews. I definitely think those are issues, but it might not bother me all that much.

Well, well, the Indie showcase had some reveals today. Spiritfarer is releasing TODAY and Garden Story is now coming to Switch (still in 2021). I'll update the list.

This might sound like a strange question, but which of these games have the most detailed\extended fishing activity? I don't want a fishing-only sim, they're too boring and serious\complicated for me, but I really like fishing in games like HM, SoS, etc. So much that in Stardew Valley I kind of 'cheated' by fishing so much that I became rich way too fast... ;)

Oh and another question: are there any games like HM and SoS that aren't centered around gardening? For example, I absolutely LOVE the Graveyard Keeper! It feels exactly like HM (minus marriage), but is also vastly different, b\c you're dealing with keeping a graveyard instead. It's like HM with a unique twist to it, and I wonder if someone else has made a game like that, with exactly the same feel and mechanics as HM\SoS, but not about gardening.

Trying looking into the Legend of the River King series. It's from the makers of Harvest Moon. That's a fishing RPG. Not sure if that's what you want.

For the fishing I'd suggest My Time At Portia or Re:Legend. Both games give unique looks to the fish and have various things to do with them after catching. In MTAP they can be used as gifts, some can be cooked, some can be dried, and you can also breed them. Re: Legend is the same on them all being unique models, but you can also create a fish farm to store your catches and there is a fish racing festival in the game as as well. But if you're more in for a fishing RPG, the River King series might be what you're looking for.

For the non-gardening-centric titles i'd suggest Slime Rancher or My Time at Portia (again). Slime Rancher's farming is unique as you're providing for your slimes in and adventuring around looking for more or exploring for fun. With My Time at Portia, you manage an old workshop where gardening is one of the things you can do. It plays a lot like a HM game in the town interactions (events, dating, marriage) but there's dungeons and combat too, so keep that in mind.

Apparently Picontier is still alive, I have to have hope.

Source: https://twitter.com/picontier/status/12 ... 74336?s=21

Also, if you like fishing in games and want something a little like Secret of Mana or Ragnarok Online, I can wholeheartedly recommend Secrets of Grindea - I have no idea why this game has such a rich fishing mechanic given what kind of game it is (Action RPG), but it does!

It is alive, yes, but the creator basically took a break from it to develop another game, and now he's developing both of them at the same time. One of his recent twitter posts was pretty much 'thanks for your patience and I ask for more to complete my games'. At this point it'll be done when it's done. He's a competent game dev with 4 games under his belt, he's just slow.
